“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.

My Review :

Rate : 7/10

Game Information :

Title : Estranged: Act I
Engine : Source
Genre : Adventure, Free to Play, Indie, Single Player, FPS
Platforms : Windows, Mac, Linux
Developer : Alan Edwardes
Release Date : 16 Jan, 2014

Estranged: Act I is a free Half Life 2 mod made using Source Engine. Its a pretty good mod and has amazing environment. Its free mod and you need to figure your way out by solving simple puzzles. I recommend it to all Half Life fans as it has a similar environment and puzzles.

Pros :

● HL2 Mod but like a standalone game.
● Source engine graphics.
● Bit of horror when you are around zombies and enemies.
● 8 simple steam achievements and one carry till the end achievement.

Cons :

● No boss fights.
● Few types of enemies.
● I didn't enjoy the ending. :(
● Human Enemies can kill you instantly.
● Some maps are laggy and crashes sometimes.
● Bad lighting effects at some places like vents where you can see light rays behind the wall.

Verdict :

Its free so its worth playing, but let me remind you something. It is an episodic game so you'll have to wait for the next episode. It's not perfect and awesome game but as a standalone mod, it has potential.
