Paradox Announces Teleglitch: Die More Edition
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paradox Interactive has announced a partnership with indie developer T3P to develop an extended version of survival-horror action game Teleglitch entitled Teleglitch: Die More Edition. Teleglitch, a roguelike top-down shooter that traps players in a military research station in the middle of a catastrophe, features procedurally generated levels, craftable and combinable weapons, and the constant risk of permanent death. Teleglitch: Die More Edition is scheduled to launch this summer.

In a dystopic future ruled by sinister mega-corporations, an inhospitable planet at the edge of space houses a research station for Military Technology Incorporated, specializing in ‘necrotic tissue reactivation and nonhuman combatants.’ A massive disaster has wiped out the entire staff, save for one surviving scientist, now surrounded by robots, clones, and the reanimated corpses of his colleagues. The entire planet has been quarantined, nobody is coming to help, and the only escape option is at the other end of the facility. Well… survival is not for everyone.
The Die More Edition also includes new branching bonus levels, such as the Robotic Hardware Assembly, the Damage Statistics Department, and Unstable Product Reconfiguration. Players will have access to new items and weapons in order to survive, plus new story content above and beyond those included in the original indie hit – along with smarter, deadlier enemy AI to prevent players from ever seeing it.

Teleglitch: Die More Edition features:

  • 10 procedurally generated levels, different every time you play
  • Over 20 types of deadly, relentless enemies
  • Dozens of weapons and items, which can be crafted and combined into improvised tools and deadly devices
  • A sinister plot to be unraveled within the twisting corridors of the Militech facility
  • The constant threat of swift, permanent death to keep players on edge

    A livestream of Teleglitch: Die More Edition will occur on June 27th at 8 p.m. CEST / 7 p.m. BST / 11 a.m. PDT at, where the game’s developers and producer will be showing off the new content for as long as they manage to live.

Teleglitch: Die More Edition will be available sometime this summer for $12.99. Existing Teleglitch customers will also get upgraded to the "Die More Edition" for free.

Valve Introduces Mac OS X Support For Source SDK
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Last week Valve announced the release of an update to its Source SDK. Among other things the update introduces support for Mac OS X and Linux users hoping to create mods for Valve's game titles.

We have released an update to the Source SDK, bringing support for Mac OS X and Linux to mod developers and exposing the ability for virtual reality support in your mod. The biggest change with this update is that we are using github to host the source code. You will find the code here. This Source SDK 2013 release also includes a new license that can be found here. This new license allows mod authors to share their changes to the SDK more easily.

The other change with the Source SDK is that now Hammer and the other mod tools ship with their respective games instead of as part of the SDK Launcher. The launcher itself is being phased out, so it will disappear from your Tools list. You can find information about how to run the tools from the games here.

The source for this new SDK release includes the latest code for all the included games, and has many new features:
• The games now build and run clients on Windows, OSX, and Linux. Dedicated servers are supported on Windows and Linux.
• Steam Pipe (the new Steam content delivery system) is supported by the sample mods. Existing mods can change their gameinfo.txt to match the new format and gain Steam Pipe support.
• Support for Virtual Reality via the Oculus Rift has been added to the SDK. Running a compatible mod with -vr on the command line will run the mod in stereo and enable head tracking on the Rift.

You can find instructions on getting started with the new Source SDK 2013 on the Valve Developer Community wiki.
