TL:DR - Solid work; a must-play for SCP fans.

"When Day Breaks" is a properly executed mod based on a solid source material.

Pros:
-Voice over
-Some very effective scares
-Overall atmosphere
-Intersting spin on SOMA's interfaces
-Gameplay and environments are cohesive with the story (e.g. the sunlight section)
-Well done voice overs

Cons:
- The pace really bogs down at the middle(the bulk of texts and recordings is put in one place)
- Puzzles are original, but nothing spectacular(I do acknowledge they're not the focus of this mod, however)

The mod delivers an SCP experience which is very different from the already released SCP games, and thus is definitely worth checking out.

I'd rate it a 7, but for the sake of it being a mod made on a fairly undiscovered engine I'm giving it an 8.
Cheers!

Who made this mod has potential one of the best soma mods that I played till now (there's not many unfortunately) one thing that I would love for the team to improve next time, is the clarity of the voice acting, for a non native English speaker like myself, there was instances where I couldn't understand what the voice actors were saying, mostly on the voice records. Taking that out is a very nice mod, if short. Btw Alien Isolation was a inspiration i'm sure... ;)

Insane how great it is

great tbh, it's one of these mods that are so good it really fucken hurts when it's over

really proves timan's technical capabilities not just as a modder but as a designer as well, i especially enjoyed how the puzzles were handled; reminiscent of games such as half life, the player would actually have to examine the environments carefully in order to come up with solutions for the problems

10/10 would get gang raped by proxies again

No peanut :(

Nothing to say about this mod. Just perfection :) By the way I love your lighting and whole Idea of Puzzle in the last map ( broken Hangar with lightbeam ) :) and offcourse Terminal Puzzle before this map :)

A solid custom story for SOMA with simple, but clever puzzle solving. It's very faithful to the lore behind the SCP-001 proposal and fits within the SCP Foundation universe.

When Day Breaks is a very exceptional SOMA mod, that may be the best I've played in a long while. Considering that it's only 4 maps, one of which is just a cinematic, the developer clearly put loads of effort into this. Excellent sound design, combined with some actually scary segments that does the article true justice, I have to give this mod an 8. There are setbacks that keep it at 8, though. Otherwise I'd just give it a 9, or even a 10. For example, the mod's first map is kind of rushed and not consistent in quality when compared with the rest of the mod. Additionally, the ending is rather unsatisfying personally. Overall, it's a great mod and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good SOMA time.

Very high quality, legit terrifying.

a very intriguing mod, visuals look very nice, would definitely recommend this mod!
