In RainFall: Uplink, you will aid two of your fellow colleagues in gaining access into the Lambda Complex. The doors are sealed shut, and won't open until the CenCom satellite array has been aligned to communicate with the USNRC, as the military begin to lose their grip on the facility, and as the forces of Hell begin to pour through in greater, and greater numbers, you will have to fight your way through the chaos on the surface, until you reach the dome.

I've released the RainFall demo! Two versions are available for download. The Xash3D version, and the Steam version. I'd prefer you to use the Xash3D version to get the best experience, but if for some reason the Xash3D version doesn't work for you, the Steam version is there as well.

The demo features 3 playable levels, each of which contain many secrets, easter eggs, and a whole lotta things to shoot. I've also packaged the map source files, and a pretty large collection of prefabs as extras. This demo amounts to roughly half of a single chapter, A mere bite sized chunk of what I have planned for the final product. I hope you enjoy the demo, and I hope it was worth the wait! :)

Phenomenal work! Everything you showed was really good looking, so I can't wait to play it.

Also, nice of you to release those extras for the community to work with :)

I've played the Xash3D version, and I must say, that was an absolutely thrilling experience! Tons of action, great looking maps, and I'm just a sucker for the HL Alpha material, so that says how much I loved the monsters and all the character models. 10 outta 10 :D

Best HL experience I've had in a long while. I can't wait for the blast the complete RainFall will be!

BTW, what's the theme used in the very beginning?

Ah its a merge between two pieces of BMS soundtrack, Intro PT 3 and one of the musical ambience bits

Thanks for including both versions. Xash3D REALLY doesn't like my AMD card and crashes periodically, I had to tough it out playing Paranoia and Mistake, and both were super-crash happy, I doubt Rainfall would be any different :C

It's only 224mb, shouldn't take that long to download on a slow connection.
