This Mod Is Basically A Great-Looking, Full-Blown Survival Horror Game It's called Underhell, and it's calling itself a mod—though it's closer to a full, stand-alone game. Specifically, an episodic survival horror-adventure game.

Underhell is a Source mod, meaning anyone with a copy of the Source SDK Base 2007—obtained through Steam as a free download—can try it. The mod features large, non-linear levels, an original soundtrack, and a full voice cast, all serving to tell the story of Jake Hawkfield, a SWAT operative investigating her wife's recent death. Here's a small, twelve-minute slice of gameplay, released by the developer earlier this year, which shows how all that looks in motion:

If you're interested, you can grab the first chapter of the mod from either Mod DB (where the mod is currently #1 on their Top 100 list), or you can visit the official site for the torrent download. There's also a Greenlight entry you can vote on, if you so desire.

*Full blown survival horror, psychological horror, and stealth game.

And it's just one of the best games around.

This is a better game than the new Amnesia. Hell, this was a free addon!

I'd like it, if the damn game wouldn't glitch out so much.
Never had a problem with the prologue before, but now I can't even complete the sniper part without the game blowing up on me.

Sadly no non-steam version for non-steam users.

Chapter 1 was built as a survival horror, though it declined back into FPS.

Don't compare Underhell to COD either, they're of different levels of quality.
