Evoking Fear in the Player

Feature

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."

This quote from H.P. Lovecraft is dominant in my mind in this mod's development. Strange noises just around the corner, notes so vague they're uncanny, a completely hidden storyline the player has to theorize themselves.

The fear of the unknown scares everybody, and it is the prominent focus when working on this mod's story, level design, sound design and the soundtrack to give the player the most unsure, creeping, disturbing feeling imaginable for a horror game.

I asked this before, but I will ask it again due to not getting a response ^^. (written in May)

Are you going to remake the story completely? If remastering is going to take over half a year, I can surely except "not only slight changes". What are you planning to do with the remastered? I'm also tracking this :p

I'm redoing the story, levels, adding in hours of extra content and fleshing out what was already in the original Metus. And I'm sorry for not being able to get back to you as I have been working as of late.

Don't play the original. It's not worth your time. This, however, will most certainly be if you're into Penumbra or anything modern horror.
