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

Dark Interval offers a convincingly grim alternate HL2 world (the beta story).

Some thoughts:
- Have a couple different Breen speeches play, not just the one about instinct over and over again.
- You need to find a new voice for the vortiguants. Sorry.
- The outside areas are beautiful (in a dystopian way) but some inside areas, particularly tunnels, look too geometric, simple, and clean.
- Put some kind of particle effect inside the telepod? Now it's hard to tell what's causing the player to teleport.

Although i's not perfect, I have great faith in the future of this mod.

Dark Interval feels like a completely new game. Amazing atmosphere. The attention to the details is top notch.

Compared to initial demo release, the new version has a lot of improvements. The main and biggest improvements are choreographed scenes, proper introduction sequence and some nice gameplay similiar to Valve's style.

What makes this mod stand out is that besides using Valve's scrapped storyline and concepts the rest in Dark Interval is completely new content never seen in other Beta mods before.

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!

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 !

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