Wow.

I am honestly overwhelmed by the response I have had since I first announced this mod. This is the first time I have attempted to create something like this and the feedback has been incredible. It's great to see everyone enthusiastic about this, I have been creating this to purely entertain people and I hope I can deliver on that front!

Progress is very good, I am soon to finish chapter 3. As with anything creative, you soon start to release what is possible from the initial grand plan and have to trim back the layers until something feasible is left behind. I initially thought this would be 8-10 maps. I am currently on 12, and have four chapters to go! I also have been going back and retooling and editing previous areas, so previously released screenshots will differ in the end!

I may possibly split the campaign up into separate releases as a result, but I will see. I would love to share what I have made so far. It has been a lot of work, but you guys make it worth while :)

Here are some screenshots of the current status of the third chapter! Deep, dark and underground. Guess I've been playing too many horror games recently! Don't worry, you will make your way topside soon enough.

Thanks everyone, you rock :)

Considering how much progress you have made in the last 5 months, I take it we won't have to wait until 2015 to play this :D

I hope not! There won't be many updates over the next few weeks as I am busy at work and have a few holidays coming up, but will get straight back into it afterwards :)

If the mod needs much more time to be 100% completed, could you release it into 2 parts? maybe the first 3 or 4 chapters as soon as possible and then the next chapters into a second part in the next months??? I think it could be cool but maybe I'm wrong...

This all is to be decided at the moment sorry, I would love to show people what I have done so far but I feel that it may ruin the whole experience of the mod and spoil the story if I release it in parts! We shall see :)

There will definitely be a release of some sort in the future however!

I am using the standard Half-Life enemies and weapons for this, but finding ways to make them all fun to fight again :)

Otis makes some appearances though!
