Dark Evening

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

After the disaster that occurred in Black Mesa and the world finding out, government figures have taken action to reduce panic and evacuate people to safety. In a rural area far away from Black Mesa, you are suddenly awakened by your alarm clock, only to listen to a more alarming tone from an emergency TV broadcast…

Dark Evening is an Atmospheric-Horror Source Engine Modification inspired by classic titles such as Silent Hill, while retaining the familiar Half Life 2 style in gameplay.

Dark Evening takes place between the period of Half Life 1 and Half Life 2. You play as Jake Hill, a man in his mid 30’s who is caught up in the skirmish between the human, alien as well as mysterious combine forces that are fighting one another. Despite the odds being stacked up against him, he will have to fight with all the strength he’s got in order to hopefully survive the impossibly challenging circumstances.

Half-Risen (Demo v2.0)

for Half-Life

Here’s a 12-map (roughly an hour) demo of an upcoming mod. It features quite a few puzzles that require exploration and some lateral thinking – but there’s also plenty of combat. Beware the teleporting aliens and the dark areas. I don’t recommend playing this on hard!

Author’s Notes

This is my first Half Life Mod that I accidentally started. Back in 2017 I was an average mapper and I started doing some experiments. After that I created the first map for the mod and then, after some years when I got better I decided to make a mod. For now this is only a DEMO; the next release will be the final release, hopefully before the New Year arrives.

This mod has custom weapon models and some human models too!

Thank you for playing!

Half-Life: WAR (Demo)

for Half-Life

You are Captain Tony Snyder, a former member of the Navy Seals, and just joined “The Savior’s Order” (T.S.O.), a top-secret military organization specialized in espionage, sabotage, infiltration, you name it.

Since you’re the new guy in T.S.O., you’re getting a simple mission for now. T.S.O.’s informants have been talking about a headquarters of a yet-unknown terrorist group. The headquarters are located in Poland, but the T.S.O. is still not sure where the group originated from. Your mission is to infiltrate the headquarters, and gather information about the unknown terrorist group. Of course, since you’re the new guy at T.S.O., Agent Six will be assisting you in your mission. You will meet Agent Six near the entrance to the headquarters. Good luck.

Note: this release comprises the first mission of Half-Life: WAR, which is still in development.
