I wanted to squeeze a few more features into Darkness 1.0, but after fixing some troublesome bugs introduced in the last beta, I decided to release it tonight, as planned. Here's a summary of the features included with Darkness 1.0:

7 Human Classes

  • Engineer
  • Grunt
  • Shock Trooper
  • Heavy Trooper
  • Commando
  • Exterminator
  • Mech

7 Spider Classes

  • Breeder
  • Hatchling
  • Drone
  • Kamikazi
  • Stinger
  • Guardian
  • Stalker

7 Human Structures

  • Teleporter
  • Ammo Crate
  • Machine-Gun Turret
  • Missile Turret
  • Detector
  • Explosive Proximity Mine
  • Medipad

5 Spider Structures

  • Egg
  • Healer
  • Spiker
  • Obstacle
  • Gasser

Here are some things that I could not squeeze into Darkness 1.0, but that I plan on adding to a future release:

  • The Human Biotech class
  • The spider Wraith class
  • Breeder nudge
  • Spider glow
  • Better Engineer/Breeder climbing or flying
  • Shader-based glow overlay for Spider vision instead of the washed out texture overlay
  • More maps
  • Stalker landing/crush attack
  • Better Infested Corpses based on ragdoll position
  • HUD improvements (grenade count, smaller fonts)
  • Custom player/weapon/item models

If anyone's interested in running a (Windows) dedicated server, I've put instructions here. Also, if anyone's interested in helping out, I could use mappers, modelers, and an experienced Source Engine developer. Please contact me though Moddb/Steam/Facebook, or by e-mail at airuike at dnbrown dot net if you're interested.

Happy Hunting and Merry Christmas!

Don't know if that gameplay footage movie above is just WIP, because the camera should be placed better. Now it looks like it is placed inside the robot what makes it looks really odd.

other then that, looks nice.
