Run. Think. Shoot. Live. Source. Black Mesa is the Half-Life 2 total conversion of the original Half-Life game. Utilizing the Source engine and its endless array of possibilities and powers, Black Mesa will throw you into the world that started the Half-Life continuum and introduced Gordon Freeman to the world as a gun-toting, bullet-dodging Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics.

Anthony Stone, Jean Paul Jarreau, Ben Truman and Mike Hillard talk about the anticipated Black Mesa Source.

Posted by Henley on Dec 26th, 2008

Developer Banter, the only show you need for an insight into mods and indie game development. This time in the hot seat is the Black Mesa Source team. Black Mesa Source aims to re-make the award winning Half-Life game that won countless game of the year awards when it was first released 10 years ago. This mod wont be just a copy paste job like Half-Life: Source. Think high quality models, amazing scripted sequences and enough nostalgia moments to satisfy any Half-Life geek.

There probably will, since it's in the trailer. And BTW what's wrong with girl scientists anyway?
There were definetly 2 female scientists in Black Mesa anyway, judging from the PS2 only game Half-Life: Decay.
