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.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Hazard Course Direction Update Update

10 comments by JeffMOD on Apr 4th, 2015

Another day, another change of plans.

Earlier we announced our recent change of direction. We're here to announce that we will not actually be making a Five Nights at Freddy's themed Hazard Course. Despite the resounding, near deafening approval from the community at large, our lawyers have informed us that this isn't a legally viable direction, and some of our investors have withdrawn. As such, we will be sticking with classic Half-Life style!

We are, however, still looking for a Choreographer to breathe life into our NPCs - and we need that secured before we can finalize the Beta version! As we've said before, with a choreographer on our team, we should be able to release before the end of the year no problem.

And lastly, for those who are curious, that FNAHC video was actually a totally functional "prototype," made by project leader/level designer "dky.tehkingd.u," entirely within the Hammer editor over about a week and a half, with additional assets and VO by level designer JeffMOD. If you're interested, you can check it out, and play it for yourself right here.

(Update: Just pushed a missing texture fix. Download should be back up now. Thanks for your patience! -DKY)

Five Nights at Hazard Course

We hope it put a smile on you guys' faces. And if not, well... we'll just send Purple Man and give you a reason to keep it that way.

Until next update, good days, guys!

So I've been making games for 28 years, and you want to judge my work as being cartoony? I have more talent with Source than any of you, guaranteed. You let my friend Crypt on the team .. and he's an average mapper, period. Who do you think compiled the code for 'Office Complex'. hmm? without me it would still be SourceSDK 2007. Is all the work I did for OC cartoony? Take one look at my ModDB profile boy. Name anybody that knows more than me. I should do my own Hazard Course mod, alone, to put you all to shame.

Now get to deleting this before anyone else sees it. Good boy.

No one accused anyone of anything. I must be missing a lot of context.

Who said "cartoony" was a bad thing, anyway?

Yeah, there's nothing wrong with something looking stylized or fantastical (perhaps 'cartoony' isn't *quite* the right word). It's just that we need a specific art style, which is one that matches Black Mesa's.
I personally haven't had a chance to peruse much of your work, but what I have seen is gorgeous. We just needed to know how flexible you were on style, because some people have a specific stylistic specialty that they stick to.

During my time on the Black Mesa team, I never became personally offended by my work being called cartoony. Instead I held enough humility to internalize this feedback, and the result was always better because of that. I would have hoped that even someone as experienced and talented as you, would feel the same.

What do these people have in common? They all somehow forgot that there exists a day we like to call April's fool day. Upon reading yesterday's news, they completely lost their *excrement* and in their lack of intelligence they have spazzed out in the comment section like Microsoft Sam, sometimes writing long and elaborate (read pretentious) comments. Not even the obvious joke about "Hazard Course: Infinity" (yes, even the dr. Seuss edition) gave the fake news away for them. I would like to award these individuals with the following: a Dunce hat, a retard cookie for each and the official Emprerorsfist awards for impulsiveness, ignorance and lack of humor. I would also like to thank them for further decreasing my faith in mankind as a whole. May these people have a very pleasant and productive day.

Can't see why you think that. Nobody got hurt and it brought all the morons out of the woodwork.

It's not like they said one of the developers died or anything.

Geez, get a grip.
