You are a detective named Hughes who is called to investigate strange events and mysterious murders that have been happening in a small village of New England. As of this first release, only the prologue is playable. It serves as a proof-of-concept and to show the mood and atmosphere we would like to achieve from an eventual full game. Your goal in this demo is to find a way out of the room at all costs. Looks for clues, visual cues and audio cues that point you to elements of interests in the room.

This totally escaped us last week, but our mod was featured in Episode 62 of Podcast17. The guys give their pretty positive review, or rather, their thoughts and impressions of the mod. They start talking about the mod at the 29:20 mark of the first stream. Check it out here:

Keep your eyes peeled in the coming days for a post-mortem of the mod and learn of its fate.

Good start on the mod. Still waiting for that postmortem report. Eh, well, it's been several years. I guess all of the community support you got wasn't worth an explanation.

Right, I admit to not being a clever man, people reading this are going to agree with that completely. But do I need to buy Half-Life 2 before I can play a mod? Or can I just install this mod and play it?

One of many mods for half-life 2 that should have been finished.

The demo itself has tremendous effort put into textures, models and atmosphere.

While there is one scare in the mod, the atmosphere is what held it together.

And then it ends.

It's a shame, really, even for a demo it is abruptly short.

But what it had to show was amazing, if only the mod team continued development :(
