The G String Half-Life 2 mod is a total conversion project that has been in the works for 13 years. Soon, it will be making its way to Steam as a full, standalone release.
If you've never heard of this game before, that's understandable — it's certainly been a pretty low-key project thus far. Check out this G String gameplay trailer to see some of this total conversion mod in action.
In G String, our humble little planet Earth has been damaged to a nigh-unlivable state. Mankind is fleeing to the stars, but you're not quite so lucky.
You'll be taking on the role of a Korean girl named Myo Hyori in the North American union. Your parents have disappeared and it's up to you to find them, but it won't be easy — this dark cyberpunk future is filled with plenty of perilous hazards.
Thankfully, you won't be entirely unarmed. Your Bortz Bioengineering Biosuit will help manage your sprinting and breathing, the latter of which is very important in the increasingly-dangerous environments you'll face. You'll also be able to wield powerful telekinetic and pyrokinetic abilities.
"I have spent my twenties trying to make a sci-fi movie and music," the developer said in a press release. "I wrote screenplays, learned editing, Photoshop, 3D [modeling]... Nothing took off so I started mapping... Modding slowly took over my life and after many years of struggle[,] everything culminated in this game. All my thirties went into it[,] but hopefully it was worth it."
Now, this 13-year project is finally coming to a close — and it will soon receive a launch on Steam.
When is the G String Half-Life 2 Mod Release Date?
If you're looking for something to tide you over until Cyberpunk 2077 launches, then the G String Half-Life 2 mod might be a pretty good choice. When can you get it?
Unfortunately, the developer did not specify a launch date or a potential price in a press release. However, it does seem like we're getting pretty close to launch, so you'll probably be able to play this game soon. For now, you can add G String to your wishlist on Steam and enjoy the product of one man's crazy dedication.
