Keys is Released

Hello. It's been a long road but Keys is finally finished and ready to be set out into the wild. We hope you enjoy playing it.


You can download the mod here on Moddb. Or you can download it directly from the site. Make sure you have the 'Source SDK Base 2013 Singleplayer' installed as all future mods will be running on it.
If you experience any problems in-game just remember to read the readme.txt that comes with the download. If that doesn't help then just shoot me a PM here.



The fantastic soundtrack by Logs From Borland is released on Bandcamp at a pay-what-you-want price. Get it here. It features a lot more tracks than the mod.

Final Transmission

Thank you for following us after all this time. I'd like to personally thank each and every person who helped and supported this strange little creation of mine. It's been quite an experience.

Just finished the mod and I understand why people might be confused since you are left with few excerpts of your characters/other character's past as you solve some simple and intuitive puzzles and discover floating 'journal entries' in the form of mysterious entities.

I love the experience overall with its picturesque scenery and unique aesthetics, but in terms of its depth/plot, I would think a couple playthroughs and interpretations might be necessary in order to understand what is going on since there are a multitude of recurring symbols and images.

For those who are unsure whether to try the mod, I would give it a go since it's free and obviously shows a significant amount of work considering the imaginative worlds and beautiful accompanying soundtrack placed throughout..

Nope you just need the Source SDK Base 2013 Singleplayer installed. It comes with any of the Source Engine Half-Life games iirc.
