The Shiftreturns to the setting and timeline of the original story featuring the ubiquitous Black Mesa Research Facility security guard Barney Calhoun. As Barney, the player attempts to escape the alien invasion caused by the resonance cascade and the ensuing military cover-up. The Shift begins in a similar manner to Half-Life, as Barney Calhoun rides a tram through the Black Mesa facility to reach his place of work. After reporting for duty, Calhoun is instructed to assist in maintenance on a malfunctioning elevator. As Calhoun finishes repairs, however, Freeman's experiment takes place and results in a "resonance cascade", causing massive damage to the facility and teleporting alien creatures into the base. The elevator is badly damaged and fails, sending Calhoun plummeting into the depths of Black Mesa.
I've recently started to work on the third chapter of The Shift! My early beginning can be previewed on a video I've recently uploaded to the mod's page. The level in the video is still a work in progress and is still being worked on. I haven't quite started on the security sector part. The bit where you get your pistol and get in the elevator with the two scientists. I wanted to jump ahead a little to where some of the action starts! I'll probably get back to the security sector once chapter three is finished.
Another thing, giving you guys quick updates isn't all that practical with Moddb. However Moddb is perfect for news such as this post here. But sometimes I just want give a short, quick update like, "Working on chapter three!" or maybe "We're in the top 100 mods list! Woohoo!" So I went ahead and created a Facebook fangpage for any of you Facebook users out there. On the fanpage I will post silly development pictures, quick updates and things along those lines.
