Original 1997 alpha.
All comments regarding the stolen content have been deleted :(
Reported this pointless download!
How can you call yourself a Half-Life fan? I assume that you are strongly against the original Half-Life Alpha being available to the public or maybe you didn't even bother to notice that this actually is the original Alpha. So technically (from what you're saying), all half-life alpha and beta content is "stolen" and we should just sit around and watch this historical monument go down in flames.

Boo put this back up
Nothing much to see. Die hard fans might appreciate it. It still has the Quake 2 interface. Graphics are pretty bad if u dont have the proper driver in the proper folder(opengl32.dll or glide2xx or glide3xx files depending on the video mode).
U wont see anything spectacular other than a nig robot which has pretty good dance moves and some shiny parts :)
It's quake 1 not 2
WRONG. Type into the console "map c1a1".
I Think Gabe Bought Quake engine ! :D
Another piece of crap,but probably started the hi-graphic era for games.
I searched for this a lot i will give it a try finally :D
Is their any requirements for this mod?
It's a standalone alpha of Half-Life, and if you can run Quake 1 smoothly, this will run just as smoothly.
IS QUAKEWORLD ENGINE SO STOP SAYNG IS QUAKE 1 OR 2
Nope, old Goldsource. NOT QUAKEWORLD.
Even if the HL alpha runs in goldsrc AKA quake 1 engine it brings memories, because I played it! Big big thanks to legodood2!
i still play this and I think back how much has changed in the development. I may not have been around during the development, but still. also, this has a lot of cool stuffs that were cut. its too bad some of the cool enemies, (panthereye) levels, (security complex, alien research lab, ect) and characters (Ivan the Space Biker) were cut. :( at least we still have hl sdk with stuff in it! :D
WHAT ARE THESE SDK SECRETS YOU SPEAK OF, AND HOW CAN I FIND THEM?
so I know I'm almost a solid 4 years late to reply, but if you have Half-Life on Steam, install the Half-Life SDK. Monster Models and Weapon Models have some interesting goodies to find.
WTF RELEASED 1997???
F.Y.I. 1997 was the year this alpha version of Half-Life was produced.
Original alpha version?
