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”

“The overwhelming feeling is that things could get terrifying at any moment”

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.

Heard a creepy laughing sound, and something in the water moving around.



Instantly quit the game, I will never touch it again, too scary.



Its a good game if it scared me, im not easily scared. Ok, thats not true, im easily scared. Since I played barely any of it, just ignore my review, ok?

Played through the early release and the current version. Had a great time with both playthroughs. Not too hard, not too easy, good level of tension. Makes good use of Source Engine mechanics and puzzle design. No unecessary loud noises, jump scares, light displays, or nonsense a lot of horror games attempt that kill headphone users and degrade game performance for no reason.

<3 Would definitely play again

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!
