Reviews

“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

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.

Estranged: Act I is a free to play game which is a plus to the game since the game don't really explain what to do and where to go and you then find yourself doing loops and doing the same things. The game is very confusing but the story lines get better the more you progress through the game. The atmosphere of the game is pretty intense. The game does give some good gameplay, but the registrations could be a bit better and the overall game could be more solid. The music that plays is also pretty good. It has some tense and creepy music, that gives the levels a dynamic eerie feel to the game, which is a bonus for a game that tries to give the scary feeling, which i think is half achieved. Although the game feels half finished, you can get some fun from this game, and the more time you put into the game, the better it is. The level design is good and it is generally a well half built game.
