"The wild flying cactus is an elusive species of plant. Hobbies of flying cacti include flying in random directions, saying the word "cactus" repeatedly, and spreading their multi-colored trails of pollen behind them."


Cactus
is an hilariously competitive multi-player game where humans run around in a feeble attempt to catch the elusive flying cacti with various traps and weapons. There are two teams: Humans, and Cacti. Each team has it's own classes and there are plenty of twists and turns in the game play. Objectives are simple: Humans catch as many cacti as they can, and Cacti try to avoid the humans.Don't forget to check out the Steam Group!

Please, feel free to make a map for this. I need better test maps. No slapped-together-shit maps please.

Basic rules:
Humans spawns = info_player_start
Cactus spawns = info_cactus_spawn - Note that cactus ends with "spawn" not "start"

Maps are typically like the HL2DM Killbox style. Keep in mind that this game can support from 1 to 100+ players!

Cactus V2 released

News
I've released Cactus V2! Check out the SVN for most recent updates/fixes.
I cut out a lot of stuff to make it remotely playable.

List of things removed:

  • Powerup Cactus removed.
  • Powerups removed.
  • Ability to spawn as Slow Cactus removed.
  • Human weapons limited to vacuum.

Bugs:

  • Sometimes the Cactus Icon HUD doesn't show when you switch to the cactus team - (???)
  • Sometimes the round system will freeze right before the last round starts - (???)
  • Occasionally people are able to team-kill without meaning to - (Still not sure how this happens)
  • When cacti kill humans with physics, the killer shows up as sent_cactus rather than the player - (I've used SetOwner so this shouldn't be happening either)

Have fun!
