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 1 comment by ewaananen on Sep 27th, 2014

Hi there, everyone!  Today, I have the pleasure of sharing a series of brand new concept art pieces with you all.  These concepts were created by our Environment Concept Artist, Andrew Pray, and they feature a combination of both Blender and Photoshop techniques to create a really unique style.  These are concepts for just a handful of rooms that are featured in our level, so we’re excited to give you this sneak peak into the visual direction of The Hunted.

In addition, we’d also like to report that gameplay development has been moving along very smoothly.  We currently have network functionality up and running and we’re working on setting up team mechanics and getting the system to instantiate players properly.  Once that’s done we’ll be able to move right along into internal team testing (our alpha stage) while we continue to make updates to the level and refine the gameplay on an iterative basis.

Lastly, we do want to let everyone know that we are still looking for a handful of talented individuals to fill a couple of remaining slots on the team, most notably Environment Artists, Texture Artists, Character Modelers, Character Animators, and Scripters/Coders (with C++ and/or Source experience, preferably).  We have some members on the team that are already fulfilling many of these roles, but we are always on the lookout for additional team members with the right skills to help bolster our roster.  So, if you’re interested in joining our development team, just head on over to our website at Thehuntedgame.com and be sure to fill out an application.

Well that’s it for now!  Be sure to stay tuned though; we’ll be back soon to share some character concept art and keep you up to date with further progress reports!

valve is really making it hard to mod, scene.images don't work anymore after the steampipe update, and for awhile the friggen mod tools didn't work at all for weeks until the community figured out a way around it. I appreciate valve's tenancity at updating an aging engine, but is it really necessary to screw with whats worked before breaking mods in the process? Theres alot of old mods that won't be updated..

I got very scared (and angry) during the Steampipe updates. Is there no limit to the amount of things Valve can break?

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…
