Decay is the story of a human life. From the second a human being is born, they are in a perpetual state of Decay. This game explores that concept, taking you through a surreal version of our own world. Decay was made by a group of 5 students at Champlain College as an out of class project on their own time. It was an expirement in a lot of ways for the designer, writer, and artists. There are a few rough edges to be ironed out before the games actual release, but it will be along shortly for anyone to play. Note: Half-Life 2: Episode 2 is required to play this mod.

The first playable version of Decay is now up for download! I very much consider this to be a work in progress, and I appreciate all criticism on the environments, themes, puzzles, etc. There are still a lot of visual tweaks and optimizations to be made to the map. I plan on working useful suggestions into the mod in the future and patching them in.

I'll also be updating the screenshots in the image gallery to reflect the visual changes in the game.

Enjoy!

kinda short for 300 mb,but a good mod with meaning nonetheless, also it reminded me of the map "de_rats" from when i used to play cs and i loved that map.

Great, wonderfully great mod. Proves that you don't need horror or graphics to make something great.

Perfect mod. Perfect maps... everything in this game is perfect

But...

Don't we get old and die? Because the game finish in a work place and not in a cemitery (or something like that)
