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.

“Silence is a source of Great Strength.”
― Lao Tzu

Some of you may be wondering why, of all times of year, would we fall silent during the votes for Mod of the Year. The fact of the matter is, we have been working hard to prepare something for you.

We have said nothing, simply because we have had nothing to say. We are still working as hard as ever on the mod and soon, not only will we have something to say but also something to show.

I am happy to see that regardless of our lack of information released so far this month, we have still managed to secure a few votes from our followers. Last year we were happy to hear that our little project had made it into the top 100 of the most anticipated upcoming mods of the year. So happy in fact that we started reaching out to the community more than ever, especially concerning our 2 Q&A sessions in April and October

Furthermore, we have been releasing media on a steady basis and taken advantage of the constructive criticism we have received. In light of this, here are another couple of recent WIP shots for you to cast your eyes over and offer any criticism you may have.

Finally, although it is a little late in the voting phase, if we ARE lucky enough to secure a spot in the top 100 for a second year running, we will show off exactly what we have been working on for the last few months. We think it's something you're going to like. Otherwise, we will show it following the new year.

With that, I wish you all the best and if we don't have any more news before the end of the year, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and we'll see you in 2014

Happy Holidays from the Scotch & Coffee team.

Kind regards,
Urby

In my opinion, when it comes to HL1 mods you guys have little to no competition. If not THE upcoming MOTY, The Core is definitely in the top 3.

I hope we get our grubby little hands on this gem sometime next year, but don't rush it. If we can wait for Black Mesa, we can wait for The Core :)
