From the depths, your journey home begins. Scintilla is about mystery, solving puzzles both of the gameplay and of the story, but there is also combat --and horror-- involved. Our themes come out of spiritual qualities, imagination, dreams, symbolism, and our goal is a vibrant, atmosphere-ridden adventure. This mod is being developed on Half-Life 2 Episode 2, and so it requires Ep2 to run.

Hello, Let´s get started, shall we?


What´s Scintilla?
Its a first-person adventure, with a heavy focus on story, atmosphere and puzzles, like our previous mod, Flesh. There´s some combat, and the gameplay is more straightforward. This is no sequel or such, but a original piece, its own beast. Our themes come out of spiritual qualities, imagination, dreams, symbolism, and our goal is a vibrant, atmosphere-ridden adventure.
This mod is being developed on Half-Life 2 Episode 2, and so it requires Ep2 to run.

Who´s working on Scintilla?

Jesse "The_simian" Harlin is doing a great new soundtrack and sounds
Danboe is handling our coding
David Müller is handling 2d art and design sketches (a lot of those)
Rüdolfs Eberliņš and Oskar Jansson help out on modelling enviroment props and-- other things
Leon_Kilean, me, Im leading, handling the level design and dipping my hands into everything

When will it be done?
..Somewhere in 2011. We started around September 2010, and I intented to release 2010 Christmas, but things bloated, as they always do. We´re definately half-way thru by now, and Im certain we´ll release this year.

...That´s about it for this time, start tracking and I´ll give you sweet updates. Any thoughts, questions, curses and blesses, do leave comments!

´till next time

Beautiful atmosphere in this video. Flesh was one of the top Mods of all time and I expect this will be right up there with it
