This Mod Is A Great-Looking, Full-Blown Survival Horror Game

It's called Underhell, and it's calling itself a mod — although it's closer to a full, standalone game. Specifically, an episodic survival horror-adventure game.

Underhell is a Source mod, meaning anyone with a copy of the Source SDK Base 2007 — obtained through Steam as a free download — can try it. The mod features large, non-linear levels, an original soundtrack, and a full voice cast, all serving to tell the story of Jake Hawkfield, a SWAT operative investigating her wife's recent death. Here's a small, twelve-minute slice of gameplay, released by the developer earlier this year, which shows how all that looks in motion:

If you're interested, you can grab the first chapter of the mod from either Mod DB (where the mod is currently #1 on their Top 100 list), or you can visit the official site for the torrent download. There's also a Greenlight entry you can vote on, if you so desire.

    'Jake Hawkfield, a SWAT operative investigating her wife’s recent death.'

    So Jake is a transsexual? Bravo for the devs taking such a bold step!

      ....yeah, or you could make the more logical assumption and assume that Jake is a woman... Ignoring the spelling mistake, why would Jake have to be transsexual and not just a gay woman?

    It's all well and good to have a "full voice cast", but there's some very poor quality stuff in that video...

    Looks interesting. That FOV could be toned down a little for more immersion.
