Here Come the Hacks (HCtH) is a Half-Life 2 mod where an elite squad of G-Men are sent to destroy the Combine's latest invention - Comically disguised Manhacks!

Set in a cel shaded, cartoony style environment, HCtH is full of (or will be full of) satisfying explosions and gibs!

Here Come the Hacks is a game meant to play with friends and to just have a good time!
Either test your limits of survival on a survival gamemode map, or see how far you can make it on one of our up coming objective maps!

- A swarm of comically disguised manhacks that are all different in some way or another.
- Objective-based maps to play with friends.
- Co-Op.
- TF2 style graphics.
- Training map.
- Prologue map
- AI modifications to allow manhacks to join together and follow a leader in a swarm.
Lots of weapons, where players start with their bare hands, and get to choose their weapons after completing various objectives.

We are also in need of team members!

1 comment by ZaneByrnes on Jul 9th, 2014

The lead developer on the project, William went to go work on a new project called Optic. As for I, I went to go work on another project as well called "Censored". I literally released no information about it and this will be the first time I even mentioned the name. You'll hopefully see more of it by the end of the summer. While, working on Censored is something I do on my off time, working on Here Come the Hacks! is something I do when I'm off from working on my off time. The original reason the development stopped for a long time is because William and I both agreed that the mod we were both working on was just stale and boring as hell. I just held on to it for a little longer not wanting to kill it. I did a little bit of work on it over time, but nothing has really been "Finished". So today we are releasing all the content for Here Come the Hacks!

This is to say, that development on this project has officially came to a stop.

If you'd like to take over it and make it something then do so. Just let us know, because we'd be interested in seeing what you want to do with it!

- The Here Come the Hacks Team

Here's the release!

That would work.
It just feels a bit... cheap to have cel-shading

There was a similar (now dead) idea before, namely:
I've already stated my opinion there that manhacks are one of the worst enemies in HL2. At least one always hit you no matter how vigilant you are, also they are horrible and unsatisfying to fight against when attacking you in numbers.
Now I can already see you put more effort into this than the other guy did in his mod, but I'm not sure how will this turn out in terms of gameplay. If it's something like the "Suicide Survival" mod with manhacks I can see a potential for it.
Also I like the cel shaded idea (yeah, one can argue it's overused, but I personally can never get bored of it) but the map's textures needs to be cartoony as well for it to really work.

I saw that mod literally seconds after I submitted this here, I had three thoughts- "Oh no!", "Wait a second..." and "Whew, it's dead!"

I agree with you about Manhacks being really horrible, but being chased by large numbers of them (in the form of babies, watermelons and jiggling business men) is far more fun than it sounds. That accidental Garry's Mod creation is what inspired this mod, so that's what I'm trying to emulate- odd things chasing terrified people.

I always edit stuff 5 seconds after posting.
The map textures will be done last.
I silenced their annoying noise.
