Now onto the backstory of the mod:
In 2012, a Half-Life 2 Beta retail mod project was started. Dubbed "Raising the Bar" mod, the mod went through several iterations and attempted to produce a coherent storyline out of the cut storyline fragments from Half-Life 2's development cycle.
In August 2016, the developers of the mod discontinued the project, citing the mod team's lack of time to produce the mod. The developers decided to release a large amount of source files from the mod to the public to allow them to continue the mod.
Fast forward to February 2018, and the mod has been revived by an ambitious team of developers who aim to continue where the RTB team left off, and continue the project under a new name: Raising the Bar Redux.
The team, lead by Kralich, has released many developer updates and despite facing a leak of an unfinished build in September of 2018, the team has pressed on, and the progress they are making has been very impressive.
