    Post Sven Co-op in Mod of the Year awards

    Thanks to all the people who apparently voted for us in ModDB's Mod of the Year 2009 awards -- even though we'd made no mention of it this year! We were ineligible to place in the top ten due to winning in a previous year, but thanks to you, ModDB gave us this nice write-up under Honorable Mentions (don't know if being second in the list means anything?)
    Featured in every single MOTY since we first started, Sven Coop is one of the oldest mods on the ModDB database yet still being developed and still popular as ever. Its no surprise that its an honorable mention again.
    We were also one of only two Half-Life mods listed in the Top 100 Mods & Indie Games category. Here's a little Golden Spanner Retrospective to mark the occasion:


    In 2002 we were featured in the Most Improved and Best Overall Mod categories, and placed 2nd in the list of "Mods You Should Not Leave Home Without".

    In 2003 we again featured in the Most Improved, Best Overall, and Mods You Should Not Leave Home Without categories.

    In 2004 we won 1st place in the Best Action Mod category, and 2nd place in the Best Mod category! (Just under what is now a commercial game). Sven Co-op for HL2 was also voted the #1 most anticipated mod (unfortunately, real-life issues have since left the project stalled indefinitely).

    In 2005 we ranked 5th in the Best Mod category, beating out most HL2 mods.

    From 2006 onwards, previous winners were ineligible to win again -- but we did get an Honorable Mention, as we did this year. -- Thanks again for your support!

    Update: Just remembered that in 2008 we were also nominated in the Editor's Choice: Best Multiplayer Mod category, and named the #2 Best Non-commercial Mod in the 10 Years of Half-Life feature.


    As usual, development of the next release is dragging on for longer than we'd like. We do have some interesting and highly unexpected features in the works, though, so it's not all bad news. A deadline has also been set for final contest map bugfixes, so hopefully those will be released sometime soon. Stay tuned.

    Wow, has SC really had an honourable mention every year since 2006? How come I've never noticed that :o

    Edit: The game Skacky is working on was mentioned: http://www.moddb.com/events/2009-mod...ing-indie-2009
    The E.Y.E. one. From what I've gathered it's some kind of rpg/coop/fps mix. Looks pretty sweet.

    I missed it too in 2006/7, but apparently we featured in some capacity. I noticed it for 2008, but don't think I got around to mentioning it on the news (until now).

    Would get kind of boring if the same mods won every year.

    I just happened to look at MODDB front page oddly enough and read the post!

    I must say almost anything mentioned regarding Sven Co-op was delivered to me from one fan or another never thought Sven would have missed anything.. Had I known you missed it I would have slammed a door or something to get someones attention in regards!

    Also I would say since Sven Co-op is one of the longest mods still being worked on I would say many of us fans both old and new probably always have the love for it somewhere within our hearts for many days to come...

    People are still amazed that this mod exists as far as playing Half Life one as a coop... This mod has led a lot of people into the co-op extravaganza world bleeding for more...

    Well Sven whenever you get to releasing an update I'll be there to try it out sir!
