“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.

A short game, Estranged: Act 1 delivers a compelling performance of a fisherman, who gets stranded on an island during a storm. You meet several people: some good, some very bad, who will help or hurt you as you go along your path. The game is made on the source engine, and uses many of the Half-Life elements and features from it.

Being a free-to-play game, I entered this game not expecting much but a few cheap dialogs and meaningless character development for the sake of it only being the first of the series. Surprisingly, the game delivered more than what it offered, such as an enticing tale of a man's struggle to help those who he encoutered and also kicking a few butts along the way.

The game abruptly ends though, leaving the want for Act 2 to come fairly soon. I was honestly suprised by all of the elements in this game, as well as most of the visuals being such great quality. If you do try this game, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Estranged is an awesome mod that has it's own separate story and locations from Half-Life 2. While the actual game isn't of the best quality, I played through the game in one enjoyable sitting and it is worth it for anyone looking for something to play for an hour or so.
