A deserted island... a lost man... memories of a fatal crash... a book written by a dying explorer. Dear Esther is a ghost story told using first-person gaming technologies. Rather than traditional gameplay, the focus here is on exploration, uncovering the mystery of the island, of who you are and why you are here. Fragments of story are randomly triggered by moving around the environments, making every telling unique. Features a stunning, specially commissioned soundtrack. Forget the normal rules of play; if nothing seems real here, it's because it may just be all a delusion. What is the significance of the aerial - What happened on the motorway - is the island real or imagined - who is Esther and why has she chosen to summon you here? The answers are out there, on the lost beach and the tunnels under the island. Or then again, they may just not be, after all...

I'm very sure that this mod is a mod with potential, good potential, but the work put into this needs to be remastered and somehow better.

Sorry, I tried very very much to like that much, but that version, this is... un-enjoyable.
Maps are ugly and looks like 1 week work without any polishing. Narrator is very boring, he sound like he want to give up in second and go for a drink. No mention that maps are gliched, ehh no words.
In story driven mods, this is the worst mod I played ever in that category.

PS: The Stanley Parable is a GOTY masterpice comparing to this ****.

I tried it last week and had no idea what the **** was going on.
I understand not every game needs to be guns blazin', but this just. . . sucked.
You walk as slow as a dead snail covered in syrup, I had to bunnyhop through the whole thing. It's a bit buggy too, I came up to these citizens who just stand there not doing anything. And of course, i got stuck between some rocks.
The story was boring and dialogues were extremely quiet compared to other sounds. Sorry.
