Yes, Nuclear Dawn is still alive and still being updated. I'm actually shocked, but impressed at this. The new version will make the Linux and Mac versions a bit better too.

From the announcement:
QuoteGreatly improved Assault class's thermal vision interaction with Weapon Suppression gizmo on Assault Rifle.
Fixed structure damage being miscalculated when being structure is attacked by another structure or at times with grenades/missles/REDs.
Fixed a crash that could occur when spawning after a round is over
Fixed bots being counted in total players required for a surrender or mutiny vote to pass.
Fixed a few rare client and server crashes.
Decreased memory usage in some areas on both client and server.
Switched MOTD panel to use Steam's HTML rendering rather than directly embedding Chromium, effectively updating it to a much newer and more secure version of the same. (This also fixes some crashes that would occur on Mac and Linux).
Added numerous security-related fixes from other variants of the Source engine.


It still has people regularly playing, so I might have to boot it up and get some games going soon. Anyone interested?

Nuclear Dawn is a mix of top down strategy and FPS action built with Valve's Source Engine.

I might join in, have this game for a long time and haven't played it yet!

Ye, didn't play it in ages. Would probably join in.

The cool part was, everywhere I went when I said "I'm a noob and have no clue what I'm doing", they started to help me. Not the typical kiddie game where you only get "f** off you f** noob" or similar. Everyone was friendly, helpful and got me to feel a bit less lost :p.

I really liked this game when I played it a little around one year ago. It was really sad that they stopped developing but it seems they're back on track

I'll play. Buying right now.

We were looking at playing this and talking about it on a future episode of the podcast seems like a good time too apparently.
