Caught by the remaining Combine, Gordon Freeman must escape to rescue his imprisoned rebel allies. Aided by the resourceful Dawn and her insurgents, you are sprung from captivity in order to spearhead a staged breakout from the notorious Port Halen Prison. But before you can get there you must loose your Combine pursuers and make your way through a wilderness long since overrun by the zombified.
Welcome to the hour of Dawn… Written, designed, and developed by Rage Crew, based on Valve’s excellent design.

Half Life 2: Dawn was developed as a student project on the IT-University of Copenhagen in 2006. It took us, a group of five game and level designers, around two months to get it all together, bringing you around one hour of game play. Enjoy!

We have great ideas for this project, we want to make the longest possible to make the experience unforgettable gaming experience. The plot of the story was written with passion by us, real fans of horror. Will be thrown inside the 'chilling atmosphere of Blackwood Manor from the very first minute of the game.
If you're a fan of Resident Evil and Silent Hill, you have found bread for your teeth.
We will keep you updated regularly on the development of the game and on the news and much more.

I love this mod. It feels like one of the classic gems in the HL2 modding community, 8/10.

I was able to play without the tweak and had no "crash" issues. Well done, thanks!

Aside from a small glitch noted before -- WOW! What a mod! Loved the farmyard map, quite refreshing and innovative, especially that one bit I had a problem with -- quite a clever setup. The hospital bit was quite tense and scary!

Agree with some others though: far too short! Quite an abrupt ending, but the slo-mo bit was a nice touch! Man, and you just get the .357 and M4! Think I'll go back and see if I can take out all the goons.

Excellent work though, and I really really would like to see more of this!

Enjoying this quite a bit, but stuck in the farmyard. Looks like dead barrels which should explode to open up a building and a possible entry to underground. Nothing happens. Having some fun jumping the fence though and getting out into the Forbidden Zone!

PS - looked up a video walkthrough on Youtube. Looks like the ramp should be burning and a haybale ready to roll. I got neither. Hmm.

Problem solved, kind of. Played through this bit and into the next map a couple times over. I suspect the problem lies with saves. When I played straight through without saving I got to the scene exactly as it should have been, but with one save I had the ramp burning but no hay! Good luck to anyone who has had the same problem.
