After nearly 3 years of on and off development, I finally present to you all my first major Half-Life 2 Beta mod, Vertigo! Make your way through the war-torn streets of City 17 and the long abandoned Vertigo Tower in search of Captain Vance. This mod aims to find the sweet spot between era-accuracy and quality of life and gameplay with the 2001 "Vertigo" chapter of Half-Life 2. Play time is around 45 minutes to an hour, and all necessary files for making your own rendition of the mod are included in the download.There are too many people for me to thank to list off in the description, but in general, a thank you goes out to the community for encouraging me to finish this mod and helping me along the way.


NOTE: This mod requires outside dependencies to work, it will not work with the standard Steam edition of Half-Life 2. Links to said dependencies have been provided in the installation instructions section.

Pretty Fun! I would put it on hl2-beta.ru though since when I first downloaded it I thought it was a mod for retail.

Pretty good! As faithful as it was, the intro took a little too long for my taste. Glad to see people are *still* making mods for not only HL2, but for it's beta. Keep up the good work!

I caught the sarcasm, I just don't care. A comment still generates more attention whether it's rude or sincere.
