The Legend of Gordon is a modification for Half Life 2. It is not a total conversion as it does take place within the Half Life universe. The mod takes place after the events of Half Life 2: Episode 2 (sort of my take on what happens afterwards). This mod is heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda, so in essence I'm taking elements from two great games and putting them in to one package. This mod aims to create a unique atmosphere while not necessarily going crazy on the visualizations. I am the kind of person that cares much more about gameplay above anything else, so my aim is to make this game fun, challenging, while at the same time balanced and easy to learn for those who have never picked up an FPS before. The game does NOT contain spoilers of Episode 2 and does NOT require you to have episode 2 to play so don't worry! You can understand nothing about Half Life 2 and still have a good time. So relax and check out some of the media!

Remember back in the days of Nintendo when we used to play games like Mario, Star Fox, and of course the amazing Legend of Zelda? Go ahead about 5 years later and we're introduced to a revolutionary First Person Shooter entitled Half Life 2... I want you to go and take a look at metacritic and tell me what the #1 Ranked game of all time is on the PC. You won't be surprised to find that Half Life 2 owns that spot with a score of 96. Again take a look at the charts and let me know what's the #1 ranked Nintendo 64 game is of all time. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time holds the fort with an almost perfect score of a 99. While users may not particularly agree with these scores, I think it's safe to say both Half Life 2 and Legend of Zelda are two of the greatest games of all time. This is why I will be taking both of these games and fusing them into one.
The Legend of Gordon takes place a little while after the events of Half Life 2 Episode 2... (No Spoilers here) Gordon Freeman goes on his own to explore north of White Forest and reaches a destination (unnamed as of now). His quest begins as he explores the Forest Temple, and after that... well... that's still in the works!
While the general plot of this game has been though up already, the details have not been ironed out quite yet, but we have a small group of minds constantly working towards the goal of making a perfect combination of Puzzle and Action brought to everyone's computer via the Source Engine.
So come on down and check out Legend of Gordon, while there are only a few teaser screenshots available currently, I will be making it a point to update the page on a daily basis.
Let me know what you guys think!

A sweet level design but the HL2 universe is getting boring...

It's mostly getting boring because of how linear the game itself is, or maybe the textures. Unfortunately I am a team of one, making it difficult to create a lot of new content. I would appreciate it if you checked the mod out anyway!

Looks crazy (in a good way) but I think you can freely cut the Half-life universe around it. It would be a bit pointless squeezing ghosts and other supernatural things in there and as you said you want it to take place after Episode 2 but won't contain spoilers, so there is no point taking it in the HL universe. You can think of something like G-man occidentally put him in a parallel universe, etc.

I was never honestly too good with making a story line for a game. I know it's gonna be weird to have new enemies like the ones I have listed because they are not in the standard Half Life series, but I wanted to make the game fresh you know? Not just keep the same old enemies you saw in the previous games. With that said, I'll leave the storyline for later and I'm mostly focusing on gameplay aspects right now but I will definitely be taking feedback from people like you to help me out with the actual story! Thanks for the feedback! :)
