Hello all, lead and solo-developer of Half Alone here. I am very pleased to announce that significant progress has been made on Half Alone, the movie-based mod that aims to give fans the game we never received. While the official games were very liberal with the source material, this mod aims to be very faithful.
To start us off, here are some new, custom props. The Michael Jordan train was created with great attention to detail. The image of MJ is actually split up into three 512x512 planes with additive textures, which creates a very high resolution image for Goldsrc. Michael Jordan and the record player mannequin are fully animated. Check out the brand new teaser video to see them in action! You will also notice in the piano, dresser, nutcrackers and small holiday tins in the background. I promise to deliver many more custom props and do not plan on using any models from the original game.
Buzz's BB Gun. The texture was created from a movie still. The BB Gun has shooting and reloading sounds straight from the film.
Kevin holding the BB Gun. Kevin is in his early stages and is constantly being tweaked. His scale has been altered to be appropriately sized based on his age in comparison to NPCs.
Firecrackers! I'll save these for later.
Firecrackers will cause enemy NPCs to run away, and are currently fully functional.
Buzz's tarantula. The limbs are fully animated.
Finally, we have a brick to throw, from HA2. When you throw the brick, the camera follows the brick as it spins through the air. The brick has the sound effects from the film. I will provide a video of this weapon very soon.
That is all for this post. Questions and feedback welcome. Be on the lookout for another large update within the next few weeks!
