Haunted is a six month team game project built using the Half-Life 2 engine and offers new forms of AI and pathing as well as new game mechanics, sounds, level design, art content and musical tracks. Haunted focuses on providing an oppressive and frightening experience for players and is best described as a horror survival game seen from a third person perspective.
Haunted takes on the time honored role of telling the heroís journey as represented in the Odyssey. Using a modern twist, Haunted follows the trials of a Vietnam Vet named Oban returning from war when suddenly his plane crash lands into a city filled with vicious, light fearing creatures known as the Haunted. Players must use any form of light to avoid or trap the Haunted as they attempt to survive the night. Armed with only a pistol and flashlight, Obanís flight through the dimly lit streets of the city will challenge and frighten players.
