This is a novel style for multiplayer, similar to The Ship Halflife mod. Each person is an assassin and you get one person designated as a target. Someone else is assigned to kill you. So you have to move through town without exposing yourself too much to protect yourself and not alert your target to your presence. You get a radar for the target you’re hunting, but don’t know where your pursuer is. It fosters a playing style that rewards slower methodical play. This looks like a great break from the typical adrenaline-fueled mania present in most multiplayer games.

“C.S. Lewis once said that we need democracy not because people are essentially good, but because they often are not. Democratic accountability is essential to preventing the market from becoming a beast of corporate totalitarianism – just as it is essential for the government. And God’s priorities should determine ours, not the priorities of the Chamber of Commerce.”
“When the system is designed to protect the privileges of the already strong and make the weak even more defenseless and vulnerable, something is wrong with the system.”
