Third person horror adventure designed for Half-Life 2. No weapons, no fighting. Only means of survival is to run or sneak past the monsters.
It was the longest mod I've ever played. Yeah, graphics were very out-dated, but I'm not a graphic *****.
Story was kinda cliché, however was also fun to follow. Puzzles were great, and the atmosphere in the intro made me to go this far. It never repeats itself and I never got bored.
I love Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Fatal Frame and other horror series, so I could see the many inspirations.
I'd like to see a more polished story, but I think that'll be in the next game.
Thanks for your effort, I just finished a great mod.
Haven't quite beaten this yet but I've played through the mansion and I do love this mod. I can see the serious thought put into the game's design and the details such as the skins and level design/scare placement. Too rare do games scare you while not giving you assault rifles and this game succeeds in the penumbra/amnesia style of leaving you helpless. This is a good thing in my book because it puts the player on the edge of their seats as they grit their teeth doing things they normally wouldn't want to do but have to to survive.
Can I say I was stunned by the quality of the game; the music and atmosphere was impressive and enhaces the player horror experience. The story was like something out of a novel and I had muscle cramps from the constant tension. It was super scary! -Constant running and playing hide and seek from the scary zombies w/o having guns to shoot >.<
The dialogue wasn't clear andand simple animations from characters was null. Either way, this game is amazing and a must play!
