A semi-episodic short form single player experimental alt mod for HL2:Ep2 trying to bridge the gaping canyon between Tale of Tales and commercial game design.

Well, it sure has an emotional appeal that's pretty obvious, however it didn't manage to touch me. After hearing the ModDB community critics i could only imagine this was a fascinating history, well it wasn't, at least not in my point of view. You see, the first level is too short but could have gained some credit as an introductin chapter if you hadn't to point out the constellations, yeah i absolutely suck at that so maybe it's my fault but i found to be very irritating to find those damn stars and that took away the vibe i could possibly feel during the game, if instead of that you made the chapter all about observing then it would be absolutely different, in my opnion it would be a lot better if i just watched the sky while i heard the couple's history and the guy show'd me where the constellations were, second chapter however was a LOT better, the only thing i can conplain is about the existance of a exit door, in my opnion the player shouldn't have the possibility of simply aborting the treatment experience whenever he wanted. Anyway, great work guys, i really like the concept of what you're working here and i honestly hope you keep going forwards with it, i also expect the quality evolution between the third chapter and the second one to be as huge as it was between the first two chapters.
OBS: The chair animations in the second chapter were all messed up but that didn't bother me, also, at the last scene you can parkour through the psychiatric office and manage to get to the top of the wall and fall of the map

I'm only giving it an 8 because of the first part, which I found somewhat weak. The second part though, is based on a really interesting idea, beautifully executed, and is also surprisingly moving. This is a truely remarquable mod, even inspiring in a way. I only wish it could be easier, but I guess it is part of the point.

P.S: the french subtitles are absolute garbage, I just wanted to point that out.

It's a unique experience. The puzzles are good. The maps are well designed. It is extremely short though and the player is expected to assume a lot of the story.

Very different, deep and artistic. But still very, very short.

A longer mod like this with the same kind of quality in content, I would give a 10.

It is a well designed mod with a interesting story line. The gay thing caught me by suprise but who am i to judge :). All in all this mod is worth checking out!

Really great concept and game. I personally got frustrated with it a bit but more at the engine I suppose. I dropped boxes that didn't break at a 2ft drop, then moments later had a different box explode after being dropped 2 inches. I am not putting this against the games score but if there is a way to maybe fix that then I'd love to replay this. I would also like to see more levels in the future with there only being currently 2. However, I think the mod is great so far.

Interessantes Spiel. Ich mag die Art solcher Erzählungen oder "Spielweisen". Vergleichbar mit "The Path". Sehr schön :)
