    Why is only the first entry playable? All the rest are inactive even if after I have passed the first one.

    1. weskerplus2000

      put in the developer console sv_unlockchapter 8 and will be fixed

      1. feyun

        Unknown command

  2. Unq

    Sorry! The command is sv_unlockedchapters “8”

    The download is now fixed, you shouldn’t have to do this anymore. If you already have the old download, use the console command above.

    No reviews yet, so I figured I would post a quick one of my own. These reviews are based off of my passing thoughts when I played these over a year ago, so they won’t be super long.

    The Sun Vanished by ThatsRidonkulous
    It is great!

    Really good visuals and sound design here, the world feels real and that adds a lot to the horror elements. I kinda wish the whole “sun vanishing” idea was explored a bit more, and I can’t say it particularly scared me, but aside from that, this entry is as good as it gets.

    Unanswered Questions by The_GuardianTM
    It is okay

    I honest to god remember nothing about this entry so I assume it was just “okay”

    Lab-Map by White_Red_Dragons
    It is okay

    Feels unfinished, missing alot of files (this might have been fixed since I played it), but overall, pretty inconsequential.

    Gracey Manor by Matt71490 AKA Event Horizon

    My entry. Competition came out of nowhere so the idea was somewhat half baked at the start and developed as the map went along. Ending was really abrupt, but I ran out of time to implement the ending I wanted to use. Also a huge reference to the Disneyland Haunted Mansion attraction.

    Terminus by David Driver-Gomm AKA Kralich
    It is okay

    Really short, but not terrible for what it is. Pretty much straight down the middle for me.

    Shadow Walker 2 by 1upD
    It is great!

    One of the few maps that actually managed to scare me. The use of the custom code here is great (after all, the author created it), and there’s pretty much nothing bad to say about it.

    Mom and Dad by LordDz
    It is good

    Really interesting idea/story but the horror elements are somewhat cheesy and hard to take seriously. Aside from that, a really solid entry.

    It is okay

    Kinda neat visually but boring in terms of gameplay and execution.
