Steam Workshop Support

I'm excited to annouce that Estranged: Act I now supports Steam Workshop!


Click the image to jump over to the Estranged: Act I Steam Workshop!

There are a few items in the workshop already contributed by the Estranged Discord community. I also added my map that started Estranged, from August 2011:

There is a full guide documenting how to download items from the workshop as a player, and how to upload your own maps, sounds, models and materials as a developer:

Compatibility

The workshop tooling is currently compatible with 64-bit Windows, with Mac and Linux versions on the way soon. If you'd like to speed up this effort and offer to test, please join the Estranged Discord server and ping me directly (@AlanEdwardes) - https://discord.gg/estranged

As part of this update, the Hammer launcher has been fixed, and now appears as an option when launching the game.

Thank you for playing Estranged, and I can't wait to see what items you develop for Act I!

March 2019 Update

An update is now live for Mac, Linux and Windows with the following changes:
  • Statistics collection is now disabled autoexec.cfg - previously it was opt-in, the difference is now the game no longer asks at first boot if it can collect statistics, and runs with them disabled unless explicitly enabled
  • Replaces all URLs to point to iamestranged.com - previously some URLs pointed to alanedwardes.com/estranged which was the temporary landing page since I wasn't sure whether I would be able to keep iamestranged.com (!)
  • Custom content support - The "custom" folder is now enabled in gameinfo.txt for custom content out of the box
If there are any other changes you'd like to see in future updates, let me know in the comments, or via Discord: https://discord.gg/estranged



Thanks for playing Estranged!

“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.
