As an archaeologist working on the slopes of a dormant volcano somewhere in Mexico, 1940, you get stuck in a cavern. It doesn't take long before you realize this is more than just a cave. You reveal ancient ruins that have been hidden from outsiders for centuries and discover a mysterious artifact, a gold and metal shelled Ball. As you venture deeper into the volcano, you reveal some of mankind’s greatest secrets…

I just bought the game. The graphics are weird, it looks a bit like a cartoon, but it's a pretty good game.

amazing and creative. dont let any of the critics bother u, they're just a bunch of old gamers expecting another "run and gun" fps. this game definitely gives more life to first person puzzles just like portal did and it's really inspiring just to play it. cant wait for your next game.

horrible.....mod it was...mod it is.... I will never consider this as game, it's so boring and not fun that I asked Steam Support to remove it from my steam games to not be ashamed of my purchase... Now I feel peace and harmony again

its not boring. the only problem is replayability, and lenght. no mods, no coop, no dlc, no nothing. at least they made a demo for guys like u. im looking forward to the next episode with the options mentioned above.

I've read in your faq, that the game will be available in Europe by Iceberg Interactive. Will it come to middle-eastern Europe (Hungary in my case)? If so, when?

almost the same as the mod, with some better models/textures. the transparent thing was a good idea at least.

hey, i just bought the game and i was wondering if theres a way to turn of the Vsync because from what ive seen its always on ingame and I didnt see a way to turn it off. it would be really nice if there was a way to turn it off because it makes the performance really bad (mouse delay and stuff)
