At first i was like "Ah, again some art house mod, going to be pretentious and boring as always". Boy I was wrong!
The most exciting adventure game since "The Longest Journey". And I don't like adventures at all!
The art style is wisely done and atmospheric. You can clearly say - Water is belong to water, pardon the pun. Then she's outside every color is desaturated - dry land is an alien world to her. Even more - she's flying like a dolphin under water and she's completely helpless on a dry land. Brilliant achievement in immersion! I even got a 'horror feeling' with growing tension at one part because I was outside water too long.
The puzzles is not overcomplicated and most important thing - they are interesting and sometimes hilarious to solve. There's nothing you can't handle. At the same time they utilizes Water's unique abilities at max. I won't spoil anything to you but couple of puzzles made me LMAO like a madman.
And the specific sense of humor of course. The reason for Water's quest alone is enough to make you grin like a Joker. Not to mention further jokes.
So far the mod is polished as it was a retail game. At least I was not experienced any technical problems. The only thing I want to see or more exactly to hear is a full voice over. It will add even more charm into this piece of gamedesign art. I'm not counting the intro, it was... uh... not very inspiring.
So download it and play it, it will take only 2 hours at max, but you will enjoy every second of it!

Thanks a lot for creating this!
I'm not sure I've found every possible endings. (Got 4 so far)
But I'm sure I'm died from laughter doing this!
Narration is incredible. Both male and female (you should play to know).
And the 'right' ending feels sooo sarcastic. :D
Play it guys, it beats Dear Esther by a mile IMO.

This is how you make your maps.
Great attention to little details, pacing, firefights, difficulty - everything is great.
Also, play another mod from Magnar: Whoopservatory - another little brilliant mod.

A MUST play for any HL2 owner.

I think this game was overlooked and very underrated.
It's dark, atmospheric, very fun in gameplay and music is just epic awesomeness. This is not your regular heroic Jedi fragfest.

This month is pretty awesome for me. Underhell was first and now we have this high quality work.
It may be boring at times due to big spaces and pretty dark too but has the most important thing many of modders seems to forgot - great firefights in very well planned areas. What else you could ask for? Well, may be for actual SECURING of White forest in the end.
Make Ep. 2! It's worth it.

One of (if not most) professional mods for HL2! Play it now!
Soundscape, graphics and lighting, intriguing storyline - everything is great!
And at some parts I nearly **** myself. Can't wait to horror chapters.
Some minor problems:
- voice acting, moderate at best
- day/night feature feels out of place in the beginning because I actually started urgent rescue mission at day 3 (lol wut?). May be it should be intro and cut right into the action?
- barely visible enemies at some parts
- hard to identify who's swat and who's terrorist in mall battle. They all just black figures at dark environment.
- squadmates crossing your line of fire and die
- you see and can shoot at much larger distances than AI. Probably problem from HL2 itself.
- MP5 with laser pointer enabled is universal at every distance. Just point and click.
- M4A1 crosshair in scope is barely visible. Gun also feels underpowered IMO.
- AI trying to shoot you through obstacles when it just can step aside and shoot you directly
- AI has very poor aim even at steady position
Your work is oozes quality, keep it up please!
[waits for chapter one]
