The Shadow Over Innsmouth is a single player Half-Life 2 Mod created for a school project with all the students of my class at NAD Center.

The game begins at night in the city, the player is awakened in his hotel room by loud noises at the door and must flee his hotel. His race will bring him into the narrow alleys of the city to end in the city sewers, but also in secret rooms that suggest dark ceremonies dedicated to the mythical god Cthulhu. Finally, he finds himself in an old port where it needs to reach a lighthouse in a final attempt to survive.

This looks like a greart work in progress, I can't wait for more updates. This is brilliant. However, you'll need to take care of the inhabitants of Innsmouth sounds, because they sound like combine soldiers to me, with the chatter and beeps from the helmet radios, it really takes you out of the game. Also the large creature with the face tentacles and apron is a bit buggy when seen from different angles, and when laying down, you see a grey patch where feet should be, like it was a statue with no feet. But please keep it up!

Played it through just now. Some comments from me.

First off: Well done.
First chapter was very atmospheric. Liked the music and the colour designs a lot, very gloomy and ultimately quite intimidating.
However, I'm going to have to stop most of my positive remarks there.

Character design was nice but lacked variation on the human side of things. I loved the suspense you get from facing a huge mob of them converging on you in a street - but when they're all exactly the same, it wears off pretty fast.
The two headcrab designs were pretty good as well - but the animations for the large creature/zombie and the fish/fast zombie were quite buggy. More often than not, I'd kill them only to have them clip through the floor.
The audio of the creatures wasn't filled in for, which made me fairly disappointed.

The environments aren't particularly challenging or detailed either. I mean, the amount of invisible walls I ran into were very frustrating. I also had to noclip to continue as there was no clear way to reach the point that activated the crane on the beach level!

I don't know. This had a good start but it deteriorated pretty fast - the lack of information on where to go, what to do, the story or why you were even bothering to do what it was you were doing just bewildered me.

The ending too - just a random camera angle and then a really loud explosion sound that went after the actual explosion had ocurred.

Ever still, keep trying I suppose.

The story is based upon HP Lovecraft's novel "The Shadow over Innsmouth". If you want the story, read that. This was a student project, so effort can only go so far with a deadline and a certain amount of contributors.

I know it is, I've read it.
I'm not outright tearing down your work, just attempting to help you if you were to continue making mods etc.

Restarting your Steam would be a good thing to try.

Contrary to what others may think, I see that this mod had a lot of research, time and effort put into it. The addition of so many custom objects and props, textures and re-skins etc. create a very chilling environment worthy of Lovecraft's praise. In case others do not know, and are wondering upon the origin of this mod. It is based upon "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" by renowned horror-writer HP Lovecraft. The story is all in there, and it is definitely worth a read for those that love a creepy story…

Lazy custom animations, nonsensical plotline and weapons, and nothign to tell you where to go.

Horrid mapping, even open spots where your'e able to get stuck, and the ending not only made no sense, but doesn't tell you your'e finished.
