Steam Defense is a FPS-style tower defense mod with a lot of Strategy, FPS and RPG aspects involved. The mod is set in a steampunk sci-fi environment, and it's based upon the Source engine (Half-Life 2, Orange Box). It's also made with multiplayer cooperation as it's main focus. The basic gameplay evolves around defending a certain location from incoming waves of enemies. At the beginning of a game each player chooses one of two classes, "Engineer" or "Arms", and by using the various skills provided by these classes the players must defend their base. Engineers use towers and automated defense mechanisms to fight off enemies. They have to strategically plan out where to lay down defenses, and additionally provide strategic support for the other players. Armsmen use weapons and their own physical abilities to fight off enemies. They have to be very mobile to provide support wheverer it's needed, and always be on their alert against unforseen threats.

A public alpha release is just around the corner! The mod is not nearly yet done when it comes to the modeling, mapping and animation, but by using the Half-Life 2 models as dummys we have made the game as close to playable as possible for a public alpha test.

As this is the first time since the development startet that the mod has been publicly announced, I would like to inform everybody about the current state of the game.

We do not have enough active modelers and mappers. As a result we only have a few custom models implemented in the game so far. We also lack in concept artists, which additionally has severely crippled the current progress on the art front. The only really thing that has been worked on so far is the gameplay, and instead of sitting around waiting for some extra crew to pop up, we have desided to release the mod for a public alpha test in a few days.

More news about the release will come when the actual mod is uploaded to moddb.
