Black Mesa: Hazard Course
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!
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!

Greetings, everyone! We've got a bit of an update for you!
First off progress on the Hazard Course is going great. We have hit a bit of a bump, though.
You know that fancy schmancy hologram? Well, right now it's not a very animated character. At all. What we could really use is an animator! We need someone who can create realistic human movements as well as simple prop animations. We have a job post for more details.
As I'm sure you know, the hologram is pretty much the signature of the Hazard Course. No Gina hologram - No Hazard Course. We wouldn't want that, now would we? If you're interested or know someone who might be, please don't hesitate to contact us!
Moving on, here's a larger, less urgent update. We believe we'll be heading into a new alpha stage and be accepting more alpha testers soon. Soon as in sometime this mid-June. Now, this isn't set in stone (Things happen, y'know?), but we feel it's a great and reasonable estimate. If you're interested, we've also got a job page for that. Please read it carefully.
We get a lot of applications, so don't be disheartened if we run out of tester slots. We'll remember you when it's time for a new wave!
Welp, that's all for today. I'll just leave this right here and get back to work. See ya next update!
