First off, allow us to apologize for our prolonged absence - we've had much to contend with and it's been a very exciting (and sometimes turbulent) year for us.

However, we are happy to announce the launch of a devblog for our new game, BEACON, a sci-fi action roguelike coming to PC. We know this might not be your cup of tea as it is very different from Black Snow, but give us a chance to impress you. And if it happens to be right down your alley, then by all means follow us along the development of the game and chime in to give your feedback as we create the product together!

Follow the development of the game alongside us here at our devblog. If you are curious about who "we" are, check out our website.

Hi guys, it's been a really long time since I've visited moddb and I apologize if there are any issues whatsoever with the current state of Black Snow. The truth of the matter is subsequent Steam updates since release have rendered the game really unstable and requiring a lot of maintenance to keep working. The game was made with NO CODING at all and relied on some hacks and scripting tricks to get going; with the new Steam Pipe structure a lot of folders are reorganized and these scripts are no longer functioning as they should.

Unfortunately, as stated before, the team is current consumed by our current project which requires every man available and are unable to troubleshoot Black Snow. Please understand that this is not a decision that was easily made. We will come back to patch Black Snow once more time becomes available or even port it into a better engine, but currently we have no plans of revisiting the mod. Once again, I understand this is not an ideal situation and do sincerely apologize.

Should anyone be interested in following our current project, feel free to visit the website. We will also be demoing the game at this year's EGX Rezzed in London, so if anyone are around and want to drop by, we'll be there every day!

How to fix Black Snow crashing at the intro? Start game with params "-console -dxlevel 81", next open a console and write "mat_dxlevel 85". Enjoy! And change GameInfo: search "Fixes for HL2:EP2 mods broken by the SteamPipe update"

Black Snow NAILS atmosphere and makes you feel vulnerable and alone. As a part of a rescue team dispatched to a research complex in the middle of the tundra. You end up separated, chased and all but you remain. With dark hallways and the ominous presence of something unknown lurking in the shadows and no way to defend yourself, the true sense of making you feel afraid is done right. You must avoid a darkness out to kill you by using light, and solve many puzzles that will test your ability to think…

The mod started off well enough, you got tension and mystery. You had to explore well and it gave you a indication of what you can pick up. The annoyance starts with this arbitrary light switching that makes zero sense why it changes like that, and if your left in the dark you end up being chased around and stuck inside a room with that thing right outside, forcing you to reload without a chance. It moves really fast so you end up dying without a fighting chance as soon as you make a mistake. Then…
