Bookmarked, cheers.

Thanks!

Am I missing something, or can this not yet be 'purchased' ?

I would have thought Steam would have allowed it to be pre-downloaded =/

I downloaded it a few days ago but I've just written an article about it now and thought I'd stick it on here.. There doesn't seem to be a download link any more

Article here

Looks like it will be available from 19 July.

Looks ace! It's great of Valve to give this away free. I would have thought it would have made more sense to give it away with Portal 2 or something rather than just giving it out free to everyone, but I'm not complaining!

Just type "steam://install/" + the game ID into a browser or something with Steam installed.

I dont get it ?? please help, how do I download this ? Many thanks

i see no links to download or anyway to get it.

It will be released tomorrow. On steam there is a countdown stating release in approximately 1 day 6 hours. Using my incredible maths knowledge, that works out to some time between 8pm and 9pm tomorrow night. I guess it will be available for download then!

Awful that you can't pre-download it. Come tonight at 8pm GMT everyone will be downloading it.

Looking forward to getting hold of this, fantastic find!

Awww come on, 2 hours left

mmmm 8pm and its sayin 2 hours untill it unlocks ??

Requiring a hard reset?
Do you per-chance have a Geforce GTX 260? many people have reported problems.

Hi no I dont think so? Ive no idea what that means tho ?

I think Im gona give up on this its really doin my head in now :o(

Amazing a free (and very good) game has only reached ~200 degrees.

Awesomly fun game, certainly doesn't feel free!

I like it. Plus you can play in first person as well, just type this in the developer console:

firstperson (enter)
asw_hide_marine 1 (enter)
asw_controls 0 (enter)

Thanks - didnt know about the firstperson view.

Also, for those that don't know...
open the developer console ( ` key) and type in:
sv_cheats 1 (enter)
asw_tilegen (enter)

this opens up the tile generator program which allows you to make your own basic levels -there's an example pack supplied. (more advanced users can then import these into valve's hammer editor for further tweaking)
