Welcome to Half Life 2, The Beginning. A mod by The Evil Shadow Gaming Development team. Here is some more info on the mod

STORY: You're Aleksey Bogdanovich, a soldier in the 106th Guards Airborne Division in Russia. The United States and Russia have been in a war for 3 years. You've been sent on a mission with 8 other soldiers to check on a disturbance in the wilderness around Tula. Before you know it, you were hit by something that fell out of the sky. Your helicopter is going down. You hear the pilot say, "Mayday, Mayday Альфа(Alpha)-32 is going down.", and then, you crash. You wake up, and find out that you are the only survivor in the helicopter crash, but your not alone...

FEATURES:
-New Weapons, Ranging from modern military firearms, to classic combine weapons, and combat shovels. Yes, combat shovels.

-New Lines of Dialogues, The protaganist will now react to the world around him, no more characters that pretend they are one of those "Deaf mutes"

-A story that will take you across the world, see The Seven hour war on multiple fronts across the globe, and learn about one man's tale to send as many Combine bastards back to the portals from which they came.

-Vicious Combine Vs. Russia multiplayer action, take up arms against your friends, neighbors, and the weird person you met at the bar last night.

JOBS: We are currently looking for a texture artist and an animator to join our team, take a look at the jobs tab for more information.

RELEASE DATE: When we feel like it, but we will have a demo soon.

Revival.

News 1 comment

Hello everyone, we are trying to revive this mod. As you can tell from the comments, I am part of the development team. This mod has a lot of potential, and can be finished if we can get the team. We have a possible coder + Modeler, some concept artists, and voice actors. We will need all the help we can get. If you are interested in working with us (Mind you, for free, but you will get early access to the mod) Contact me on Skype @ Drake33232!

Well, maybe if Tybama didn't become such a douche now, this would still be alive, eh?

If this is the seven hour war, remember that combine soldiers didnt exist yet..Just a shitload of synths the combine brang in.

Combine synths and striders are among the enemies that you'll likely be facing the most in the game, but because we don't really know how the war unfolded beyond the bulletpoints, we have a bit of creative freedom. And no one is saying that the game has to be over as soon as the 7 hour war is over...

We are aware of that, right now any combine soldiers you see are just place holders for when we get a synth npc functioning

Not even going to bother trying this.

I'm sure it's a great mod, but every time someone does a "Russia is at war with the US" I just sigh and roll my eyes.

It was an amusing concept about 20 years ago when things were still bad between the two countries, but now it's just getting tedious. You'd think making a mod with the title "Half-Life" behind it, would somehow inspire some originality.

That doesn't seem to be what's happening here.

Nothing in the story is final at this point - the war with the US is more of a backdrop than anything else - you're not going to be fighting US soldiers at any point in the currently planned game. It's more of an explanation of who you are, and why you are where you are when things start getting bad. By the time the mod is finished, it's entirely possible we'll drop that all together.

I see what you mean, you don't actually fight the U.S., Just some backstory. I guess its a matter of opinion

мне он самому непонятен , они вроде как мутят 7ми часовую войну со стороны России и в тоже время добавляют море всякой клюквы , вроде того что там война с Америкой и что Россия это новый СССР....
