Half-Life: Year of the Dragon mod for Half-Life is ambitious and has one goal. Make the entire game revolve around Spyro the Dragon. (Thanks, GamesRadar+). Why not? Magic Nipples (! This project shows Half-Life’s environments through a third-person view. It picks and selects levels from Half-Life and then remixes them to fit the annoying Dragon’s moveset.

Although the mod is still in development, there are some demos and the trailer below. Magic Nipples writes that it would be a hub world similar to a Spyro game. Then, you would have a selection from Half-Life or expansions. Although I have yet to finalize the list of chapters, I expect something similar.”

Magic Nipples has done several mods with Half-Life. One mod restores a large amount of cut content. These experiences led to them choosing to use the Xash3D engine instead of the Steam version. They told GR+ that they wanted to select Mario as their hero but knew Nintendo would immediately shoot it down.

This sounds like a difficult task. The first modder wins a big lawsuit to replace TF2 with Mushroom Kingdom residents.

This mod’s most striking aspect is how the creator modified the original game to make it more suitable for Spyro. What started as a simple idea has become a complex and intricate project. Magic Nipples states that while I don’t hate Half-Life, some chapters aren’t enjoyable to play as Spyro, even with modifications to his mechanics. “It would also be too taxing to me with the visual bump that I’ve given things so far. This is why I prefer to hand-pick chapters connected with a hub universe of sorts.

Before Magic Nipples did some magic and made the mod look better on Black Mesa, the mod was previously shown in a less impressive form. I was tired of the original Half-Life look after years of looking at it. This new look gives me a greater sense of accomplishment, despite taking more effort. It doesn’t feel like I just plugged in a Spyro model to Half-Life and called it quits.

That would have been great! ModDB allows you to follow the Year of the Dragon’s progress and try out different builds.
