Dear fans of Lost Story and the Half-Life universe!
We wish you all a great April 1-st! And...straight to serious news. (:

As the most of you already know, this year Valve $oftware has announced a new version of their brand $ouce Engine with a symbolic number 2. For $ouce game devs and modmakers this was the most pleasant piece of news. The promising graphical advancements and additions to the game physics, as well as the availability for game devs and content creators, have attracted our attention very much. Of course we are not saying that the original $ouce Engine is not good enough to work with, but one should not deny that the new version is way more comfortable to work with. A great evidence of that is the new Dota 2 Workshop Tools Alpha on the $ouce 2. Once again we should admit that a lot of people are still waiting for some big announcement concerning the Half-Life franchise, but alas, it is not happening. Well, at least we'll try to fix this situation by releasing our own game set in the Half-Life universe with the brand new version of $ouce Engine! (:


Many of our fans had asked us questions: "Why didn't you name your game Half-Life: Lost Story?" and "Why is the name of your game so long?". We will do our best to answer these questions as simple and clear as possible. The game of the name doesn't have a "Half-Life" in it because we've decided to decline the usage of this brand name after our game has passed the $team Greenlight. We are developing our own game, and so we've decided that we need an original name that would stand out from the usual mods and add-ons for the Half-Life universe. A very hard-remembering name "Lost Story: The Last Days of Earth" was approved in 2012 with the amounts of our projects with the name "Lost Story" as the headline. At the moment we are looking into the matter of a possible change of the length of the name or the whole name itself.

Release date

We are also sure that many of you are interested in knowing the reasons of the such long development period and the possible release date. Our small team is working on a such big project for the first time in our lives, and most members of the team are working remotely. During the development we have not only to pay attention towards the story, the gameplay, the visual and sound parts of the game, but also to deal with organizational, financial and crew problems. Sometimes due to these problems we are forced to decline the realization of some of our ideas and always to blend into new conditions. Despite all of the difficulties however, we have set a certain goal for ourselves that we will do our best to reach. And because of that, the release date will not be announced until the game looks the way you want to experience it.

In conclusion we would like to remind you that we answer all the questions publicly on very rare occasions. If you've asked us any questions on forums or on our $team Greenlight page, please, send them to our email.

In touch with You,
The Lost Stories Team.

Project got greenlit. Now we work on release standalone build.
It isn't easy to do after 3 years of working with L4D2 content.

You should only wait for release @ Steam.

Also we need in model's artists and texture's artists.

В команду разработчиков могут вступать лишь по приглашению или любые энтузиасты, с предварительным показом бывших работ?

Вопрос чисто из интереса

В последнее время к нам попадают только по приглашению.

З.Ы. Но это не означает, что мы не принимаем энтузиастов с предварительным показом бывших работ.

Lately only by invitation only.

P.S. But that doesn't mean that we don't recruit enthusiasts.

Вообще интересно знать, этот мод как Black Mesa, лишь использующие движок Source но при этом весь контент создан вами? Или все таки используется немалое кол-во "вещей" из HL2 (оружие, заготовленные модели, звуки и тд)

И вот еще вопрос, на каком языке будет озвучка?
Проблем с английским нету но знать интересно

Для запуска на аккаунте потребуются L4D2 и Source SDK Base 2013.
Будет доступно 2 озвучки: английская и русская.

For launch you need L4D2 & Source SDK Base 2013.
There will available 2 voices: English and Russian.

И Steam конечно же. Грубо говоря основным нежданчиком для всех будет только L4D2.

Секундочку, а где то в ранних новостях или самом анонсе мода вообще говорится что либо о L4D2?
А то чувствуется что у некоторых может пердак нагреется когда узнают об этом за несколько дней до релиза :3

Чувак, я уверен что у процентов 70-ти пользователей steam найдется L4D
И тем более из этих 70% у 99% тех кто интересуются модами она должна найтись :р

Это же сколько контента (или кодов или чего то еще) вы утилизируете что требуется аж сама L4D2?
