You woke up in some kind of prison and are going to get out. You don't have an HEV suit, so be careful, you receive as much damage as you give. Let's see if you can survive this.

The demo version of System Malfunction is released, now you can download and play it. This demo version includes the entire first chapter.

System Malfunction Demo


Honestly, I don't know about the future of the mod. Before taking a break I was really motivated and interested in developing it. But now I lost all the motivation and think that I can't handle such a big project myself.

I spent to much time on it and realise that I'll need to spend even more. Even things I've already made need to be reworked in terms of gameplay. I started making this project almost a year ago and since then I learned lots of new things about level design. I think, the work I've done is obsolete and I believe that I could do it better.

However, I am satisfied with visuals of the mod, I spent a lot of time polishing and detailing, that's is why I've not abandoned it at all and can let you play it.

In short, I am not sure what to do about it. The only thing that can help this project survive is if someone joins my team and help me with level desing, but I don't want it to happen, because I think it just doesn't worth it.

Same thing about the soundtrack. If I was working on it today, I might make it a lot better. You can listen to it here.

Anyway, thanks to everybody who supported me. With your help, I'm not ashamed to show what I've made.

Good news guys! The first chapter of the mod is finished! I also moved my mod to Mapbase, so I have new features and it's easier to implement new ideas...

Really enjoyed the demo! You really nailed the aesthetic of crawling through the underbelly of the city and the inclusion of Magnum Civil Protection was a nice surprise! Shame I couldn't see those Rebel Zombies you showed off earlier!

Freezed for eternity, if I was going to continue its development, it would be a full rework, but I'd rather make something more interesting from scratch.

I really liked this demo. The custom crosshair and the new metro-cop type are some brilliant ideas ! The musics are really enjoyable.

I think that should be nice to change the color of the HUD, to replace charge items used by the HEV for something else. The arms model is looking a bit weird.

Maybe something similar to Blue shift could be done, where you use vests / helmets, perhaps you find CP vests / rebel vests (rebels use modified CP vests)

While the mapping is quite good in most parts, it feels to me that the demo loses its original intent of surviving without a hazard suit, as you can find charge items and even one or two charge station things.

So while it's not really special in that regard, it's still a fun mod to pass the time.

I like how limited your ammo is and you gotta manage them carefully.

but the Ai is stupid sometimes and some of the combine soldiers just stand and wait for you to shoot at them.

I just finished it and I really liked it!
Visuals are really polished and detailed as you said
Combat is really enjoyable, cover is vital and well placed, and the OST makes it feel kick-***
