Lambda Wars (formerly called Half-Life 2: Wars) brings the struggle between the human resistance and their Combine overlords to a multiplayer real-time strategy setting. The Lambda Wars beta only requires Alien Swarm installed to play. It features 3 multiplayer game modes: Sandbox, Annihilation and Overrun, showcasing the Rebels and Combine playable factions and a full-fledged RTS interface and HUD. There is also a singleplayer tutorial and a handful of singleplayer missions.
The Lambda Wars requires Alien Swarm to play (free).

Hi folks! We're back with the latest update for Lambda Wars: Beta 2.3.6. This is a pretty minor release that mostly focuses on bug fixing, updating the internal version of Python and some other small improvements to game balance, sound and visuals. You can read the full changelog at the end of this post. This release does not have an incremental patch, so you'll have to download the full EXE or zip file below (approximately 1gb) to install.
Stay tuned though, because as you remember we were Greenlit early this year and we're still moving steadily towards our inaugural release on Steam later this year. More details on that soon!

We're still looking for a gameplay UI designer to help us rebuild the interface (menus/lobby first and eventually the ingame interface) in HTML5 via Chromium Embedded Framework. If you're a visual designer adept with CSS and JS and have a knack for UI/UX get in touch via our recruitment forum.
