I am The Evina. I do a little bit of everything from making maps for Cry of Fear and Source games to writing fiction novels to programming and web design and many other things. I like to review Source mods. A perfect 10 is reserved for mods that blow my mind. This is a list of mods I have contributed to: G String (voice acting [announcer]), Aperture Beginnings (voice acting [announcer]), Cry of Fear (creator of the custom campaign "The Hole").

Mod review

Just to let you know, this review does not consider difficulty. I saw how people remarked on how hard this was and I'm not all that good at fighting, despite this being the 75th Source mod I have finished (if my rough count is correct). I just switched on God mode and I still had a good time. Sorry but that's how I roll.

The mapping in this mod was excellent, even if the limitless hoards of enemies seemed a little unrealistic. It was Half-Life 2 style but with a unique twist that I really liked. I felt at home in it. It was also dark the whole way and looked very realistic like it was supposed to be at night. It's hard to explain how exactly. I'm sure the textures and shadows had something to do with it.

Also that classical music in the last map was a nice touch.

Assuming someone could survive your mod, it is a really enjoyable experience.


One Late Night

Game review

I never managed to finish this game. Some of the puzzles were really hard, the monster was not all too scary, and the game lagged a lot all in this one small map.

But the map was well designed and the story was kind of interesting. I had some fun with it for a while.


Elevator: Source

Mod review

I remember how fun to play this was. Beautiful mapping and lots of great humor were included.


Research and Development

Mod review

The first time I saw this mod I wasn't very interested but it turned out to be fantastic. The mapping was great, the puzzles were amazing, there were subtle bits of humor in there, and I was having tons of fun playing it. This is a unique mod experience that nobody should miss out on. You get a well deserved 10.



Mod review

This mod would certainly have been incredible if it was finished. For the tiny size of the prologue the quality was outstanding.


Trapped - Descent Into Darkness

Mod review

The atmosphere is great, and the puzzles are fun. That's was pretty fun.

But there are a lot of things that you could do to make this better. You see, there were so many bugs that I didn't really have the patience to not cheat.

Some places with silence could really use a soundscape.

The scales of textures caused lighting to be seen behind some walls.

One of the level transitions didn't work so I had to load the next map and give myself the crowbar and suit.

And as I was noclipping through something I think I saw a skybox box around your maps. Really? If you have leaks, just patch them up, use nodraw on faces that won't be seen, and it will help you a lot.


Spherical Nightmares

Mod review

This mod was okay. The mapping was decent, in terms of scaling, textures, and details at least. It had some good action although some parts felt unbalanced. There was no explanation of anything. There was little direction of where to go next because the lighting always focused on insignificant parts and left important details in the dark. There was no default key to equip the gravity gun. The vents were way overused. Or maybe I'm just desensitized to HL2 mods now...


Dear Esther

Game review - 1 disagrees

It is almost exactly like the old mod except with better graphics, but they were stunning graphics.

I got it with the HIB8. The game is maybe 2 hours long at max if you walk slowly.

I think the original price of $10 is way too high. This is more like a really fancy, empty movie. I wouldn't go to the theaters for that price if this was a movie.



Mod review - 1 agrees

Dangerous World is definitely my favorite mod that takes place in the HL2 world. It is stunning from the mapping, to the story, the music, the battles, and the effects. The ending was incredible and explained some things that that connected episode 1 to episode 2. 10/10 for this amazing piece of art.


HMS Defiance 2

Mod review

It was ok. It was not very long, the story was kind of generic, mapping was fine, the fighting was super easy. Still, it was fairly fun to play.
