After the release of Half-Life: Alyx for virtual reality devices, several modders released their versions of the game without reference to VR. But most of these projects have limited functionality and do not allow you to enjoy playing with familiar devices. The SoMNst modder, meanwhile, continues to create a more elaborate project, where, for example, you can draw with felt-tip pens on glass using the mouse.
The author demonstrated the current state of the mod in a 37-minute gameplay video. In it, he noted that he reworked the puzzles under the classic controls for playing behind the monitor, improved the passage of the plot and added a work menu. The collision system of objects and the behavior of weapons have also been improved.
At the same time, some elements still lost their charm – for example, Alix now does not raise her hands in the scene with combines, or does not climb stairs with effort. Nevertheless, in the comments, users assure that this is one of the best versions of such a mod for Half-Life: Alyx. Unfortunately, the author has not yet released it to the public and continues to work.
