    Sounds reasonably cool, and at the price of free, it instantly hops onto my list of games to get. Gonna be the 5th free game I've got off Steam.

    EDIT: Just watched the trailer. Left 4 Smash TV much?

    I like how it says "Pre-purchase Alien Swarm on Steam" , then when you go to the link, it says
    "Available free of charge,"

    Anyways, can't wait for the game to come out, more free games for me [​IMG]

    I remember playing this when I had UT2K4. I also remember dying a lot. It's quite a surprise that it's free and that they were hired by Valve, though they do that quite a lot don't they? Can't wait to play it, as I like to Co-Op with the family and friends. The tile based map maker also sounds nice.

    Are we able to preload it?

    Edit: Looking at the trailer, it looks a lot like smash tv, so I will be downloading this.

    I'll give it a try but I'll probably not do to good at it.
    I see that this comes with the Source SDK. Does that mean people can use this to play Source mods?

    Nope, someone at Valve said that it's a seperate SDK, so it's not compatible with mods if they're not made with that SDK.

    I just started using Steam and, yeah, this game looks awesome! :0
    BTW, are there any other (decent) games free of charge on Steam? I saw something like Coil and Space Wars but they are nothing more than bad Flash Games ported to Steam. :\

    Peggle Extreme and Trackmania specifically are pretty awesome.
