Good mod. Not banal level design and nice light effects.

I love this mod. Although it is a bit too easy and it ends kind of suddenly. Other than that, I'll be waiting for a second game! :D

This is a very well done mod, especially for an alpha, there are a few things I think need to change, though. The puzzles, all of them, are way too simple. There's no real challenge to this mod. With every puzzle, you know were to go, and why. It's just, too simple really, there's much more that could be done considering all of the scenes that I have witnessed in this mod, there is a ton of creative potential here with these puzzles.

And, I also hope there will be more chapters then that, as so far the ending is really sudden, it kills the mood.
And, maybe, since this mod appears to be VERY professionally designed, especially for an alpha, the zombies could have custom AI in the future, and of course better models than the cartoony Half-Life 2 zombie models. As for the story, there is nothing to really complain about, it's sort of a stereotypical zombie story, except it's just confined to one island, which I think is a nice change, really, an island that the culperates are trying to cover up, in any way possible.

The voice acting, is not very good. But I never expect great voice acting in mods. Though, I have a feeling, this mod in the future will impress me again.

The soundtrack, is very nice, the atmosphere, very very nice.
All of that, and it's still an alpha, this mod deserves a perfect score.

Thoughts on this mod.
Interesting, detailed, fun, great atmosphere, especially in the sewer sections (Which I wanted to be longer because they were awesome), good soundtrack, pretty polished for an alpha, very few bugs.
Just a few things I think would make it better.
The voice recording needs to be redone with a bit more emotion, also to me it sounded like the actors were trying to be quiet while recording, especially the guy who captures you in the sewer, the sewer level could have some enemies, because personally I felt there was potential for some really good tension, but it just never really came up.
I think it'd be awesome if you could lower the amount of ammo the player is given, but I guess that's kinda impractical with the number of times you have to shoot the zombies to kill them.
How ever, fantastic mod, I really enjoyed it and I can't wait for the next release!

We're working on the voice recording for the first scene, and the sewer capture scene is being re-written.

Ammo is going to be distributed on the basis of whether you need it or not in the next version with dynamic spawning, hopefully that should cater for all skill levels better.

Thanks for the feedback, I hope you can play the next release!

This was an awesome mod. A few minor things like a crowbar on the ceiling, but i guess thats me not liking a slight challenge, i just spend like 20 mins chucking the rocks at the boards, enjoying the story so far and cant wait till a more complete story comes to light.

Keep up the good work and cant wait for the new weapons coming.

P.S. Im loving them Custom Barrels!
