A few words from Maxx:
It's been a while, but our 1.03 update featuring the Survival gamemode is finally here! Lucky for you, now you get to experience some big improvements, additions and changes to No More Room in Hell. We hope that you all enjoy 1.03 and everything it brings along, and we would love to hear what you have to say about it! We are building NMRiH incrementally, one little bit at a time and we want all of you to be a part of that process. Come join us on our forums and be heard! We are often directly involved with the community, and any bugs you might find, ideas you might have or even just stories of your experiences playing the game are all very much appreciated and encouraged.
Just remember that No More Room in Hell is a constant Work-In-Progress; anything and everything are subject to change. Many elements of the 1.03 patch for example are simplified concepts, prototypes of larger ideas that will grow and improve with your feedback. Many of the changes in 1.03 are based on the extensive feedback we received regarding earlier versions, so come talk to us!

Second we will be opening a public submission process for community made maps to be included into the main build, details and requirements will be announced with he mapping competition. Finally as always we are looking for mappers and modelers to join our team. If you are interested send us an applications to firstname.lastname@example.org or directly on our forums.
