Black Mesa Summer Update
has a status report on this project to
remake the original Vintage Half-Life with the engine from the original Vintage
Half-Life 2 (thanks RedEye9). As always, there's progress, but as always,
there's still more to do. The update notes that this is currently 60% off as
part of the Steam Summer Sale. They also mention Half-Life's upcoming 20th
anniversary, a reminder that this remake has been in the works for well over
half that span. The team has also released
a new brief video
your moment of Xen.
There has been lots of progress on Xen. We have
started external playtesting. The first two chapters, "Xen" and "Gonarch's
Lair", clock in around two hours. For reference, all five chapters of Xen in HL1
can be completed in approximately one hour! We are really excited to show our
work to everyone, but we also want to save the majority of Xen as a surprise.
