After 2 months of hard work, we're proud to be announcing the development of Half-Life 2: Classic. This has been an idea that many people in the Half-Life community have wanted to see, and now we have the first chapter practically done.
We're a small team of 5 people, and and we've been doing this all in our free time. The reason we wanted to announce this before we were finished was because we're in desperate need of people, especially programmers and modelers. If you have any experience with either of these, contact me here, explaining your experience.
You might be aware that this has already been attempted already, but none of these have actually panned out. With Half-Life 2 Classic, we hope to communicate more with the community, so that even if we don't manage to recreate the whole game, we can still release a substantial part of it, which can be continued by someone else in the future.
Anyway, feel free to play through the demo and give us your suggestions. We're still debating if we should stick close to Half-Life 2's graphics, or if we should downgrade them on purpose, and if so, how much. We may even make optional high-res models for the hd model pack, while keeping the base game's models low-res. But it depends on what most people want.
We hope you enjoy :)
