I know there was another mod that tried to be a paid game and it didn't work out. But this seems to be a border-line scam almost considering the campaign is flex funding and nobody is touching it with a ten foot poll.

My big question is: When did people start to make mods for money? I find this greatly concerning...
I'm all for supporting indi devs and mod makers, but the thought of giving money is a bit foreign. Would love to hear the communities thoughts on this...

The graphics look worse than Half-Life 2 itself... I'm a little surprised, but then again... Yeah, I'm not sure why they want to make it a standalone game when it being a regular mod would be just fine.

Ehh, i like supporting mod devs, but not when it's something this amateur-ish and shady.
Too ambitious for the skills available, breaking canon for their "story", a project lead that seems to focus more on their fan fiction and "emotions" than making a good game.

Yeah, no, i'll pass.

Trying really hard to paint gordon as as the real villain

The new characters models look so smooth and plastic-y, the woman in particular looks really bad
also you can tell the trailer is mostly done in source film maker
Ah?

This Mod is a Joke.

-Dumb Story.
-Stolen Maps from GMOD.
-Character Models made with Mixamo Fuse, they look Awful.
-NPC Models Stolen from GMOD.
-Weapon Models Stolen from Firearms: Source.
-Flashback Mechanic doesn't make Sense.
-It Uses that Awful Gordon Freeman Model by Deviant Picture Films.

Avoid it.

I Know its a Demo, but I don't Expect the Final Product to be any Better.

Man you can really tell how "totally part of the HECU guys" the protagonist is.
Has "H.E.C.U" in big white letters on his vest and wears a blue camo BDU, just like they do in Half-Life. :suicide:

That trailer is really rustling my nerd glands

Let's all take a step back and appreciate the fact that the voice acting for this game is enough to generate a thousand new cases of ass cancer. What the hell is up with that G-man voice? I know he's an alien but in every game where he's voiced by Mike Shapiro he knows how to form words correctly.

This rotten cancer-sore of a commercial Half-Life 2 Mod makes Prospekt look like Citizen Kane.
