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 hate randomly asking for help in comment sections. But this really needs to be addressed. I am unable to find detailed instructions on how to install and how to play uplink. I really feel like the way you play this is a$$backwards, since it is not just listed in my steam games library. I'm not trying to sound like a douche or and a$$hole but help me on this someone.

Very cool mod. Loved the easter egg near the end with the purple top hat. Thought for awhile I was going to find a "call Apogee and say Ardvark" sign...

Ummm.... Is anyone else getting this bug? I start the level, but the scientist and guard just stand there, so I can't continue.

Im getting a crash with this mod. I am at the dome and the scientist says "wait a moment and I'll let you in". The door opens and I hit a loading point. It crashes here every time. No explanation, just hl2.exe has stopped working and must close.
I installed with the exe first and thought it may be a problem with the instal so I used the rar file the second time and still get it.
Anyone else got this and any suggestions?
