Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, and find yourself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. You must rescue the world from the wrong you unleashed back at Black Mesa.

The original Half-Life sent a shock through the game industry with its combination of pounding action and continuous, immersive storytelling. Valve's debut title won more than 50 Game of the Year awards, was named "Best Game Ever" by PC Gamer, and launched a franchise which has since sold over 11 million units worldwide. By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original Half-Life and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player’s presence affects everything around him or her, from the physical environment to the behaviors and even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

Technical note: most mods “for Half-Life 2” are actually cross-compatible with all of Valve's Source engine games. Check a mod’s profile for details on whether a specific game is needed.

About The Hunted with 0 comments by ewaananen on Oct 27th, 2014

Happy October, Hunted fans!

Halloween will soon be upon us, so in the spirit of the season we've decided to release several brand new character concept art pieces featuring our monstrous "Hunter" character.  These images were all created by our team's Character Concept Artist, Samantha Peña, and show several iterations of our Hunter creatures as they've evolved throughout production. These grotesque abominations were once former scientists who have begun to mutate, slowly losing their human identity, so to ensure that you don't suffer the same fate, it'll be imperative to avoid contact with them at all costs.

On the other end of things, gameplay development has been progressing fantastically. Team mechanics are all set up and working properly while spawning functionality is very close to being finalized.  Our internal tests so far have been incredibly promising and the core gameplay mechanics continue to be polished with each new build. We are beginning to bring environment art assets into the game in order to start populating our level and a rough lighting pass has really added some early atmosphere to the game. In other news, our first official alpha test is going to be held in just a couple of weeks and should produce a wide array of data to help us further iterate and improve on all aspects of The Hunted's design.

Finally, just a quick reminder that we are continuing to look for skilled individuals who would be interested in joining our development team in the following capacities:

- Texture Artists
- Character Modelers
- Character Animators
- Programmers/Coders (with C++ and/or Source experience, specifically)

Interested parties are welcome to fill out an application at our website at Thehuntedgame.com.

From all of us here at The Hunted Development Team, have a Happy Halloween and be sure to keep your eyes fixed on the horizon for more news from us soon.

Are There any good alternatives to Valves own mapping tool? Because I heard Hammer is A bitch to work with.

Hammer's easy to use and (generally) work with, it's just a buggy little ****, and the engine *itself* a bitch to work with. Hammer on its own is fine, and I'd recommend that to start with anyway since there's so much documentation.

Hammer is one of the easiest to use mapping tools i have ever used. the only problems you'll have is configuring it, and even that's easy.

I don't think so. I do know that Valve left various Source modders stuck, unable to work on anything for a bit.

Sadly it never ends for Gordon Freeman, he is gaming worlds Jack Bauer, consistently going from one bad day to the next. No sooner have you blown up the head of the Xenian Nihilanth and discussed career prospects with the mysterious G-Man than he tosses you in the mix again. Another train ride another mysterious situation leaving Gordon (and you the gamer) none the wiser, but thats what we like about the Half-life series and all it's canonical universe, Valve will always give you a Palm d'or plot…
