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.

I've decided to start development on Suicide Survival again. But for this I'll need help so I'm looking for an experienced c++ coder to be part of the core development team. The ideal candidate would've the following features:

  1. at least a year of experience coding with C++
  2. familiar with the source engine and how it works
  3. at least 20 hours or more free time per week
  4. a dedicated worker and a fast learner

In return I can offer you the following:

  • A professional and experienced game designer to work with.
  • Work on a under-developed game that - with a little help - will sky rocket.
  • A large and established fan base.
  • The potential outlook to release the mod as a standalone game on Steam.

If this sounds exciting to you then send me an e-mail with some information about yourself, your coding experience and why you want to work on Suicide Survival. You can reach me at: hello at

Thank you and I'm looking forward to meeting you.

Yeah, loved the simple but funny ideo of this mod and it really would need some improvements to get much more better... But, I do not think that a "standalone release" would be so good, exept you change so much of this game that it will be completly different from what it is now, or, if you think bout micro-payment a la 2 $ (or somewhere around this, but not much more). I t is not the right game for suc a step imo.

But I wish you good luck with the search and the future of this, really funny, mod :)

Interested, but have to dissapoint you, since I'm not nearly dedicated enough, nor have my own PC available and logging that time is just not possible without. I'm wonder what humongus things you have planned to require 20 hours per week programming though.

Anyway, have you considered going to the UDK? I'd say it's biggest worry with that would be the server browser deal(assuming that's still an issue), but the bonus of being standalone would draw in more people(I hope :P)

Also idea: A semi tower defense kinda game, gardeners move along set paths to... gardeneer stuff, players have to strategically position themselves and set off traps and **** by their own suicides.

Well, that sounds like a lot of work actually, but just spewing stuff ^_^

OMG STANDALONE GAME ON STEAM! I remember first trying this out when it was released and was on the server when MODDB staff were on getting footage for the mod :D. It will be so cool if it became a game, plus I can show my superiority over the newfags by saying 'Suicide Survival? Chea, I played that back in the good ol' days when it was a mod' :D

Hmm, I could contact a very hard coder for you guys,
but I think this will not be possible actually,
he's very busy, but he writes like 10 thousands lines of game codes a day! He's Myamoto 2.0 and he's a great contact of me, idk if hes avaible, sorry...

I will weep if this doesn't make an epic comeback. This is one of the most amazing and simple game ideas I've ever seen and it deserves some serious polishing (and when it's all said and done, maybe a $5 price tag).

Just don't lose the suicide screams or the quotes. I beg of you.
