Dark Interval is a restoration/revision mod that lets you play Half-Life 2 as it could have been: with custom maps, new voiced dialogue, new models and textures, all based on Valve's early concepts. The mod is released in episodes, the most recent being Dark Interval: Part I - an intro chapter to the bigger story.

As of date, this is the most complete and well-done take on the old storyline. In addition, despite being the beginning of the game, there is plenty to offer in terms of gameplay. I'm definitely looking forward to the next chapters

Missing Information can suck it hard.

This is without doubt going to be the Best Half-Life 2 Beta Recreation ever! :D

Best "Beta" mod I have ever played. Perfectly captures the feeling of some of the best and ost completely beta sections and presents itself in an incredibly polished package. Just change the voice actor for the vortigants please.

A very good Beta recreation.
A bit slow in the demo, but honestly I still enjoyed it.

It's ok. My only problem is that maps are hard to navigate around, most of the time the least obvious path turns out to be the one you have to take, while a lot of other corridors/streets/etc. eventually lead to a dead end. It wouldn't be so annoying if it wasn't for the player's moving speed.
At one point in the sewers I ended up stuck for a couple of minutes, first because a vortigaunt that followed me run into a dead end after me and couldn't leave. Then I was searching for the exit, which was hidden in the ceiling in one of the (supposed) side areas.
Surprisingly I didn't have a lot of serious problems with it, fighting a poison zombie using only a stunstick was ok, there were not many loading sreens, but near the end i got stuck in the wall, also in the appartment you can follow the staircase to the point where you end up pretty much outside the map.
My advise: for next chapter try making maps smaller, or give us the HEV suit already ;)

Congratulations on the release! :)

Perfectly captures the atmosphere pictured in early HL2 in a beautiful way, the terminal & the trainstation had to be my favorite areas. I enjoyed the puzzles aswell, how the solution isn't always obvious, it makes the player search around for ways to solve them. Looking forward to future releases!

Amazing mod that captures the feel of the leak while adding several new features, including a playable manhack arcade.

Loved every second spent on it, this is a professional work. Eye candy from start to finish, almost all new enviroment, npcs, dialogues.. Can't wait to see next chapters. This must have a Steam page for me, as a pay-mod. Congrats !

The best Half-Life 2 Beta Mod yet. Eat your heart out, Missing Information. Combine content from the WC-Mappack, the Laidlaw's oldest known story from HL2 Beta and add a man who has worked with the Source Engine and its leaked variant for over a decade, and you get Dark Interval. Even with only 1 part available, it's still amazing and I can't wait for the future parts to be finished! The dark and haunting melodic atmosphere is beautiful and sometimes makes me lost, looking around the scenery and taking it all in. It legitimately feels like a lost Half-Life game from 2003 that was polished up for the present day. Play it, you will NOT regret it.
