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 on Jun 20th, 2012
Extremely short and not all that scary. Seriously there were only a couple of monters in the whole thing. However, it was still fairly well designed for the GoldSRC engine.

They were perfect in trying to achieve the perfect mood. With the lighting, art, music, camera effects, and everything else, it was amazing. They could make an area very beautiful or very disturbing and transition between those two very easily.
Very interesting and well written, better than most stories I see in a game. Sure not if everything was perfectly explained, but in horror games that is often the case and sometimes preferred.
The chase scenes made me feel stressed and kind of scared, but overall I thought the monsters were more like obstacles rather than fearful opponents. Their appearance was not very terrifying, and when they killed you then you would just be taken past that point or choose to go back to a previous save. If there was more of a consequence for being killed, even just a minor one, it would be much scarier. But regardless of whether it was scary, there is no doubt that the game is very dark and sometimes disturbing. I'm not complaining.
In conclusion, it was a very enjoyable experience for me.
Mod Review on May 30th, 2012
A great mod. I liked the new zombie trap ideas.
I was surprised at how hard it was even on easy. I think there may have been over a thousand zombies in the game, not even kidding, and it was longer in length than I thought. Also I don't think the sewer chapter fitted the theme very well.
Also because it wasn't updated when Steam broke the mods, I had to noclip through some areas that required Michael and I sort of just guessed what they were supposed to be saying.
Still, it was enjoyable.

Very well designed with regards to the textures and mapping. Not very long and there isn't much of a story.
Mod Review on Apr 12th, 2012
Underhell is a very unique experience with many genres put in one game. (Yes, it deserves to be called a game.) The suspense, confusion, adrenaline, and amazement that I felt cannot be duplicated by any other gaming experience. I was immersed in this incredible world from start to finish, which is surprisingly long. When you think the epicness will end you are always wrong. My expectations were shattered every step along the way, and I was taught how little I knew. I was even surprised by the emotion that it contained. The storyline was so deep and beautiful that I was able to develop a good relationship with the characters. The voice acting and choreography was excellent and I could really get a sense of their personality. They felt real. When Episode 1 ended I was exhausted but perhaps more excited for the next part than anything else before. I can't say anything else about it. Only by playing it can you know what it's like.
As of September 2013 this is the best mod I have ever played. I would recommend every gamer to try it.

This mod is pretty amazing, even if I don't fully understand it. The mapping is excellent. It's not too long or repetetive. Every detail seems to keep me bound to this surreal and ever-changing world. I love it.

- Somewhat interesting storyline, although very confusing.
- Great voice acting and dialogue.
What I don't like:
- Tons of bugs and crashing
- Repetetive level design
- Hard jumps and puzzles
- Constnat ear rape
- Screen flashing
- Constant annoying battles with those things

The mod is laggy, buggy, and the puzzles seemed so hard that I had to noclip, god, and notarget throughout the game. This may just be the first version so I might not be in a position to judge it that well.
But the level design was beautiful. So 10/10 for the graphics and design.

An excellent mod and very well designed in nearly every way.
Mod Review on Mar 17th, 2012
I had to play this game a second time to give it a proper review and understand it a little more.
Voice acting = 10, really good.
Plot = 8, a little artsy and overly detailed for the modern gamer though.
Level design = 8, decent considering it's mostly HL2 content.
Gameplay = 2, very slow walking with flashlight.
Still, this mod feels like it would have been better as a short story/film. As a mod/game it feels out of place.
