Well, halloo! You've read it correctly. Heath Games has been hard at work, and will continue that course - if only to bring you Half-Rats: Parasomnia by the middle of November! That's 2016, you dweebs! I love you guys...This time, the story/progression was well-planned out before being executed. I've just finished a blow-by-blow storyboard/screenplay of the game in its ENTIRETY. And, ohhh...sweet babe Jesus, are you people in for it! Parasomnia will feature tons of action, much better puzzles, but, at the same time be very cinematic and narrative-driven. There will be lots of dialogue/monologue/narration...that you won't be able to skip through. Bad news for you speedrunners...But there will also be Gatling guns you can rip off their mounts and go full Rambo with...and there will be a cat...WHOOPS, I've said too much! Heath Games resident voice actor, Devan Miller is all set to fill the shoes of many of the characters you'll encounter!

Aside from that, we've got some new features that are sure to turn some heads! Check it out, my friends!

Itemspara

Some of these you'll recognize, though they have gotten a face-lift...or generous plastic surgery, rather...Others are brand new. At this time, we are implementing a monetary system which will allow the player to purchase items...now where will these items go? Well, we're also working on an inventory system that can be used in real time! I have a HUD mock-up right here for you! Modeling and texturing by Alejandro "Foxtrop" Alonso and Half-Rats.

HUD

Half-Rats will be carrying a rather large pack upon his back...in modern words - a backpack. This is how the HUD will be set up. Items will be able to be carried with you after being picked up. They can be used at a later date. You're going to want the cocaine lozenges to give you a speed boost, since we are reducing the player's movement speed! Not as scary when you can outrun all the enemies is it? And in case you plan on ducking into a tight space to avoid an attack, we've tested out Osiris' monster ducking code...and yeah, it works very well...But don't worry, chums, there will be a few more weapons this go-round. Including a Henry Repeater. There will also be the ability to block and kick enemies back while the melee weapon is equipped! Fancy, huh? Sword fighting with demonic undead...how very adventurous! Of course, we've been working on mapping concurrently. Here's some beautiful scenery...

Asylum1

The small mining town of Asylum. You're safe here...

Church3

The high Church of Eminence! By Thanos.

Church

The interior of such a church! By Thanos.

Our goal here at Heath games is to scare the ever loving shit out of you and make you quake in yourn boots. I have some surprises here for you...Take a lookie!

Undead Child

Here's your new playmate! You freaky masochistic horror fans are gonna' love sharing play time with this thing! Modeling by Alejandro "Foxtrop" Alonso, texturing by Half-Rats.

And then there's this...aberration. What is it? That's for me to know and you to find out. I'm calling him "B-Boy" for now...

bboypromo

Yeahhh...He's really a nice man once you get to kill him...

Okay, all that good news above was to soften the sting of what's to come next. I've decided to nix the co-op and multiplayer aspect of HR:P to conserve time. I DO plan on releasing a co-op/multiplayer version in the future, however...But right now, we're putting full focus on a stunning single-player experience for everyone.

Thank you for your support, ModDb!

I find that everyone that plays this game LOVES it (including me!). Not just the gameplay but the mods that there is for it. I find that hl2 mods usually make me bored after a while and I usually play hl1 mods 999999 times after I already beat them. HL2 has better everything but it I find that it is tooo hard to model and map for hl2. You guys might love hl2 and say hl1 sux but if you think that hl1 sux UR GOIN TO HELL!!! (It's true!) I found hl2 was too short and valvE took too much out of it when they released it. (that's what everyone says!) If you watched the movies and trailers before they released hl2 you probably said WOW!!! But when they released iteveryone said hey! that sux man....
I just love hl1 and when it's forgotten, I will never forget it, EVER!! (If it's forgotten...)
You know, hl2: episode 2 looks too hard so I'm not gonna stay in touch into the hl2 episodes any more. People also say that it sucks and it's just a waste of money. If you like it, Like IT but I sure dont like it. Just HL1 is the only one that I like.

I looovvee half-life. I agree with all the good comments and 100% too! I do like half-life 2 aswell but half-life 1 has more mods and therefore much more gameplay! I also like the set out of some places in Black Mesa. As it looks as though it could be a school in some cases!

I still play this more than HL2 because of all the fantastic mods made for it.

HL2 simply doesn't have as much and most of HL2's are multiplayer only, HL1 has that and then a whole truck of single player ones too.

HL1 still mesmerizes me after all of these years and playthroughts. So i can easily say that it's the best game there is. I think that its very rare for a game to feel so interactive even novadays, if you know what i mean. In the firstlevels you can "freely" tease professors and security personnel and theil say something funny to you, or over cook their meals in a micro. Somehow the athmosphere is great even in a game this old. Its legendary. I dont think this game will be forgotten. At least i wont forget it. And how great is the fact that this game has spawned the greatest online shooters too , u know the Counter-Strike.

HL1 is exactly what Warren Spector once said about it: "The best game on rails ever made".
Still true today.

Run. Think. Shoot. Live.In Half-Life, players assume the role of the protagonist, Dr. Gordon Freeman, a recent MIT graduate in theoretical physics, and also a recent employee at Black Mesa. After an experiment that goes horribly awry when an unexpected Resonance Cascade (an apparently completely fictitious occurrence) rips dimensional seams that devastate the facility, Gordon must fight to escape the now alien-infested facility as creatures from another world — known as Xen — subsequently enter…
