Story: You are Jim, a bicycle courier who was in a crash and was put in a coma. Meanwhile, a group of animal rights activists release infected chimpanzees from the Cambridge research facility in Manchester, because of this the virus spread across Manchester but because of all the fires that broke down during the outbreak, the infected ran away into different cities in England and decimated England in a matter of weeks. The military blockades were overrun and when they tried to evacuate the cities it was already too late, the infection was everywhere. Now there's no government, no police, no army, no tv, no radio, no electricity. Then, 28 days later after the initial outbreak Jim wakes up from a coma and slowly finds out what's going on. Jim then goes on a quest to find his parents.

This mod is based on the horror/zombie movie 28 Days Later. The mod will have same locations, weapons, soundtrack and some key story elements as the movie. In this mod, guns and ammo are minimal, you will only find them a few times in the mod so most of the time you will either have to kill the infected with melee weapons, or you will have to run away from them. You won't find many survivors either. The damage in the mod is more realistic, infected and other enemies die from just a few bullets but so do you. The mod is also sort of a small open world, you can follow the story and advance or you can explore and scavenge buildings for supplies. The mod will not recreate the whole 28 days later movie in goldsource as that would be near impossible. I'm aiming to release a demo in the end of 2021.

Release date of the mod: 1.11.2022 (20th anniversary day of the 28 days later movie)

Dude awsome movie!!! So scary. Cousin Ray loves this movie..If I got o Arcansas, US again Im showing him this mod!!! He's 48 and LOVES Zombie mod

Great! So good to see this Classic (personally think its the best Zomb/infected movie to date) being made into an ep for Half life. The work on the church window ++. If your taking ideas; (lol) then I didnt see you climb a large staircase to a upper floor apartment building in the showcase video (hint, hint!) or loot a convenience store. All the best for the future, keep stocked up on those energy drinks or quality coffee, whatever your preference to get this complete.
