Footage Of Half-Life Alpha Build Surfaces

Posted on Wednesday, January 9 @ 12:17:16 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

You may remember the legendary gaming artifact from last month which warranted its own article: a Half-Life alpha build disk. As historically fascinating as it was, it was the content of the disk that everyone was craving, and now those wishes have come true.

The alpha build of Half-Life has been published online, and it didn't take long for YouTube users such as Lambda Core to share footage for those of us who don't want to bother installing the game. The video captures some of the magic that would blow away gamers a year later, but its elementary state shows why Gabe Newell fought for more development time—a move that would pay dividends.

If you'd rather play it yourself, you can purchase the original disk on eBay where the bid is currently at $151.
