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.

Hello people from the internet

Here we are with another exciting update post about whats going on in the world of Suicide Survival 1.2 development. First things first: a couple of weeks ago popular Youtube star SeaNanners made a short video of him playing Suicide Survival with some friends and ever since the popularity skyrocketed. Which is pretty amazing considering the current version is 4 years old and filled with embarrassing animation errors (PS: sorry about that). None the less people love the game which makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :) <3 Lets not forget that around 1 million people have heard my Yalala scream which sometimes is pretty hard to wrap my mind around.

Right, onward to more serious things. We did an internal playtest of the new survival game mode couple of weeks ago and it actually went pretty well. Thanks to Derek for coding this together. The new mode turns the game into a round based game similar to Counter-Strike. Everyone starts off as a survivor. At the start of each round one or more players will be randomly selected and turned into suiciders. If you die as survivor you'll become a suicider. The round is over if a time limit has been reached or if there are no survivors are left alive. All of this works but we've a few bugs to fix and make the whole thing more pretty for you guys before we'll release version 1.2. Hopefully this wont take too long.

The other big news is that two new brave souls joined our team. Dear internet, please meet: Roman Schmid and, Jacob aka. Darth Brush.Roman will help us out with the code which will hopefully raise the bar on what we can get done. This is his first time working with the Source Engine but he did a few really good flash games. Hit up his website if you want to try them out. Jacob on the other hand has a lot experience working with the Source Engine. He created the really popular Left 4 Dead custom campaign "Dead before Dawn" among other works such as Portal 2 "The Core", Half-Life 2 "Zombie Panic" and Half-Life 2 "No more room in Hell". He agreed to make a few maps for the mod and we're looking very forward to that and you guys should too! :)

All right, thats about it. If you're bored why not like our Facebook-Page and maybe next time there will be cake? Also spring is coming so it might be a good idea to trim your bushes. Just saying...

YES! I started playing this while I still didn't have a good connection.
And more recently could never find anyone to play. I hope this brings you a lot more players!
One of the most underrated multiplayer pc games... EVER!
