Developed and remade by Cracked Computer Studios
Boasting the ability of re-creation with talented producers and creators, Recovered Operations will exuberate high-class, padded gameplay with instantaneous enjoyment - stemming from the delectably written dialog and scenes!
Recovered Operations is a Half-Life 2 modification that aims to recreate, reinterpret, and reimagine Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes, the Counter-Strike series' sole single-player experience. Recovered Operations is not merely a graphical update: it will incorporate many new features and elements aimed at creating a more polished, realistic, and story-driven experience than the original game. In the mod, as in the original, players will assume the roles of various elite counter-terrorist operatives, and deploy across the globe to conduct missions in a variety of countries and environments.
Following a long and tumultuous development period, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero was released in March of 2004 after suffering numerous setbacks and passing through several developers. A scrapped single-player version of the game, developed by Ritual Entertainment, was released separately as Condition Zero: Deleted Scenes. Deleted Scenes was met with mixed reviews, with many pointing out its severely dated graphics and general lack of polish. In spite of this, the game has managed to accrue a modest fanbase. As such, we feel Deleted Scenes deserves a modern update, produced to a higher standard of quality.
Our last update was over half a year ago. 9 months to be exact, but this article will make up for it.
This is what's been happening:
So, it's finally here, the media update we've been talking about for so long, originally supposed to be out some time in 2016, then by the end of that year to the beginning of this year. But because of all the set backs we've had to hold it off until now, but again, it's finally here now and the wait is over at last.
We'd also like to apologize for the lack of updates throughout the years, it's been a bumpy ride from the start but things are finally stable and with that we're ready to go through this year at full speed!

We've been doing Recovered Operations since the 1st of November 2013, and so you might be asking
"How long left until release?", "Where is the demo?" or the infamous "Dead?"
And well, we really don't have any answer to the first two, but the last one is a clear negative, we're still alive and strong. As stated earlier, it's been a bumpy ride since the beginning and the truth of the matter is that Recovered Operations is nowhere near finished because of the pace it's going at right now, but we hope to change that.

And now over to some level design shots. These are taken inside the Counter Terrorism training complex. Upon doing story related work we decided that the introduction of the game could of had a whole lot more to it, so we went ahead and did just that.
Level design done by the one and only, Jack M.

But not any kind of sound design.
Remember Nox Aeterna? Their sound programmer, David M. has recently joined forces with us and is now crafting the finest experience there is to have in Recovered Operations when it comes to sound, joined by Jack M's beautiful sound design.
These two pieces of sound art is by our lovely, David M.
