From the depths, your journey home begins. Scintilla is about mystery, solving puzzles both of the gameplay and of the story, but there is also combat --and horror-- involved. Our themes come out of spiritual qualities, imagination, dreams, symbolism, and our goal is a vibrant, atmosphere-ridden adventure. This mod is being developed on Half-Life 2 Episode 2, and so it requires Ep2 to run.
Computer issues, mod delays, teeth cancer, things like that. Oh and first proper screenshots!

So my computer broke down, and the mod´s delayed..
..Luckily that happened about two months ago, and now Im back in business. Hoho, what a twist!
To celebrate this, I uploaded the first screenshots. The cool thing about being off-modding for a few months is -a good sleeping rhythm aside- it gave me some good perspective on what I was doing, and plenty of time to sketch and overhaul things on paper, just obsessively trying to think of how to make the levels more interesting, visually or gameplay-wise, and what sort of puzzles or situations I could (or should) throw around, things like that. If you have an artistic block with level design or modding, just take a few weeks off, does wonders to your head (like nosebleeding, hallucinations, mood swings, depression, teeth cancer).
But yeah, here´s media then, sorry it took this long:
´till next time, which hopefully isnt that far away!
