Title: [HL1 survival horror mod] - The Whisper
Post by: RavenPest on August 21, 2010, 07:18:41 PM
Hi everyone, its the first time that I write here, but I've been following this community for quite a while.

I'm presenting to you today my HL1 project called The Whisper.

Something about the storyline:

Richard Wallen is one of the most brilliant and over-the-top medics on the field.
Man of great talent, he defeated cancer with his team of six doctors and specialists from all over the world.
From the moment he defeated this terrible disease, his popularity grew constantly, until he reached the top of his fame, internationally.
One day, after being interviewed by the local reporters, he walked inside the PharmaCorp building to continue
his research, but was stopped by one of the members of his crew. A very rich and once famous doctor required his assistance. A letter was delivered directly to his office, and after a brief read, he decided to
accept the case no matter what the disease nor the circumstances.
Someone was in danger, and he had to help with his talent. Plus, he was a over-the-top, world famous doctor, treated as a superstar. He couldnt let this chance of even more popularity go to waste.  
Along with the letter, there was a sample solution of unknown nature, and an invitation for him to join the rich man at his house, to discuss with urge of the case in question. Richard quickly gained all members of his crew and started a journey on a small plane brought by the corporation to participate in the mysterious meeting with the old doctor.
But a raging storm ruined the party; a very strong wind, less to no visibility and thunders were the cause of the
plane crash. Fortunately for Richard, he was shoot out of the plane and he fell right into a small lake near the
old man's mansion. He fell unconscious for some time, then he woke up near the crashed plane. Fire was burning the remains of his fellow companions.
Engulfed in fear and terrifyed by that shocking discovery, he took out his flashlight and started searching for
some sign of survivors to help out. The surroundings were dark and sinister, with no sign of life.
Were them all dead? Who could've call to help? And what about the old man's request? Completely lost and trying to figure out a good way to solve his problems one at a time, Richard started his
exploration...


The Whisper aims to be a classic and unique horror experience at the same time, mixing elements from Haunting Ground and taking inspiration for its environment and plot form the Resident Evil 4 beta called "HookMan" by the fans. It also has some elements form Eternal Darkness.

Here are some screens to prove that I'm developing and not just talking  ;D

At the moment, I'm searching for some members to form a strong team to develop every aspect of the game at its best. What I'm serching for is:

- 1 modeller to make some models, player model and enemies
- 1 coder to help me adding some small but very important features

If someone's interested, just drop me a line here

Judging from the pics, these look like the best RE style maps I've seen so far. Good luck with the mod!

That's pretty impressive, try to keep a consistently dark/scary/whatever your goal is kind of atmosphere throughout. Good luck to ya!
