7 comments by Urby on Dec 3rd, 2014

Several sites featured our news article as thousands of Internet goers shared and retweeted. Reactions were mixed of course. For every person saying that the GoldSource engine still held up today, another would ask "What's the point?"

We have voiced our opinions on the GoldSource engine before in our Q&A videos. It's a part of gaming history, it's classic, it's clunky, it's frustrating, it's... lovable. The sheer number of projects both long running and new on this now 16 year old engine just goes to show that several people still have a special place in their heart for what is essentially a finely mangled Quake engine. :D

We don't expect to get anywhere near as many votes as last year, but we appreciate all the support we get from our followers and if you feel we're still worthy.

For old times sake, here are some of the most popular images from 2014.

Looks very impressive, but will this work on Linux? I know that most of the single player mods don't because of the missing .dll-s.

Are we going to see the crowbar again or are you putting your own little twist on the melee weapon?

Ever tried twisting a crowbar? Those things are SOLID.
That said, we twisted the **** out of it and a new melee weapon is indeed present. Not convinced it's as iconic as a crowbar, but when **** hits the fan you just gotta grab what's nearby.

Our zombies don't even have mouths so I guess we're ahead of the curve there. :D

Sadly we couldn't keep our idiotic dog mouth in the Dub Suite long enough to record his yapping, so we'll have to stick to more traditional zombie sounds. Hope you're not too disappointed.
