In less than 7 days you can download FRONTIERS (for FREE !)

Hey everyone!

After half a year of mapping, remodeling, bug fixing, betatesting, feedback-collecting, adding new maps and researching content, we will finally release FRONTIERS!

The game includes 4+1 Maps that portray one of the typical Routes of an african migrant: Sahara, Ceuta, Spanish Coast, and finally the Container Port of Rotterdam.

For those who already played our beta version, a lot has happened since:
On one side, gameplay and score system have vastly been improved. Countless new models based on the material we collected during our research have been added, documentary interview sounds and videos of refugees we met, and much more.

The other good news is that - thanks to Valve - FRONTIERS can be now downloaded entirely for FREE. All you need now is a Steam account, install Steam and then the Source SDK, and finally install FRONTIERS. (>Detailed Instructions here<) In the next weeks and months, we will regulary meet and play online, so you if you want to be part of that, also join our Frontiers Steam group (after you registered), and you will be notified whenever there is an event. If you want to leave feedback, thats lovely -> do it here.

Thanks to everybody who supported and helped us during this long march!

We will see you at the border.

How to install Frontiers?

We know, FRONTIERS isnt out yet, but we already post this now, so we can focus on the premiere party later ;)


In case you're experiencing troubles installing FRONTIERS, here's a lil' help from your friends.

System Requirements:

  • PC (Sorry, Mac-Users!)
  • CPU:                      Pentium 4 or Athlon Pro
  • Speed:                   1.5 GHz min, 2GHz recommended.
  • Video Card:           DirectX 9.0 ready, GeForce 6000 or higher recommended
  • Sound Card
  • Free Disk Space:  Minimal: 5GB; Recommended: 15 GB
  • Internet Connection


If you have a Steam Account already, proceed to point 2. If you have one AND Half Life 2 (or Deathmatch installed, congrats, you may skip to point 5.)
 
1. Download Steam , install it and register an account.

2. Start Steam and log in.

3. In the menu, Click on Library->Tools

4. Search for "Source SDK Base 2006", double-click and install by klicking Next > (...) The Source engine, necessary for playing Frontiers, will be now downloaded and installed.
Time for a coffee.

5. Download Frontiers  >> HERE <<

6. Wait until The Source SDK is completely installed.

7a) Now, If you downloaded the Frontiers ZIP file, extract the files to your Steam Sourcemod Directory. If you don't know where steam is installed, Search in windows for "steam.exe" If, for instance, that file is found here:C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe then you have to extract the  /Frontiers folder to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\SourceMods\

7b) If you downloaded the Installer, install your files to that directory.
    Klick this link to start FRONTIERS. Didn't work? Dont worry:
    Restart Steam, in the menu click on Games->View Games Library.
    Frontiers should show up now! Now that was easy! Go on and play. :)

September 29th

On September 29th of 2005, the world watched a dramatic spectacle unfolding as many hundreds of would-be immigrants from all over Africa charged barbed wire fences surrounding the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla in a desperate attempt to enter Europe. Dozens of immigrants were shot dead, others were rounded up, put in trucks, and shipped off and left in the desert with no food, water, or shelter. These events highlighted the growing need for the European Union to actively meet and preserve human rights all across its borders. 6 Years later, EU goverments still focus on raising walls, investing their financial and military resources in militarizing the borders, causing more fatal casualties than ever before.











On September 29th of 2011, we will publish our final release of FRONTIERS - it is dedicated to the all those heros out there, immigrants around the world, who risked and continue to risk their lifes for a better future.
