Just a Tap on the Shoulder

New York Cab - Toyota Prius

A passenger in a taxi leaned over to ask  the driver a question and gently tapped him on the shoulder  to get his attention.

The driver screamed, lost  control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window.

For a few moments everything was silent in the  cab. Then, the still shaking driver said, ‘Are you OK? I’m so sorry, but you scared the daylights out of me.

The badly shaken passenger apologized to the  driver and said he didn’t realize that a mere tap on  the shoulder would startle the driver so badly.

The driver replied, ‘No, no, I’m the one who is sorry, it’s  entirely my fault. Today is my very first day driving a cab

I’ve been driving a hearse for the past  25  years.

NS2 Engine Test released!

Hello everyone!

Today is a big milestone for Unknown Worlds: we’ve just released the NS2 “Engine Test” to everyone that has pre-ordered the game. This is the first version of the game and game engine that will allow you to run around on a couple small maps and fire the rifle at animated dummy targets.

This will help us test our technology to make sure we get it running smoothly on a wide variety of computers. Grab it now! (http://www.naturalselection2.com/download)

The first time you run it, you’ll need to enter your NS2 game key (sent after ordering the game). If you’ve lost your game key you can retrieve it here (http://www.unknownworlds.com/ns2/retrieve).

This release will also allow you to load up any map you build and run around it. Finally, enterprising mod-makers will also be able to start hacking around with the game script code that comes with it, although this is not meant as an official mod release.

We’re looking forward to your feedback (http://tinyurl.com/ns2feedback) and we hope you enjoy this firstlook at the cool technology behind the game!

-The NS2 Team
