    This is a Total Conversion mod for Unreal Tournament 3, the mod will plunge the player into a dark environment complete with adventure and mystery solving, as well as a host of good scares.

    As the game progresses, the player will venture through a dark haunted Mental Institution, while gaining skills to help them survive in this place. There will be some RPG elements built into this mod, so the player can stand a better chance at survival. For example, they will gain skills such as: Stamina which will help them escape if need be, Weapon Mastery will help the player's character become more familiar with the use of weapons etc. anything that you find in other RPGs will be brought into consideration, There will be two different styles of combat: Ranged, and Melee, Ranged allows the player to pick up anything they can throw to defend themselves as well as guns here and there. Melee of course is the standard, fists or items that can be used as weapons, this mod will force the player to decide how to involve themselves in situations, running won't get you far.

    Because of lay-low purposes, this is all that will be revealed for the game overview. To find out more, head on over to the forums listed above to check this mod out, remember you must sign up as a developer in order to access the locked developer forums.

    Here is the story:

    Originally built by a well known British architect named Jordon Floyd in 1885. The Crayville Asylum has been closed for several years due to strange and dark acts that took place there, everything from Lobotomies, Amputation, as well as shock therapy. Located in a heavy marsh region on the outskirts of Crayville Village, the Crayville Asylum stands as a no trespassing zone for outsiders and tourists. Over the years, the people of Crayville have been complaining of strange happenings and noises coming from the Asylum at night, people disappearing after dark for no apparent reason, and they all believe that the actions of Village folk disappearing traces back to the Asylum's dark and brutal history presently reliving the past, the people of Crayville believe this Asylum to be haunted by forces of the unknown.

    Strangely, the current mayor of Crayville Village mysteriously inherited the Asylum, with no memory of previous family members owning this hellish place. As an act of fear due to the population of Crayville Village severly dropping from 1450 people to 612, the Mayor of Crayville and the present owner of the Asylum calls in a Specialized Ghost Hunting team, equipped with the latest banishing technology and knowledge the PTRS or Paranormal-Threat Relief Squad embarks on a mission to cleanse the Crayville Asylum of it's dangerous threats, and save the Village from becoming nothing but dust and echoes. What will the team discover? over-active imaginations of the Villagers? or something far beyond our imagination?

    Crayville Asylum: Horror Stories is now on ModDB, give it a checking out.
