This is the first episode of my "episodic map pack" for Prey. The goal is to create a singleplayer, interactivity-driven first-person story that will hopefully appeal to Prey fans and generally to 3DRealms fans, as well as portray some locations that differ from, and have a higher interactivity level than, the usual space stations levels. The famous Portal Wrench mod (thank you Sars!) is included in this project, and sometimes, the only way to make progress will be to open some dynamic portals. Portals have a lot more potential than just being used as doorways, and I hope to unlock some of it. The title is "Altered Reality" because that's what the story is about. A malevolent entity is slowly altering Tommy's reality, and the disruptions will become more and more severe as the story progresses.
So you want to know where the second episode will be set...here you go.

Ladies and gentlemen, here's the first screenshot from episode 2.
First, I'm sorry if I disappoint you, but that does not mean the second episode is about to come out. Hey, after all, I do all of the mapping, scripting and texturing by myself, cut me some slack ;-)
It's meant, however, to give you a sneak peek of the general setting of episode 2. Before you say it has nothing to do with episode 1, think about its ending. Every episode will start right where the previous left off: if you get a glimpse of an environment at the end of an episode, you will be able to explore it thoroughly in the next. Generally, every episode will be set in a different environment: I want to give to each of them an unmistakable look.
I will surely release more screenshots before releasing episode 2, but not any time soon. And now, if you excuse me, I have some mapping to do. :-D
