You play as “Franta Novák” and you work at nuclear waste storage facility.
They decided to illegally move the site into a forest and not long after strange things start to happen.
This is the day you get to work and the shit REALLY hits the fan!
All the voice acting and text on the screen is in Czech. If you don’t like foreign mods then this will likely drive you crazy. I played the mod and it didn’t cause me any problems.

“Blocky” is certainly an adjective that comes to mind when you first start playing this mod but that’s only a few models, here and there.
Make sure you start in the training room if you enjoy VERY difficult jumps as this one definitely contains those! I nearly gave up but finally managed to finish it.
The Czech is a little off putting at first but you don’t really need to understand it as it’s obvious what you have to do.
There is a lot of creativity in the mod but some of it should have been removed.
The psychedelic section is kinda fun but perhaps a little too long.
All in all, this is a solid release.
I am only giving it a MAYBE partly because of the Czech, as I know if can annoy some people and partly because of the Training room and aforementioned psychedelic areas.
I enjoyed it and would definitely play anything else the modder released, but this might not be for everybody.
1 Hour, 35 Minutes
Yeah I remember to play this quite a long time ago, maybe around 2009 or 2010, and overall the feeling is quite funky and kind of psychedelic mod. But I have to say that back in those days I didn’t review any mod I played at all so I do this recommendation only with some glimpses I can recall, that in some way were brought back to life thanks to the screenshots in here.
Overall I remember it’s fun and out of the classic design for HL1 mods. Though this is evidently an eastern Europe mod, you find it quite interesting but pretty unique because is a weird mod, I remember the translate for “Blbej Den” means in Spanish “Día Tonto” or “Silly Day” In English.
In conclusion, I don’t think I’ll give this a RE-try, but I definitely recommend you to play it if you want to know how this mod is like, by yourself.
Crashed the computer around pic 61 area and it wouldn’t restart no matter what save was used. The following day it did start up and got most of the way through. it was just too blocky and crazy for me.
My first instinct is to call this mod a mixed bag, but that’s giving it a lot of leeway. The truth is, there’s just not much worthwhile about this mod.
You can tell by the screenshots that it’s not an attractive set of maps. The areas are very blocky, poorly lit, and have sprite and brush errors all over (that make them fullbright, for instance). The best part is the psychedelic sequence, which covers a couple of maps if I recall correctly. There is some weirdness here but touches of cleverness as well.
There is a decent amount of combat in Bad Day. Ammo is thankfully plentiful, and if you explore you’ll be handsomely rewarded with health, HEV power, ammo, and even new weapons that you might otherwise miss. I did especially like the challenge in getting the crossbow, which turned out to be a nicely intricate series of tasks/puzzles.
But then there are just poor decisions in the design. Spawning enemies in one area (including a boss gargantua), for example. I can’t fault the text or voices for being in a language I don’t speak, but the text often accompanies cutscenes which were unnecessary. But the one thing that bugs me the most (and admittedly it’s minor in the grand scheme) is that in one section I felt moderately clever for using the gauss gun to shoot through a door to shoot the explosive box behind it, which opened up a new pathway. But then later on (near the end), you’re facing a similar inaccessible room (with ammo clearly visible inside). The door is blocked with wood planks and a small crate. So as before, I shoot the gauss through the wall and destroy the wood planks and crate, which should have allowed me to open the door. However the mapper didn’t make this room accessible at all – either he didn’t think someone would use the gauss here to clear the obstruction, or he’s just an evil mapper to offer up something like ammo in a totally inaccessible room. Frustrating.
This pack isn’t a waste of time, since there are some interesting things going on. But in general it’s not worth your time either.
I am the author of this mod and today I released a fixed, improved and also English version of it (Lighting is a lot better now and the obvious glitches/mistakes like fullbright textures were fixed too). It is available now at moddb.com/mods/blbej-den (which can be considered the homepage of the mod). Btw I do not mind the mod being posted here, or anywhere else (quite the opposite, spread it :-).
I gave this a “maybe” since that’s what the other comments here say. Also take the time taken with a grain of salt, i could probably finish it in 20 minutes if I really wanted to, but the 45 minutes is about how long it takes when I just walk through the mod without hurrying (but of course I know where to go/what to do…)
Hi, thanks for stopping by. I will update the mod as soon as I can. I have removed your recommendation image because you are the author.
Sure, thanks for updating it.
An English version has been released some while ago. Please update the mod download.
