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:

You can expect it when they ******* ANNOUNCE IT! Is waiting for a remake of 2 expansion packs which are priced at absolutely free too much to ask?

For crying out loud man it was just a question calm down. Why get so mad over something that is not even related to you at all. I understand game development takes time (And before you say no you don't or something like that I am a game developer myself so I think I know it takes time) And if they want to keep it a secret the release date thats fine but I don't see whats wrong with trying to find out some infomation about the mod. I don't understand why me asking a question that shouldn't offend anyone managed to offend you and it wasn't even directed at you.

Well,TBD means TO BE DECIDED. It's not a secret,it's just that they don't have a definitive release date. For someone who claims that he's a game developer,a simple acronym right at the top of the page of this mod is the one thing you don't understand? MR.sugar (lead developer) himself said that they'll announce it when they 100% are absolutely sure it will be released that date.

What do you mean claiming I am a game developer. I am a game developer. I have my own company as well and I have made many games and mods. And I do know what TBD means and I was never asking for a exact release date I was just asking for like if it would be around the begining of the year or in the far or to near future.

Well,they don't know. "But it's only approximation like this decade plzplztellme" that's you. But asking about the ******* release date for the ******* trillionth time is not gonna get things ******* done quicker. The last thing this great developer needs is peer pressure.

I am not pressuring the developers. The only reason I want to know is because I have actually been following this mod for a while and since I started it has seemed pretty dead with no news. I know it is not dead but the last official piece of news they post was about a year ago. So I guess I would just like to know a small detail but if its not final or they don't want to give one out thats fine there is no pressure. It is just it isn't really good to keep your fans in the dark about your game for so long because they might start not being interested. I am not saying this game will lose its fan base I am just saying it is a posibility if they don't at least tell us that it is still in development. I agree they have worked very hard and woudld probley deserve a rest even for a bit. Game development is very hard and that is why games take so long to make but that is also why you have to keep the fans up to date other wise they might think the mod is ddlead but really it is just being worked on but they havn't posted much news about it.

Hey, we are constantly in touch with our fans. Just a visit of facebook, website and it should be clear enough. We do not post big updates, but there are small ones here and there.

I'm pretty sure they would announce it if the mod is dead for ****'s sake.

I now the game is not dead. What I am saying is it would seem dead to a new user who has not heard of this before. And normaly it is they anounce it if it cancled dead is when they just left it with a general update that dosen't say anything about it being cancled and yet it seems cancled. Also I still do not see why you are mad.

This is the reason. When you guys didn't read any of the upper section description. Before commenting.

Anyway, this project is going to release in free during in the final production and you're going to even more happy before that happened. It can be just directly install without requiring of the EP2 to play it.

Also, have a great day to you.
