What is Hyp?

Hyp is a competitive top-down shooter.
The players assume control of a covert special forces team funded by the shadow government.
Your team operates in a compartmentalized manner and will engage in missions involving: raids of underground military installations, neutralizing witnesses and evidence, and securing valuable reverse engineered alien technology.
There are six main factions to control, which clash in a secret war, each with their own unique attributes and directives established by their unbeknownst "elite" superiors.

Planned Features:

  • 5 Gameplay modes ( Insta-Gib mutator for all gameplays )
  1. Co-op
  2. Deathmatch
  3. Team Deathmatch
  4. Elimination ( Last Man Standing - think aim maps )
  5. Scenario
  • Over 40 weapons
  • 4 playable factions, each with individual weapon loadouts.

  • Spawn Protection: Say good bye to spawn killing, spawns are chosen randomly and protected by a radius. ( If an enemy player is inside this radius the game will not spawn you there. )
  • Multiplier Score System
  • Direct Aim: Holding the ALT key allows you to target any specific spot on the walls or the floor. Useful for shooting barrels or props out of your way.
  • Dynamic Bullet Spread

Thank you everyone that helped us get Steam green lighted! I'm very pleased about that, despite somehow having more no votes than yes lol. No worries, with new illustrations being worked on, we will have a much better time promoting the game in the near future.

I have uploaded a new video! In the video, an updated version of skygrounds can be seen and the latest iteration of our flashy particle effects.

The SPK ( Russian faction ) will spawn with TWO item_vodkas instead of a single medkit ( which heals 50hp ).
Drinking each vodka will heal 25hp and we plan to make the character throw/smash the bottle into the ground when he is done drinking. As always, you can not have enough destruction! Also, we have way more gibbable models in the game now, so expect a good ol' smashing!

With that out of the way.. I would like to announce that I have begun pimping our HYP facebook page!
So please hop on over there and give us a like! Exclusive development pics and other goodies can be found there.
Hypovolemia Facebook Page!
I would like to see the community unified in someway before our upcoming/second release.
There's nothing more I would love to see than at least 1,000 likes on our Facebook before we unleash 0.2.

So hit us up and show your support, go go go!

Aiming is awful. Starting with a pistol is also awful.

If you don't like the mod don't play simple as that.

If you're not using SHIFT to raise your weapon and aim, of course it's going to be difficult. Also remember to use ALT to change the pitch of your gun if you're not aiming at another player. Finally, good luck hitting anything at a distance if you're moving, post up and take shots for maximum accuracy.

SHIFT doesn't really do anything except giving slightly better accuracy. To me, the entire aiming scheme looks awkward. Also, how am I supposed to shoot somebody who is at a distance and slightly above/below me? Hold SHIFT+CTRL+ALT? That's just stupid.

All you have to do is put your crosshair over their marine the game automatically adjusts your pitch for you.

You only need to hold shift and alt, not control. You do have five fingers ;)

using ALT (directaim) is not really needed at all unless you're trying to shoot somebody thru a wall or prefiring downward

Oh, I didn't know that. The aiming is still incredibly awkward, though, even without requiring 10 fingers on each hand.

Why do you dislike aiming? and you need to go find some other weapons if you expect to survive >:D

CTRL gives you the same accuracy boost as SHIFT ... so you don't need to "SHIFT+CTRL+ALT" and besides like I said earlier you don't even need to use ALT "directaim" because just by hovering crosshair over enemy marines the game will adjust the aiming pitch for you.

The mod doesn't save your controls in the settings menu when you customize them and it resets all the controls in Alien swarm to those in Hyp mod, please fix this soon.

I played on the server earlier it kept crashing, is there any way to fix it?

Was your client crashing or the server? I don't see any server crashes on this end... If you have any *.mdump files in your steamapps/common/alien swarm/ folder, (make sure to only look for ones that are from the time you were playing hyp, they won't be labeled "hyp") I would be grateful if you could send them to ibemad@gmail.com

Everyone got disconnected and lost connection to the server, then after a short while it came up again and after the 3rd time this happened it went down.
