Half-Life: Dreamcast is a PC port of the unreleased Sega Dreamcast console version of Half-Life developed by Gearbox Software originally slated for release in late 2000. The Dreamcast game contains a host of unique content that has not appeared in any other iteration of Half-Life, but up until now it was all confined solely to this forgotten port. That is, until now! The PC port allows you to play this lost game as a mod for Half-Life on Steam. Mod Features: Х Different Maps - The map alterations range from minor geometry fixes and lighting adjustments to entirely revamped areas. Several locations have been redesigned with performance and gameplay in mind while entirely new rooms have been added in some places to introduce another obstacle or puzzle to overcome. One entire level was even cut! Can you determine the missing map? Х Different Models - The Dreamcast version is host to a number of exclusive models not seen in any other version of Half-Life, including the High Definition pack and the PlayStation 2 port. Can you find the hidden VMU and Half-Life Dreamcast disc? Х Revamped Menu - Included is a new splash screen, menu background, menu color scheme, and menu sounds to closely emulate the Dreamcast's fancy interface. Х High quality soundtrack - Emulates the CD quality music used in the console version, overriding the default 48kbps mp3s on Steam. Х Tweaked Difficulty - To accommodate the difficulty of playing with a controller, Gearbox suitably rebalanced the monster spawns as well as enemy health and damage values. Х Password Notifications - Although the password system itself cannot be ported, all password messages that appear in normal gameplay have been brought over. Х The Little Differences - Too small to be noted in a bullet point, but true Half-life fans should be able to spot these in a heartbeat when they see (or hear!) them.
