Crysis Mod — The Worry of Newport
The Worry of Newport is a two part mod for Crysis. It is an interactive mystery narrative focused on immersion, story, and atmosphere, rather than combat or action.
The story concerns a nameless protagonist awakening in the ocean outside of the island of Newport. Upon exploring the port nearby and uncovering some backstory, it is on his shoulders to pursue the truths behind the dark secrets on the island. Sacrifices, ancient rites, deities of long past within the ocean, and surviving the very creatures that doomed the island.

Whoa. I didn’t think 30 seconds was long enough to immerse someone in a story, but this trailer nails it. Apart from the quality voice acting and music, the atmosphere created by the in-game events manages to capture that Cthulhu-esque feel.
