1.Download the mod.
2.Extract the zip file into the UT2004 Folder.

You may watch the intro movie or go directly to the menu by escaping [esc key].

All happens in the near future. You are Talos Davon, and you arrive to the moon research colony that exists for meny years, in order to work as heavy machinery specialist. But no one come in contact with you and no one come to meet you. You enter an enormus, abandoned station which scale is unknown since its located mostly underground and has many restrict areas that you were forbiden even to ask about. But now when everyone is gonne, who can stop you from trying to find out where is the crew and where the humanoid creatures that navigate trought this station like ghosts, came from. You cannot return since your shuttle won't reach earth by itself and the interplanetar space craft left to mars and next one wont arrive in next few mounth.
The game is a first person, single player shooter which main purpose is to provide Science-Fiction, but in visualy beliveble way. Strong mistery atmosphere and interest to find out what happened, how it happened and whats the source to the problems is. Those are the main motivators to play this game. The best feature is that you feel very strongly your presense inside this station, you feel very well the mass of the objects, structures, and the fact that you are on the moon, and allmost alone.
HM allso brings the old school shooter feel, not entierly copies old shooters but it brings some of that classic feel. You will enjoy mostly clear and understandible gameplay.
Enother feature of the game is that its entierly in black & white. The reason is mostly artistic, since grayscaled image provides better and more precice reception of the light/shadow balance and those are mot importaint elements to provide strong atmosphare and mood. Ofcourse colored version will be provided for those who cannot live withought colors :)
