Among the fans of the series Half-Life there are many talented developers of modifications. But they think differently: while some are trying diligently to recreate the third episode of Half-Life 2 that was not seen on the basis of a scripted draft, others yearn for the inexpressible atmosphere of the very first part of the franchise. So, the craftsman, hiding under the nickname Sockman111, and a small team of his associates made the present modification of Half-Life 2 on the engine of the original.Among the fans of the series Half-Life there are many talented developers of modifications.

The developers have an incredible amount of work. While their offspring under the name Half-Life 2: Classic is at the earliest stage of development: the craftsmen managed to partially reproduce the first chapter of Half-Life 2. However, despite this, the amount of work done is impressive. As the authors themselves explain, they do not pursue any commercial goals and are engaged in the project exclusively for their own pleasure, and he was conceived for the love of both parts of the legendary shooter from Valve.

To further develop the mod team Sockman111’a needs the help of programmers. In addition, the authors count on the support of the community. In particular, they need the help of the community in deciding on the “understatement” of the graphic component of the project: the authors can not decide whether to use the original effects and low-quality textures of the first Half-Life, or to make a kind of visual “hybrid” of the first and second parts.

For obvious reasons, about the release date of a full-fledged “demake” Half-Life 2 is still unknown even to its authors. Now on the popular site Moddb posted a video with a demonstration of gameplay and a short demo version of Half-Life 2: Classic.
