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.
Had a moment of time from all the weird magical creepy nonsense going on, and released some new pictures for you to study.

Been a while, how ya guys doing, wassup!? We´re at the ferry to Rivers Dark now, the weather is pretty bad, thunder is looming in the distance, I think its going to rain really really heavy soon.. really epic forces of nature ahead, nothing like you´ve seen before --I think I´ll try to capture it on video for you guys for the next report-- But right now? There´s not much to do. Apart from staring blankly at the thin feil of fog over the sea and throwing in a quick report. Hmm, lets see..
Oh yea, speaking of the sea, there´s medusas all over! No kidding. Like, tons. They dont do much, just hurt you if you touch them - doh. But they keep you from swimming way off to the sea. I guess thats kinda helpful, keeps people on the right path. Jesse loves them, says they´re like straight out of his nightmares. They´re not the only creatures around tho, I´ve seen some weird creepy stuff. Like the lilits, as David nicknamed them. Words cannot describe much, so I took a picture. Only one, and its a bit blurry -sorry about that. I just wanted to keep a bit of excitement for your own adventures.
But luckily we´re not unarmed. I´ve seen an axe, and a few ranged weapons, they all seem rather functional. AND, if thats not enough, there´s these pretty glowy plants all over, edible of course, and they heal you up. So that stuff is covered. To balance all the puzzles and slower stuff.
Oh and speaking of puzzles, I wanted to quickly mention that weird woman, and those creepy boxes. Not sure what that stuff is all about, something to do with our past, present, future.. Over here, Im not entirely sure which comes first, heh.
What else --- well, there´s a lot, like the magnificent beehives, the moose stuff, the black goo, the whole swamp thing -was lost there for ages- but there´s no time anymore, we´re so close to the town now, its answers, the conclusion.
love and manly hugs

PS. Something seems to be slowly ripping thru?
Its something epic, but we´ll have to wait till the next time.. just follow us and keep watching!
