Not a REAL story that grabs you, but very descent!
Mapping is Very good and done with a lot of love!
Scripting is also good\very good.
Sounds are good - no new sounds
Voiceactor are good too, better then average story's around.
Overall 8.5\9 for this guy.
He proved that a custom story could be awesome and scary,
Even without new stuff.
Everyone must play this if you havent even played this before.
Superb custom story. What a bizarre, Lynchian setting. Way too many 'wtf' moments to count (Washington and the Back to the Future reference come to mind). Super, super creative with the secret passageway, monsters, storyline, and otherworldly elements. The only big downside was the the writing and dialogue were all terrible (and all seemed like they were said/written by the same person instead of different people). But the game mechanics were awesome. Just when I thought these mods were getting stale I find something fresh and often scary. Great job.
The end was very disappointing!!! "All was well." - This should be the end of story. It really made me angry! But overall it was great custom story. Amazing voice acting, mapping, scripting ect. I would give you 10, but I just can't. The end was twisted so bad.
This game is amazing.
I played only one session and beat the game. It definitely is short, but the narrative is amazing. It confused me at first, and I am still wondering. I am not going to give spoilers, but this is a hell of a game. The storytelling is one that is not clear, but gives clues. I pieced together the information to figured out what happened, which makes this possibly the best story a game could have that I've played. It was very compelling and moving, and I got tears in my eyes when I first pieced it together.
The graphics aren't the best, but that does not ruin the atmosphere of the game. The only difference between this and the mod is the graphics and (I think) part of the ending. There was no extra voice-overs (from what I know).
The voice acting was great.
All in all, this is a much have. There is so much to learn in this, and I don't think I discovered them all. I just had a wonderful time with this game. Sure, this game isn't for all, but for those who are in love with story telling and some story puzzles and clues, it is an amazing "game".
Overall a very cool game!
Nice Graphics, lovely Sound and bascally good controlls.
But I found some minor issues till now:
-I miss a slider for mouse sensitivity
-Sprinting is only toggleable
-Some lightning problems in some houses (may be only on my machine)
-Textures look not the best on my 24" Display
It's free, it has a lot of content, it's simple yet so fun to play, and the concept is very interesting and nicely executed. A great way to kill some time, Mr Coffee's Descontruction is hard not to love =)
