Post news Report content RSS feed Nazi Zombies Source 2 is shutting down for good.

Our team is slowly falling apart and our coder has mysteriously disappeared again. We have all decided it is time to call it quits.

Posted by Xieneus on Nov 27th, 2012

The NanoSwarm team is sad to announce that we're ceasing development of Nazi Zombies Source 2 for good. Maccadoolie, our coder, has mysteriously disappeared yet again. Our work cannot continue without him.

Other team members have left due to his absence.

So what does this mean for the project itself? Well, we're killing it. It will probably never see the light of day as a fully functioning and public beta.

Many people have been asking me to release the project in its current state. I am not going to release the current build of NZS2 for multiple reasons. The mod frequently crashes, many placeholders are still in place, many weapons do not function and many more reasons.

If you really, really want to try the barebones project you can find the original, first release of Nazi Zombies Source on Maccadoolies profile. None of his individual work is apart of the current build.

Another mod is also doing what we were trying to do in NZS2. You can check out "Aftermath Source" here:

NanoSwarm would like to thank all of you for your support during development. You guys really did keep us going. I will update this article with the whereabouts of Maccadoolie if need be.

Keep the carnage going - Xieneus & the entire NanoSwarm team.

Either release what you got, or give it to aftermath source. Win either way.

it is a shame that you stopped the dev on this mod, the more so just because one team member can't be found (again?).
and like JLG81 says, there are more coders in the world then just this one. but, just do what you think is best although i always think it is a HUGE shame when a mod dies, all that work for nothing.
personally i would at least then release what you have, maybe not so much so people can play it, but so other developers can use your assets in there mods and map(packs).

however, thanks for letting us know. i know this has to hurt you, to write this here down.

at least release what you have and maybe others can continue it? If a mod dies and the team doesn't at least do that, then they are lazy.

Why not just release what you have? There are many people that can look past placeholders and such.

But it doesn't matter that it crashes. It's still in ( permanent ) beta. Every mod crashes when initially released. Heck, even sometimes Black Mesa crashes. You should still release it. It's PUNISHING us to not release it, even if it crashes.
