41 comments by TKAzA on May 9th, 2015

Welcome back Mr. Freeman, Black mesa is now available on Early Access, Black Mesa is what we had all hoped half life source would have been, a total re invisoning of the Classic brought up to date with higher definition models, textures and more.

Crowbar collective state. “Making a game with the scope and scale of Black Mesa is a massive undertaking. Back in 2012 we made the decision to release what we had completed up to that point, and were blown away by the community’s response, feedback, and improvements to our work. We want to keep that relationship alive and well by using Early Access as a tool for allowing our community to participate in the final phase of Black Mesa’s development.

In addition, our ambitions go beyond the original Xen chapters found in Half-Life. We have a standard of quality that we have to achieve. Early Access allows us to commit resources to bring you the remaining chapters with the quality that you expect.”

"We currently have the first ~85% of our single player campaign completed. For the last 15% we want to not only recreate it, but improve upon it to make it an enjoyable and memorable experience. We feel it will take us considerable time to get the last 15% up to our standards, and putting a time estimate on it would be a total guess.”

This EA release sees you playing over 10 hours of single player campaign. Multiplayer deathmatch and team deathmatch with 6 completely re-imagined Half-Life 1 maps on the Source Engine.

you guys are doing a really good job! keep up the good work! and i concur with :-p

oh man your grunt models are awesome! before i saw them, it was hard for me to imagine a grunt being anything other than the ones in HL1 (short, fat, and almost cartoon-y) lol.

but is the final grunt gonna be just white and grey like that? cuz i think if instead of white, you could make it a dark grey color, and that'd be pretty cool. and he also seems to have somewhat a wedgie ;) looks a little funny.

just suggestions tho, and i like what you've done so far!!

Ok let me say something, most if not all of the Devs on this are Purists They are sticking with all the charactwers that were in it and will not change things drastically to make something different then what Valve had made originally, this means they won't add in refrences to Barney or Sheperd so they more then likely will keep the crossbow and its part.

The mod Will be completely purist with exception to restructering the enviroment to the new level that Source can offer

this looks incredible...I can't wait!

BTW, i noticed in one of your screenshots (headcrab jumping at player), that there are the ceiling tiles on the ground, and some of the tiles are inside of each other, rather than resting on each other like they should be...perhaps you could fix that.

This has probably been said but can you please shorten the start bit or at least make it skippable.

This mod is amazing! Feels like i'm playing a Valve's game, not a modification.
Now i understand what people felt like in 1998.

At first i made a really nice review to this game mod. But then i advanced further in the game and i got really pissed off... Yeah its pretty and scenic , yeah most of the voice acting is great and the music is fantastic but there is a huge annoying gash that just makes the game shit! AI: WHAT BASICALLY MAKES THE GAME SHIT AI: SHIIIT Soldiers...Im fine with other critters plaing running to eat you but soldiers(well the alien soldiers suck in this department as well). Anyway so where were we? oh…
