Hello survivors! Are you stockpiling for the apocalypse? The team is. We are stocked, locked, and loaded in preparation for release.

Since we ported over to Source 2013, we were able to include Mac and Linux support for No More Room in Hell! Now everyone can kill zombies equally despite their preference in operating system. We have been getting a lot of the same questions recently so I compiled the most frequent ones below and answer them for you guys.

How much will it cost? -
No More Room in Hell will be 100% free. Zero microtransactions. That means you pay nothing. I'm serious.

When will it be released? -
It will be available October 31st, 2013 - SO SPOOKY!

Will I need Half-Life 2 or will it be standalone? -
You will need Half-Life 3. Just kidding. It will be standalone. You will only need a valid Steam account.

Pre-load? -
NO. Unfortunately we are unable to provide a pre-load for our game.

Will there be updates to the game after release? -
YES. The game is still in Beta. We want to make sure the game is as bug free as possible and feature complete before we consider it out of beta. We will be rebalancing, updating art, replacing existing systems with new and better ones, adding more game modes, maps, and more!

Can we donate to the team? -
NO. We appreciate the support, but our team is far too large and the project has seen numerous contributors over the years that have come and gone. It would be impossible to distribute donations evenly.

How can I help with the project? -
We are always looking for talent to help us make NMRiH the best zombie game ever. The areas we need help in the most are:

- Animators with Source engine knowledge
- Programmers with Source engine knowledge
- Character modelers
- Level designers

To apply, post an application on our forums: Nomoreroominhell.com

If you have any other questions we would be happy to answer them in the comments! Thanks!

Unfortunately no. Consoles would never allow us to put a free game on their systems. If developing for consoles was indie friendly like the PC, then we would. That will never happen though.

Thank Valve for supporting mod and indie developers. :)

Half-Life 3 Is confirmed but the devs don't want to release info about it.

Could you write somewhere list of all custom enitities of the mod with explanation what for are used? I would like to make one or another map for the mod in some time (this will take lots of time, coz I have lots of work also, but one custom map is better than no maps).

We will be working on putting out tutorials for all things NMRiH soon. Right now we are too busy getting ready for release, but it is on our to-do list!

There is no rush, take your time :) I still have to repair my laptop, what will take about week or more and I have to learn the differences between GoldSource engine and Source engine mapping too.
Thanks for reply :)
