This mod for Source is no longer being developed.

Overview

Host is a FPS mod with a strong emphasis on puzzle solving using our unique firing system. This involves Controling the Elements, to solve puzzles and fight off enemies. Set in an apocalyptic future where war is raging between 3 forces on Earth, you are thrown into the middle as part of a Special Ops team to retrive some vital technology before it falls into the wrong hands.

Features

  • Fast paced action
  • Puzzle solving
  • Control over the Elements
  • Imbue your weapon bullets with these elements

Media

Early test of firing electricity
Rifle that can be used in conjunction with elements
Igniting multiple enimies using the fire element
Leaking pipe that can frozen, allowing the player to climb over the wall

Graphically these screenies use a lot of stand in textures and models while we focus on gameplay and level design.

The mod started life as a Year 1 University project in which we had 12 weeks to design, build and pitch a game.
