Alien Swarm Named ModDB Mod of the Month

ModDB has named Alien Swarm as their pick for Mod of the Month for March:

Alien Swarm is an original mod. There's no doubt about it, it takes a great shift in playing methods against the common modding genre of first person shooter. Especially when the platform it has been modded for is one itself. Most mod teams have shared this theme with UT2004, taking the easy road in development of the camera. This is what makes Alien Swarm interesting.

Alien Swarm takes place in the 'distant future'. The player assumes the role of a commander in the Interstellar Armed Forces, where they must take control of a squad of troops who are sent in to various locations to clear them of the swarm and regain control. With an arsenal of awesome weaponry to utilize against the swarm in what ever way you see fit, you can hunt down some bugs and promptly swish their arse to oblivion.

More details are available here.
