Just as mankind is on the brink of extinction from a deadly pandemic, Extraterrestrials establish contact and offer a "cure" (an organism from their home planet). Although the majority of the population is afflicted by the raging virus and have no other option, a small minority immune to the virus resist the organism. Due to Mans inability to coexist, a social division emerges masking the presence of this hostile organism.

Players can either choose to play as the Human Resistance and fight back the rising threat of the Necrotrophs, or wipe clean the dirty slate of humanity. With abilities like: picking up any melee weapon, radar (to coordinate attacks), nightvision, and more, the Necrotrophs are very dangerous. While the Resistance may be outnumbered, with an inventory, ranged and melee weapons to choose from, and ironsights, the Resistance are also no slouch.

As the title suggests, we are looking for serious and dedicated server admins who have experience operating and running dedicated servers. More specifically, we are looking for someone to help us fine-tune the server files. The ideal server admin is someone who can host a test server for us 24/7 and can swap files quickly when contacted. If you are interested in working with us, please respond below.

Please keep in mind, this is NOT a request for beta testers or for people to actually play the mod. The server admins who apply here will get only the required server files (no client.dll).

From what I can tell they are clearly doing the final stages of online testing, all the content was pretty much dont for this mod months ago and now we wait for them to work out the bugs and iron out the creases. It's a shame Valve stopped supporting the modding community, these guys DESERVE Steamworks support...

Empires Mod was released on Steamworks just recently. They didn't stop supporting, it's just Steamworks is Orange Box only, and it has to be of the highest quality and bug free.

NeoTokyo is high quality, and bug free, sure no one plays it, but the reason it's not on Steamworks is because it's not on the Orange Box. There is a list of requirements to be on Steamworks these days, and one of the requirements is to be using the latest version of Source.

Though yeah, I'd love to see this mod on Steamworks.

I guess that beta never came, not sure. Anyways then, that is weird, but I was pretty sure all Steamwork mods were Orange Box, at least that's what other mod developers said was required to get on it. Dunno, maybe they just thought so.
