Crates and Barrels is a single-player "minigame" mod for Half-Life 2. It is a unique mod for several reasons, most notably for what it is not: it isn't a shooter (first or third person) - it isn't an RPG, strategy, or adventure game - and it doesn't use the Source game engine. What it is, though, is a collection of mini-games which use the Half-Life 2 characters, objects, and textures in several simple and classic video games that are intended for a few moments of comic relief. Written entirely in Visual Basic 2008 and using Managed DirectX 1.1, it is a first for Half-Life 2 mods. You will need Half-Life 2 installed in order to play this mod, as all game content is loaded as needed during gameplay from the Half-Life 2 GCF files.
Well, here it is - the first release of another one of my mods. Unlike with my prior mods Todesangst and T2DEF, though, I have the opportunity to release a Beta version and get feedback from players to improve it. My prior two mods were single player story-based mods so once you had played through them, there was little desire to play them again.
Anyway, this Beta contains the six games I mentioned in my last news update. They are all fully functional and I am not aware of any serious deficiencies in the mod. Nevertheless, there will probably be problems and bugs, so please visit the forum link above and post feedback on anything you find wrong (or find right, for that matter, too).
