Another take on the Black Mesa disaster, seen through the eyes of James Walker, a scientist caught up in the chaos during the resonance cascade.

This mod will use original HL textures and LD models for a more "classic" feel. It will also feature new textures or skins in the same style.


1. Initiation
2. Dimensional Breach
3. Access Denied
4. The Cavalry
5. Override
6. Up and Out

7. Into the night

Feedback is much appreciated so please let me know what you think. :)

Notice: Unfortunately, I am going to have to put this project on hold for the time being. I haven't been able to make any significant progress in the last few months and I fear it will be the same story for a few more.

I want to thank everyone who is watching the mod and hopefully I can treat you all to an update at some point in the future.

It has been a long time since I posted an update but sadly a great number of things have gotten in the way, meaning that this mod had to sit on the back burner for a while.

While I do hope to most more media soon, there is a chance that I won't be able to work on this very often for reasons which I would rather not go into here.

However, let's focus on right now.

Lower Labs & Tributes Lower Labs & Tributes

I have updated the page with a couple of new screenshots, one of which is a bog standard promotional shot of one of the areas I have been working on. The lower labs are dark and dank and unfortunately for Walker, that's where he was assigned on the day of the resonance cascade.

The second shot is more of a tribute to many great mods such as Heart of Evil and Life's End which featured a similar feature. There will be messages and notices dotted around various maps which can be completely overlooked by the player who prefers to blast their way though the levels without pause for thought. For those who do take the time to read the notes, they will be given hints as to where they might find ammo, a new weapon, or secret areas containing Easter eggs and such.

That's all for now. I just thought that I should post SOMETHING so that people don't lose faith in the mod and will continue to check it out as and when it is updated.

Level design going well... on paper.

I've been planning a lot of the mod out on paper, rather than diving straight into hammer and mapping whatever came into my head. While this means there...

I was a little sceptical about starting another Gold Source mod. When you consider that the engine is around 14 years old it seems mad to start mapping...

No worries dude. You continue whenever you find the time to do so. It's the same story with my mod. I started, I stopped, i started and so on. Just make sure it never dies entirely as you've put so much work into it already.

I see whatta you're trying to do, but it's a simplicity overkill. Even original HL looks more detailed...

That all depends on where you're looking. Some areas of HL1 are painfully lacking detail, or even just basic logic. Thanks for the input. :)
