The Account: Human Resources is a sidestory created by Cayenne Chris Conroy, creator of the original podcast Teknikal Diffikulties, and Caedyn Danow, a mostly intermediate modder looking to make something great. Currently the mod is low on resources (hah) including humans (hah hah) that can model, so currently all we have is a base concept of a couple maps, a lot of dialogue, and a story. But don't worry; soon we'll have extremely good media on our hands.

What is this "Account" you speak of?

The Account: Human Resources is based off of the podcast called Teknikal Diffikulties by Cayenne Chris Conroy. A story that was part of the podcast was dubbed The Account: A Tale of the Waking World, which followed a corporate "knight" Sir Hanover Phillips, previously working in the Human Resources department of the Metadyne corporation, and was briefly knighted and sent away on a mission to investigate the Ave Nova corporation: a corporation that seemed to have passed off an infected "account" to them. The so-called "account" then began draining the company of its resources.

Then what's this mod about?
The Account: Human Resources follows a normal employee of Metadyne named Liam Watson who's been assigned to destroying the monsters spawned by the Account, doing cleanup on the people it's claimed, and seal it back up to prevent further damage.

So then what's the mod like?
The Account: Human Resources is like any other first-person shooter mod for Source, but not one of those "durr hurr combines and stuff" mods. Because of "corporate culture" (see "Meet the Janitor") the Metadyne building does have some weapons locked up in case of an emergency, and oh look, an emergency. So go ahead and unload 10+ weapons on an advancing horde of demonic beasts, alien-like creatures, and the Account itself as you free your coworkers from the control of The Account. You won't be completely alone, of course.

So all you do is shoot monsters. Sounds boring!
Trust me, this is not Doom. You want features?

  • Interchangeable ammo types like fire, ice, poison, and more
  • More than 10 weapons, both firearms and otherwise
  • Plenty of allies along the way
  • Many tributes to both the Tekdiff podcast and Half-Life 2 in both regular play and easter eggs
  • Voice acting by none other than Cayenne himself
  • Even more still to come!
