You can download the mod here You’ll need Half Life 2 installed on steam for it to work.
It’s an Puzzle Action-Adventure where you have to build Rube Goldberg type traps to destroy robots, solve puzzles and generally explore the corners of 18th century Steampunk London. There are 6 types of traps that do various things and the idea is that you can combine all of them in various sequences to watch the awesome happen.
It’s about 3 hours of game-play, give or take whether you can solve the puzzles easier or not.
We’d appreciate any feedback, though technically, we don’t really have time to work on the game anymore. Most of the team has dispersed to other projects and back to the jobs we have, but it’ll still be educational of course. It’s definitely rough in parts, but the whole process was educational.
To be honest, I wasn’t sure we’d be able to pull the idea off. It’s based on the concept a Rube Goldberg machine after I was watching an Ok Go music video. Mashing it to 3rd person action adventure was our boldest move and it was the one decision that met with a lot of critique, as well as problems with the eventual game play and systems. Still, we’re very happy for what turn out after 5 months and we’d gladly do everything again, although with increased wisdom about some of the problems we could have solved way earlier.
