    Hello one and all!


    What we have here, is a small project I like to call Gm_Apartment. Remember those by-gone days of survival horror games, with their charming puzzles and characters that controlled like m1 Abrams tanks? Yeah me too! It sucks that there are literally none around these days, some of my best memories were from playing the Silent Hill games at 1 o'clock in the morning back when I was 12. Ahhh, childhood scarring. But I digress.

    Gm_Apartment is a small single player map that re-creates the gameplay of those old Survival Horror titles. Explore an old deserted apartment building and discover what stories the previous residents left behind! Pick up items! Use them! Solve puzzles! The fun will literally never end!

    Media:


    Quick look at the map (video):



    Images:











    Download Links:



    Dropbox

    Mediafire

    Patches:

    Patch 1

    IMPORTANT INFO

    -Inside of the addons folder, there is a folder called new surfaceproperties. Read the readme in it. The new surfacepropertieswill make it so that textures with the 'carpet' surfaceproperties will have new footsteps sounds. If you got annoyed like I was that carpets sound like dirt when you stepped on them, this map will fix it for you. It is completely optional.

    -Episode 2 is required.

    -Oh and uh... you can use the typewriter on the second floor. It's not terribly obvious.


    Who are these fine men working on this project?

    Mr. Sunabouzu (Reason134): Handles the map, all the art assets, and planning.

    Unrealomega: Coder. I'm pretty sure he just rolls his face up and down the keyboard, and sometimes computers understand what it means.

    Phanterm: He tells me to change dumb ideas I have and really this entire thing would be a mess without his input. He will also beat you up in any fighting game ever.

    Thanks to all my playtesters and the lovely people from Gangsta Gang Gaming for various grunt work!

    Special thanks to beautiful people Sam and MacDGuy who decided to fix some shit! I didn't even ask! That's how nice they are.

    Oh yeah and as usual: You are allowed to reuse any content in this for your own projects. Go ahead, just please credit us somewhere if you do.

    Finished it! It was pretty damn scary. Silent hill style ambience that kept me sunken into my chair.
    Trippy ending as well, but i do have one complaint.

    That typewriter puzzle was shit. There was no hint that it would ever be usefull. I think having a photograph of the area the answer is in (Without the Blue light) would help that alot.

    Anyway, GREAT map. Absolutely astounding.

    I'm going to just spoil this one because i'm getting a lot of nasty letters already:

    The answer to the typewriter puzzle is in room 101

    Now please stop threatening to hurt my kitty. Professor Marshmellow has nothing to do with this.

    There's also some Easter Eggs with the typewriter. Fuck if I know what they are.

    Also, you're lucky I got lazy and didn't finish the Slide Puzzle.

    You're welcome.

    EDIT: We're going to re-release the map with some slight altering(Mostly to fix some tiny bugs) when we upload to Garrysmod.org. You won't notice any real differences in design, so it won't require a second playthrough.

    Update

    We fixed some shit. Because someone said we would.

    Dropbox

    Mediafire

    Changes:
    -Typewriter has been redesigned so that it should be much clearer on what the player needs to do.

    -Some minor behind the scenes changes, mostly involving how triggers and the loading doors interact.


    Garrysmod.org is still on the fritz but I will try to upload it there soon. Peace y'all i'm going to bed now.

    Well, i dont see maps like these by a loong time...
    Loved it, played it without checking Facepunch for hints (Only used the internet to    Check the dates of the persons in the pictures    the history is very awesome, in the end    Where the guy tells the story about the persons on his left and right    i have done my best to dont cry, and i havent, but its wonderful.
    Also, i laughed at the    My Little Pony    loadscreen easter-egg.

    Sure its a great map, i recommend everyone to try this!!!

    Wow, this was excellent. Good to see that you refrained from blatant 'fuck you ima popup in yo face and scream' tactics.
    The only down side is the     large text bit at the end. while it served the purpous of tying things up, the average user who finds this map on gmod.org isn't going to stick around to read it.   

    Edited:

    also, do you think you could re-release this so us posers could use this?

    Okay, I was shit scared from the beginning.
    The atmosphere is very similar to Silent Hill 2 and that's why it's very creepy.

    Took me around an hour to get through the map. I really thought it was yet another stupid deatchmatch map but I gave it a shot anyways. And I'm glad I did. This has a wierd, yet amazing story to it and the map is small and simple, but feels so... perfect?!

    Thanks for this great release

       You need to replace the lightbulb on the lamp with the blue one.   

    Very cool map! Was linked to this by a friend and played through it. Enjoyed the entire map and was extremely glad there weren't any screamers in the map - it kept classy.

    So far, I've noticed this, and the Rarity "Scream" painting in the bathroom.

    Fellow brony, perhaps?
    Nah, I don't really have any opinions on the show, I was just kind of hoping someone would get really angry about ponies in a videogame.

    Hey kids

    Some good samaritan's by the name of Sam and MacDguy fixed some small issues with the game, I don't want to mac a big deal about it but they really are cool guys.

    Get it here

    The patch fixes some typos with the thing at the end, some key description, and restores the flame to the lighter. Pretty nifty eh?

    Ah, okay. I'm a guy who just assumes things too quickly.

    Still amusing though.

    Edit:
    Glad there's no screamers. Scary maps without those are a-okay in my book.

    When i   took the pliers from the pills and i was locked in, and someone walked up to the door, i hid behind the fridge and almost   shat myself.

    Also, the bit where the   hanging   girl   disapears, i knew it was coming from the start, but it still   freaked   me out.   

    Thanks for having    a REAL horror map with no    screamers!

    You can scary people by two ways: first one is the easiest one - scare people by suddenness.
    And the second way is - psychological, there is no sudden appearance of something right to your face, just gloomy atmosphere that can make you quit the game, because you will be afraid of it.
    This map is a great example of second way. I wish that there were more maps like this one.

    Warning, possibly spoilers in the picture.
    Also, this is reference to Afraid of Monsters?
