To show you how eager we are to let everyone check out Dystopia, we've released the demo files early! In this day and age where it's common for professional developers to slip on release dates, we proud of being amature game developers who can not only create a game as cool as Dystopia, but get it out ahead of schedule.

The client installer is an 88meg self extracting package, you can grab it from any of these mirrors:

dystopia_demo_client.exe - from modDB
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from AusGamers
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from GameArena
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from HalfLife 2 Files / FileFront
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from Multiplay (UK)
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from FileShack
dystopia_demo_client.exe -Filecloud
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from FilePlanet
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from halflife2.nu
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from FileSpace.ru (Russian)
dystopia_demo_client.exe - from pfichiers.net (French)

We are in desperate need of more servers. As we hoped and expected, Dystopia is being downloaded by a horde of gamers looking for a fresh and exciting new game to play. All we need now is enough servers to accommodate them all. If you've got a server running a HL2MP, CSS or other SourceMod that isn't seeing a lot of action; please download the server package and run up a server:

dystopia_demo_server.tar.gz - from HalfLife 2 Files / FileFront
dystopia_demo_server.tar.gz - from FileShack

From the little I played, I didn't quite understand the gameplay. I will have a second, longer, game when there are servers with a <300 ping.
Good work releasing it early!

Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fun. It took me 30 minutes before i started to understand the goals, and then 20 minutes later I was giving commands (which were of course ignored) to my team.

To give you an idea of the popularity:

Game: dystopia
Players: 1,085

Game: TeamFortress Classic
Players:942

Game: Natural Selection
Players: 809

Goooo dystopia!!!

Well, the little bit I got to play it -- then the server shut down, and the other ones were full -- it was a lot of fun :)

Can't wait to see more from you guys. It's safe to say that this release was a smashing success.

yeah fun stuff the katana is pretty cool you can block n stuff. Also yeah when you know what to do the mod is pretty fun you get a sense of team work since everyone is working together whether they realize it or not.

They really really really need to do something about those global chat commands, limit them more from flooding or remove them alltogether, that gets really irritating after a while :)

Otherwise, fun game!

This is amazing. I agree with the others: a bit tough starting out, but when you get the hang of it - it's not that difficult :D. Dys now, and DoD:S on the 26th - I love September :)

From what i'm hearing, people should read a guide or faq or something before they play. Sounds great though, I can't wait to get my gaming computer up and running... must..play...dystopia... <_<

dassbaba, people should probably read this: Dystopia-game.com before they play. Helps explain some of the key aspect of Dystopia.

The problem is that if you ever have any manual for anything, 90% of people are not gonna read it. And if you're playing with people who don't know what they're doing, the mod gets way less fun. But, sometimes you get a situation where both teams know what they're doing, and the mod gets really friggin fun.

I would have to say this was well put together GREAT JOB. I personally love it. I think you should make it so when you are done installing it should tell folks to read the manual right away. Also once you learn what the hell is going on it is awsome

the one thing i love is you can't rambo. You ahve to play as a team with the right amount of heavies/med/lights and attack as a group.

once again great ****.

Ive been looking forward to the demo release since I found out about dystopia.

It seems you guys did a very professional job and its payed off, the game is absolutely great.
It did take a while to understand it, but thats what you get for going into a new game and not even looking at the player guide! =)

Hopefully we will see some more competitive matches once most players work out what they are doing.

Incredibly fun and gives you a variety of things to do for your team. Brilliant first map, and I look forward to more official maps.
