Scientist Hunt is a Half-Life modification which makes murdering scientists the objective of the game. There are two teams, and each team must compete to murder more scientists than the other team in one of three seperate modes of play. SH also features two non-team-based modes of play with entirely different player scenarios, named Live In Fear and Madness. New features include enhanced scientist physics, completely new scientist AI, and much more.

Basically, you blow scientists heads off with hammers, crowbars, chainsaws, and almost all other half-life weapons. Very sweet, they run around. Good targed practice.

A Steam compatible version of Scientist Hunt has been released! This is small update fixes errors when running on the Steam platform, such as lack of key bindings. The changes are:

Ingame action Ingame action Hundreds Of Scientists

  • Added Steam support
  • New splash screen
  • New games icon

This is an optional update as no core files have been changed. The original mod was created by Rich Whitehouse, I merely converted it. If anyone is interested I can run a dedicated server for a few days.

Whenever I try to launch this in Steam (with the Steam version), it justs loads HL1 and not the mod. (I checked, it's definetly normal HL1) Is there any way to fix this?
