Creepy and inspirational this mod inspired me to create my own story. Too many people in the world hear "Video Game" and think of fast passed FPS action. Not too many understand that a game such as this can exists and tell a deep story of someones past. things as imaginative as this can only exists in books.

I cant tell you how many times i have played this game for its complexity and simplicity. Great work and keep it comin.

Amazing story, amazing mod in general. Like a creepier Dear Esther, it changes the way most people view the apocalypse. A game that replaces guns with a dark memory of them.
9.75/10

From the initial playthrough I did of this, I can see immense potential for its further development, and applaud the author's decision to go back over it and bring it to perfection.

I abosutely loved this I loved the atmosphere and at points I was scared because I thought something was going to jump out at me in the dark and overally the scripting was great aswell same goes for the level design and some of the messages on the wall. 9/10 thank you for this great mod ^_^

Post Script. A suspenseful story of a single being living in an apocalyptic world. Once alive, now destroyed because of one mistake. Is it the loneliness and sorrow that makes you want to take it back? Or is it just the grief from your only allies?

By far the best mod I have seen yet.
Very well written.
Not a single glitch.
Puzzles fairly easy but its just the beginning.
Very different from most games you see which is good.
(I'm tired of seeing the same games over and over again.)
Left me wanting more.

Deeply captivating.

I may just be easily impressed, but this mod really catches my attention. I can definitely feel some deep story and tension here, and I really would like to see this continued.

Loved the way it was played out, but it really annoyed me how the dialog flashed, how fast do you think everybody reads before it fades away? I would have enjoyed the mod more if would be given the time to read the text by having extended time when the text was longer, or even voice acted.

Another piece of buggy non-art for the delusional modern-art hipster.
It is clunky, cluttered, uninspired, dull, boring, AND LAZY!

There are many great non-games made with the Source Engine that actually have an artistic feel. Both Nestlings & this don't fall into that category.
