I Won't tell you a lot about it, this mod is a slight conversion from Farcry. It contains a well detailed (perhaps too much) storyline that i won't spoil here

Review :

I was honestly surprise by this small demo that really introduce to an intesting experience ful of sea and sun.

Design is quite classic and create a good mix not too squary of a lost island. there is no real tremendous layout here and some places may look a little too repetitive but choice in texturing add an enjoyable fresh touch. It's still just a demo that won't add a lot through it's short playtime, but from what we see it's certainly promising

Gameplay is really simple and classic this was also not the real aim of this demo so that apart from finding your way and making some jumps, you won't encounter much to do here. just follow the on screen storyline and enjoy this small little demo

In conclusion: A nice and fresh touch fell with this demo, the progress of this mod is slow and constant and I just hope there will be a future update but nothing is planned in the near future...

Playtime: 15 minutes

Rating: A B C D E (70%)
