Media Release 2015


Hi there and welcome to this year's first and, oddly enough, singular update!
There's a lot to talk about, so let's get right to it:

First off, we'd very much like to apologize for the lack media releases on our part. While we did intend to focus more on the actual task at hand and spend less engery on presenting it, we didn't expect things to get so busy and found ourselves pushing our updates further and further.
As many of you may have noticed, our website is currently down. That's mainly due to technical and usability issues. We are however setting up a new forum and hope to interact more with you guys once that's up.

But, and this comes from the whole team: We are very thankful and touched to see so many of you being as excited as ever, hanging in there, showing your support and even boosting us into the top 100 on MOTY albeit having heard and seen nothing for almost 2 years. It really means a lot to us and it's a great reassurance that a lot of folks want this mod to exist as much as we do. A big thanks to all of you; keep being awesome!

Status Update

So, what's the status on Operation Black Mesa and Guard Duty?
They are both being worked on with full energy and equal priority.

Guard Duty is being developed as DLC / expansion for the bigger and more content-heavy Operation Black Mesa, so it won't require an extra greenlight campaign. So if you are especially interested in Guard Duty, be sure to check on Operation Black Mesa; we report on both mods side by side as they are very close together in terms of progress.

As a token of us being very much alive and kicking as ever (or early Christmas presents if you will), enjoy the rest of our previews:

- 3D artists (props) experienced with Source
- Skilled animators
- A seasoned webdesigner, -coder

If you're interested, please do get in touch at "applications@tripminestudios.com"! We look forward to hearing from you.

That's all for now, but there'll be more in the near future!
Until then, have a very Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a fabulous New Year!

Much love

Keep up the good work! OpFor and Blue Shift were two of my favorite games when I was younger, so I'm looking forward to see Guard Duty and Operation Black Mesa complete.

Is Guard Duty and Uplink come free with Operation Black Mesa or will we have to pay, not to sound selfish or anything.

Well, it's a mod, so I'm sure it'll be free.

as for Dr. Rosenberg ... are you going to create the character based on the HL model? Or is he going to have a bit different look? Like "your version of Dr. R." + who is the voice actor? is there any possibility to hear some audio bloopers?

good job, since blue shift is way short than opposing force, i suggest you finish guard duty first so we have a taste of whats coming in operation black mesa
