Description
Alcatraz is a HL2 mod that utilizes lots of HUD action to help create an immersive experience. Many ideas are still on the drawing board currently, and we are accepting anyone willing to help with this mod. This mod will (obvioulsy) take place in the Alcatraz prison as a horror mod. we wish to create a top notch, high quality mod inspired by team Psyskallar and Frictional Games. This is planned to be a short, fun mod to create and I hope many people will be interested in helping out. Thank you for taking your time to read this!

you must not play that many games, I just beleive that a lot of people use that number. For me some parts of your story seems cliche', not completely obviously. I guess you should be a little more creative with the backround, but that is just my opinion.

I am also aware that at this current time you are unable to upload any screenshots. Though I am merely implying that I would want to see how the look of the game is during play, because it doesn't seem fair to down-vote something that I didn't get a full look at nor is my interest high enough to up-vote.

funny you say that, i don't recall anyone using an in game car ride cutscene or a crash to begin their storyline. i also don't remember anyone using 666, which suprises me. i had another idea, but decided to scrap it because of how cliche' it was. i'm sorry my friend, but you are wrong. also screenshots aren't really possible considering i had a computer crash and lost the little work i had done. sorry guys, it sucks to have to hear that. on the lighter side i was lazy about it anyway and it made me realize to get to work. won't be any screenshots for now. on a final note, STILL NO OTHER MODDERS. i know nothing about coding or modeling, only some mapping and sound, and that won't finish it. i can truly say it will never come out at this rate. sorry again for such a negative update.

for all you guys who want an idea on the story, my idea was actually not to go to alkatraz as a prisoner, but rather a man who was mixed up with a psycho and being sent to alkatraz, until an event occurs during the ride in the cop car and him and his strange seatmate are sent flting into a building. when the man regains conciousness, he wakes to find he is in prison cell 666 and the door is open. if anyone has any ideas on improving this story, don't worry, it is still in development. im still calling out to any modders out there who want to lend a hand!

I am excited by this concept. are there any ideas for story or gameplay you have? I myself would think that it would be cool to have it take place when Alcatraz was still in operation, and from a prisoner's point of view. Good Luck!

I'm glad to hear you guys like the idea, and yes I would plan for it to be longer than a usual mod, hopefully at least 10 hours of gameplay. Though, that would be hard to achieve considering i'm the only one working on it, so feel free to ask me to invite me to invite you to join the Alcatraz development group if you want too help in any way. Thanks in advance!

i would like to see a more immersive HL2 mod than most of the others. Longer game play is always a bonus.
