This has been done in mods before.
Yes and one of them is called Natural Selection (2002). Besides they never claimed it was original.
It was just the way its was being peddled as something major and new by the op.

If it's even running on its own engine, then it's not a Half-Life mod anymore, isn't it?
No, it's not. I guess that's the reason they can make us pay for it.

I haven't played many RTSs since... *has flashbacks about WC3*... [/fetal position]
OT: I've never heard of this before, but if it's good I might get it.

Heh... I fall into probably that one percent of people who was in desperate need of this news. Long ago I had discovered the world of mods and probably played at least thirty different half life mods in my freshman year of college. A few stuck with me, but it wasn't long before I was overwhelmed with work, and soon after the necessity of a new computer became apparent as I had no chance of running any new games anymore (and could barely run Day of Defeat at the time as it was). So I dump the old one for something brand new... but a few years later I could not remember the name of that one mod, you know, the one where one side plays the aliens and the other one is humans, and they're fighting for resources, no, not Starcraft, it's a mod for Half-Life... And then, years later, when I've all but forgotten about it, this news comes along. Thank you!

(I edited this thing three times to make it shorter. Brevity be damned!)

for those of you crying that they don't know anything about game to get interested, etc.... just click on the youtube video or wait till the end and you'll find a mess of videos of the original mod.

I never heard of mod but after watching the videos it has me interested in it.

I'm pretty sure that teaser (pre-rendered, if you didn't realise) is pretty old. It was uploaded to youtube this year, but I'm sure I saw it like two years ago, if not earlier. I am looking forward to NS2, however, as the original NS was one of the most polished HL1 mods around.

Is this a Hlaf life 2 Mod or what?... someone might have already asked...
Also any one heard of the black mesa mod?, i believe there's a thread talking about it already.

Trust me, if you ever liked Alien vs Predator of any of those sorts of games, NS is an absolutely awesome mod. So much fun, so much strategy needed to win. Easily the best mod to come out of the first Half-life game.
This.. this will be awesome. I can not wait. I might go download the old version for old times sake.

You aren't crazy, it was so much frantic, crazy fun, though I died everytime one of those massive Rhinoceros like things fought me.

Squad Advance

The future of this indy game looks damn fine.
THAT'S THEIR ALPHA?! I'm officially interested in this mod. Btw, trailer appears to be fairly old.

If you have Half-Life I would recommend you download the original (its free), the community is likely extremely small at this point but if you can get a game going it will give you a feel of what to expect.
