Free? Dont think that would ever happen. you dont want them to go bankruptcy do you?

And i think its gonna cost more then 20€. thats just too cheap.

You can buy it from retail stores in September or October. There should be more news soon (i.e. the game should start appearing for preordering next month or in August). The price is going to be around 40 euros, just like a regular PC game.

the game

i can tell why Im gonna buy it.

1. The story sounds very interesting

2. The Graphic looks just exelent (you should look at the screenshots and download the teaser trailer)

3. The Music (download the orchestral main theme)

4. The gameplay

5. That you can upgrade and customize weapons.

... and a few more reasons

yeah but...

yeah but IS there REALLY a story!? of course there seems to be that they come to the base and kill aliens but that what i am looking in that game is that i want to know that is it just gonna be u come there u kill them and u leave or is there gonna be some things that will continue story!? (Like a little movie scenes) Or is it just like Max Payne whitout bullet time!? Can playrs choose what they do!? Or they just run always the old same route like in HL2 and
Max Payne 2!? Or is the reason why to go on some room only that you can get card key from there to next door and here we go again!? AND is there more multiplayer options than just Deathmatch, Teamdeathmatch, Capture the flag and Co Op!?

well, what i have read there is gonna be cut scenes witch voice acting. it sounds like they realy are working hard on a story for the game. By the look of the GUI theres gonna be keycards.

There aint gonna be any multiplayer, exept that it might be co-op.

I quote Joel "Multiplayer as in deathmatch etc, is not going to be in the game."

" All I can say right now is that we have made some steps forward towards co-op. But it's still not guaranteed, because we have tons of stuff to do, and we want to make the singleplayer experience great before we add co-op fully. We know it's a feature you guys would love, so we will do our best to make it fit the schedules..."

Co Op queston...

Is the Co Op play sytem like 2 on same keyboard and screen or is it on 1-6 players online or LAN!?

IF it happens, co-op will be 2 players on the same kb/screen.

And yes, we're focusing on the story heavily. In addition to cutscenes, I think our locations and characters/dialogue are a big part of the overall story feel. We're actually starting to finalize dialogue right now, and it's looking pretty good. 8)

i think that u should

I think that u should put the Co oP becouse it seems to be that so many here on forums would buy it only on that reason!

I wonder about your hesitation concerning a coop mode. All the classics like Ikari Warriors, Alien Syndrome, Dogs of War or Mercs had that coop mode and it was the coop mode that made them legends. I never played these games in singleplayer.

If you want a huge success, you have to go coop and you need to promote it heavily as a coop game.

Well you know there are many good free games on the web like GunZ Online, MU Online, Rose Online, of which all are MMORPG. No matter the cost i'm getting this game.

it seems to be a nice game. its an isometric view-action shooter - what do u expect? k, i m gonna buy it, cause its cute and i ll have fun with it. remembers on old amiga times.:-) if u want lan or something, u should choose an egoshooter for it, its better for such things. think a price near 25,- is ok.

@ macro

i see you never played Alien Swarm (ut2004 mod) ist better in Lan as all egoshooter together. And its the same game Style like Shadowgrounds.
