Uh. How do I start this?

Let's just say if you're interested in my story, go on and read what I have to say, otherwise just skip this part; a brief (very brief) description of the mod (its story) follows below ;)

I'm a huge fan of the Half-Life series. I always loved playing videogames in general.
Once upon a time, videogame developers didn't give a f*ck about achieving "maximum graphics". Or, let's just say it wasn't their main priority.
The most important thing was to make an enjoyable experience for all gamers, an experience they would never forget. Think of Zelda (in my case, my favourite). Or Metal Gear? Aw, there are SO many examples. Games were made to be fun to play. They often were very hard to beat also, and when you didn't know where you were supposed to go now, or what object you were looking for, there was no internet to help you out. You just had to play the game and find out by yourself. When there was a boss that seemed impossible to beat, you just had to try over and over again; and boys... that feeling when you beat a boss you were trying to beat for almost a week; that feeling of -victory-..... PRICELESS!

But now, let's look at the present games: we have Call of Duty (releasing regularly a game once a month, err, I mean year, just to make money), and then we have Call of Duty rip-offs, and then there are other games. Nowadays only a very little amount of games are really, really "epic". There are, but they are starting to get very rare (there is still some hope left hahahah). I mean, first person shooters with autoaim, hints and mission objectives on the hud like for instance an arrow that always points in the right direction to go? What the f*ck?!
Half-Life (in general) is one of those games that I would consider a perfect first person shooter.
A very balanced and fair gameplay. This is very rare nowadays! So many times I beat a game last year without dying even once or having to search for a way out. Videogames started to be somehow too easy (or at least, that is how I felt).

So now the point is: ever since I played Half-Life for the first time, I was fascinated of the huge mod community and the support Valve was (and is) giving us for their games. It sure is incredible.
And since then, I always wanted to create a mod for myself. My own little creation. I didn't know much about modding or mapping or so back then (yeah, I screwed around with CryEngine 1 sandbox editor sometimes, but not so much). And now that the game industry seems to fall apart in most of the cases, I decided to start mapping and train myself for an upcoming project: a Half-Life 2 mod. After some years of using the Source SDK for various games (CSS, TF2, L4D2, and so on...), I finally got some mediocre skills at mapping. I was ready, and so I started mapping for a mod of which I didn't even know the title yet. I just knew that the mod had to have a hardcore-style gameplay, and it had to be hard to beat (not too hard, but not too easy either... a little bit of pressure sure doesn't hurt, so that you feel satisfied when you survive a fight).

So here I am now, finally done with my project. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it :)


tr1p tells the story of a guy who had a car accident while driving home from work after a 48h shift. He wakes up at night laying next to his crashed car in a place he doesn't seem to remember as a part of the route he usually takes to go home. Actually... he is now very, VERY far from home.

Will you survive and make it back to your home and family alive?


WARNING: This game is really difficult for some people to play (as I could notice from the first review of a youtuber), so you better be a hardcore gamer if you wanna finish it ;) otherwise I think you wouldn't enjoy it, as this mod really is almost unplayable.


This mod requires Half-Life 2: Episode Two to run.

The development of tr1p is finally done :D

I'm putting it in the download section here.

Don't forget that you need Half-Life 2: Episode 2 installed, and that you must have run it at least once since installation for this mod to work properly.

Remember also: this mod is all about gameplay :) so use your skills ;)

I really hope you enjoy my rather short hl2 mod and that it heals at least a super small part of the wounds you have from Half-Life 3 not coming out...

hi mate
just finished your mod and by eck that was different .. i awarded you a play it now on PP and it would of been a personal favourite but some of the mod seemed a bit dis-jointed and could of been so much better with minimal work .. infact in some places removing some npc,s would of improved the mod ( such as the final fight )
textures were good and mostly better polished than many other mods ....
sound and music were ok but the final battle would of been better with a more appropriate music score .. again this would of required little if any extra work but would of made the finale much better
overall a excellent mod mate and i look forward to playing more of your work .... cheers

If you don't have that folder you can create it. If you have steam installed you definitively have a steam folder, so you should be able to create the according folders in manually in case they aren't already there :)

You need Steam installed on your PC and a legally acquired copy of Half-Life 2: Episode Two.

Thanks for reply.
No, that's not for me, but if I'll have a chance I will play your mod certainly.
Very pitiful I can't play this right NOW because I love mods with horror-like "psychological" athmosphere...

Seriously? still not buying Half-Life games after all this time? You deserve not playing any mod.
