This game is available as a free download on Steam. It apparently got started as a HL2 mod, but got greenlit by Valve as a standalone title for the store.

I haven't had much of a chance to play it yet, but watched a couple twitch videos of others playing it. It's online coop only. No single player.

Looks like fun except something is wrong with the graphics for me. Everything is PITCH black even with the brightness turned up. Comparing same level screens to youtube etc show that its supposed to be way more lit. Unplayable for me currently and a bunch of my friends. Waiting on a fix!

Same here. I saw some clipping and some transparent walls/floors problems for me as well.

Sad, as I love the idea.

Same here - the game is just too dark to be playable.

Hi Guys,

I have the same problems but an workaround too ;)
Add the following to your launch options:

-console +mat_dxlevel 90 +mat_hdr_level 2 +mat_hdr_enable +mat_fullbright 0 +mat_monitorgamma_tv_exp 4 +sv_alternateticks 0 +mat_monitorgamma_tv_enabled 1

I know, it's not perfect, but enough (for me) to play the game.

And where exactly do we add this to our launch options? And how?

Just an update:

I noticed today that a patch just got released, and so I decided to see if it fixed the problems some of us were having. The brightness is fixed now. The clipping is fixed about 1 out of 3 times I connect to a server.
