Interstellar Marines v14 Released, More Single-player Goodness

Interstellar Marines is really starting to shape up with good performance, and some more single-player content.

In the latest update they have updated the AI for "The NeuroGen Incident" the single-player mission that has you fighting off killer robots, and it's surprisingly jumpy. If they manage to keep this up for more missions it will be a bit like playing the FPS 'F.E.A.R' again, and that's great.

We tested some of the newer Survival mode earlier at GOL by doing some co-op (myself and Samsai) and it was quite fun, but the robots deal massive amounts of damage very quickly, so you need to be a good shot. I seriously can't wait for more types of enemies to appear to freak us out some more.
We did manage to finish one of the survival runs after a good few utterly failed attempts, and I may have accidentally killed Samsai a few times.

I also tested some of the Escape game mode and that was equally as satisfying with more killer robots! The new modes really add a lot of re-playability to the game, and I can't wait to see what they have cooking for v15.

I am starting to have really high hopes for this one, as it could be one of the best FPS games Linux has in future.

Wait, since when were these missions available?
I was waiting for something like this for quite a while. Even though, I kind of regretted buying this game as I have a rather exaggerated fear of sharks and buying this was like accepting my nightmares, for as soon as I clicked the purchase button I stopped for a few seconds wondering what I just did. Well, I guess it's time to update it!

Does the game have sharks? With lasers on their heads I assume? :)

It's a really good game. I could see the potential way back when I bought it right when they released for Linux. The team is fairly small but they are very dedicated to the game. They also are often slow to release because when they do release something you know it's going to be very good and not chalked full of bugs. They also are very good at listening to the community. When they first released for Linux their was a nasty bug with high polling ( gaming ) mice. A lot of posts were made about it helping to diagnose the issue ( as many of us Linux users will do if their are problems ). Long story short someone found it to be a Unity bug and IM was fixed with a patch right away to solve the issue. Good stuff, I really love how the game is shaping up!

No, but they have legs and can walk on land and that's terrible! Kind of the reason I bought the game, as the campaign had those abominations. Although, I did play a little multiplayer and it was nice.

I saw a bit of Samsai live streaming the single player other week. He's so jumpy, it was rather entertaining. You have to please get him to live stream Outlast when it gets released. :D

I've been interested in this one. The cost of entry for an unfinished game is a bit too high for me though. Is there a rough guesstimate for when this will be done?
