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. Read More...

The biggest being that Lewis Denby has stepped down as Project Lead handing over the position to me. Regrettably, progress slowed down a lot during the summer for various reasons but I stayed committed to motive the team and recruited new talent. Our newest level designer, the very talented Armageddon104, has gracefully picked up design duties hitting the ground running along with Gunz, our other level designer. Along with a new level designer I've also recruited a talented artist, 0x40. Obviously, this mod needs lots of custom models, a daunting task for any 3d modeler. However, 0x40 has already created amazing pieces for our level designers to decorate the Neptune with. So with the new talent things have begun to pick up and a lot of work is getting accomplished. We have playable builds and begun playtesting many of the mechanics that are in place, tweaking, adding and more importantly removing anything that just doesn't feel right. I'm proud to say we are all very happy of how the mod is coming along.

The Neptune team is set out to do one thing, create a compelling quality singleplayer experience like the mod community has never seen before. This mod has become more than a portfolio piece for all us, it's turned into a true passion project that we all want to see to the end, completed and in the hands of the mod community.

We will be releasing new and exciting media soon along with first true gameplay footage within the coming months so keep your eyes peeled for it.

However, please visit for all future updates. The only updates that will be posted here is to inform those that receive automated updates that in fact has been updated (confusing?).

See you at sea.

Design overhauls this late in the mod are pretty drastic. What do you have in mind?

We're currently undergoing a pretty big design rethink. We'll be posting about that soon. The design rethink is in order to allow us to move more quickly and efficiently through development. It also, for all intents and purposes, means starting the level design again.

We hope to be finished by late-summer, yes. But that does only give us a few months. We'll keep you updated, and we hope you like the new direction.

Whoa, never heard of this mod before. Looks good.

"Inspired by Thief: Deadly Shadows" - oh dear. I hope you only mean the Cradle level, because nearly everything else was kind of middling.

Calling TDS "middling" is doing it a grave disservice. It's not the best game ever and it's not even the best Thief game, but it's still very recognizably Thief and leagues ahead of 90% of the crap that got put out at the same time.

And anyway it still ****** all over Deus Ex: Invisible War.
