    There are aliens.

    Swarms of them.

    You have to kill them.

    Oh, and it's free, and it's made by Valve.

    This looks like a blast. Downloaded it and ran a bit of the practice level. It's got a very L4D feel to it, but you level up and kill lots of bugs.

    Played this back in the UT2004 days. Pretty damn fun.



    Gotta love Valve, the only company who is awesome enough to give out free games with no bullshit while everyone else is busy gouging people on DLC and map packs.

    I am downloading this right now. If anyone wants to play, steam ID is Sinanprime (or bariprime).

    This looks awesome, but knowing my crappy computer it'll probably have glitches.

    I dig it! Short but sweet. I'd definitely be interested in additional campaigns, though I wonder if it'll be a "the first one's free, pay for the rest now that you're into it" affair.

    Played through on normal and hard, haven't tried insane just yet.

    I played this last night with some people online. It was pretty fun, but I had some lag issues.

    Everytime I get into this game, even just for practice, it's really laggy.

    It is, however, pretty fun when it's not.
