Hey guys, thought I'd make a thread about this mod here as well, with the first public version finally coming out next week. Platform is a mod inspired by Soldat and the likes of it, bringing HL2 to a 2D perspective. Even though most of the assets are the stock HL2 ones at the moment, I'm aiming to drive the gameplay away from the original HL2DM one in the long run, and most of the weapons have already been altered quite a lot from their original state.

I'm thinking of rounding up a team next (I need a modeler and possibly sound designer for now), but I decided to release a public version first instead of making announcements that I'm looking for a team without having anything but my ideas to show for it.

So, until next week, here's some gameplay footage to wet your appetite ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIB5mCgiV9I (sorry about the low sound, noticed it too late)

I'd definitely like to do SP somewhere down the line, but I want to polish the MP version a bit before moving to that, as SP would be quite harder to do since I'll have to rewrite most of the AI :)

Reminds me of Ragnarok Arena. Hopefully people actually play it after release, I know I'm going to download it.

Making and playing a platform version of HL-HL:EP 2 would still be really fun though.
