July the fourteenth, 1883:
Being rather rudely awakened after a night of drunken revelry; Half-Rats is thrust into a rather dire situation. Utter calamity has erupted in the streets outside of the general store which he calls home - calamity of the most unnatural and horrific kind, that is. Now he and the shop keeper, Mr. Trask, must hold out against this infernal host of creatures together. Will they survive the night?
The first in the "Half-Rats" series. The game begins at the general store where you and Mr. Trask, your landlord and shop-keep must make a stand against a great horror whose origins will only be revealed at the close of this story. Though it is a general store, that does not mean it boasts unlimited resources...supplies and manpower will begin to run thin - and you'll need to face hell to go out and gather them. You may end up meeting a fresh face or two during the night's journey - try and keep them alive and kicking, yeah? Some of them could become great assets.
Estimated playtime on Medium difficulty: 1 Hour 20 minutes.
Gameplay features (By type):
Rail shooter - Boats and Trains perhaps?
Arena (Run 'n Gun)
Escape (i.e.: Shit your pants running and evading - all while trying not to slip on what drops out of your trouser legs.)
This mod is for Half-Life - and is powered by the Goldsrc engine.
Over 3000 people have Half-Ratted, and will NOT be eaten by cats.
My goal for this singleplayer mod is to evoke the essence some of my favorite and YOUR favorite mods - mods that shaped my childhood for the worse...I want to scare the shit out of you this Halloween (Maybe, hopefully). Just like They Hunger did to me all those years ago. This is me...getting back to my roots. Don't expect a groundbreaking, breathtaking mod and excessive tons of custom content - just good fun! This mod will be very short, but hopefully sweet. Something to do before or after you go trick-or-treating, go to a party, or something to enjoy if you're by yourself with a bottle of your favorite spirits. I also would like to use this mod as a way to debut the Half-Rats universe and introduce you to the thing that ties all of this together - my musical project, "Ague" and my backstory. I eventually plan on taking this to the next level - a franchise that will immerse players in an engaging world and inspire them. All the while introducing them to the wondrous mode of another day - wrapped up in a multimedia experience with a protagonist you can reach out to in the real world. And in case you need assurance, that's right, you'll be playing as me...try not to rough me up too badly.
My god, I am flabbergasted at the amount of attention this has been getting. I thank you all for your continued interest and support. Thank you, Moddb for featuring my mod! You've helped make some dreams come true today. Thank you, watchers!
This is a man being eaten by cats. If you don't download this mod, the above will happen to you, and you won't very much like it.
Here it is! After many months of hype - the full version is out and available for download!

You'd be forgiven for not thinking too highly of this mod at a first impression. The mod stars the developer himself, as voiced by himself, with a mod page full of promises, alcohol references, and "Half-Pun: The Game" being the title card. These are traits that I have seen in earlier okey-to-awful half-life mods, but as a amalgamation of all of it, Half-Rats manages to be something different. Rather amazing, in fact. The mod drenches you in atmosphere as soon as you get to the start menu. From…
