Core-istmas 2015

First of all, I would like to apologise for the terrible article title. I'm looking to get a job in journalism and apparently that is what they like to do...

Now, let's get down to business. Where is The Core? We know that things have been awfully quiet on our little mod page. Trust me, we know as much as anyone that it is awful when you don't hear anything. 2015 has indeed been a very busy year for the SnC team. While work has been continuing on The Core, we've taken to working behind the scenes, rather than publishing every little thing and posting a news article every time something significant comes up. We've been focusing on the ACTUAL MOD, rather than just trying to promote it. Having said that, here are a couple of recent shots to confirm that we are still powering through

Christmas 2015 Christmas 2015


It is for this very reason that we have remained relatively quiet during the MOTY voting period. While we are very happy to have gotten into the Top 100 upcoming mods for the past four years, we simply do not feel we have done enough in the last twelve months to deserve it, and it seems you agree.

We know that The Core has been in development for a LOOONG time, after all, we were there for most of it... and we know some of you are getting impatient with our consistent dodging of the whole 'release date' issue, but stay tuned.

2016 is looking to be a very promising year.

Hope you all have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year

Urby and the SnCGames team

So another year has come and gone. It was roughly one year ago that we dropped our first gameplay trailer on the internet and nothing could have prepared...

Looks awesome, though it would be 100 times better if you had used the "Black Mesa Source" graphics engine.

I have to agree. While this project looks amazing. FPS game engines age fast and a switch to the Source 1 engine would have made the interesting level design and AI fights even more impressive.

@Milanium: I totally don't agree with you. As the developers says, it's almost impossible for them to move on the Source engine, secondly Black Mesa engine has also flaws: it is slow, and the gameplay is really different from the HL one. That's enough reasons for me to think that this mod will be at his best on the Goldsource engine.

I think it looks realy awesome on the goldscreen engine ,source might be a better looking engine but these guys may be very proud of themselves with what they did with the goldscreen engine it looks way better then half life!

True, true. It definitely looks way better than the original games graphic engine. Will this be a stand-alone game or one that needs the original loaded?

I'm afraid that you will need to own Half-Life on steam to play the mod.

That would also mean that it wouldn't be out until around 2019 since we'd need to start from scratch. Black Mesa was a dot on the horizon when this project started.

If it was as simple as flicking a switch we would have done so by now, trust me. :P

Voted for ya! I love this project so much. P.S. i think i heard one of those bloop sounds from half life's multiplayer chat system at the end of the trailer. What are you folks up to?!!
