I found this earlier on digg and didnt see anyone talking about it so I thought I would throw it up. Penumbra is a first person survival horror game made by students in over a year. It features a physics engine parallel to HL2 , and graphics that are close to being on par with FEAR. I started playing it earlier today and its really damn cool , its FREE and only a 200MB download. Check it out!

Seriously, where do people find these things?

I'm a big fan of The Home of The Underdogs website and other abandonware\freeware sites and I never find stuff like this.

There has to be some big "awesome free game" repository somewhere.

Anyone know of any sites like that?

I like it, reminds me of resident evil. Only problem is that this game is more friggin contrived then that one. You have like 15 puzzles to solve in ur first hour of playing. Other then that its alright for a free game.

It's a good game, but to say that it rivals FEAR in graphics is so far from the truth. It looks nice but nowhere on the level of FEAR.

Graphics look nice, more SIMILAR to that of FEAR, but definitely not riveling FEAR's graphics.

I'm dl'ing it now. Should be interesting.

Absolutely amazing, and for FREE?.... i've bought games not asgood as this.

The way it's named on download.com suggests they might make more chapters and stuff.

And notice on their forum people begging like "OMGZ... Please a do a Weenux port" hahahah

They are like, eeerm, we're too busy improving the engine. Go away!

Figures, 5 minutes into it and stuck already:( Never was any good at this type of game.

Actually it emulates just fine under Wine on Linux. Probably helps that it's written using SDL which is cross platform to begin with. Edit: Just make sure you don't move the mouse while it's starting. For some reason that screws up your mouse movement real bad.

Oh, and I'm also stuck. How the hell do I fix that damn key? Edit again: nm, apparently you don't need the key until later.

Okay, just tried it. I'm sort of stuck. I'm in that corridor just as you get out of the first room- when the lights go out. I say sort of stuck cause I have a pretty good idea of what I need to do, and several different ideas of how to do it- but it is late and I'm going to bed for now. I'll try a bit more tomorrow.

Great game, though it appears kind of "fuzzy"- not sure if that was intentional or not. And the aliasing is annoying- probably due to bloom being enabled.

Great game, especially for free.

nice find, the puzzles seem pretty fun although all the vent stuff is a bit confusing. Pretty scary too and good music, only this time no weapons like in Doom 3 or FEAR to kill things, must use wits. I got attacked from behind and I cried :cry:

Great! Thanks. How many levels are there? How long is it? 200MB isn't much.

I guess around 2 hours according to their forums. I've seen paid for games alot longer than this that were only 1/2 as good though.
