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

Hmm... today is the 25th isn't it ? Ok, so let's say it : Get a Life IS OUT !

Posted by Cide on Apr 25th, 2008

Unfortunately we have some bad news, we need to postpone the release of Get a Life because... well, we knew that it wouldn't work... anyway, no one will read this text, so... OK, GET A LIFE IS OUT !

Get a Life offers:

- about 11 hours of playing time
- 25 different maps
- 61 characters
- 13 weapons
- 24 music tracks
- 76 dialogs, around ten documents to endorse the storyline
- a new gameplay (advanced damage system, bullet time...) new AI, HUD, effects and enemies.

All this with English and French voice acting, provided with English, French, German, Czech, Spanish, Finnish and Swedish subtitles!

To support this amazing buzz, we didn't find anything else than an old trailer:

Well, no more blah blah, let's go ahead ! Please take a seat! Hoping that we're offering you a mod as pleasant as possible, we'll just say the traditional "have fun!"

This mod is in one league with Minerva, Rock24 and Awakening.
And when it comes to innovation it´s without rival. This is so awesome.
Just my ammo counting is flawed. Anyway it´s 10/10 from me. Or is it 12/10?

Oh crap!
I'm the one that translated the mod into Swedish, and if you you're Swedish you'll understand what I'm saying now.
I'm very, very sorry!
I'm sorry for such a poor work! =[

Woah, this is huge! Are you going to write a walkthrough for it? I'm stuck in the catacombs, and could use a little help.

Great mod, I appreciate the effort put into this!

So disappointing. :( The first part was ok, but with rebirth you start a habit of having the player experiment and kill himself over and over in order to find where you want him to go, and this just doesn't let up. The explosives on the stair case, the zombies at the top of the elevator, the injuries in the tutorial, the uselessness of bullet time, the spiders in the damn vent...

I got to the part where a radar appears onscreen and a giant crowd of continuously spawning zombies rush you, and quit. Mod needs a lot of tweaking before I'd play it again.

The flares need to stick to where they hit instead of bounce around, and they need to last much longer, and be a bit brighter.
The bleeding/injury system needs to be toned down.
The levels need to be rebalanced to be comprehendable. Experimentation by death and loading a quicksave should NOT be the solution to a twisty environment!
Shots and reloading in bullet time need to be sped up, and pressing the bullet time button while in slo-mo should drop me out of it back to normal instead of using up another... yellow thing whatever the hell they are uselessly.

dude omg i love this mod!!!!! i play it constantly and it is beautifully done. very original story line (i did notice a map or two that was right out of RE:Apocolypse lol) But this game is amazing. Umm, two things though, the flare gun i never use the flares (they dont work in most areas), and i dont use bullet time, i have like the max you can carry. and im on hard mode. Also could you add an objective box to the game? you still dont have to add a radar but objectives could help you out soo much.

Beat the game...dont understand why people said it was hard. The last boss kind of reminded me of descent for some reason. I liked it! I think I will play through it again on the hardest setting.
