This project is currently in WIP of the City Assault 2 mod, entitled City Decedere.
This is a Horror game, assisting my 3rd year Dissertation at University “a theoretical study into the horror genre and psychological fear, evaluated by an implementation of such fear evoking stimuli in a game engine.”

The first level released on the 10th February was the first level in the story – called Happening. This has more of a Western take on horror.
Level 1 can be downloaded from Moddb Download Now!

The second level is called Darkness; it will continue on the story and will have more of a Japanese take on horror. This promises to be a much scarier level than the first :P
Level 2 can be donwnloaded from Moddb Download Now!

The mod overall doesn’t as of yet have a proper story, as for the purpose of the uni project, it is more a demonstration level. After I have finished uni, I will continue to create more levels for the mod, and implement a proper storyline.

I have some good news and some bad news - the bad news is that because of my uni deadline, I only managed to complete half the intended level of Darkness, in the one month. The rest of the level will be completed over summer. The good news is that it is much scarier than the first level

This level continues the story of the first level, which left off John and Amy trapped inside a bomb shelter, trying to find their way back to the city. As part of my university studies, I have included in the zip folder a link to an Online Questionnaire. The questionnaire will help me in my studies and also help me make the map better, so please fill it in as it is only short. The level is much scarier, having stuck more to psychological stimuli, researching from experiments and other games, as well as the helpful feedback from those that played the first level, which is why the questionnaire feedback is important to me, to make the game scarier, so please find 5 mins after playing the game to fill out the questionnaire :D


Map Screenshots:
like before, i dont want to give too much away about the content of the mod, so here are a few teaser screenshots with some hidden surprises.

Mod doesn't work. Is it because I have a no-cd launcher?

I just played both of the levels, all I have to say is NICE job man! I know its a bit unfinished, but you did some good hotfixes, and definitly improved on your sound on the second level! Make more epic cutscenes! and change up the enemy models, make them get harder and harder the more you play into the level. Other than that I hope more come out!
