"This project, deemed the "Firefight Project" for the time being, is a gameplay experiment with the goal of discovering the specific elements that produce fun and exciting firefights in multiplayer games. It is a study into how cover, weapon potency, weapon effects, and various other gameplay mechanics play into creating interesting tactical situations. Situations that involve more struggle oriented interactions between opposing players. The Firefight Project is the pre-production stage of what will hopefully turn into a full multiplayer mod for HL2 that, naturally, will incorporate the results of the project."
Currently this team is in search of a coder to help further the project.
