viRULEnt was my second project at the Games Academy in Berlin. Target was to create a mod for Half-Life 2, NeverWinter Nights or another moddable game.
That means, you will need Half-Life 2 to play this game.
The game has a Film Noir-like cyberpunk setting. The player is something like a detective and through the whole episode, there will be only two weapons: your cyborg-arm and a Magnum revolver. The mod has a dialogue system wich was not provided by the engine. It was created with C++ - not with the editor - and directly built into the engine.
There is an end-boss, but the episode is made to continue with a second episode. So, the ending is somewhat open..
You can also download the source code of the entities made for this mod.
There is a zip called viRULEnt_develop.zip, where all source, some test maps,
some models and a source documentation is included. This files are meant for learning purpose. The source documentation also explains how to get started, making a HL2-Mod.
