The Specialists Source
If you remember The Specialists back from the HL1 days, which was probably my favorite mod. The programmer of the specialists is now working on basically the source version, except it will be called 'Double Action'.

Currently a kickstarter going here:

Throw in some money if you want an 'action' game in a modern game engine.

Also if anyone still knows where people from the old HL1 modding scene still reside these days, repost it there if you could. I've kind of lost touch with that scene, and only know of a few places to put this.

Some of it, maybe, depends on how much time I can get off from my day job to work on it. I may only have time to do the player models, which in that case, some of that money reserved for 'Artist' will go to someone else, or it will just fund Jorge for being able to program longer. Hes currently gone back to school and doesn't have a dayjob.

The money is really radically radically underpaid and is to cover our bills and food for a few months without headache in order to basically work on this like 12 hours a day 7 days a week for two months. We are all primarily doing this because no one has made a multiplayer deathmatch FPS as good as the specialists since the specialists (I think). Which is depressing to me, sometimes I want to play a good DM game.

I didn't want to initially mention my involvement cause I know some of you guys hate me, but if it's any consolation, I just fuck with you all for fun ( its genmay :rolleyes: ) and honestly only do so cause I think you all get entertainment value out of it. I am really an artist/actor/entertainer at my core, the ridiculous aspects of 'dio' is really me testing out a crafted personality I am developing primarily with the intention to be a character for a video game, most of my 'outlandish' personalities you see me take on are essentially me doing the same thing. Albeit I'm not always playing, but I do radically over exaggerate things. I have acted out many personalities on many different forums to see how people react to them in order to refine them. I am actually a well put together proffesional CG artist and game programmer IRL.

Here is a WIP of the current character I'm making for double action
