I'm surprised this hasn't gotten much attention; It's pretty fun!
Defs needs a coat of paint and polishing in places, but so far I'm really enjoying the characters and gameplay. >w<d
I've noticed a few grammatical errors (missing commas, mostly), and the autoscrolling in the message boxes is a little annoying (I couldn't finish what the ship captain guy was saying ;__;). I'm not too keen on the intro, mostly because it's a looooot of cutscene and very little gameplay. I'm also a little bugged by how Gordon escapes...? It seems way too improbable and convenient -- I think it'd be better if he was thrown from the tower as well.
Mapping defs needs some work; some of the maps are too big for the teeny tiny sprites, so it looks awfully strange. If you like, I can link you to some games that use the same or similar tiles as you with RTP sprites and do some spectacular mapping. It's definitely good to study up on what other folks do!
You also mentioned the art not being done yet...? Is this sprites and stuff? I'm guessing you've located CLOSET's resources (I thiiiink Tara looks like she came from there) so I won't say more on that.
The music is pretty dull right now, and it's defs not changing up enough. I can recommend some awesome sites where you can find boatloads of commercial free midis, though!
Keep at it -- this is pretty cool! I'm only in Theebs at the moment, but I'm gonna keep playing. I like what I see. >w<d
Thanks for the feedback. I intend to open up the 'break-in' scene at the beginning, let the player do the walking around themselves instead of it all being automated. The current 10-12 minutes seems a bit long for a player to wait before moving for the first time.
The audio needs a complete overhaul really. There's a lot of great resources on this forum alone that I need to spend some time looking through. Any links to midi libraries would actually be very helpful. Audio should enhance the games atmosphere and complement the visuals, at the moment I don't feel it does either of those things very well.
Visuals are a constant work in progress for me. I know I still have a way to go but I'm confident I can get it all up to standard. I neglected it all for far too long.

Just played through the first few moments and I'm a fan...lookng forward to really getting into it. Hopefuly my game will be half as good as this when complete.
Thank you for the kind words.
