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.

NPC Recruit Operation Black Mesa: Recruit


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:

i have a question regarding the weapons in this mod.
is a pipe wrench still going to be used as your melee weapon on operation black mesa? and will your weapons do more or less damage as per difficulty level?

Pipe Wrench is somehow iconic for Opposing Force, no way we could cut this out. So yes, it will be there :).

As for damage, this will be tweaked, but at this point, it is more or less similar to original game, but there are already some differences here and there.

i don't know but i find using a pipe wrench to beat up the aliens is kind of hilarious and if it was real life the adjustment screw could inevitably come loose and the pipe wrench's head could fly out if its used like a hammer

Half-Life, while it is sci-fi thriller, always had something cheesy in it. It was never supposed to bring this kind of realism and we do not plan to change this.

This time I've got something to show you. These videos are not mine...but I found them today on YouTube. You folks must watch them. Man, I've never seen something like that before. It's about our favorite Marine from Opposing Force Adrian Shephard. Don't want to give any spoilers. So, just watch it :)
