footage from Arkane’s Half-Life spin-off, Raven Holmwas put online by Noclip, the YouTube channel known for producing some really great documentaries about gaming.
The hour-long footage shows you the build that Arkane created to show Valve the current progress of the game. That means what you’re looking at isn’t a finished title, but it still offers a glimpse of what could have been.
In the game, you would have played as Opposing Force’s Lieutenant Shephard and met up with a fellow named Father Gregory, who has taken refuge in an asylum used as an experimentation center. The building used to be a children’s hospital once in its life, so toys would have been found on the floor of the place, making it “a bit creepy”.
Ravenholm was a standalone spin-off of the Half-Life games, and it’s a shame it never saw the light of day.
