Black Mesa: Hazard Course is an add-on for the Source Engine mod Black Mesa, featuring a completely new perspective on Half-Life's Hazard Course. The Black Mesa Hazard Course will feature:

-New HD models & textures
-New dialogue & voice acting
-New maps and detailed environments
-Expanded intro, similar to Half-Life's PS2 version

Since this is a community project, we welcome people to help out in any way, from suggestions to fan-made content. Currently we are looking for people to fill these positions:


Any suggestions (within reasonable bounds, of course) are also welcome from anybody!

Media Policy

Remember that great mod, Black Mesa? Anyone familiar with the Black Mesa mod and its agonizing development cycle may remember long periods of media blackout. Since this is a community project rather than a full-fledged modding team, we are pleased to announce that, unlike the original mod, it will be our policy to strive to be as open as possible with the development process!

That's right. Expect to see half-finished areas, heavy WiPs and lots of orange and gray "dev" textures!

We do, however, announce this policy with a disclaimer: We hope that all of our followers will try their best to be as mature as possible, and realize that due to the open nature of our development process, the vast majority of media that will be released will NOT be fully representative of the final product.

This can be a good thing! It allows YOU, the followers, to give feedback early, so that we can make easy changes to give YOU what you want!

So criticize away! Just keep it civil!

Is this mod dead?

If you're reading this, then no. There is no point in letting a project die without notice. If we were to die, we'd be sure to let you know, however we have absolutely zero plans on doing so, and the mod is currently going strong.


Black Mesa: Hazard Course requires:
-The free Source SDK Base 2007
-Black Mesa

Thank you. Have a very safe, and productive day.

Hellloooo, ModDB. We've got a bit of an important update regarding the status of the mod, so strap in!

Well, it seems we've been beaten to the punch to this update. The last few weeks we've been accepting a few last Alpha testers before we dive into Beta. Most weren't very productive (despite giving solid interviews and even a resume or two), which is where we thought it had ended. Well, it seems they only wanted in for the sake of checking out and leaking our humble little mod before it was ready, and before we could even make our special announcement, no less! So, since the cat's already out of the bag, we'll go ahead and officially give you the big news a few months early!

These last few months have been gruelling, with choreography the largest remaining component to completion, and no choreographers. We've searched high and low, but to no avail. This has prompted us to make an important decision, and one we certainly don't make lightly: We've decided to change genres of the Black Mesa Hazard Course!

That's right, first-person shooting training? Who needs that these days?! It's overdone and we don't have a lot of options at this point. We've decided to change course (ha!) and go for a point and click horror mod, in the vein of recently popular series Five Nights at Freddy's! Feast your eyes!

We currently have a trailer in the works, however we weren't anticipating this rushed announcement. In its place, we present the first official Five nights at Hazard Course Gameplay Footage

We think it speaks for itself.

Revamped, reworked, improved, and with a thrilling new direction, Five Nights at Hazard Course will be aimed to appeal not only Half-Life series veterans, but in addition, the exceedingly large Let's Play community. We feel this change is for the best, since as we all know, attempting to appeal to a larger audience means a better final product overall.

We hope you're as excited about the change as we are, and hope to have it in your hands before the year's out. Have a nice spring.

Until next update!

I hate people who ask for demos on mods. I want a full mod, not a 3 minute long demo!

Oh look, a wild Alpha trailer has appeared. :D


I wish I didn't need to take a bus to go to TacoBell, I'm really craving some Mexican food after watching this trailer.
