Estranged, the story of a lone fisherman, stranded on a mysterious island during a violent storm. Explore rich environments and meet the curious inhabitants of the island as you find a way back to the mainland.
Estranged is an enjoyable mod. Good music, textures, voice acting, puzzles, level design. Overall a very fun mod to play. Its storyline is kind of generic (zombies who aren't too scary), but I'm glad you didn't overuse them as enemies. It's nice to focus on things other than shooting. The length is short but I know it's just the first part. My only serious complaint would be lag, especially in areas with many physics props (or at least I think that's what is causing the problem). Some things like a dozen books stacked up in a random place just aren't necessary. Sometimes it's fun to throw things around, but maybe not quite that number. If I had to choose what was the best thing in this mod, I would probably say you did an excellent job with using dynamic shadows. Things like fans and that hula doll looked great with them.
I helped you out on the second release with picking up double boxes and zombie model. So I've been around since the start and this is all fantastic!
The change to faster zombies was a HUGE surprise to me.
However, after the chair the game starts to have moments where you wonder through vast detail just passing it up. No action. No puzzles. Just walking through abandonment. Then I feel almost rushed back into action & then a sudden end.
1. I crash to find an apocalypse.
2. I get into a horror zombie shooter.
3. I play jurassic park trespasser for a bit.
3. I fight 8 zombies with a hammer.
4. I get rushed into a sudden human shooter.
5. Sudden end.
