II. About Underhell
In Underhell, you play as Jake Hawkfield, a Special Weapons and Tactics operative who recently married and moved in with his beloved wife.
But soon after those happy events, his beloved wife dies under mysterious circumstances, leaving only clues that suggest she committed suicide.
Jake falls apart, and only his best friend, mentor, and boss Frank is there to help him get over his grief.
The mod begins with a wake up call from Frank ordering Jake to come down to the station.
An armed group of elite soldiers have taken control of a hospital and all its personnel.
But Jake will soon realize that this is not a common hostage situation…
The House acts as the hub for the mod. You can come back to it anytime via a special button in the Main Menu. Every time you do something in The House it will save automatically.
If you start The House via the Chapter Selection menu it will completely reset everything in The House and you will lose your progress.
When you are in The House, you can check your e-mail, your mailbox, answer the phone when it rings, or just explore and try to uncover the mysteries that lurk in there.
Even though Jake's wife has recently passed away, you are not completely alone...
UnderHell is split in 3 different "zones"
The first is The House. Each new chapter will have it's own version of The House with different puzzles, different things to discover, and diary pages of Jake's late wife to be found.
The second is The Dreams. With each version of The House will come a set of dreams only accessible during night time via the bed in The House. Dreams will give you bits of information about the story, and might help you understand some future events better. They are very different from the rest of the game in both their narrative and gameplay, and focus mostly on exploration and solving puzzles. They have a few twists to them that will challenge players since they are not necessarily bound by earthly rules.
The third zone is The Chapters where Underhell really takes place. You access a chapter from The House, and when you are done with a chapter you come back to The House. When everything has been done in The Chapters, The House, and The Dreams, you must go to sleep in order to access the next version of The House. That is, when it's released of course...

This is amazing news for the game and the team! This means that the 2013 version of Underhell will be released on Steam, when it's ready to go up there.
This means a lot of extra work for us, as we will have to create, replace and improve the assets of the game to make sure they are up to standards.
Speaking of which, as some of you might have noticed, Alex Voysey has been re-creating the weapons for the game, and we have been keeping you up to date with screenshots, here is the progress on the weapons so far:
As you can see, progress is smooth and steady in the weapons department, on the Programming side, progress is also steady as Charly Sotelo is working on porting the game to the Source Engine 2013, which will not only fix many issues with the engine, but also provide us with new features, such as moving leaves on trees, which should really improve The House visually.
Source Engine 2013 also adds Mac. and Linux Support, as well as Occulus Rift support.
Thanks to the Bug Reports and Technical Support thread we are still currently fixing many bugs or glitches with the game, in the hopes to deliver a bug-free game when it comes to Steam.
No release date yet, we are in the thick of it.
In other news, Pedro Calvo is working on Artworks for the game, more precisely a new ModDB page design, which will hopefully make this page look a lot prettier.
Here is a Work In Progress of what he is currently making:
If only the House looked that good ingame, maybe some day.
On a side note, Youtube user Colo118 has created a Fan Made trailer for Underhell Chapter 1.
It's the first Fan Made trailer created for the game, and it has some nice shots.
Also, the Underhell Chapter 1 Bonus Album can now be purchased!
It includes the Credits Song, the Hermit Song, all the trailer musics, as well as a few extras.
And finally, an update on the Russian and German translation patches.Beez-one and Beserkr have made a lot of progress, and it seems they are both under way, so hold on tight and we will soon be receiving a lot of players from the German and Russian communities!See you soon for future updates!
Highest Rated (138 agree) 10/10
Underhell is one of those mods that comes along every so often, that makes you look at retail and remember when they used to make good games like this...and saddens you a little that the industry can't turn out gold like this these days. In a world of MMO's, Call of Duty FPS's, we get a classic game with a good story, incredible atmosphere, and depth to boot. Fun gameplay on top of that? This is a lovechild, and that is what makes it amazing. This is the result of someones vision come to life. They…
