Centralia is a first-person horror-puzzle game. Our focus is on the artistic side of the game so we have aimed to leave almost none of Valve’s original textures or models in our game. We'll also be adding lots of custom sounds. Some small changes will be made to the source code of the engine but this will remain largely unchanged owing to its complexity. Jim Fletcher is a curious, young, local journalist looking to make a name for himself by landing an exciting story on the ever-burning Centralia. He will travel from his town to Centralia, where a coal mine fire has been burning for half a century. The town has been abandoned for decades, leaving the eerie shell of a community behind. What will Jim uncover on his quest to make that all important good story? Developed by Andrew Furniss & Oliver Davies.

Hello folks!

News 1 comment

Hello there supporters.

We realise it's been a long time since any news or word has come from us and we would like to reassure you that we are still here. We have simply taken a bit of downtime since finishing at university but things are stirring and we have been thinking hard about the future of Centralia and where Jim's adventure will take him next.

We would also like to thank everyone for all their comments and feedback, positive and negative. We are aware of the bugs and issues that persist in Part 1. Any future work will be tested and fine tuned to a much better level as we will not have the strict and stressful university deadline looming over our heads.

So anyway, Centralia is most certainly still alive and we will keep you all posted on any future work and developments.

In the meantime, how about giving Centralia Part 1 a thumbs up Steam's new Greenlight scheme to help us out and get Centralia rolling into the future?

Thanks again guys,

Andy

"Centralia" starts out.....and while it 'LASTS' plays as a very unique and interesting premise -- it is an 'exploratory' mod:

The on-screen 'typing narration' at the beginning of this mod explains that the underground mines of "Centralia," PA began burning in 1962 (which is a true story).....and that they still do to this day.

According my knowledge, by the early 1980s, "Centralia," PA had all been but abandoned...as the entire town had become consumed by toxic fumes which seeped up through the dirt from the mines which in essense made this town completely uninhabitable....and has been an abandoned town even to the present date.

At the beginning of this mod, you find a way to enter a mine shaft elevator which leads to underground chasms of "Centralia," PA.

The custom graphics are pretty well done -- and give one the authentic impression that they are exploring networks of an actual mine. There is some suspense....but while this mod 'LASTS' there is pretty much no 'action' -- hence, to reiterate, it is purely 'exploratory.'

Unfortunately, this is the keyword: while this mod 'LASTS': It plays more like a short 'demo' than an actual mod....and just when you think you are starting to make some headway and when you have the impression that the game may finally start to become more interesting.....this mod VERY ABRUPTLY ENDS -- I estimate it is no more than about a 10 minute mod.

Due to the shortness of this mod, itself, I generously only rate "Centralia" a 4/10.

"Centralia" shows a lot of potential: With a lot more work put into it...it could've been made into a much, much longer and more interesting mod....

Nevermind. Been trying to make it work at Source 2009 version. Switched to 2007 and completed it.

Here's my opinions:

1. What in gods name is the MC wearing? The way he swings the axe makes it seem like he's wearing a plastic KKK suit. In general, the axe-swinging motion is badly done.
2. In the outside area, the MC states the obvious and hand holds you. Small hints are okay, but he tells you exactly what to do.
3. Shock scare over-reliant. This is the worst problem. I stopped the mod as soon as the cheesy, cheap as hell "Dead Guy Closeup" flash happened. Crawling around in the mines hallucinating was cool and well done. But stuff like that is proof of low ambition.

I know you're just modders, but that ain't giving you no excuse for relying on cliche's. I like the idea, and the atmosphere is well done. But please, don't rely on cheap tricks.

Oh yeah, there's also texture problems everywhere.

The doors where stark white for instance.
