Post news Report content RSS feed Underhell Chapter 1 : Features Showcase Video

Hello everyone, and welcome to this Features Showcase video! I believe it is time we start to talk about some of the new features and content in Underhell. There are still many features and details to talk about, but this new information should be enough to help you understand some of the Core Gameplay elements of the game.

Posted by on

Greetings everyone!

Since the mod started development in March 2011 to March 2012, I had been working mostly alone on the actual content of the game, besides Tom Stoffel and the amazing Voice Actors, no real Programming was being added, and therefore I was mainly focusing on Design and Environments.

Everything changed in April 2012, when Charly Sotelo, contacted me to fill up the Programmer role, and soon after, Progsys started working in the Modeling department.

About 8 months, and hundred of hours of work later, I believe we are ready to show you a Features Showcase video, that will help you understand some of the Core Gameplay elements of Underhell, and why the game does emphasizes survival.


The video was voiced by Joseph Bracken, I would have liked to voice it myself, but I was having a hard time taking myself seriously, maybe some other time!

We hope you enjoy the Video! And would like to remind you that you can help Underhell get on Steam Greenlight by voting for it, if you think it deserves it.


Since Underhell has had no release during 2012, it would be ironic to ask you to vote for it in the Mod Of The Year awards, but keep in mind that the votes also include Most Anticipated Upcoming Mods.
So if you are excited about Underhell, and you think it deserves your vote, we greatly appreciate it!

Can this mod become any more awesome?

Does this game have an inventory system.
After that some kind of crafting system could be added and players could make stuff.
Maybe mixing some things together to get some better food at some of the kitchens around.
Maybe being able to coat ammunition with something that makes them more harmful to enemies.
What about stealing an enemy ear plug which would allow the player to hear the enemy radio chatter.

About something like a crafting system, it makes me think of Resident Evil 2, there i you found some gun parts you could add them to some compatible weapon and improve it.

About that game there was a shotgun which could use multiple types of shotgun ammunition, this would be an interesting feature you could add to the game.

Maybe little too late for that kind of scripiting... okay idea, but so hard to execute it to ingame, whitout serious thinking put behind.

Not many games which good inventory/craft system anyways that i remember. Stalkers ammunition management was awesome though.

Although Underhell does feature an inventory, we do not intend to add a crafting system, such a system would require an enormous amount of ingredients and new items, as well as balancing to ensure a fun experience.

Putting a crafting system isn't worth it, unless it is well designed and well executed.

In that case maybe no crafting system but weapon addons would be good, you already got a silencer, these things could be of the same nature.

Damn, BMS is good but it's only a remake.
And Underhell is going to be far better than BMS!
I'll buy soundtrack five or six times, because the music is amazing D:
