About Underhell ============================ Underhell is an Episodic Modification for the Source Engine. Chapters will be released once they are developed. What you have just downloaded is Chapter 1 and a remake of the Prologue with the newest engine features created by the development team. Underhell borrows from many genres and would be best described as a First Person Shooter Action/Adventure Psychological Survival Horror game with RPG elements. These RPG elements include secondary quests with multiple outcomes, random survivors to rescue, different items to scavenge, and getting better equipment through both exploration and game events. --------------------------- .Notes. --------------------------- 1.) Alt-tabbing the game can cause performance issues, crashes and graphical glitches. 2.) Make sure to close all unnecessary programs before launching the game for optimal performance. 3.) Running the game with the console enabled will disable the menu. Please note the message in the console: Underhell is a storyline based mod with pre defined features that are enabled and disabled within the levels. Tweaking the features will result in playability issues and will most likely crash the mod. It is recommended to avoid playing with the console commands. So please close the console, and enjoy the game. --------------------------- .The House. --------------------------- The House acts as the hub for the mod. You can come back to it anytime via a special button in the Main Menu. Every time you do something in The House it will save automatically. If you start The House via the Chapter Selection menu it will completely reset everything in The House and you will lose your progress. When you are in The House, you can check your e-mail, your mailbox, answer the phone when it rings, or just explore and try to uncover the mysteries that lurk in there. Even though Jake's wife has recently passed away, you are not completely alone... --------------------------- .The Game. --------------------------- Underhell is split in 3 different "zones" The first is The House. Each new chapter will have its own version of The House with different puzzles, things to discover, and diary pages of Jake's late wife to be found. The second is The Dreams. With each version of The House will come a set of dreams only accessible during night time via the bed in The House. Dreams will give you bits of information about the story, and might help you understand some future events better. They are very different from the rest of the game in both their narrative and gameplay, and focus mostly on exploration and solving puzzles. They have a few twists to them that will challenge players since they are not necessarily bound by earthly rules. The third zone is The Chapters where Underhell really takes place. You access a chapter from The House, and when you are done with a chapter you come back to The House. When everything has been done in The Chapters, The House, and The Dreams, you must go to sleep in order to access the next version of The House. That is, when it's released of course... ============================ III. Story Background ============================ You play as Jake Hawkfield, a Special Weapons and Tactics operative who recently married and moved in with his beloved wife. But soon after those happy events, his wife dies under mysterious circumstances, leaving only clues that suggest she committed suicide. Jake falls apart, and only his best friend, mentor, and boss Frank is there to help him get over his grief. The mod begins with a wake up call from Frank ordering Jake to come down to the station. An armed group of elite soldiers have taken control of a hospital and all its personnel. But Jake will soon realize that this is not a common hostage situation... ============================ IV. Tips & Hints ============================ 1.) It is recommended not to play with the console commands. Nocliping around the maps or using "impulse 101" could cause some level glitches. 2.) You can kick open doors. Doing so will kill enemies standing behind it. 3.) Underhell has free aim, ironsights, and scopes. Use ironsights and scopes for better accuracy. 4.) Weapons and enemies have realistic damage models. A shot to the head will kill most enemies in Underhell. 5.) Avoid staying stationary during combat. Keep moving or you will be overwhelmed. 6.) If you forget what to do, press the Display Objective key (default TAB). 7.) Watch your endurance meter, the vertical bar at the lower left corner of the screen. It controls how quickly your stamina is refilled, how likely you are to bleed, and various other important things. ============================ V.
