I'm a 3D model and texture artist. I also do a little bit of everything else game wise, and have a degree in Computer Engineering with a focus on C++. I've been mostly involved in the Garry's Mod/Source Engine mod community since 2005, but I've been doing small projects for various games since 2000. Besides having a full time IT job, I do freelance work - with the hopes of becoming a full-time environment artist in the future.
A functionally solid mod with a more then fair share of flaws. I haven't seen primarily brush based environments like those featured here in years, and as such this mod feels incredibly aged. Very little of the custom content was made for this mod specifically, and the scavenging gives the visuals a very disjointed and inconsistent feel.
Inconsistency is also a good term for the gameplay. This game clearly wants to be everything from stealth to tactical shooter to suspense to horror to survival, and doesn't quite master any of it.
The mapper(s) deserve a medal for functionality (this mod wouldn't be anything without hammer magic), the writers should feel embarrassed for the 'wake up sheeple' speech, the voice actors get a pass, and the content creation crew should get their act together. This is doubly so if they plan on delivering this to greenlight, the amount of uncredited content in this game is acceptable for a free, unsupported mod, but that just isn't going to fly on steam, and even more so if they want payment for it.
Despite the flaws, I'll still credit if for delivering a coherent story over a long campaign, even if it was both visually ugly and artificially inflated with fetch quests and repetitive sections. If this mod wants to move forward with greenlight, there are substantial 'content borrowning' issues that are going to kill it before it gets a chance.
7/10 (Including the 4 bonus points for length, ambition, ability to deliver a working release, and overall effort.)
Well constructed horror, with a great homage to The Thing. The ending was a bit of a letdown though. Otherwise a great piece of modwork.
