Raising the Bar is a mod based off of the idea of amalgamating the earliest concepts of Half-Life 2 into a coherent story. This mod is not a leak-fix, nor is it a concept art recreation gallery; it will be a full story with inspiration from the old material as well as our own ideas of how to make it all fit together.

Looks intriguing, all I'd suggest is to put some support or bridges under rail tracks like IRL. They are suspended in mid-air here)

They are supported by the "floor" on original concept, you can't see any support apart, but i'm thinking include something like that.

I like the teaser, but I don't like the light of some parts of the maps. (I know that it's maybe wip and based on original concepts.)

Nice. I recommend you work on the visuals for the mod. Make them better and I will love this mod.

Great trailer overall, however, some environments look unfinished. The manhack arcade (the 3rd map I think) could use a serious re-visit, but the other maps really give me that hl2 feel, gj! Keep it up.

This is very promising already. I'm thrilled!

A thought came up as I saw the Quarry and the final shot of the Train station.. With the mod being based on the oldest HL2 concept and thus having not much of a finished reference to look up to, there can be maintained a level of artistic freedom and potential for some original choices in terms of map design and scene scripting.

I mean, you obviously did some of that with the Train station and with excellent result, but I'm kind of hoping to see what you guys can do with the other, less-explored, less-functional maps that were cut early on or even the ones that were never built.

You guys rock. I agree with some of the criticisms already posted, so I won't repeat them, but best of luck!!!

I can't wait to see how much is done this year! Some other mods like Black Mesa take several years to finish, so don't feel the need to rush!
