About MechMod MechMod is a total conversion of the Half-Life 2 engine and is based on Mecha or Mechs. We have already released a primary Alpha 1.0 version of the mod, which was based on mechs taken from the Gundam and Macross/Robotech series. Alpha 1.0 was a 'test' release which the team put together while waiting for Half-Life 2 to go public, and the Alpha is also considered as a stepping stone towards something much bigger. MechMod stresses the importance of strategy, player reflexes, and teamplay all put together. Whether you want to play fast-paced and go on the offensive, or whether you want to take it easy and concentrate on building up your defenses - MechMod has all the options available for you. The player has the ability to pick from different classes of mechs and customize them to his/her needs and desires. The customization will not only affect the aesthetics of your mech, but also the feel and usage of it. You may support your team by building structures and turrets...

It has been more than two years since this modification started, and the development team has come a far way in learning new skills and putting their potential to academic use by developing this free online voluntary project known as MechMod.

Back then, we were an eager team anxious to create a modification and we succeeded where a stupendous majority of other mods failed; we released a playable version with thousands of downloads counted. However, as time has moved on, many of our developers have progressed into a more demanding routine with college and jobs. Since a majority of our development team is now busy with such activities, the MechMod project is being closed down so that we may concentrate on that which is more important for prospective students of the games development industry such as ourselves. It has been a wonderful ride, and we have learnt many things along the way, but it is time for us to focus our energies elsewhere. It has been an absolute pleasure working on this project, and the entire development team shares the same sentiment.

I would like to thank the hundreds of people who have supported this project and stuck with us from start till end. Although probably anonymously, I am sure we will meet again in the games industry somewhere and somehow.
