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.

This article has been long over due, but some minor road blocks prevented it from being posted at the correct time. That said, there's been quite a lot done over the past month.

To start off, the functionality of lasers has been completely changed. They no longer damage the player, and can be blocked by objects and the player. However, their overall look is a W.I.P.

Additionally, due to the help of Reepblue, many models have been updated (though they may still be subject to change in the future). This includes doors, cube dispensers, cubes, and more.

Flip cubes have also been implemented into the game. Pause and bomb cubes have received minor model and skin changes, as well as the removal of the ability to freeze pause cubes via "E" for the pause cubes. This was done to allow for more possibilities while creating puzzles, as well as to stay true to the original PUNT.

As shown somewhat in the media above, the art style is going through some serious changes. Instead of taking inspiration from Reepblue's Retro Futuristic PUNT, we're now looking to have it more closely resemble Reepblue's PUNT from 2012. Within a week or so, we plan on uploading a video demonstrating a new puzzle which utilizes both Pause and Flip cubes, as well as a few new objects which are currently in the works.

Development of PUNT: Rebirth has really kicked into full swing, and we hope to have much more ready for the public in the near future.

Until next time,

-Tristan (BoxandRocks) of the Corrupted Studios development team

Here's a great in-depth, insightful explanation of the Half-Life universe plot:

It also has some very, very, very interesting & fascinating theories about the G-man.

Fun Fact: Despite common belief, Shenmue 3 is not, in fact, Half-Life 2 related.

That is very obvious, however you can't deny they are both oldies that defined many of us as gamers to this day. If Shenmue 3 is a success, the chances of companies bringing back many old games like half life and etc. for fans who have been waiting forever, will and should increase. I am very optimistic that this will in fact happen.

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…
