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:

I did some digging, on one of the Half-Life wikis on this mod and I managed to find an unused bull-squid model. I like behind the scenes stuff and looking through scrapped material, I find it interesting.

haha ya that was waaaaay back in the day. Totally different team actually. Technically it's not even the same project because none of the assets were carried over and none of the same team members stayed on.

Those bullsquids were both made before GD and OBM merged into one team. We have since settled on one design, which I'm sure you will see in a future media update.

This is SO AWESOME!!!

If you decide to monetize this, like Black Mesa has done, I would totally buy it.

You should really consider making OF2.
With these assets, and those from HL2, you could create a thrilling glimpse of the 7 hour war. Sort of a prequel to HL2. Get Valve involved.
Just think about it :)

Keep up the good work!!

Hey devs, I wanted to ask what will you guys work on next after you finish OBM and GD? If you don't know or have no other projects to do then I was wondering if you would be able to help with Opposing Force 2. It was supose to come out ages ago, but never did and it looked like it was going to be a really great mod.

Can't wait to see more from you guys, Thnx! :3

We have zero plans for anything at the moment, we're focused entirely on OBM and GD right now. We likely won't pick up OF2 as I'm sure everyone on the team would much rather we do our own thing.

I think they said they were not going to make a half-life related game, or not even a first person shooter, after they were done with these. I could be wrong though
