Below The Ice

Why are you going to Antarctica? Who sent you? What are you looking for? What will you find?

There are dark secrets hidden deep beneath the ice, and a terrible price must be paid to know the truth.

Below the Ice is a story-driven mystery and puzzle mod with minor horror elements. There is no killing except in one optional ending.

The full version will require Source SDK Base 2013 SP that comes free with any Source game (and nothing else!)

I still can’t believe this day has come.

After 20 months of work, procrastination, terrible OCD, bad mistakes, and overall stupidity, this mod is finally complete. I’m done. This is the full release.

Below the Ice 1.0


  • A mysterious story to solve with several hidden secrets to find.
  • 3 endings, including a somewhat difficult violent ending.
  • Display your objective using TAB.
  • Ability to read pages of notes that you find.

I would like to say thanks to everyone who has followed this mod and commented during its development, it certainly helped me to get it done during those tough parts.

Is this mod perfect? Far from it. No doubt there will be people who don't like it. But it's the best I could do and I'm still impressed with what I did.

I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed making it. :D

I am unable to go through first red laser door. I pressed both buttons on right and left but nothing happened. They didn't turn green.

Jump to go faster. (I personally thought it was easy, as well as the testers, but apparently none of the players think so. I'm sorry.)

I liked this mod, actually! However, it feels like it could use a lot of sprucing up on the visuals and some of the areas and puzzles could use some rework so that it's not as easy to miss large areas of the maps.

The text is broken, AKA instead of showing the intro, it'll say "#BTI_Intro1".
How do I fix this?

The resource file might not be loaded. Make sure the mod folder is named "belowice" exactly.
