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!

Posted by Leon_Kilean on May 31st, 2011

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:

Who goes there? Who goes there?

´till next time, which hopefully isnt that far away!

Yes this really happens.

Awesome looking screenshots. Looks like it'll have some great atmosphere like Flesh had.
