Release Date and Release Party Announced
Friday the Thirteenth. To some, this means stuffing a horseshoe down your pants and hoping to hell that you can avoid any dark felines on your way to work. Others may chuckle at the simple coincidence that hey, Friday The Thirteenth hit October this year.

However, for those working on Ragnarok Arena, it means something a little more special.

For a little over a year now, Exploding Dog Entertainment has been working diligently on Ragnarok Arena, a multiplayer sidescrolling mod for Half Life. This Friday, the first beta of Ragnarok Arena will be released to the public.

To celebrate the event, EDE has set up a release party event on the Joe.to (http://joe.to)) Ventrilo server. From 6:00 PM Central Standard Time (GMT -6) all the way up until 8:00 PM, those interested in the mod can join and chat with the developers, ask questions, or inform them of their low IQ rating for modding Half Life.

The developers will also be hanging out in the Ragnarok Arena IRC Chatroom, hosted on the Gamesurge IRC Server. You can connect using the following URL: irc://irc.gamesurge.net/hlss (This requires an IRC client to be installed on your PC)

For those of you who missed it, the trailer is still available for download off the main site, though it is somewhat dated now. (We've been making a lot of progress in the past few weeks.)

All in all, it's been a very fun and eventful ride, and all of us at EDE hope to see you there on Friday.


For those not familar with this mod, here's a bit of info.:

Back in 2005, the idea for a sidescrolling deathmatch mod was born on the Half Life Improvement Forums. Named Ragnarok Arena, it featured weapons and locations from many Half Life mods, squeezing them all into one massive multiplayer experience.

Enjoy a trip back to a time when bleeding edge graphics didn't matter, and where the idea of a third dimension was only dreamed of. Ragnarok Arena allows you to jump miles, gib your friends into little pieces with rockets and actually have a fighting chance without the use of that crazy mouse object.

In fact, Ragnarok Arena is being tested with many gaming pads with great results. Enjoy the ability to frag your friends from across the globe with a gaming controller, like the good old days (Though replacing "Friends from across the globe" to "That fat guy sitting on your couch").
