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:

Woooow, nice media update guys :) ...you have made a lot of new cool stuff :) hang in there and keep up the good work.

If I may point out one little mistake in the media description... I think the chapter name of the picture (the one with the exploding barel) is wrong, that section is not from "Missing in action" chapter, but from "The Package"

Sure they are not using content from another developers. These two projects are made by TripMine Studios, not by Crowbar Collective ( BMS ) .

I would recommend you to read older updates and info. Everything is up this comment section.

OBM & GD teams merged in early 2012, both projects have been co-existing since then, any effort in one mod helps the other.

Black Mesa: Insecurity's goal is to recreate Blue Shift using Black Mesa assets, ours is to re-create Blue Shift from the ground up!

And we have always stated we will not use or merge into Black Mesa, the projects are separate and too much time & work would be wasted if that were to happen.

I hope this answers your questions.

Black Mesa and Operation: Black Mesa. Kinda does look like a sequel, weren't it for the separate devs. :)
