Underhell is a Source Engine game developed by the Underhell Team in collaboration with We Create Stuff. Underhell Chapter 1 requires ONLY Source SDK Base 2007 installed. No Source game is required.
Utterly stunning in every possible way. The atmosphere of the house is incredible, keeping you on edge for every little sound, every door closing or opening on it's own. The dream sequences are dark and disturbing, with that same edge all the way through.
Then you get to the action sequences and it's here that this mod beats just about every commercial game in the fps genre. The weapons are perfectly balanced and truly feel dangerous in your hands, the SMOD style of free movement gives you the opportunity to attack with speed and grace while the ironsights give a nice little fallback point when longer range accuracy is needed.
The storyline so far has done extremely well to give depth to the characters (Jake's partner's diary is a nice touch, and quite interesting), the soundtrack is a step above just about anything I've heard in a HL2 mod bar Minerva, Dear Esther and NeoTokyo, and all this in just the prologue. Wow.
Eagerly awaiting Chapter 1.
