Engine: Xash3D with mod XashXT by Unkle Mike


You are in the shoes of David Isaac, a 35 years old worker sent from his laboratory in the USA to the Groot Kelder Research Institute in Africa to check the functionality of a particle accelerator. The scientists in Groot Kelder also study the creatures from Xen that survived the nuclear blast from Black Mesa. Of course the experiment goes wrong, all the Xen creatures escape and new aliens will soon come...(to be continued)

Hello people !

Today, we will be talking about the currently implemented graphical features and the bug fixes. The first thing worth attention is the physics. The existing physics engine (PhysX) was causing a slight lag, and some objects flew in the air just by touch.

We also added color correction, enhanced the existing bloom. That's considered very good, knowing that it's just a two-devs game :). The list of our To Do's filled with tasks like a physics gun (similar to Gmod13), dynamic shadows, lens flares, a better particle system, normal/specualr/gloss mapping support, new renderer... and the list goes on. For those of you interested in helping us out, please don't hesitate to send us a message !

Contact BurnerMan (everything that has to do nothing with coding) or Abdullahsaleh15 (programmers send here). Looking forward to present an awesome and entertaining game !

To conclude this post, here's some new screenshots showing the graphical progress :

Do I have to use Xash3D to play this mod? Or is it going to run in the normal GoldSrc engine?

No, you don't need Xash to play alpha version, engine was changed recently.

I loved the Alpha! My only qualm is the dialogue's sound quality and overly slow crouching, but everything else was incredible.
