Initiate THESEUS

//INITIATING INTERNAL MEMO 1.TH.289A
//FORWARDING TO ALL IPR PERSONNEL...
 
 

ATTENTION ALL PERSONNEL IN CELL 1-5, PROJECT BLACK SNOW IS NO LONGER A VIABLE ASSET TO THE INSTITUTE.

We have now designated all related work in research to be a CLASS 0 - the data will be transferred to the ZEUS PRISM for processing. Please meet with your cell leader(s) to update your clearance and get reassignments to other projects.

There is a possibility the project may resume in the future but as of now any pending related work will remain CLASS 0 dormant.

Those who are in CELL 4-5 are to be reassigned to the THESEUS and ORPHEUS projects effective immediately.

We thank you for all your hard work and apologize for the sudden termination of development for project BLACK SNOW, rest assured that this is done after extensive consultation with management. We believe that project THESEUS and ORPHEUS will bring us to the cusp of an unprecedented advancement for mankind.

IN TIMES OF INNOVATION ONE MUST LOOK FORWARD IN ORDER TO APPRECIATE THE FULL EFFECT OF THE PAST - TOWARDS HORIZONS WITH PROMISES OF SOMETHING BEYOND.

I have to say, I really enjoyed this mod. The mapping was superb- I mean, really just incredible, such great atmosphere! The puzzles were fun, often challenging but not frustratingly so, save for maybe the x-rays. Really loved all the exploration and the amount of detail. The gameplay was extremely intense, I've never feared the dark nearly as much as I did in Black Snow, and I was on my toes the whole time! There wasn't a moment of this mod I didn't enjoy.

***Minor spoilers***

However, I did find the conclusion a bit disappointing. Even with it tying into a future project, I really wish we could've gotten more information about what exactly is going on, and a less abrupt conclusion. I didn't think it was the legitimate end of the mod until the credits actually scrolled down the screen, and frankly I found the whole adventure rather anticlimactic.

Nonetheless, I still thing it's a stunning feat of storytelling, gameplay, atmosphere, mapping, and just modding in general. Excellent work, looking forward to your future productions!

***spoiler reply***

Yes, I do realize it's rather abrupt, unfortunately I was pressed for time with our other current project so I had to bring it to a conclusion, very sorry :(. Perhaps you will find better closure in what is coming next...

And the winner of most abrupt ending goes to...

Nicely done, had a bit of a problem with the x-ray puzzle and ended up just deleting the door, but enjoyed figuring everything else out.

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…

Lowest Rated (7 agree) 5/10

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…
