Neptune is a single-player modification for Half-Life 2, taking place entirely outside the mother game's universe. Set primarily onboard a mysterious and desolate cruise liner, floating in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, Neptune allows the player to slowly unravel the dark and disturbing past of the ship as he/she explores its once-grand rooms, corridors, concert halls, restaurants, bars and maintenance areas. Taking influence from games such as System Shock 2, BioShock, Thief: Deadly Shadows and Silent Hill, Neptune is an atmospheric, narrative-driven, horror-based shooter; an exercise in videogame storytelling and tense level design. It is expected to be released in Q3 2009.

At last, we have some in-game footage to show you! Taken from an early part of the game, this section sees you attempting to restore power to the bowels of the ship, and set the engines in motion. But is someone trying to thwart your progress...?

Apologies for the rubbish quality. We should have a higher-definition version available to download in the very near future. And don't worry - the whole game's not this brutally dark. Once the power's back on, you'll be able to see Neptune in all her glory!

Enjoy!

nice use of sound. although the voice actors seem a bit young. Not child young... but teens-mid 20's
reminds me of penumbra though.

Looks really nice the map seems kinda bare though maybe some different (custom) textures or something.

Thanks for all the incredibly valuable feedback. We're taking notes and coming up with ways to improve Neptune based on your comments. Visually, this vid certainly doesn't show off the most extravagant areas of the ship. Plenty more unique content in the other parts of the game. We hope to have more in-game footage to show you in the near future.

"reminds me of penumbra though." Yeah, me too. That's not really a bad thing though. Good work!

Funnily enough, I'd just finished playing Penumbra before finishing off this level. :)

Even though I've only played Penumbra's demo - I really loved it. So if this is similar somewhat to Penumbra then it will be a very awesome mod! :D

Oh, man, you have to play more of it. The demo's probably the weakest bit. Working primarily as a games critic, it's one of those games that I absolutely love when people say they like it. It's so rough around the edges that, professionally, I probably couldn't really recommend it to anyone on a mass scale. But if you like that sort of thing (a cliché, I know) then it's delicious.
