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 Oct 29th, 2013
Well that was kind of interesting. The story was very well written even though it was vague, probably intentionally.
On the other hand the design was dreadful. Walls were not aligned, walking was far too slow, everything was inexcusably blocky (and that's coming from someone who does blocky mapping himself). Textures were generic and provided a delightful view of wall after blank wall. Hardly any music or sounds were used. The monsters were scary only for a moment and then became annoying and easy to avoid becuase their simple behavior could be easily predicted. The new features added to this mod were not enough to need binaries, let alone all the source code for them. That's thousands of unused files. Why is this a GB in size? It's maybe 15 minutes long at most. Overall it gave an unprofessional impression and it needs quite a bit of work to feel realistic at all.
But I can't expect perfection from everyone. Not every mod is a flawless masterpiece because anyone is allowed to make them. I was like this once, and I'm still learning. So I'll let you know it's a nice effort. I hope you learned something from making it.

I'll start by saying that my rating is not based on any religious prejudice. The music was nice, the design although simple, was interesting (for a little while at least). I sadly had an extremely hard time understanding any of it. I wish the player would be told ahead of time that they would need bible and math knowledge. Also, I think some more work and time could have been put into it so it wouldn't just be a bunch of white hallways with decals.
