Your name is Alex Johnes. You're one of scientists caught up in the Black Mesa disaster. After being trained in a special Black Mesa self-defense course three months ago, you're unwilling to accept the sure death as your destiny. You will neither let the troops catch you, nor will they wipe you out. Make your way. Find Gordon Freeman. He is the last hope that drives you traveling on...

Escape from the darkness is a single-player campaign for Half-Life1 and includes:

  • New 4 hour single-player campagin
  • Complete set of new weapons
  • New Enemies
  • Unique locations different to Black Mesa
  • New hazard course

We developed and released "Escape from the darkness" in 2005 as a free Half-Life expansion. It can be downloaded right here in the “downloads” section. Please make sure to download and apply the STEAM patch if you want to play the game on STEAM.

Unfortunately I lost all the source files during a hard-drive crash, so I am unable to fix some of the invisible walls / clipping issues in the maps, sorry for that.

Please make sure you frequently quick-save since the game will not auto-save for you! There are serious clipping issues. Try to duck-jump in case you get stuck. Thanks for everyone who has played our game!! <33

Make sure to also check out the "Escape from the Darkness - Remod" from ZikShadow, this remod improves on the core game and fixes some of the issues above.

This is one of the most 'maddening' Half-life mods I have ever 'attempted' to play through: In many ways it shows a lot of promise and -for the better and the worse- seems to be a very 'amateurly-made' mod. It has a lot of creativity and originality going for it.

Right off the bat, I was unable to destroy a silo door -with the tank- at the very beginning of this mod. I looked at a youtube 'walkthrough' and I realized I did nothing wrong. For some reason, hitting the silo door with tank guns did nothing, so I had to use a 'no-clip' cheat to get through the door. The polygon count of this mod is very low -- as a result, I got stuck in certain places where I shouldn't have -- had a difficult time manoevering to evade soldiers' gunfire when I had to.

Within the first 20 minutes I had to use youtube walkthrough several times to figure out where to go. There were far too many graphical and physical glitches. I finally within a short amount of time gave up on this mod, altogether....it many respects it looked like it could've been a pretty good 'amateur' mod with some improvement and corrections.....

I rate this mod a 3 out of 10.

I think 3 is a bit harsh, I think a number around 5 to 7 would be more fair.

Hey Re-synthesizer thanks for the review and great to see people still playing our mod!! Are you sure the tank did not work? Did you play the original version or a port?
