Do you stay up at night, wishing you had a reason to play Half-Life? Well here'y your flimsy excuse!
Half-Life Dreamcast is a port to PC (requires Half-Life to be installed for the mod to work) of the Dreamcast version, which was slated for release a couple years after HL1 on PC, but was ultimately shelved.
Now's your chance to play the game you love(d), but slightly different.



Run. Think. Shoot. Live.

This just doesn't seem like a good time investment.

I guess you could pretend it's Black Mesa released 12 years ago.

Playing through HL is never a bad time investment. I'm curious enough to be interested in playing through this but I need to work through my backlog of unplayed games before I consider replaying games.

What was so different about Half-Life Dreamcast other than the console it was slated for?

More polygons (double i believe), unique NPCs, different props, level design which has been heavily modified in places (different lighting/geometry/new puzzle elements)

The HD models are a bit different than the ones in the Blue-Shift HD pack, and there are a few maps that are a bit different, some in Office Complex, Surface Tension & Lamda Core.
