Black Mesa: Uplink is the recreation of the Half-Life demo (HL: Uplink) released by Valve in early 1999. The demo featured content that was scrapped from the original storyline. Some might consider it canon with the story, others don't. What matters though, is that many people enjoyed this short episode and that's the reason why I created Uplink for Black Mesa, the long awaited Half-Life remake for the Source Engine.

To play Black Mesa: Uplink, you will need the Source SDK Base 2007 (free) and a copy of the Black Mesa (also free!).

2 comments by Hezus on Dec 23rd, 2012

An update for everyone who has participated in the 3FM Serious Request Charity Event. Between the 18th and 24th of December 3 DJ's from a national Dutch radio station are holding their 7 day famine while being locked up in a glass house, to raise money for the Red Cross. This year's goal is to fight unecessary death of babies in third world countries.

I've asked the followers of my MOD to donate some money for this cause and I'm glad a few of you decided to help out. Together we''ve raised 50 USD and I've donated 40 EUR today. Currently 4,3 million EUR (5,7 million USD) has been donated by people in the Netherlands and with 1 day left it''s likely to become even higher. Hopefully a lot of good work can be done with that money.

EDIT: Event has officially ended and a record of donations has been raised: 12,25 million EUR!

Thank you all for the support! I wish all donators, followers and voters a merry Christmas (if you celebrate it) and all the best for 2013!

I really like these new pics!

Have you alredy scripted the rocket that pass through the container?

I've sent you a pm regarding the aplication as Italian translator, when time will come you can count on me!

I was thinking that should be a good idea to use the current translations of Black Mesa as a reference.
In this way, This part of your work won't stand out and will link seamlessly with BM.

Nice man! Great atitude, but i disagree, if the uplink source introduced in blackmesa source, its not a bad idea at all.(just my opinion) Even it developing separate, i will enjoy whatever been done.

I think this is the third attempt I've seen of Uplink being ported to Source.

I wish you the best, however, as what you have shown is worth tracking :)

I know it's early days but if you're going to be looking for some voice acting for the small amount of dialogue in the demo, PM me and I can link you to my demo reel which contains Barney and Scientist dialogue. :)
