Merry Dysmas Everyone

It's Dystopias 10th Christmas. We may not be a large community, but it is your continued support that makes dystopia a fun game year after year. While you are taking advantage of Steam Sales, remember that Dystopia is always free and we always have games occuring, so once you've completed your new game and need something else to play, we're here to frag you in the name of Datatrust.

About This Game

Dystopia is a cyberpunk game on the Source engine that places the player into tense combat situations in a high-tech world spanned by computer networks. Playing as either Punk mercenaries, or Corporate security forces, the player will fight through the physical world to gain access, via jack-in terminals, to cyberspace.

Cyberspace is a three dimensional representation of the world's network. Inside cyberspace players will launch programs to hack into systems linked to the physical world while fighting off enemy hackers and defending critical systems. Gameplay progresses through inter-linked physical and cyberspace objectives, some are completed in either the physical world or cyberspace, others only by a well timed combination of the two.

The player will be immersed in action packed battles, whether the player is a heavily augmented combat mercenary armed to the teeth with the latest in firepower, or a twitch reflex cyberdecker racing to infiltrate a cyberspace node; they'll be immersed in an action packed battle. Only through skillful use of the high tech arsenal we're making available and intelligent team play will players truly jack-in and kick ass.

Puny Human is a collection of dedicated and talented gamers who are creating this action packed multiplayer game. Dystopia draws on the themes and concepts of the cyberpunk genre and implements ideas born out of years of gaming experience. With a competitive focused gameplay system, we hope to produce the next step in online multiplayer gaming.

It's like skyrim with LAZERZ!

I kid, its a great game. Think unreal tournament meets Neuromancer.
The bunnyhop is very strong in this game, and it is a legit way to outmatch people.
You can go into cyberspace, and hack into terminals by clicking buttons.
You can have augments, and don't worry, they are VERY BALANCED. Half the things cancel each other out.
The maps are unique and fun, and all you need is half life 2.

Now, the only real gripe is the player base. But before you scroll away, I have a solution, the PYRAMID SCHEME.
It works like this.
1. Download HL2 and this mod.
2. Play it and have fun
3. Wait for sale, buy friend copy of HL2 and tell them to play it with you OR tell them to play the mod with you if they have HL2.
4. Have friend repeat.

Within 1-2 years, we will have a thriving playerbase, all thanks to the strategies of Bernie Madoff.

Pretty fun multiplayer with quite a unique concept. The teams have to fight both in the real world and in cyberspace at the same time. There are different classes, plenty of different weapons and abilities, and overall graphics, sound, maps, etc. are pretty good considering it's free.

It's a shame this does not have more players, it's free after all. I'm afraid it doesn't appear to be very sexy on the store page, at least that's why I was too lazy to try it out for a long time.

This game is NOT dead though. The community is small, but regular, and most of the veterans are quite welcoming and helpful. Although you will still meet people who prefer to troll new players rather than help them. Either way, dear kiddies, stop playing CS:GO and jack into Dystopia!

One of my best experience in a Half-Life 2 mod. The art, the fluidity, the gameplay, the weapons, the musics, the ambiance... everything came from passion. And this is exactly what the video game "industry" lacks.
Get yourself a HL2 copy (if not already done) and try Dystopia. Jack-in.

Dystopia is the best source mod ever made.
It is a high-skill caped game which requires both teamplay and tactical awareness.
The 16 different primary weapons provide a fresh experience which sets the game ahead from other tactical shooters with standard gunplay , e.g. Counter-Strike.

The official maps are very unique and can provide thousand of hours of fun.
There are also a lot of custom map which bring variety and new concepts. Since neither the developers nor the custom map makers did suffer from any boundaries set by the marketing department to their creativity, the results are simply awesome.

This game is insanely fun and challenging on public servers, but also works as great in 5 vs 5 clan matches.

Looks really cool, but there is rarely anyone playing. I really wish there was an offline mode with bots but oh well.
Add me if you want to play some time :)
