9 comments by Colossal on Jan 24th, 2014

Alive & Kicking is now officially on Steam Greenlight! And at the time of writing this article, we're actually #1 of 1,515 games in Greenlight - all thanks to your support. Hopefully it can maintain its position and earn a place on Steam in the next round of games. If you haven't yet seen Alive & Kicking on Greenlight, click here.

Meanwhile, the mod itself continues to take shape. In the last large batch of screenshots, we showed how we reworked our lighting and cleaned up the tests. The decision to do this mostly came from urging from the community, but also because we felt like the previous visual theme was inconsistent and made the mod feel sloppy. After posting those screenshots, we actually made entirely new textures for the maps, combining the design of Portal 2's textures with the grungy characteristic concrete from the first Portal.

Thanks for your support so far - with your help, we can get A&K onto everybody's favorite distribution platform. Expect even more media updates if and/or when we finally make the cut!

Is this mod still going on? I know it's alot of work, but we don't really get updates on what's going on, so I feel a little in the dark.

We're still going, but development has slowed as a few of us are going back to school and whatnot

You guys should ask to use this skin: It's very reminiscent of the first Portal's Chell, yet in the style of Portal 2. I understand that you guys may want to create your own skin for Chell out of pride, but I personally think that no skin would fit better than this one, under any circumstances. The mod is looking great by the way, and I can't wait for it!

It would be nice to see a demo pack of one or two levels, even as standalone levels to load through the Portal 2 console, but it's nice to know this mod is still alive.

There is a lot of controversy going on with putting a price tag over the Aperture Tag mod. Do you plan charging for A&K, or will it still be free? I am losing faith in all the great mods that are in progress out there.

Maybe you could make the pellet-catchers turn orange when they catch the high energy pellet??

I can't tell if the models in the screenshots are up to date with what we have currently, but as of right now, the catchers do indeed swap to an orange skin when they're activated.
