We're excited to announce that to date, Estranged: Act I has had over 167,000 unique players worldwide since its release in January. We are immensely proud of how Estranged has been received by fans all over the world, with masses of playthrough videos and feedback given to us on the forums and ModDB.

Today we'd like to officially confirm that Estranged: Act II is under development, and will be the next instalment in the Estranged series, continuing on from where Act I left off. As we promised in a forum post back in January, we can also confirm that Act II will be a paid-for title.

Join the Team

The Estranged development team is continually looking for volunteers to contribute to the next instalment in the Estranged series, Estranged: Act II. Do you have experience designing levels, creating 3D set pieces or designing characters? We're looking for volunteers to join the project at this exciting stage of development - we would love to see your existing portfolio work with any game engine on any platform.

If you are interested in joining the team, please get in touch with us at Be sure to include existing examples of your work, and any projects you have worked on previously.

The source code for Estranged: Act I is now available in its entirety on GitHub!

The code includes the custom menu system, the implementation of HBAO and depth of field, all fixes for dynamic lights, the custom vgui::HTML HUD control, and other miscellaneous features.

We release the code in the hope that it will help other mod teams using the Source SDK 2013 implement features in the future, now that Estranged: Act I has been released.
