Some theories

6 posts in this topic

1. Chapter One takes place in UDRC.

2. Fly to ARC and escape from ARC were fake.

3. There is something about Hermit. In Hermit's Lair you can see a newspaper with artcle about firing of house. Last view of House during Void (after 3rd reading of Tom H diary) shows firing of house.

4. After 4th reading of Tom H diary in Labs you can see Guilt in tube.

5. In Level 5 you can find first clues that Ch1 isn't set in ARC but in UDRC. During "first light" cutscene you can see Parking roads and offices in Level 5 are very similair to UDRC offices from Prologue.

6. During Prologue you can figure out that "terrorists" invided city from Arizona - so PMCs were already in ARC and outbreak happend there too.

7. Posterus was developed in UDRC. Jake was part of it. Something bad happend in Labs. Tom left Jake to Frank.

 

RANDOM THINNKS:

 

- i'm not sure about Jake 1 and Jake 2 theories (clones) but cloning may be a part of story,

- Jake is somehow releated to ARC too because he projected his memories from UDRC into ARC,

- Jake can be a Cure for infection,

- House isn't real,

- Events in Underhell so far:

 

Hospital, Mall, Parking, UDRC offices, Berserk, UDRC prison, faclity outbreak, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4, Level 5, Train, Warehouse, shoot in head, capture by SWAT, Police Station (projection of memories from UDRC into ARC), city outbreak,

Dead City...

 

Underhell is awesome HL2 mod! One of my fav games all the time!

Police Station (projection of memories from UDRC into ARC)

 

Right, although I think that the only element of ARC (in Jake's projection) is the fake placement of UDRC in Arizona and maybe all the buildings outside during the fake escape part.

 

- House isn't real

 

I almost agree, but I think that:

  • the House before Hospital is the only real visit.

OR

  • the House before Hospital is also fake, BUT it contains recollections of events which happened for real: Jake answering Frank's call, packing his things and driving to the rendezvous point.

I have completed Underhell another time. Some notifications:

 

1. There are several clues in Chapter One that Jake is in UDRC, not ARC:

 

- In Level 2 Oxygen Room there is conversation between Terry and Ben and Ben questioning the sense about a prison in middle of the city,

- in Level 2 Mainframe monitors show view of the city,

- in Level 5, the room where Matthew was killed is similiar to the room where SWAT found Jake at the end of Prologue,

- Level 5 offices are similiar to UDRC offices from the end of Prologue,

- During City Void, Jake can see a huge hole under the city,

- Policeman said that thanks to Jake's story they found a way to enter the faclity and Jake wasn't send to Arizona so they found entry to UDRC,

 

2. Random thinks:

 

- When Michael said "So tell me Jake" the flashback starts,

- Jake wrong think that PMC captured him in Police station and send to ARC,

- escape from ARC was mind fantasy,

- thanks to some conversation between inmates you can learn that Hermit lived in faclity since build of it,

- Hermit is very important character - in his lair you can notice newspapers with article about firing of his house - his house is similiar to The House,

- The House isn't real - its a place in Jake's mind (everytime when Jake was sleeping or was in trouble he shift to House)

- after 3rd reading of Tom H Journal you can see firing of The House,

- after 4th reading of Tom H Journal you can see Guilt in test tube,

-  the infection started in ARC - Terminus can be a source behind it,

- at first there was outbreak in ARC then there was another in UDRC,

- terrorist attack in city was a cover for PMC actions in UDRC,

- the city seems to be based on New York (Twin Towers, NYC registration tablets on police cars),

- after Berserk Jake was captured and send to prison in Level 0,

- the scene where SWAT found Jake after Berserk was set after escape from the faclity,

- we don't know what happend with Jake between shoot in the head and found by SWAT,

- Jake somehow knows about ARC because he set his memories from UDRC into ARC,

UDRC came first; it could be on the other side of town.

 

Then Jake is sent to the ARC.

 

Chapter 1 here.

 

Michael puts Jake in a trance at the end of the Prologue.

 

Chapter 2 intro here.

 

So the two can potentially exist.

It can't be because ARC is supposed to be in Arizona.

 

Prologue - Hospital, Mall, UDRC Level 5, Berserk (capture and send to prison in Level 0)

Chapter One (flashback) - UDRC Level 0, UDRC Level 1, UDRC Level 2, UDRC Level 5, Warehouse (shot in the head and capture by SWAT)

Chapter Two (the end of flashback) - Police Station, Dead City,

During playing of Chapter One you can find a clues that you aren't in Arizona but in the faclity under city where Prologue ended. But Terry's speak about Code Red lead to huge misleading. Terry's speak lead to think that he described UDRC terorist attack and all events are now set in ARC but this is wrong. Later in Chapter One you can find a very obvious clues that Chapter One takes place in UDRC.
