Really cool Half-Life Mod
 
With all the recent interest in Steam, I went browsing through the third-party games available in Steam.

Maybe its been there for a while, but I noticed "The Ship" listed and I dont recall ever seeing it before.

So i downloaded it and it is AWESOME! There is NO mod like this. I guarantee it. Its not bug free but this is an amazing idea. It seems sort of complex but its really simple and works AMAZINGLY well.

You have to play this mod.

The main idea:
You are on a cruise ship (different levels = different ships) and there are other players as well as dozens of NPCs (basically just scientists with different models that run around). Your objective is to kill your "quarry" (always another player, not an NPC) without being caught. Your quarry changes every time someone kills thiers. There are camera zones in which you will be arrested if you show your weapon (you just get sent to the brig for a little while and you lose some money and your weapons). To keep things interesting, players have to keep track of their basic needs. You have to drink, eat, sleep, piss, crap(no lie), get entertainment, socialize...
Also, something i almost forgot. The kicker to the "find your quarry" thing is that you know NO ONES name at the beginning of a round. You walk up to someone and "use" them and then you know eachothers names (which are aliases given to everyone at the start of the game, so the names change).

Theres just way too much to tell about this mod. Its so awesome :)

Go here are read the PDFs and other info on the game:

Its such a great mod, im really glad i played it today. It might get tiresome after a while but its loads of fun right now :D

Huh, sounds pretty interesting. I had an idea for a "secret assassin" kind of mod where there would be an area loaded with NPCs and one team would try to accomplish an objective while the other team would try to find out who they were and kill them, but this certainly sounds like an original idea that hasn't been done much before. Do you play on a specific server? I might download this one overnight and check it out tomorrow, I've been looking for something different to try (the reason I fell in love with Natural Selection is because it was so different and original in it's execution, I hope this offers a similarly new experience!)

The art style reminds of Beyond Good and Evil and Timesplitters. Really nice.
