Estranged: Act I Steam Release Date
Oculus Rift Support
Release date: Early 2014
Estranged is a free Half-Life 2 mod built on the Source Engine, available to players running Windows, Linux and Mac. It doesn't require any games to play.


Estranged tells the story of a lone fisherman, whose ship is stranded on a mysterious island during a violent storm.

Explore the rich environments and meet the curious inhabitants of the island as you find a way back to the mainland. Face both danger and intrigue in this perilous adventure, where you will soon find that not everything is as normal as it seems.


Original Gameplay and Story - The game features around an hour of story driven gameplay. It includes a completely original cast, with a carefully crafted script to bring the Estranged world to life.

Amazing Graphics - Estranged is built on the same engine Half-Life 2 runs, with some additional features. We have extended the dynamic lighting system to allow us to illuminate our levels in a realistic manner, and have included effects such as film grain and lens flare to help create the atmosphere for the game. There is also a feature for higher end systems called Phong, which allows us to show reflections on walls in-game similar to how they would appear in real life.

Original Soundtrack - The soundtrack was written especially for Estranged, and was designed alongside the game's levels. The music matches gameplay, and helps to bring together the atmosphere in Estranged to bring the story to life.


You can play a beta of the game for Windows and Linux right now. Just head over to to download.

For tentative system requirements, please see the system requirements for Half-Life 2.
