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.
Hey everyone, I'm way over due with some update as to what has been going on with Suicide Survival. So here are some important news:

I'm currently in my last semester of my BA in game design. So all my time is being focused on the diploma project which of course is a game (DUN! DUN!). I still haven't decided if it will be a new version of Suicide Survival or something totally new. I'll make an update once that has been solved.
On the ModDB.com "Mod of the Year Awards" Suicide Survival was voted into the "top 22 released Half-Life 2 mods of 2008" by you. Thank you very much for your votes.
Another important news is that I'm one of the few selected students to receive an GDC Student Scholarship sponsored by the IGDA. This means I'll be at the Game Developers Conference in a couple of days. I'm super excited and feel very honored to have received this scholarship. This will not only be my first time visiting the US, but also my first time meeting so many big time game developers.
If you are visiting GDC as well or are from San Francisco and want to meet the guy behind Suicide Survival then drop me a mail.
Alternatively you can also follow my newly created Twitter page which I'll keep updated about the trip, the GDC and my diploma project.
Thats about it with the current things going on. More news after the GDC.
