Dark Interval is a restoration/revision mod that lets you play Half-Life 2 as it could have been: with custom maps, new voiced dialogue, new models and textures, all based on Valve's early concepts. The mod is released in episodes, the most recent being Dark Interval: Part I - an intro chapter to the bigger story.

Time to update the screenshots section a little. Here are the new screenshots of the Canals map. The map development is nearly finished, only some tweaks are to be done — parts of ambient on the level, a couple of rooms, some loot. It takes some time since I'm pushing some new AI bits that are going to play part on the level, namely houndeyes. Not too new, are they? But they surely have evolved in the years past… as well as other lifeforms.
This level is set somewhere in the second quarter of the Canals chapter: Gordon already left the city through sewers, and is going to find the jetski later on. Meanwhile he must find his way through highly polluted, dangerous environment, both occupied by new harsh lifeforms and chopped by Combine outposts. The players have to learn to overcome lethal environment conditions and maximize their odds of survival, as the ground itself will wither them, and make them easy prey for enemies.
