    Damn good reward is like it. I'm not bothered with killing floor, at all.
    But this is good news for anyone else who has mapping knowledge and is owning the game.

    If there existed a non-steam version, I might have bothered :(

    Ignorance at it's best. :)

    It was either the top-selling game or second place after L4D for 3 weeks on Steam. Still in the top 10 and it didn't let UT3 go past when UT3 had the weekend deal.

    This is the first week since it was available for pre-order that KF hasn't been the best selling game not on weekend sale on Steam for the past month. I'd say it's quite an achievement for a non-Valve game, even for a big budget AAA title.

    yay another zombie game with a mediocre score.

    I give them a hats off though for the contest. That's the right way to get people involved.

    After all the work that was done for the KF mod community (for free), even when its online community towards the end had shrunk to just a few servers, Alex and his team deserved this big break, so i hope its success prospers.

    ModDB: I'm sure many mod teams would like to know, how did Killing Floor strike a deal for retail?

    Alex Quick: I was hanging out on RO's (Red Orchestra) IRC last October asking questions like, “how the hell do I port KF to RO guise”. Around this time Red Orchestra was the first non-valve game to host steam mods and I thought it might be a way to extend KF's life. At the time, I wasn’t feeling too optimistic about the future of the mod — the fan base was pretty small. I ran into the mighty “Rammjaeger” who (and this confused me because he was willing to talk at length to a complete stranger about random mod porting) was the president of Tripwire. Funny thing is, I was pretty dick-ish about the whole thing and I basically just dumped KF on him and let him do the entire port job for me. Thankfully, he didn’t just tell me to piss off and do it myself. I would have probably told me that. Long story short, in the process of porting he played it and showed it around the office. There was a general consensus that it was a fun mod and something they wanted to do more than port. The rest is history. Although I still wince when I think about my lazy-ass-ness. Good old 20/20 hindsight.
