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.

If you haven't had a chance to find a copy of PCGamerUK, you can now read it on our media page. We first want to welcome several new faces to the development team including Angry Lawyer, a programmer who actually is a lawyer; TeddyBear, a texture artist whose work includes the Super-Soldier from Sven Co-op; Nokia, our second programmer; e-freak, an aspiring texture artist ; and Stormy, a modeling hurricane. In case no one has noticed, HLFallout.net recently interviewed us, and we provided them with two exclusive screenshots of Forget About Freeman and Lambda Core.
With media this month, apart from the magazine exposure, we have levels, weapons, concepts and music. The first public viewing of a skinned model from Black Mesa: Source comes in the form of the 9mm GLOCK: modeled by Sanada and skinned by NecEvil. Following suit is another chapter preview: Forget About Freeman, designed by the talented Kester.
At Black Mesa: Source, plans are always changing, new ideas are popping up, and we find ourselves scrapping old progress to create a more intensive experience: which is why we have decided to release ONE full resolution shot of Surface Tension. This shot features the dam with custom textures created by NecEvil & bkd86. Flanking all of these is our conceptual art. The Anomalous Materials Entrance and Apache concepts drawn by bkd86 with the Controller concept drawn by, the now retired, Ole. In the Music department, we have a one-minute preview from our sound tracks, composed by the stunning Plink. The track is dubbed "Surface Tension".
To finish this all off, for all of you who are experiencing difficulties or having problems with the FLASH page, we have now released an HTML version of the website for your viewing pleasure. Our web developer Section_Ei8ht has added his own little comical twist to it. Before viewing the website, we would like to note it is designed to give you a chuckle.
Our WEBSITE is always open and we only ask you to stop by our FORUMS and give us your opinions on our work and any ideas you may have!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Black Mesa. We love games like Half-Life 2 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
