Suicide Survival is a modification of Half-Life 2 Deathmatch. There are two teams. You either play as an overweight WW2 pilot in the survivor team or as a suicider disguised as a pot plant in the suicider team. The goal for the survivors is to stay alive and to spot the suiciders. They have a couple of throw-able copies of the book: “Gardening for Beginners – by Barbara Bush” as a self-defense weapon. The goal for suiciders is to sneak up close enough to the survivors in order to blow themselves up. Because each map is full of shrubberies its very hard to spot a real suicidal pot plant among the many fake ones. If a shrubbery isn’t moving, you can’t tell if he is being controlled by another player or not. Currently the game doesn’t have any other goal then being simple team deathmatch. However it still is a lot of fun and you should definitely try it out with a few friends.

Release date for 1.2 announced and some screenshots of a new map!

Posted by judasbenhur on Nov 5th, 2012

Hi fans of explosions!

I've got some updates for you. While we're still working as much as we can on version 1.2, Derek got the new survival game mode almost ready for testing. While Clément made some desert related assets and is currently working on a new map. Check out the following screenshots:

And I'm in the process of ironing out the last bugs of the new tool that will allow mappers to set the model for the suiciders. Which reminds me that we're still looking for help with some new maps for version 1.2. So if you're still unsure whether to help us out or not. Now is the time!

Additionally we now also joined the social media bandwagon and created an official Facebook page ready for your likes. We'll use this to post updates and also to answer questions. Not that you guys ever ask me anything but just in case. Hit it up at:

Last but not least we would like to announce that we're trying to finish up version 1.2 by the end of the year. Hopefully we'll make some pre-christmas release date :)

Thats it for now. Thank you for reading!

Glad to see you final restarting work on this project. I remember you had some stuff in the works but nothing was ever released from there. By the way, can you update the GameConfig. on moddb please so I can edit my old map "ss_an_arena_dev". I'm a way better mapper now than 4 years ago.

Reason I ask is because I'm getting that lovely grid error again where the grid does not show up. :(

I don't think that the Gameconfig is soley the problem, because I did everything correct and I'm getting this error were when I go into hammer, there's no grid or map view available. I've tried looking for tutorials on how to fix the issue, but nothing worked as of right now I'm working in CS:S with the textures ported into the game. Gonna see how the models do from there.

But at the moment I'm just re-fixing ss_an_arena_dev with a new theme and gameplay fixes.
