"Dave, Any Ideas?" is a Half-Life mod developed as part of the "Game Design" course that I undertook during my degree. "Dave, Any Ideas?" is a single-player mod, where the player takes the part of Bob - the caretaker at a research lab specialising in teleport technology.
Shortly after his arrival at the lab, an accident occurs, with Bob caught in the middle. After the accident, the teleporters continue to fire at regular intervals - and each time poor Bob is teleported to a random location in the nearby area.
It is upto Bob to get to the power station at the heart of the lab so that he can disable the teleporters - all whilst fighting aliens and strategically planning his next moves against the regular teleporter malfunctions.
"Dave, Any Ideas?" was produced by myself and two others. I was responsible for modifying the Half-Life game code to add two new entities responsible for managing the random teleportation - which I also made available to Hammer so that they could be placed in maps. In addition to modifying the game code, I also produced the lobby (where the accident occurs) and lab (where the power station is located).
