The Hunted is a single-player fps game based off of the Darkplaces engine' It is completely standalone meaning you do not need any prior files to run it and it comes in a series called "Chronicles"' These "Chronicles" are used to having a continually flowing story and a difference from weaponry and other things found in-game'

Each "Chronicle" tells the story of a lone survivor escaping the city that has been overcome by the infected' The infecteds' symptoms at the time of the survivor's adventure are not clear but as the chronicles are released the story unfolds to make it quite clear as to why, where, when, and how this survivor came to be in a horror show such as this'

Chronicle - 1: [Q/A]

Q' Where is my gun at the start?
A' You start unarmed, and essentially defenseless'

Q 'I picked up a weapon, but I don't know if I received it'
A' key [1] is knife and key [2] is the pistol, which are the included possible items to receive in Chronicle - 1

Q' I can't kill the zombies!
A' Try hitting them then backing up' Repeat until dead, or, re-dead

Q' Where do I go ?!
A' You're the explorer, search every area, chances are these rooms have a purpose'' Right?

Q' That was too short! Where is the rest?
A' in creation, hold your horses'

The Hunted Chronicle - 2 "Feign" is in developement and has been coming along smoothly so far. I don't want to jump on the hype machine too much but I'd like whatever form of audience I have to have a small glimpse into the differences between Chronicle 1 -> Chronicle 2.

  • Chronicle 2 "Feign" will be much more atmospheric (ambience, more interaction)
  • Will feature more puzzles that require more thought behind them while still keeping the player entertained.
  • Much more firepower, while still keeping on the thinking and dodging aspect of the gameplay. The knife will not be your only hope !
  • Better models and backwards compatible (Chronicle - 2 zombies work in Chronicle - 1)

Awesome game, but I'm kinda stuck on what to do. I got to the second floor, killed all the zombies, but can't figure out what to do, any hints?

Seems like a cool game/mod Too bad I did not notice it erlyer, the files needed to play dont seem to be available for download anymore from neither ModDB or filefront. Both this one and the 2end one.

This is the error thing from trying to use the ModDB download link.
