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!

Beast

for Half-Life

Your problem: a gonarch. But direct confrontation is not an option. This interesting set of 7 maps lets you puzzle and fight through your mission to make it out alive with the trapped scientist.

The goal is to destroy a monster (Big Momma/Gonarch). Mission is complete if you escape on the train with the scientist alive.

Cosmonaut

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

You play as a cosmonaut who has had to abandon their space station, but upon arriving back on earth, discover that the place has been overrun by the combine. What happens next? Do you give in to the Combine army, or do you resist and use your skills to find some way of escaping?

Cosmonaut is Dolmo’s greatly expanded and polished version of his entry of the same name for last year’s NostalgiaVille mapping challenge.

DoomEd

for Half-Life 2

DoomEd is a single-player first person shooter learning game that combines science and history with FPS action, taking players through the horror of bio-terrorism and WWII chemical experimentation gone wrong.

The backstory mixes factual content (the WW2 experiments at Porton Down, Chemical Defence Experimental Station, ‘urban exploration’ in disused London underground stations) with fiction and fantasy (a lost labyrinth populated with human mutants and military personnel who believe the war is still going on).

The action is set in the labyrinth of lost London underground stations and tunnels that have not been in operation for over fifty years. The game follows the conventions of FPS gameplay – interweaving between orientation/exploration and action/warfare with mutants but replacing puzzles with science-based problems and puzzles, drawing on appropriate aspects of the KS4 science curriculum.

Frozen Ice

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

A little while ago, I posted an unofficial weekend challenge. The theme was 3 states of matter: Solid, Liquid and Gas.

The idea was to try to encourage clever and interesting use of those ideas to create puzzles and situations for the player to face.

Unfortunately, only one person sent a map in and this is it.

It’s very short but offers some simple puzzles.

Hobo Adventure

for Half-Life 2

It’s tough living on the streets.

Fights, halucinations, finding somewhere safe to sleep.

Can you find and get the TV to enter the bar?

You’ll need to be pretty street-smart to do it.
