First off, allow us to apologize for our prolonged absence - we've had much to contend with and it's been a very exciting (and sometimes turbulent) year for us.

However, we are happy to announce the launch of a devblog for our new game, BEACON, a sci-fi action roguelike coming to PC. We know this might not be your cup of tea as it is very different from Black Snow, but give us a chance to impress you. And if it happens to be right down your alley, then by all means follow us along the development of the game and chime in to give your feedback as we create the product together!

Follow the development of the game alongside us here at our devblog. If you are curious about who "we" are, check out our website.

I did the SteamPipe gameinfo.ctg fix, but the game crashes during the opening cutscene (when the guy is pulled into the darkness). Has anyone found a way to get the game running correctly yet?

I managed to extract the right gcf files to a seperate folder and made a shortcut to run blacksnow and now the games runs without problems.

I get the same issue. White screen at the beginning as it loads and it doesnt work. Ive tried the steam pipe fix and it gets to the intro part where the first guy dies and hl2.exe stops working. Apparently the answer I got was this...

"Unfortunately with the new update from Valve for SDK 2013, Black Snow is no longer playable in its current state. We do not have the time nor the manpower to fix this at the moment as we're involved in the current project that is in a critical phase of development. Rest assured we will fix and maybe even revamp Black Snow after our current commitments are announced."

Shame I know, I think the should fix this first then go back to their "critical project," but thats just me.

Black Snow NAILS atmosphere and makes you feel vulnerable and alone. As a part of a rescue team dispatched to a research complex in the middle of the tundra. You end up separated, chased and all but you remain. With dark hallways and the ominous presence of something unknown lurking in the shadows and no way to defend yourself, the true sense of making you feel afraid is done right. You must avoid a darkness out to kill you by using light, and solve many puzzles that will test your ability to think…

The mod started off well enough, you got tension and mystery. You had to explore well and it gave you a indication of what you can pick up. The annoyance starts with this arbitrary light switching that makes zero sense why it changes like that, and if your left in the dark you end up being chased around and stuck inside a room with that thing right outside, forcing you to reload without a chance. It moves really fast so you end up dying without a fighting chance as soon as you make a mistake. Then…
