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
I just finished, and I really enjoyed playing through, and it being more story and puzzle driven was a nice change of pace. (I've been playing A LOT of SMOD) However, is there a second part in development? I'm suddenly really hoping that there is more combat, and a little revision to the movements, like being able to sprint. Something that did peeve me a little, was that the movement speed while crouched was so slow that I moved reminiscently of a snail. Fix that, man. But, criticisms aside, it was an excellent game, and I look forward to part two.
A good mod, very enjoyable. I respect the huge amount of work needed to make something with almost 100% original assets from scratch.
I had no problem with the combat free gameplay. The early part underwhelmed me a bit - the puzzles are so simple as to hardly count as puzzles. When compared to say, the Research & Development mod, also for HL2, the puzzles have a way to go in terms of challenge and interest.
But to it's credit, Titan builds up nicely, from the time you don the space suit on, it starts to hit it's stride and the graphics and environment begin to impress.
I've always thought Source offers some of the best single player mods & Titan continues this fine tradition.
The game is a decent length & pretty varied too. I could really see this series growing into something great if it can keep adding episodes & developing. I don't for a minute under estimate how hard that is & how much time & effort it would take.
Thanks for your efforts so far & good luck in the future.
