RE: COLONEL H. GLOVER
In 1966 Darrow Chemical Company was ordered by the military to develop the top secret chemical Trioxin. They were told it would be for marijuana defoliation. An accidental leak into the Pittsburgh VA Hospital morgue resulted in a contamination that literally reanimated corpses. The Army Corps of Engineers contained the bodies in a cryonic state inside airtight biohazard drums. A shipment of six drums was lost in the rushed transport to a storage facility.
The bio-warfare experimentation that could create indestructible soldiers in the event of war was launched using this new weapon, 2, 4, 5 Trioxin. The military’s orders to medical supply warehouses for cadavers are common and assumed to be for ballistic tests.
What the Army did not know is that the lost Easter Eggs had been rotting in the basement of the nation’s largest medical supply warehouse in an industrial park outside Louisville, Kentucky.
All was revealed the night of Friday, July 3, 1984 and by Independence Day, 12 hours after the last Egg hatched, yet another cover up had begun…
The July Fourth 1984 Industrial Disaster of Jefferson County
Q: Will we beable to shoot off body parts?
A: Yes some body parts will be flying off, were still working on the system to do this and make it look as real as we can.
Q: Will I need Half-Life 2 in order to play D.E.A.D?
A: Yes. Because D.E.A.D will be using the Half-Life 2 engine (Source), you will need the original game in order to play D.E.A.D.
Q: Is there a release date?
A: Not at this moment, it takes alot of work to complete a mod and things cannot be rushed because it will only effect the quality of the mod, so we are taking our time and making sure every detail as been looked at.
Q: How will this mod be different from all the other HL² zombie mods that are being made?
A: There seems to be a great deal of zombie style mods being made now that the Source engine is out, but with our mod we think we will be adding features to the game to make ours stand out a bit more than the others, some of which will kept secret until a later date.
We do however wish all the other mods the best of luck, we have no interest in mod wars, every mod has there own unique element that makes them special.
