My names Jamie, but I prefer to be called SpooBoy. I play games, CSS and L4D2 mainly. I work for Opposing Forces 2 as their storyboard consultant, if you got any questions about the mod don't be shy to ask. Anyways if your looking at my profile I've either pissed you off or got your attention by pissing someone else off, please, comment.

If that explosive barrel went off in the wrong place what other option would the player have to advance? A re-load or suicide isn't really a good idea in terms of game-play. A puzzle should always be passable, even if a player makes an error on their first attempt. This isn't true to all games, but it's portals style. If you die, you die. But a lot of it is trial and error. This is an example of one shot or you're stuck.

In addition, it's not exactly clear what to do in that particular segment. For instance, I (while playing) may pick up the barrel before walking into the next room, and walk it near the fire, wondering what would happen. The second it caught on fire I would drop it and run.

My suggestion (and I'm no dev), would be to do what Portal 2 did, and have the explosive type balls keep shooting out of a broken tube. You have a big corridor right there already. All you have to do is throw in a switch and when the player sees the explosives drop, in addition to the wood, they will figure out they have to fling a explosive at the wooden barricade. It's really up to you, but this is my suggestion.

Alternatively, I would eliminate that small puzzle all together. It kind of throws off the flow of the set-piece you have going. It's in a rather small environment in contrast to the large area before and after, and is kind of a 'rest stop' if you will. I feel like for in terms of pacing it would be better to simply just let the player admire the scenery and continue up the lift to the next timer puzzle.

Anyways, looks fantastic. One of, if not the best, Portal 2 mod I've seen. Sorry if I offended you for this post, but I think it needs to be addressed. Best of luck on the release of your mod. I will be playing!

Good point. Personally, I think the DEV here is showing us that he knows what he's doing and wanted to show off a little. Nothing against the DEV because I think this is ******* sweet.

Damn that's sad man. Back I appreciate being able to assist you with story/news and all that back in the day. If anyone picks this up I'm a 20yo unemployed ******* who needs something to do ;)

EDIT: I hope the story is going somewhat in the same direction, but hey it's your mod.

Great. Now I don't know if a fan of the mod made it, or if it's an actually concept for a fan puzzle. Looks really cool, though.

It looks better, but both look so good. I mean, yeah... the left one is improved, but I could see the right one being used in a different environment. I wouldn't even know the difference. Good luck with everything guys, I haven't commented in a while!

Funny because this is like a flashback to my IET experience where my peers would wear those patches on their left ACU sleeve to mark their position in the platoon.

So... wait. Is this a mod still or just a comic book? No disrespect because your work is very professional, but if this is a comic book then I'm no longer following. Again if that's the case I'm sorry... I have the up most respect for anyone with the talent your team possesses and it's your choice to do as you please. It's just not for me.

It would be really great for future updates if the ALT and normal reality shots released simultaneously. I tend to enjoy the updates a bit more when I can see exactly what you do to the normal reality to make it even scarier. Regardless, though, this is astonishing. Nice job!

There are no comments on this yet it's rated so high in Steam Greenlight? Anyways looks great, I would suggest linking the Greenlight page to have this URL so you can get more recognition for your hard work.

You tend to agree, yet you'd price it even higher? I get your point, just wondering about your clarification on price.

I for one can understand the original pricing, but anything higher would be silly.

Just like someone asked in the Youtube comments: does the armor protect you in any way? I'm very curious about this feature myself. And if so, then how could the player utilize this feature in real time?
