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'm confused. I just downloaded and been playing Black Mesa... you know... the remake of the original Half Life? So what does this have to do with that? Does it have anything to do with that? Is this an expansion or improvement of the recently released Black Mesa???

The original "Uplink" was a demo for playable demo for Half Life, made from content that Valve cut from HL, so it fit's into the story. So, this "Uplink" is a remake of that one, as Black Mesa is a 'remake' of Half Life.

There's a three part mod, Timeline, that would be REALLY impressive if remade in Source. But I'm afraid that it would be too difficult because it uses an important amount of new textures, scripted sequences and set pieces (eg. a lightweight plane and a rocket). Also, to make it look nice and polished, it would be necessary to create new props and models.

Agreed, Timeline was a great mod, along with Sweet Half Life and Azure Sheep, as some of the best. Imho, of course
