The Core is a total conversion single-player mod for Half-Life. Survive the disaster as Maurice Andrews, a low level engineer stationed in Black Mesa during the events of the resonance cascade. Seemingly trapped, Andrews must fight his way to the surface to survive.
We promised a media release in June and that's exactly what we're announcing!

The executive floor of the Central Administration Building is full of laminate flooring, thick carpets and shiny glass. It reeks of excess and you'll probably feel no sympathy for the men who work here. Well, worked here.
This is the first evidence that the alien invasion is not contained to the Anomalous Materials Lab. The admin building has begun to succumb to the onslaught of aliens and military alike, as both forces struggle to gain a foothold in this major Black Mesa location.
The player will have to decide whether the enemies are worth the ammo, as a valid tactic here is to hope that the two deadly forces are too distracted fighting each other to waste much time chasing the player. Don't bet on it, though.
Pacing and atmosphere are the key words here, as careful sneaking and puzzle solving will be peppered with short, intense moments of extreme action. As always, I really, really appreciate any and all feedback on my work, so let me know what you think! If you think something looks rubbish - it probably does and I've overlooked it, so please tell me about it! :)
