Countdown to Chaos was a mod that was announced by Majik Monkee on September 9, 2003. The storyline of the mod was more modern; the protagonist, John J. Schwartz - the last surviving soldier in a free world - a world which has been taken over by an alien entity whose purpose is to enslave the entire planet.
For some quite some time, no news were heard on the project, as Majik Monkee were balancing a lot of projects all at once. The next sign of life from the mod was heard on March 15, 2004, when it was stated that work would continue on the mod. Operation: Hundscheisse had taken up all other available time.
On May 4, 2004, the first screenshots were posted, which depict an American setting featuring George Washington portraits and evocative hallways featuring Wet Floor signs and computers.
Sometime over the summer of 2004, the project got canceled, with many of its graphics becoming available on the Image World.
