While you have to satisfy your daily needs such as eating or sleeping , you'll need to guess who of the other player is the alien before he turns you into one.
So this is a "the thing " gamemode for garry's mod 10.
An average game last about 15 minutes.
You start at a random position in a spaceship. One of the player is an alien with an human form , so you can't see he is an alien host. The alien can turn into his alien form at any time. When he is in alien form , you can't see his name aswell , so the only way to be sure that a player is alien is to see him transforming .
Note : The alien is chosen 2 minute after the game as started , after this , all player that join are alien spawn (can't use human form).
The point of this game is trying deduce wich players are aliens. And kill them , before they kill you.
At the beginning , you don't have any weapons. Weapons can be picked up but their weigh prevent you from carrying too much.
Players have 4 different type of needs : Eating , going to toilet , sleeping , and washing themselves.
Several time in a game they are given randomly one of the 4 different needs. They need to sastify it by going to a specific place. They have a randomly set countdown to acomplish it. If they don't before it's over , they die (and become spawn).
Players can kill each other , when a player is'nt killed by an alien , he respawn as a minor alien spawn wich is unable to turn into human form but has infinite respawn. If he is killed by a "true alien" (able to turn into human form) he become a "true alien".
If an alien kills human under it's human form he will die
Aliens can see if other players are aliens or not.
Humans win if all "true aliens" have been killed. They lose if they all die.

The Parasite gamemode (it's how Garry's mod 10 mod are called) , after less than two months of development , was released (with one person working on it). Because of the easy lua implementation of garry's mod and the contribution of new modders, Parasite will continue to evolve very fast.
Parasite is a multiplayer "the thing" like , in wich humans have to fight for survival against aliens and other humans , because anyone could be an alien disguised into an human form.
You can actually help the mod if you are a web designer/webmaster by creating a small homepage for the mod. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
