A semi-episodic short form single player experimental alt mod for HL2:Ep2 trying to bridge the gaping canyon between Tale of Tales and commercial game design.
Well, it sure has an emotional appeal (that's pretty obvious) however, it didn't manage to touch me. After hearing the ModDB community critics i could only imagine this was a fascinating history, well it wasn't, at least not in my point of view. You see, the first level is too short but could have gained some credit as an introductin chapter if you hadn't to point out the constellations, yeah i absolutely suck at that so maybe it's my fault but i thought it was very irritating to find those damn stars and that broke the vibe i could possibly feel during the game, if instead of that you made the chapter all about observing then it would be absolutely different. In my opnion it would be a lot better if i just watched the sky while i heard the couple's history and the guy showed me where the constellations were, second chapter however was a LOT better, the only thing i can conplain about is the existance of an exit door, i don't think the player should have the possibility of simply aborting the treatment experience whenever he wanted. Anyway, great work guys, i really like the concept of what you're working here and i honestly hope you keep going forwards with it, i also expect the evolution of the quality between the third chapter and the second one to be as huge as it was between the first two chapters.
FINAL SCORE: 7,6
OBS: The chair animations in the second chapter were all messed up but that didn't bother me, also, at the last scene you can parkour through the psychiatric office and manage to get to the top of the wall and fall of the map
Highest Rated (4 agree) 10/10
A beautiful mod that presents a very enjoyable change from more "typical", gameplay-oriented pieces (not to say those can't be enjoyable, of course. It's just that this mod, to me, was a great and unexpected experience). Certainly deserves attention.
