No More Room in Hell

No More Room in Hell is a free to play Half-Life 2 Co-operative mod based on the popular Zombie Apocalypse scenario. It is a first person survival horror modification for the Source Engine, and is a standalone game.

Up to 8 unaffiliated human survivors can band together against the relentless zombie horde, with the ultimate goal of escaping this undead nightmare.

Teamwork and communication is essential to succeed, as weapons and supplies are scarce, and the undead won't stop until either you or they are dead. What is notable about No More Room in Hell is its dynamic objective maps that change with every playthrough, a realistic approach, a survival mode, and multiple opponents.

The mod is set during a time in which the world is on the verge of collapsing into chaos from a disease in which its origins are unknown. Many experts and organizations have their theories and ideas on how such a disease emerged and started to systematically destroy our very way of life, but one fact is clear to all. Whoever perishes from the disease gets up and kills, and the people they killed get up and kill.

No More Room in Hell was named 'Mod of the Year' for 2011 by PC Gamer magazine.

Features include:

  • Two gamemodes:
    • Objective mode - Survivors must complete a series of objectives that will allow them to be rescued
    • Survival - Wave-based survival run with supply drops and safe zones to maintain
  • Co-operative play with up to eight players
  • Voice and text communications limited by distance
  • Dynamic Objective Maps - The next playthrough may not be the same like the last
  • Survival Mode - Defend and maintain your shelter against the undead in the hopes of getting extracted to a safe area
  • A realistic approach: In short, no crosshairs and HUD. In addition, ammo and weapons are extremely scarce. With that in mind, aim down your sights and shoot for the head
  • Multitude of different opponents: Ranging from the iconic "walking zombie" to the more contemporary "runners", NMRiH will keep you on your toes with a mix of dangerous foes to face down. However, the most dangerous enemy may not always be the walking dead
  • Infection: One bite may be what it takes to bring you down. If infected, you must decide if you want to alert your team to rid you of your burden, or to keep quiet in the hopes of finding a cure
  • 34 weapons and counting, ranging from the diminutive .22 Target Pistol, to the almighty Chainsaw
  • No pay to win items
  • No ads
  • Powered by Source

Dwarfs!?

Dwarfs!? is a free arcade/strategy game set deep underground. Your goal is to explore a vast, randomly generated dungeon, while at the same time protecting your home town from harm.

It offers an addictive, fast paced arcade-like experience, with plenty of difficulties and game modes to play around in! In this game, your own Dwarfs double as your greatest asset and worst threat.

As the new overseer for your underground Dwarf base, your job is to manage the small colony and make it as rich as possible, before they meet their inevitable doom! To survive as long as possible, you’ll have to steer and guide your greedy little fellows to the richest points in the caves, while avoiding all the dangers – so they don’t end up destroying your Town Hall and its essential supply of beer.

Features include:

  • Fun for all ages and skill levels of gamers, with randomly-generated caves so the game is different every time
  • Addictive Arcade Mode: 4 difficulty levels ranging from casual to crazy hard-core, time limits from 5 minutes to endless, randomly-generated caves and all the gold and monsters you can handle
  • Base Defense Mode: Tower Defense gameplay, except you don’t have a tower. And your Dwarfs dig the routes. Then you defend against waves of monsters
  • Rush Mode - where the Dwarf spawning knows no bounds
  • Dark Mode - where a fog of war prevents you from seeing beyond your caves
  • Campaign Challenges: Tutorials where you can learn all about being a Dwarf Overseer in a few minutes and Challenges where you can put those Overseer abilities to the ultimate test
  • Leaderboards: Compare the size of your beard (and your scores) with your friends and the rest of the world
  • Sandbox Mode - do everything you ever dreamed of by creating your own caves
  • Challenge Mode - where you can put your overseer-abilities to the test
  • Endless Mode - where you can keep mining forever, and ever
  • Codex: Alongside the integrated help system is the Codex – the fount of all Dwarf knowledge! Contains everything you need to know, including video tutorials for the budding Overseer
  • Medals and Achievements: Lots and lots of shiny stuff to collect and show off to your friends
  • Fully Integrated with Steamworks
  • And Zombies. Not to mention goblins, skeletons, spiders, dark elves and more
