We all know Natural-Selection. Now, meet Intelligent Design.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

hmmmm, another source mod to wait a few years for :p  Looks like it could be interesting though.  Am I to assume Zunni ditched NS for this?  That's funny on a couple levels for me (and doesn't look promising for the future of NS if even HE jumped ship!)

Jumped and jumped, seemed more like pushed to me... But lets not discuss that here, mod might be interesting, though pretty NSy.

Seems like a joke mod directed at NS, really. WE SHALL SEE IF ZUNNI MAKES IT.

I know the lead coder, and most of the team. I assure you they are serious.

Same here; I can recognize all the names of the moderators on their forum, as fairly well-known people in the community.

Interesting! :)

I dont have any evidence of this, but my assumption when i saw this site last week was that Zunni and crew mustve gotten sick of UW being basically out of the loop on their own products, so they decided to just go make ns themselves... but as NS and stuff is UW copyright, they called it ID and changed the skulk to mr leapie etc etc.

Yea but so is Natural Selection. The weak don't get eliminated, (which is, in essence, what the original idea stood for) - focus cloaker nubs are alive as evar :)


@ID: should be interesting to see a game that has all the bad parts of NS taken out.

Natural Selection flows more smoothly out of the mouth than "intelligent design." Change Intelligent Design to Creative Design and it works a little better, but can still be improved. Yeah, phonetics, I'm hooked on phonics. Intelligent sounds too smart, whoever thought up Intelligent for smartness was a bright fellow indeed.

Also, Bob sighted!

Well, "Quake" is quite a weird name too.  Anyway, I don't hold anything against it apart from what I already associate with the name: The quasi-scientific claims of ID (not the game), which gives me the shivers.

The problem with the name is that it's too much of a poke at NS, all while the developers claim to have very little affliation with it.

"Hey guys lets all go play Intelligent Design!"

"what are you up to?" "Playing Intelligent Design of course!"

"Whos setting up a server for Intelligent Design/ ID ?"

yes im poking fun at the ridiculous name. They need to come up with something more creepy. Intelligent Design sounds like a computer type course at my college rather then a ominous game with space marines vs Nano organic creatures.... they better change the creature names too to somrthing more simple

I can't help but notice one of the "main" NS devs jumping ship and starting a mod of his own thus reflecting the actual state of NS which UWE isn't telling us.
To the stars!

Can you really call Zunni a dev, last I recall, he was more of a spokesperson
