Your name is Alex Johnes. You're one of scientists caught up in the Black Mesa disaster. After being trained in a special Black Mesa self-defense course three months ago, you're unwilling to accept the sure death as your destiny. You will neither let the troops catch you, nor will they wipe you out. Make your way. Find Gordon Freeman. He is the last hope that drives you traveling on...

Escape from the darkness is a single-player campaign for Half-Life1 and includes:

  • Brand new 4 hour single-player campagin
  • Full set of new weapons
  • New Enemies
  • Unique locations
  • New hazard course

I developed and released "Escape from the darkness" in 2005 and the game is completly free. It can be downloaded right here in the “downloads” section. Please make sure to download and apply the STEAM patch if you want to play the game on STEAM.

Unfortunately I lost all the source files during a hard-drive crash, so I am unable to fix some of the invisible walls / clipping issues in the maps, sorry for that.

Please make sure you frequently quick-save since the game will not auto-save for you! There are some clipping issues. Try to duck-jump in case you get stuck. However none of the bugs should prevent you from completing the game.


For any feedback, feel free to contact me via:

Warm regards,
Dieblein

Great mod, but you need a comp thats better than mine. Maps are brilliant and good gameplay + weapons.

Also, i got stuck after several map changes (eg, in wall, small hill) but maybe thats just my comp.

The maps in this mod are some of the most butifull I have ever seen made with the Half-life Engain. Maps quility aside the game play is lacking, easy, and repetivie. And with a non-excited plot this mod gives little to think about. The orig mod that half the mod is based on (Dark Force) is much better. Play Darkforce, then if you liked Darkforce try this one. its still worth playing, just play it on Hard.

The mod has some things going for it, the custom weapons, custom grunts with desert camo, and one that had a sugegasa (bamboo hat), custom snow grunts and some unique locals. But unfortunately its not enough to save it from the invisible wall syndrome. Many places that seem like you can go, you can't... alot of the time for no real reason. Like when you go down a stair way thats broken on the end, you can't even jump to your death. A place where there was a a fairly large broken hole in the wall…
