Raising the Bar is a mod based off of the idea of amalgamating the earliest concepts of Half-Life 2 into a coherent story. This mod is not a leak-fix, nor is it a concept art recreation gallery; it will be a full story with inspiration from the old material as well as our own ideas of how to make it all fit together.

Report RSS Characters and Concepts

Hey everyone, we're back again bringing you a small, but substantive update containing some of our new characters, in both model and concept form!

Posted by on

So, it's been a while everyone, but rest assured that we're still alive and kicking!

While we may not have a ton of new content ready to show you just yet, there were a few things that we have finished just recently that we could show you guys (and gals). Up first are some concepts from our concept artist, ZitaX, who's been working to bring many of our characters and level ideas into a form that the rest of the team can flesh out further. We also have a nice render of the Antlion King model that was constructed by Guillermo, one of our new modelers, which hopefully will be textured up Soon™. You can check all of the new additions in the images tab!

Last, but not least, if you haven't heard already, we've got a Discord server up and running where you can speak with the developers and the rest of the community in real-time, depending on time zones and all the wonderful, inconvenient stuff. Here's a link to our server.

Now, if only we had more coffee packets to spread around...


Your most recent screenshots are amazing, I have to say. I really love the way you recreated the Antlion King, Captain Vance and the rest. Keep up the good work!

Concept art*
To be honest i really don't care about consept art, it is concept and might stay that way.

Regardless, they have gotten further than most have. Hopefully it won't die like Missing Information.
