My name is John Dalton. I have been fighting in the biggest war mankind has ever seen. And that is all I know. They tell me that my parents are dead. They tell me that they found me in a graveyard, disfigured, mutlilated, and clinging to life. I should have been dead, they say. I would have been better off dead. But they brought me here. They kept me alive. And this is why I fight. I can't remember ever holding a gun in my life. But from the moment they handed me one, it felt right. I knew that this is what I was meant to do. I was a born killer - and killing is what I did best. For months on end, we fought them. We single handedly held off the uprising, and I spearheaded every attack, somehow escaping every battle unscathed. But now, something is wrong. Even in the most unlikely of hiding places, the Combine are finding us. Our numbers are slowly decimating. And... things have been disturbing me. Dreams. Nightmares, in fact. Of places that I've never seen in my life, but seem...

It is with a heavy heart that today we announce that NightFall will not continue development. While we have been pushing for a release for nearly 6 months now, the team has unfortunately lacked the drive, motivation and dedication to complete our work.

NightFall has had a very interesting history - for those of you that followed the mod, you will know that we had alot of ups and downs. This rollercoaster ride, especially the downs, have affected the team more than we possibly expected, and as a result the mod is not what we wanted it to be today.

To all the fans out there who followed us throughout our development, we thank you for your support throughout the years. From a humble map-pack to a full-blown total conversion, NightFall was a learning experience for every one of us on the development team. We all leave it with very few regrets, knowing that we are both better modders and better people as a result of the time we spent working together.

Yeah, it's bad to see a mod die, but in this case I'd say NF was victim of their too big ambitions...

This is way too sad. :( I wondered why I wasn't seeing any more info for this mod... And it was so promising.
I think that Crispy's got a good idea, as well. If you can find your way to making that a reality, it's be great.

Oh Jesus - that's sad news! I've been very interested in Nightfall and thought this one would make it to gold status. It's a shame, because you seemed to have organised a team and put up a lot of development already.
Perhaps something else can grow from what you got till now. Sad to see another mod die, which would have deseved better. Now I only hope the same thing won't happen to Nuclear Dawn and Dreamscape, as these are my most anticipated HL2 mods now.

It's really saddening to see this mod. I can very much empathise with how you feel, just be confident you did what you had to and that you all learnt a lot from the experience.

Have you guys considered an Open Source / Creative Commons release of what you have so far (including the HL stuff)? I heard some of it was in a fully playable state, and it would certainly be worth at least showcasing it in a final showreel/video at the very least. Even better would be if some of you guys worked on a 'Post Mortem' feature for the Moddb. I know it sounds morbid, but it would help others learn from your mistakes. It would be a very humbling act.

I honestly didnt think that was going to happen, this mod was up to such a professional standard ( well in my opion ) and you guys were churning out some great stuff. You will be sorely missed, but now you guys know you have talent why not put together something else???

My hope of ever seeing a really good HL2 SP mod just got a little grimmer. The only ones to come close is Riot Act and City Rebellion.
I wish you guys luck with whatever you are going to.

Indeed, and we'll freely admit that we were way too ambitious from the word go. >2 years is a long time to work on a project without a release, and frankly the screw-ups we made at the start of the development cycle crippled us alot because of that.

It seems as though most of the HL2 mods are slowly dying out... I remember there was a period of time when moddb's home page would be flooded with HL2 mod news and media release daily... Now you barely get any for a fortnight...

Perhaps the next project you guys partake in, either being done together or with other people, to be more successful than this project was.

This is happening with all the good looking mods :( I have doubts every time i see a real amazing mod.I'm afraid to get too excited about it because there is a bigger possibility that it will never see the day.Sadly :( So much great work

TKAzA is partially right. We will look back on the mod in the future and decide whether we think its worth persuing the project once again. We may feel that we can complete it, we may feel that some of the content can be expressed through our other work. We don't want anyone to be under any illusions that NF may come back, so for all purposes, the mod is no longer in active development

I aint a major watcher of this mod but I have come across it on my travels here on ModDb in the past, and from what I have seen so far, all I can say is that you should definitely not allow all this hard work go to waste..! You've collectively (as a team) created some quality work and deserves to eventually and somehow become a published reality..! Not to mention, you're fans deserve it too..! ;)

I'm sorry to hear this news also, much like all those that commented above... I may not have been a watcher, but I surely would have downloaded and given this mod a shot, once released... Just do what ya can to save what's been done to date and eventually get it published somehow... It would be worth the wait from a fans point of view... and well worth the effort in the end from a developers point of view! But that's just my opinion..! lol.

Whatever may happen... I wish you the best of luck for the future! ;)

Oh and btw... I'm gonna Watch this mod now just incase it may eventually be revived one day..! One can only hope! lol. Good luck! :)
