Hello, Half-Life community. It's Hazard Team. We are still alive and we return to work! Over the years since release of Induction we got great feedback from you, HL fans. It was very surprising for us that this small mod could attract so much attentions. Actually we meet some surprises up to now. For example, recently we found out that well-known combineoverwiki uses screenshots from Induction in its article about Sector A Training Facility.
We abandoned Half-Life for years, but it seems, modifications and tools for this great game are still topical and developed. Also Valve ported Half-Life to new platforms and continue to update the game. All this inspires us to return to mod development. And we will start with Induction update.

So which changes do we plan for Induction?

  • Reworked maps. Every old map will contain new places and scripts.
  • At least one new map.
  • Small bug fixes.
  • Achievements and achievement system.
  • Linux support. We already built version for Debian, but it needs some tests.
  • Open git repository for storing sources of maps and code.

Thanks for attention. Watch for news.

Now you can dowload .map and .rad files of Induction's maps. You can use some prefabs, but don't forget to mention me in credits.

This mod in my opinion was terrible, Its only about 3-4 levels long and not even in english (My friend was a constant tranlator) It has nothing really exciting except the crystal...thing.... You only got the crowbar and you guys should REALLY work on the storyline, I guess when you met Eli for a breif least I think thats him was pretty cool, But I mean you have to meet alyx as she said in HL2 and work with something more trhan 3-4 levels, the mod should be ATLEAST 13 full long levels.

even if the game was english, the plot would still not be cannon. This is just some fans take on the stuff that happened before Half-Life. I think we should allow anyone to dream up their own version of it.

It was when I was thinking about a Half-Life movie that I kinda thought there had to be an introduction. It couldn't just start at the Black Mesa. I was thinking Gordon Freeman woke up at his home and then had to get to Black Mesa somehow.

One of the most boring mods ever made for HL. While the mod is daring to be something not based on action for a game that is action based, there is some room here for success depending on the ideas put forth. The gameplay is tiresome, there is one scene where we get to do one of those barney vs gordon competition to see who get inside and unlock a scientists door (gordon naturally taking a ventilation shaft) but the story seriously does not go anywhere. We are fed small snippets and have to do boring…
