This mod is the interpretation of my first and only mod I made so far in a way that I would have made it now. You can find the original on my profile but I wouldn't play it if I were you :D You have been warned!
What this mod promises? First of all, it had been completely remade (aside from 3 or 4 from the original mod) levels from scratch, a completely new story and few polished new systems:
What the mod will not promise:
So then why make this mod?
Well, it's very much only a personal passion project (not the Radical Heights kind of passion project, but an actualy one). The development started when I showed this very old mod I made to one of my friends and realised how broken it was in reality. In fact, I don't think it was actually play tested from start to finish. So I decided I would patch things up, fix all the bugs and then upload that version so it can be finished. But there was one problem with it: I didn't like it at all. The story didn't make sense, the levels felt rushed and out of place and the puzzles while ambitious, ended up being unfun or broken. So I decided to remake a few thing in the mod to make it a lot better but then I got into another problem: the story was...let's just say bad (but it is an understatement). So I decided to rewrite the story to make more sense. Right now in time, we are around April-March 2018. Fast forward a few months when I did not work on the project (didn't have the time and motivation at that time). It is now August. I thought about the whole thing again and realised that by strictly making a remake I limit myself way too much and thus I decided to just completely scrap the entire idea of the mod being a remake other than in its name. This way I have a lot more creative freedom in the story and I can really put my hearth and soul into this project. This is also the reason why it is not done yet. Originally I planned to call it "Grandpa's mansion 2018 remake" but not so long ago I realised that I will not be done by the end of 2018 if I actually want to take my time and not rush the entire thing like I did with the original. This is also the reason why the release date is TBD (editor's note, it isn't anymore, look below for more details). If there is one thing I learned from Valve and recently Crowbar ent. (the makers of the Half-life 1 remake, Black Mesa) is that if it is possible, don't rush myself with deadlines. But enough of the hippie bs, I truly want to make this a very enjoyable experience that has a unique style from the base game but still retaining some of its charm. The mod will probably not live up to my wildest imaginations but I do my best to make it as great as I can possibly do in a reasonable time frame.
Love ya'll and stay tuned for my posts. I do post once every month or so.
So I saw many people saying that you can't complete the Offices puzzle. You can. You have to get the window stuck with a chair and pull the lever from the other side. Also a hint: you can get the thing stuck on your head and then place the chair under it so you can get outside and pull the lever ;)
Sorry for the late reply. I saw the very very bad reviews and I was very depressed for a quite a few days dreading to look at this page and finding even more bad reviews. Thankfully I found some support in the comments but you guys had problems with one of the hardest puzzles (arguably) in the mod so I ask two questions. Would you guys want me to make a puzzle guide video? Just in case you get stuck :) I saw one person asking for a lore video but I'd like to keep the lore for the players' imagination :)
We are getting VERY close to launching this mod and I want to share some thoughts
Just a quick update on whatever I was working since the DEMO came out
TL;DR it was probably one of my worst decidions regarding this mod so far, but it was neccesary, or at least I felt like it
