If you didn't see the release trailer yet, here it is once again:


We will be live on Podcast 17 next Saturday, 19th of November 2011. It will be also available for download the next week. Check it out if you are interested on hearing our awful accents or how Water was made.

With special thanks to:

To play Water either use the Installer, or use Desura, or unpack the .zip file to SourceMods so that the mod folder is called "water". You will have to have Source SDK Base 2007 installed on your Steam account. You can install Source SDK Base 2007 by accessing the Tools section in your Games Library. You need to have a Source engine game like Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike: Source, or Portal to have Source SDK Base 2007 available.

UPDATE:
If you downloaded the 1.0.2 version or lower and you are having trouble with the skeleton, try downloading the 1.0.3 Patch. For instructions on how to install the patch or if you have other problems: Water Bugs & Problems. The current installer version is 1.0.3 (Water103.exe), download from below:

finally! :)
congrats and thanks goes out to the team, awesome job guys!
unique and outstanding source engine experience - i hope you'll get many downloads and deserved positive feedback.

i know there are many great aaa-title releases the last months (i can't stop playing skyrim f.e.) but seriously, if you're looking for some variety give "water" a chance, it's truly a masterpiece.
