A Cinematic Trailer For A Fan-Made Halo Game

This is the world we live in now. Where even fan-made, multiplayer-only Halo games get four-minute cinematic trailers.


This clip is for Installation 01, a back-to-basics Halo fan game for the PC that we first took a look at last year.

Looks like things are coming along nicely.

Installation 01 is an attempt to get back to the roots of Halo’s multiplayer, and the developers claim that their work is 100% legal and cool and fine, saying “We are carefully following the rules set forth in Microsoft’s Game Content Usage Rules. No content in our game has been ‘ripped’, it’s all handmade by our team.”

The roots of Halo’s multiplayer, eh? Then I expect melee to require minimum of three hits to kill anybody with full shields except with back shots. I expect no lunge assist, period. I expect that all weapons will be on simple respawn timers and not using checks to ensure only one is present on the map at a time. I expect the shotgun to be useful outside of face-grinding ranges. I expect plasma pistol overcharge to have only token homing capabilities and no EMP effect. I expect indestructible vehicles with weakened driver areas. I expect to be able to carry lots of ammunition.

Give me all of that, and we’re getting somewhere.
