German artist Aram Bartholl describes the role of the crate in first person shooters as ’a generic, duplicatable and locationless object.’ Indeed, it is a common trait of modern gaming to lazily use such generic objects to fill space, create obstacles and provide cover from opposing forces. Half-Life: Crate edition pokes fun at the status quo and offers a light-hearted revamp of one of the genre’s most beloved examples. Almost all of the textures in the 1998 classic have been replaced with various low resolution crate textures. The result is both humorous and disorientating.

There is a bhop cap and the game starts at "We've Got Hostiles!" I hope this isn't the final release. I would love to see a version of this built off of the WON dlls so that we can bhop. Also, I hope that we can see the full game with crates from c1a0.

Looked pretty stupid when I was scrolling around the Half-Life Mods, but then I watched a video and looked and some of the pictures. It does look pretty fun and funny
