In "The Hidden", players choose the role of either a near invisible killer, Subject 617, or one member of an Intercept squad who have to capture him, I.R.I.S. In the simple but challenging gameplay of an 'one against all'? mode, Subject 617 creeps/sneaks through the maps armed only with a knife and three pipe bombs. The IRIS team carry a selection of weaponry, fully customisable at round start, from F2000 assault rifles through to shotguns or sub machine guns as well as a pistol as a secondary weapon. However, they can hardly see Subject 617 as, just like the 'Predator', only the outline of his silhouette is visible. On top of that the Hidden also moves a little faster and has many abilites such as pouncing, wall grabbing, corpse pinning and the fatal pigsticker attack. Therefore co-operation is necessary for I.R.I.S. if they wish to prevail (if they dont want to become the prey/victim themselves). This leads to an outstanding gaming experience on public servers:...

Progress on the next release goes well - there's a (nearly) up to date change log on the forum for our internal build that shows how much progress is being made. Right now, we fully intend to get a release out in time for IGF around mid March so we have new shiny things to show off while we're there (though it'll be 2a that gets judged).
On a side, 1up.com have featured us in their 1UP show - a weekly video cast that features game reviews and whatnot. They give us a good turn and talk about some of our upcoming features. The entire thing is hugely positive and makes us warm and glowy inside.
Go here to find links for downloads or a streaming version of the video - our section starts at 3:00 and runs for about 7 minutes or a cutdown version that just pertains to the Hidden Source review can be downloaded from here and only weighs in at a lowly 65MB, containing both WMV and Quicktime formats.
