Titan: XCIX is a first person adventure that takes place aboard the ill fated star ship of the same name. When an accident rips apart a lone ship on a routine mission, the crew find themselves fighting for survival, and each other in a unique Single Player experience, that's been in the making for the past two years. Developed single handedly by Robin "IZaNaGI" Molde (Jailbreak!: Source, Survival Mod II for JK:JA), Players will face many challenges that will test their brains rather than their trigger fingers. Requires Half-Life 2: Episode Two

A high quality, but short mod. A lot of fun for thinker types.
If you are looking for an action packed game from beginning 'till end you will not find it here.(Despite there being a few action sequences)

Good things:
+ Very fitting maps (Lighting and art style fit well together and the art style is consistent)
+ The mod makes you feel like one of the crewmen, you aren't just a mindless drone that has no more to do but shoot at anything that moves. Plus, they actually treat you like a crew member they've known for a long time (The way they talk to you)
+ It tells it's story in various ways, sometimes with cut-scenes, sometimes with (well done) text files one can find and most of the time you witness things as you play and listen to the other crew members
+ The story, while not original (racism is nothing new, though still a big subject for us) is told really well and is interesting
+ There is a lot to explore and the story, while linear, offers you a lot to ponder and think about
+ There are quite a few other crew members to help you or hinder your progress. They feel fitting and are all different, they don't feel generic. (I have no real complaint about the voice-acting, either)
+ There are some (very) challenging puzzles
+ The ship's AI is funny and interesting, even if the idea is nothing new

Bad things:
- The mod was a bit short and the end was a bit sudden
- It was sometimes a bit difficult to beat some puzzles
- A bit nit-picky: The other crew members should really use some custom animations, the standard Half-Life 2 animations don't always feel that fitting

Needs work, especially with dialogue timing, but it's pretty good. The low-pressure part needs a faster move speed. It reminds me of Metroid Prime's water part way too much. Good puzzle elements, too.

while i found it entertaining i feel like the mod moved at too slow a pace and the voice acting need to flow more it sounded quite coppy and there were several instances where a response should have come right away after the previous line but instead there was a 2-4second delay

Other than i above mentioned items i found it quite enjoyable I feel that with a couple of updates and maybe a little bit of a rework of the begining it could be much better

Great work here. I gave this a 10/10 even though the voice acting could have been better, it was better than most. Great atmosphere and story line and you did a great job transforming the characters. I look forward to other MODS by this group.

Excellently designed mod, something different, almost perfect. My main gripe is that there is severe a lack of ambient sound or music throughout a lot of the game (unless I'm experiencing issues) this would add a lot of extra atmosphere to a great story/game.
Excellent visuals, voices, level/character design, plot, setting and atmosphere. Needs MORE MUSIC and ambience to make it feel complete.
A highly recommended experience.

Finally, I just had to delete the content of Gameinfo.txt and copy and paste and formatted it as suggested in the other gameinfo.txt... It worked like a charm!!! Most importantly it worked very well... Well done..
