The short version:

Remember Gang Garrison, the TF2 demake that burst out of the Bootleg Demake's competition? Well, we pretty much haven't stopped working on the game since its initial release, and its come a very long way. Where it was once an amusing but unfinished prototype, Gang Garrison is now a complete and polished game with tons of new features. Whether you've played some of our older builds or you're totally new to the game, I highly recommend you stop by our site and download the latest version, it completely blows all previous incarnations out of the water.

The long version:

Originally conceived for the 2008 TIGSource.com 'Bootleg Demake' competition, Gang Garrison 2.0 is a free multiplayer 'demake' of Valve's Team Fortress 2 by mrfredman, MedO, and Synnah. With all 9 classes, many different TF2-inspired environments, and fast-paced, team-based, multiplayer gameplay represented, GG2.0 is the premier TF2 tribute/parody/alternative.

Gang Garrison 2 presents the player with 9 unique classes to use in frenetic, cooperative multiplayer action in a stylish and unique 8-bit style. Battle with your friends or others you encounter online through a whole range of vibrant maps; TF2 maps reimagined in 2D as well as a multitude of maps in all sorts of different looks and settings, all of which have been dreamed up and constructed by members of our community. We've made a huge effort to provide simple, bugfree custom map support, so that anyone with a paint application can put together a map and test it themselves with our Garrison Builder utility. We also gladly encourage Gang Garrison modifications; many successful mods have been incorporated into the game as new features.

During the first development cycle and the judging of the Bootleg Demake contest, interest in the game began to grow, and as the game's fanbase grew, we became flooded with complaints that we weren't adding new features fast enough and things began to get a bit out of hand. We woke up one morning to find that someone had decompiled the game and was modifying it and releasing new versions without our knowledge and permission. We concluded that the best course of action was to release the game as Open Source so that those interested could step forward without consequence and aid us in development. Since then we've moved to our own site, acquired some incredibly talented and devoted new developers who have worked hard over the past few months to turn our original bootleg demake prototype into the polished, balanced, and bugfree game that it is today.

Changes from Gang Garrison 1.0 to 2.0 include:

- 9 Fully Functional, Unique, and Balanced Classes with Improved Sprites
- Unique Taunts
- New Music
- New Menus
- New HUD
- New Options
- New Explosions and Effects
- Tons of New Maps
- Custom Map Support and a Level Editing Utility
- Kill Notifications
- In-game Communication
- Team Autobalancer
- Spectator Mode


While this game has come a long way, it is still a work in progress. Many impressive new features are currently being planned and developed, like new gametypes and alternate weapons. Because this game continues to grow only because of the devotion and hard work of our community, we invite you to come and participate in the future of this game. We are always looking for talented people to join the forum, contribute art, content, ideas, and modifications, and maybe even help us behind the scenes on new official versions. We hope you'll stop by and have a look at our game; it is the imagination and spirit of our players that makes it so fun.

It can block bullets, but mostly its just there to be entertaining.

I'm sorry, we haven't encountered that bug before. It could just be due to lag, which is always a nuisance in a game like this, try hosting a server and see how things run. Or just quit the program and try again, we've tried to make things as smooth as possible, but keep in mind its still built in GM, which often has a mind of its own and causes things to not work for inexplicable reasons and then magically work again five minutes later.

Let's start by reading the file called "README." You know, like "THIS IS IMPORTANT."

All the info you need there.

But to change class, try hitting your "M" key.

Great game.

The bubbler is actually quite useful, but you need 2 or 3 of them.

Its been down all day.  Sad

You can come to our forum and find the ip addresses of servers so you can manually connect if you are desperate for a game, but we're working hard and the lobby server should be back up and running tomorrow.
