Well, no fear! I've sent off what would nearly equate to a finished mod to Qwertyus for Quality Assurance. We've been working together to make sure that Half-Rats: A Fever dream is as perfect as it can be. With some model-hacking and some cleanup, Qwertyus was able to make the weapons and ammunition much more fitting - he has also been hard at work making subtitles for the more important speech in the game, and we've been polishing up any remaining bugs and exploits that were found by my beta testers. Thanos did some pretty extensive testing and compiled several, equally comprehensive reports as well.

We even worked on implementing a new player model in case the player accidentally sees themselves at any point in the game. I take full responsibility for the model looking ridiculous. Yes, that is my actual face with a cigarette hanging from my mouth - yes, it has been horrendously distorted/contorted - and other words ending in "orted" - in comparison to my original handsome countenance. And yes, the top hat is offensively large. But that's where I keep my booze, you see. This model was adapted from the Will Smith Wild Wild West player model.

This is the part where I thank everyone again for sticking with me, my beta testers, and Qwertyus for forcing me to stay on task when I wanted to push this mod out the door prematurely, and of course, YOU, my fans, my followers - You're a crazy, hilarious group of folks - and I hope you take the Half-Rats message to heart.

ModDb, if you can find it in your hearts to feature this mod in your Halloween "Must Play" list, I would be forever grateful!

I have been thinking on an early release, but at the moment I am on the fence. The last of the subtitles and fixes are being implemented soon, and before you know it, HRAFD in its finished glory, will be sitting here, waiting for the floodgates to open on midnight, October 31st.

Good news for mobile users. I believe HRAFD will be available for mobile users as well!

Before I bid you adieu, Half-Rats: Parasomnia has been tramping along, and pushing forward and has recently just got a story update! Here's the proof of the former. This is Foxtrop's modeling work, with texture done by yours truly.


Finally got this horrid thing finished! It's the Teddyboy as nature intended it to be. Just wait until you see the Pullduck, though. As one user said, "Say goodbye to your ankles."

Half-Life 1 was good but the best thing about it was it basically started the modding community. :)

Half-life 1 is based off of the "modified" Quake 1 engine

Half-life 2 is based off the Source Engine which valve MADE.

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…
