Centralia is a first-person horror-puzzle game. Our focus is on the artistic side of the game so we have aimed to leave almost none of Valve’s original textures or models in our game. We'll also be adding lots of custom sounds. Some small changes will be made to the source code of the engine but this will remain largely unchanged owing to its complexity.
Jim Fletcher is a curious, young, local journalist looking to make a name for himself by landing an exciting story on the ever-burning Centralia. He will travel from his town to Centralia, where a coal mine fire has been burning for half a century. The town has been abandoned for decades, leaving the eerie shell of a community behind. What will Jim uncover on his quest to make that all important good story?

Developed by Andrew Furniss & Oliver Davies.

Hello folks!


Hello folks!

Apologies for the recent silence. We have taken some downtime since university to give ourselves some breathing space. Things are stirring in the Centralia camp though!

Nevermind. Been trying to make it work at Source 2009 version. Switched to 2007 and completed it.

Here's my opinions:

1. What in gods name is the MC wearing? The way he swings the axe makes it seem like he's wearing a plastic KKK suit. In general, the axe-swinging motion is badly done.
2. In the outside area, the MC states the obvious and hand holds you. Small hints are okay, but he tells you exactly what to do.
3. Shock scare over-reliant. This is the worst problem. I stopped the mod as soon as the cheesy, cheap as hell "Dead Guy Closeup" flash happened. Crawling around in the mines hallucinating was cool and well done. But stuff like that is proof of low ambition.

I know you're just modders, but that ain't giving you no excuse for relying on cliche's. I like the idea, and the atmosphere is well done. But please, don't rely on cheap tricks.

Oh yeah, there's also texture problems everywhere.

The doors where stark white for instance.
