This mod is an attempt to recreate the 2003 Beta style of Half Life 2. This project is similar to my previous work "Beta Aesthetics", but about a different era of development, which was in 2003. In my opinion, this era is very similar to what we could see in the release, but there are also some significant differences. The atmosphere of the 2003 era is more "dark" and "desaturated". Gray and white colors predominate, the sky is not blue, but mostly gloomy and gray. In city 17, you will no longer find bright orange and yellow houses, only the same type of black and white buildings. The coast looks like the bottom of a dry, almost dead sea. In general, the game with this mod looks more empty and depressing. When creating the mod, I used materials and textures from the leaked beta version of Half Life 2. Almost all the textures of the retail game have been reworked and replaced. There are not many changes in the sound design, but the biggest is the complete replacement of the Vortigaunts

I'm really starting to hate this site... this page was updated and thus moved to the top of the mod list... JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE ADDED A PICTURE OF NIKADO AVACADO!? The guy who uploaded the picture isn't even the actual dev of this ******* mod! The moderation of this site is a total joke. Make me an admin of this site and I will fix these problems. I'm so sick of just anyone being able to upload any ******** they please.
