A fact not known by many, but in 2016, when Half-Life 2 Repo leaks occured, among others there was found strange looking model of a cat.

The model didn't have any textures or animations or even bones, only this "deformed" mesh. It's quite possible it was an internal joke by one of Valve's modelers, for example about that cat that was mentioned by Barney.

The model was never leaked in a public access and all we have is a couple of screenshots.

Thanks to a tip given by a subscriber of our VK group, our gallery now has few official screenshots of Half-Life 2 from 2004 from a Czech fan site. Two of them are most likely from one of Czech gaming magazines and were never published anywhere else.

There's an interesting detail on a screenshot with a metrocop - a soda vending machine is not yet "Breen's private reserve" model as we know it from retail, but a brush vending machine that we all know from HL2 Beta.

You can check the rest screenshots in a gallery on our website.

[DSL]StalceR from hl-inside.ru disproved exclusivity of these screenshots. Turns out they were published in various gaming magazinesfrom summer 2004. And thanks to Valve Games Magazines Collection project we uploaded better versions of these screenshots in our gallery.

A person from our Discord channel with a nickname Simon9112 made an improved version of an official Half-Life 2 concept art, that is from about late 2000 - early 2001 and is loved by many HL2 Beta fans.
This concept art was first seen in Raising the Bar and the quallity wasn't too good originally.

Now as you can see on this comparison shot, the quallity is really great and many beta fans must be pleased.
