Don't Drink the Water is a HL1 mod taking inspiration from the HL2 Beta's setting combined with old-school Resident Evil type of camera, trying to present the player with an interpretation of the Beta's concepts under a different lens.

In one week you'll finally catch the train to leave the city for your loved one. Sounds like a short time, but City 14 is a place of bizarre circumstances, random bouts of forgetfulness, and strangely-tasting water. Try to keep your sanity till the end of the week, and you just might make it. Follow your contacts' advice- don't drink the water.

We are proud to announce that the Storage Area 5163 has been rebuilt, increasing its capacity by 52.6%. As not all security devices have been installed in the new areas, we will temporarily increase the ammount of Overwatch personell for your security.

(It's time for an introductory/tutorial level to be created! As the atypical camera of this mod tends to confuse players, a need for a level that slowly reels players in into it is clear)
(A storage area will be great to limit the players movement options, making it clearer to follow, while showing off some additional oppressive scale!)
(A kind soul has also offered to potentially voice act :D. If I'm fast enough with finishing this level, they may not run away/lose interest xD)

Rest be assured, these scribblings are not of a madman...yet.

The Consul thanks you yet again for your patience and promises to keep working for Humanity's betterment.

Through Endless Possibilities, with the Combine.

Hello! I saw this mod recently and I wanted to see if i could participate in voice acting as either a gasmask citizen or something in this game. Here's a voice clip I made an hour ago Drive.google.com I hope it's nice!

Hi, the most current version is always the one at the top (in this case it would be the "Don't Drink the Water (Day 1, 5th Update, *LATEST BUILD*)")- once you download the zip file, extract it in your Half-Life directory (I don't know where you've installed your Steam folder, but the path will end in steamapps\common\Half-Life).

I don't know about anyone else, but Half Life cant seem to find client.dll even though it exists. How do I fix this?

Hey there!
I tried to look for a fix for this, and it seems this is a problem caused by not having the files cg.dll and cgGL.dll in your Half-Life folder (example directory: [Disk Name]//Program Files (x86)/Steam/common/Half-Life). This error seems to crop up for certain people on certain mods.

These files can be downloaded off the interwebs (not putting in any links here, just in case xd)- let me know if this will solve your problem, you may not be the only one with said error!

Sorry, but it's stupidest idea to force player to push a box for several levels, considering how weird are character controls from 3rd person view in HL. Try to come up with something better, than this.
