SCENARIO In "Get a Life" you embody Alexander Zemlinsky, a subway technician suffering from leukaemia. Alex is not, unlike the protagonists in most games, an invincible super-soldier. But you wouldn't call him normal either, because there is something in his past that connects him with the events that are about to happen in the course of the story (we want to keep the suspense, so nothing more on that...). FEATURES * GaL will run on the latest version of the Source Engine, so that means you'll see HDR and the enhanced shadow system (as seen in HL2: Episode 1) in "Get a Life" as well * To give the player the best gaming experience possible, GaL will offer a custom HUD, an innovative healing system with several damage zones, drugs that will trigger a "bullet-time" effect, upgradeable weapons and enhanced enemy AI * About 11 hours of gameplay * 24 maps with varied environments * 61 characters * 13 weapons

Get a Life : 2 days left! Impatient? Well, here's something to hold you over.

Posted by Cide on Apr 23rd, 2008

We set up a Goodies section on the website (Media > Goodies). It's only accessible to those who end the mod! The password is provided at the end of the generic and will allow you to access to several bonus (unfinished maps/weapons, artworks, tricks, easter eggs, succinct storyline, our best bugs, etc.).

Besides the languages we talked about last friday, Finnish and Swedish subtitles will also be available !

To hold on these 2 days, here are some gameplay sequences, captured during the beta tests :

In addition we are looking for hosts for the binaries of the mod (about 700 MB).

an advanced damage system? awesome. Will having an arm in the red render some guns useless because they require 2 hands to use or will it just have less accuracy. Personally, id like to see the first one. Less accuracy seems pretty cliche.
