Excellent mod. Long and satisfying play.

Fantastic game, played version 1 when it was releaseed so thats what my review is based on.

pros - great story, attention to detail, lots of different maps and a great atmosphere

cons - the final level. really frustrating but as i said, i played version 1, it's been updated since then.


Pretty good environment, great story. I enjoyed this custom story. Great Work!

Awesome custom story 9/10 the puzzles where pretty fun and not that difficult and i liked the monster encounters but maybe you should also use some diffrent monsters because a lot of maps used the same one. I also found the story really interesting.


1 word ; Amazing!

Very well designed maps.
very well scripted events.
long story.
standard storyline.
was hoping to see custom assets.

9\10 for me.

Loved it!


So scary

unique events, decent design-atmosphere, nice length with a bit too much resources, monotony at points and an unnecessary amount of key quests and threatless scares (which were even creative at first). though most of the things are well made, smaller things were a bit off including some parts of the story and notes as well. i'd definitely like to see more from the author, and appreciate the effort put into this, my score is 8/10. fine work, but don't stop here! :D

For your first mod it was a masterpiece well i saw first mods that was excellent and your made a pretty good job too well done 10/10




real story line beginning , middle and the end...Mario too fun
