“It’s clear that the creators are striving for atmosphere above all else. The locations themselves all feel grounded and part of the world and optional extras like newspaper cuttings and even usable computers add more pieces to the puzzle”

About This Game

Estranged tells the story of a lone fisherman, whose ship is stranded on a mysterious island during a violent storm.

Explore the rich environments and meet the curious inhabitants of the island as you find a way back to the mainland. Face both danger and intrigue in this perilous adventure, where you will soon find that not everything is as normal as it seems.

Features


Original Gameplay and Story - The game features around an hour of story driven gameplay. It includes a completely original cast, with a carefully crafted script to bring the Estranged world to life.

Amazing Graphics - Estranged is built on the same engine Half-Life 2 runs, with some additional features. We have extended the dynamic lighting system to allow us to illuminate our levels in a realistic manner, and have included effects such as film grain and lens flare to help create the atmosphere for the game.

Original Soundtrack - The soundtrack was written especially for Estranged, and was designed alongside the game's levels. The music matches gameplay, and helps to bring together the atmosphere in Estranged to bring the story to life.

Please note: This game uses some assets from Half-Life: 2. The two worlds are unrelated, and Estranged is not associated with the Half-Life franchise or Valve Corporation.

Better than I expected. I enjoyed trolling around with a hammer after the escape more than anything. Fighting the same captain kirk model is annoying though lmao. Also, you replaced the pistol but left in the Half-life 2 smg? Weird decision.

Everything about this game is horrible. Huge waste of time. The only good part in this game was looking at the cat pics and the video. Wow, cute cat.

This is a great game experience. The story is quite nicely designed and the graphics are also nice. The soundtrack is great and also the voice acting is fantastic. There are many translations and the developers are nice. I recommand to get this game ASAP when it comes out for all of you.

Excellent game! The graphics and lighting are far above that for most HL2 games and the gameplay is fantastic! The music was chilling and I was checking every corner on the edge of my seat. Well done!

FREAKING AMAZING GAME! It's a breath of fresh air when it comes to story, gameplay, and environment. It reminded me of a game I would've played in the glory days of Playstation2, and I'd recommend it for anyone who's looking for something unique. Check out this video on my youtube channel to see gameplay.

For being a HL2 mod it was really pretty at times. The sound design and music was fantastic.
The story was a bit far-fetched in that the fisherman (Gordon Fisherman) can just pick up and fire a gun or an automatic gun without any problems. It would make more sense having him fight with the hammer more or kill using the environment.
Other then that it was a fun mod definitly hoping for an act 2.

Very well-made mod that, unfortunately, doesn't really bring anything new to the table. The story is interesting (although lacking substance), the puzzles are solvable. The 'combat' in the first half is interesting and fun, in the second half it gets hairy with lack of first aid, a limited ammo supply, and the fact that if the wind blows the wrong way you lose half your health. But I suppose that hair-raising suspense is what keeps it interesting... I had a lot of fun with this 1.5 hour mod, but the ending is VERY abrupt and only serves to depress the player even more than the first parts of the game.

All-in-all, very fun, but nothing really new. Still worth the play-through.
