My first introduction to computer games came over 15 years ago with the addition of an Amstrad to our home. As the machines have improved, so have the games, and I have been following their development as I too was growing up. From the simple task of moving boxes about the screen all the way through to the almost true-to-life visuals we experience today, I have watched as games have improved in ways I couldn’t have imagined as a child. This close link with the progression of gaming led me to become ever more intrigued by the mechanics behind the finished product. During my adolescence I spent my time learning the creative processes that the digital world can offer, including: web design, programming and 3D modelling. Above all else, however, my true passion has remained games design and I have undertaken years of education and training at school, college and university level, in order to equip myself with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed.

Thanks for the input guys. I have had a problem with the grass for a while. Sometime I'll get around to increasing the size so it isn't quite so ugly lol.

Thanks for your feedback. We've had a few comments on the voice acting and may be thinking about making improvements to this in the future.

Thanks for all your comments and feedback.

After watching a video or two of people playing through, I'd just like to let you know that there will be an update to part 1 soon that will address a few issues, especially with the first map. I am now aware that the wrong version of that map was included in the release which is why there are a few issues with player clips and un-sewn displacements, so my bad for that lol.

Thanks again,
Andy

We did do some research before creating the mod and the cracked roads and such were something we did observe. However, we had a fairly tight deadline to work on and we thought we'd try to keep it fairly simple atleast for our university project.

It's loosely based on the events of Centralia, Pennsylvania.

Centralia is more of an interactive story than a game. We weren't going for all-guns-blazing action. That was never the idea. The idea is that you help Jim on his journey to discover the secrets of Centralia.

Fair comments.

Being our first attempt at a mod, I think it was a good effort. Obviously there are things to work on though.
