Exactly 1 year ago, Prologue was released. Here's a little present.

Posted by Mxthe on Mar 5th, 2012

Well, can't believe it has been one year already, since the Prologue was released.

I would have loved to release this new Chapter today, it would have been symbolic and easy to say :
"Hey look, I made this in one year!"

But whatever, we can't pause time can we?

Anyhow, I really want to thank everyone who's been here since the beginning and who has been following this project, it was a fun ride, and it still is and still will be.
Let's see what happens next shall we?

Anyhow in the meantime, here is a little "Anniversary Gift" for every House Lover out there.
A 1080P HD video of The Prologue House Remake.
Yeah don't expect me to reveal the Chapter One House more than it already was in the Waiting Trailer.
(Before any of you get excited let me tell you that I won't spoil any "events" in this video)

Here are some of the feature displayed in the video :

  • High Dynamic Range
  • New footsteps and ambient sounds
  • New bed model
  • A clock that actually tells the time of the day, and rings whenever it's 12.
  • Tv can be turned on and off
  • Fridge emits sound and casts a projected texture
  • Every day the HDR exposure values are randomized, therefore some days are brighter than others.
  • Randomized Rain System, with Random Thunder, with a Random Chance of blowing the fuse.
  • Randomized spawning of the New Fuse, that you have to search for.
  • Day and Night cycles now slowly changes instead of being sudden.

These are only a fraction of the features that were added to the Prologue House, which will be available in every new iteration of The House in the later chapters.

Enjoy !

Happy birthday to one of the greatest mod ever made, even if there is only the prologue release!!

And the House is going to turn into the most terrific video game thing ever, at this rate... Now that I've finished Cry of Fear, NH2, AoM, I can proudly tell you that the House of Underhell is still the best horror mod!!

Good luck for the rest of your mod and once again, take your time so that it'll be perfect!!

Happy Birthday Underhell!!!
I really like the mission and the house chapter. It's really one of the best games I played. I like the music, the story, the action, the house, the atmosphare....
Take your time. I know it will be an awesome mod. And that's motivation enough for me to wait.
Good luck with the other chapters. I hope you will develop the mod to the end and not make a sudden stop. There were too many good devs which made that.

Oh my god that's sexy. Such amazing detail in a mod. From the day I downloaded the Prologue, this always seemed like something that would be expected for a retail game, except that this isn't. Underhell fully immerses the player in a way that most games can't anymore, and the amount of detail put in is something a lot of games miss nowadays. Thank you for this awesome mod, and Happy Birthday.

I really enjoyed the mod so far, Is there an E.T.A. on CH #1 yet?? This could of been a retail game!! Please finish this mod soon. For a half-life mod this is one of the BEST i've ever played. Keep up the spookiness, So again great job!!!
