Sent on a mysterious mission to a frigid wasteland, questions begin to arise. What are you looking for? What will you find? What price will you have to pay to know the truth?

Report article RSS Feed Public Beta Released!

I decided to release the first part of the mod for those who want to try it out and help me with fixing its remaining issues. This is not the full release of the mod, but it is open for anyone to try.

Well, it's been a long time. Four and a half months, actually. I had to deal with a lack of motivation, bugs, time wasted on fixing tiny things, and other crap.

But now I'm pleased to finally announce the release of a public beta! This download will contain the work-in-progress first 3/4 of gameplay. So much has changed since the little private beta I did, and the ending is probably the worst off. It needs to be almost entirely redone, that's why it's not included. You'll get a cliffhanger instead.

If you choose to wait for the full release, that's fine. It'll probably be much better. If you are brave enough to try the beta then I would love to have feedback. Send a PM or write something here on the ModDB page.

Nice work; I enjoyed it. Detailing in the office areas, especially the staircases, could do with some work, but the "test chambers" look great. I enjoyed all of the puzzles except the "balance the numbers" one, and the story has potential. Looking forward to the rest of it!

overall good with exception to some of the worst level design and environment design ever.

Fun mod, and interesting puzzles.
Overal the level design needs some work though.
Good for a first part, and looking forward to the full mod itself now.
