Inspired by the award-winning Doom modification ‘Brutal Doom‘, the community developed Half-Life mod was released as a first beta (version 0.1).
As the name suggests, the mod attempts to brutalize the experience of the original Half-Life by adding details such as:
- Increased enemy dismemberment
- New death animations
- Custom gibs
- Better blood sprites and decals
- Enhanced effects, such as explosions, smoke, light effects, etc
- Improved AI
- New weapon sound effects
The mod also incorporates new gameplay features such as a kick melee, secondary weapon attack ability and a damage skills system.
Also, did anyone say BFG?
So far the mod has received a 10/10 rating on ModDB and has seen some positive attention from the Doom and Half-Life communities alike. So if you are in the mood for some gore intensified Half-Life, or just wanting to unleash your inner psychopath, this could be the mod for you.
You can download Brutal Half-Life and find more about the beta release over on ModDB.
