About Half-Life : Echoes with 16 comments by MrGnang on Jun 17th, 2014

Wow.

I am honestly overwhelmed by the response I have had since I first announced this mod. This is the first time I have attempted to create something like this and the feedback has been incredible. It's great to see everyone enthusiastic about this, I have been creating this to purely entertain people and I hope I can deliver on that front!

Progress is very good, I am soon to finish chapter 3. As with anything creative, you soon start to release what is possible from the initial grand plan and have to trim back the layers until something feasible is left behind. I initially thought this would be 8-10 maps. I am currently on 12, and have four chapters to go! I also have been going back and retooling and editing previous areas, so previously released screenshots will differ in the end!

I may possibly split the campaign up into separate releases as a result, but I will see. I would love to share what I have made so far. It has been a lot of work, but you guys make it worth while :)

Here are some screenshots of the current status of the third chapter! Deep, dark and underground. Guess I've been playing too many horror games recently! Don't worry, you will make your way topside soon enough.

Thanks everyone, you rock :)

erm actually half-life is based off Quake1 and plus valve confirmed it themselves

Collective.valve-erc.com

Also if you look deep in the code, you'll see TE_EXPLOSION, TE_TAREXPLOSION, TE_LAVASPLASH still in there. Quake2 didn't have any of these, so it's clear that it's Q1 based.

Your wrong. If anyone has everyread the history of HL 1, you would know that it used the quake 1 engine.

Anyways, this game is the best and will always be my favorite game(other than HL2).

Without Quake 1 (yes it does suck, but Quake 2 pwnz HL and Quake 1) there would be no HL.
