Whoah. I can't believe it's already been 2 years.

Underhell Chapter 1

UNDERHELL CHAPTER 1 TORRENT LINK


UNDERHELL CHAPTER ONE ALSO INCLUDES A REMAKE OF THE UNDERHELL PROLOGUE

*Make sure to completely uninstall Prologue before installing Chapter One, do not install on top!*

The game ONLY requires Source Sdk Base 2007 installed, no other source games are required.
EVEN IF YOU HAVE SDK BASE 2007, DO VERIFY THE CACHE BEFORE LAUNCHING THE GAME.
(to avoid possible bugs/crashes)


2 years...

I guess it's true that time passes faster when you keep busy. I certainly didn't feel those 2 years pass. So much has happened for me, and I am sure things have changed for you as well.

For those who do not know, I have spent these 2 years working on the game Insurgency



Since the game's release we have been constantly releasing free updates and free DLC with new maps, new weapons, new game modes and improved content, the game has evolved in so many good ways, and it's been a blast to work on this, it has many of the things I love in a game, mainly tight gunplay and intense action and effects.

But that's not all I've been doing during this time, many of you have been sending me messages and posting comments, asking questions about Chapter Two and the future of Underhell. Some of you may think it's dead.

But it's not

Underhell has never been developed in a traditional way, I can realize that now that I am part of an actual game development team. It's been created in a very specific way which allowed me to make sure all the aspects of the game matched a certain style and fit in a certain way, and even if I had to make sacrifices or let some things go due to lack of personnel or time, the formula has worked so far.

It just takes a lot of time.

And that's really all I need from you at the moment, some of you have been asking to send donations, but I would rather not. It is true that from now on I want to be able to pay every team member that will work on this project, and therefore the financial side of things is a new concern, but this is all part of the process of making a game, and it will be dealt with in due time.

Some art

All this cool concept art has been created by Paxilon, who I have decided to hire after seeing the art work seen above. She was able to bring to life designs for future characters that I have had in mind for years now. There is plenty more of Character Concepts, but some of them would be spoilers, so here are a few of the non-spoiler ones.

The future

I am currently working on other projects that is true, and I am not spending as much time working on Underhell as I used to, that is also true. But that doesn't mean it's dead, and that doesn't mean I've given up.

I've said this many times, but after a while people stop believing it, so I have to say it again.

I will not stop working on Underhell, and Underhell is far from dead, and as long as I am alive I plan to keep working on it whenever possible.

News are and will be scarce for this, simply because I do not like to post news when there is nothing substantial to talk about. So it is possible that there will be silence from me and the development during some time, and that's the way it's gotta be until the game has made more significant progress.

Chapter Two is the biggest and largest Chapter of the game, in terms of size and scope, it has the most characters, more environments and quite a few memorable set pieces scenes. I want to make sure it is done right, and I'll take my time and the Source Engine is getting old.

I am developing this in a way that if we were to switch to another engine, we wouldn't lose the work that has been done so far, all these precautions and slow and careful building takes time, so that really is all I ask from you. Time.

I don't work in a AAA studio on this, in fact at the moment it's pretty much just me, and that is the way it's supposed to be for now, so all you can do is wait.

And we all know how hard that can be.

In the meantime, there's another game that kept us waiting which releases today. So let's go play that.

So, i need a little help :P, I'm currently at the level after the big warehouse thingy, and i have no real way of progressing, im stuck in a safe room with 3 hp and the only weapons i have is a sniper rifle with 15 cartridges, and a glock with 15 bullets and a wrench, whenever i try to silently crouch around or do anything at all, the zombies will find me, and 20 zombies will just come flooding in, it is nearly impossible to take them all out with a sniper rifle, cant you use stealth against zombies? and in that case, when do you then get to use stealth?

You can just position yourself on a ladder, I remember there is one where you said you were stuck. The zombies can't get to you and you can just kick or headshot them, just remember not to get too close or let any of them climb up, else you will fall and be killed.

You can either try to load an earlier save with more health, or try to take them out with the sniper rifle from a vantage point.

You can lower the difficulty to EASY if you are having such a hard time.

Keep us posted ! Good luck !

yeah i guess, also, is it intended for the zombies to instantly forget about you when you hide in a closet, i've countless times ran away from a zombie that was on my tail, then i would close a closet/cabinet door infront of it and stay in the cabinet, are they just too dumb to open cabinets/closets, or arent they sopposed to? because it seems a bit weird

They won't forget you were there, they won't go away either, so in most cases you will be stranded in the locker.

In 1.2, they go away during weaponless parts.

this mod is amazing :D but voice acting sometimes is too quiet and cutscenes are little too long but combat system and lighting are great and i like idea with food (hero can be hungry) tis is great but sometimes i was little angry about numbers of enemies but its okay :D

This is one of the few mods that deserve to go standalone, at least in my opinion. It would require changing the borrowed HL2 sound/textures and maybe paying a licence fee for the Source engine (which I'm sure a Kickstarter could help. People love this enough to help fund it if needed.) But it would be worth it.

Agreed, however, a Kickstarter would fair most likely. FOr whatever reason, Underhell is doomed to be unpopular, though utterly amazing. I don't get it.

Cry of Fear sucked in comparison to this, and reached over a million downloads. 100,000 the first week. It was a total let down for anyone who had followed Cry of Fear since it was announced, as the game we were shown was nothing like what we got. And yet it's hype allowed it to go Standalone.

And here we got a game, far more unique, more features, more content, great story and gameplay, and co-op coming in the future as well.

It's really quite unfair.

Well, I just finished chapter 1 last night and I have to say... I was completely blown away. Forget the Prologue, Chapter 1 felt like THE WHOLE GAME. But yet I know it's still only the first chapter. This was really well done Mxthe, congrats to you and your team. I'm now going to crawl back into my bedroom set up in the vent shafts and eagerly await chapter 2.

PS: Loved the Hermit, he's an awesome character. I also liked all the other characters too. :)

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…
