The summer has already passed, and in the first day of autumn we prepared our last media release for you. Why will it be the last one? We're sure that the next article about the development progress will not be required due to the mod`s release is close.

We want to warn you, the entire Azure Sheep remake is divided into two large parts. You've already seen the Demo version of the first part, now we're moving closer to the release of it's Full version. It took us a year and a half to work on this project. It consists of twenty maps. We think it will take about three hours of gameplay to finish the mod.

Compared to the original, our work got a lot of different and interesting ideas, and we will be interested in the public’s reaction to everything that will be presented to you. We expanded the mod so much that it's now more than just the exact remake of the original. In 2019, it is foolish not to expand the narrative part.

Work, Work and Work


So, what's our team doing right now?

- We are currently testing, testing and testing again, fixing bugs and inaccuracies on the maps.

- The construction is completed, we only improve the maps that are already done and expand maps where possible (to make our mappers busy).

We also have the good news - we will include more voice acting. Now the players will be able to better plunge into what is happening and find answers to some question.

As of the release of the modification - we will be waiting for the Black Mesa Xen to release first. Then, after a month of fixing and polishing - we will release the first part. We've already encountered a few problems caused by the latest Xen update, so it will take us some time to test everything again.

Soon we will release an article about the plans and prospects of our team.

Stay tuned!

which means you either used an existing mod on the Steam Workshop or you made the whole thing up in an attempt to get some attention.

When I compare this game to Renegade-X, Starcraft Mass Recall and the upcoming Warcraft: Armies of Azeroth, they have more quality advantages over this one overall and even those are free to play and download. I am not paying a single cent for this indie game even when Xen is released despite under the Source Engine 2013 and limited multiplayer. Probably by then when this game is finished the graphics will be outdated compared to the more developed Unreal Engine 3 and 4 games, free or not.

I am already utterly disappointed with the developers using Valve's permission to sell the remake even when it's not worth anything at all.

Comparing FPS to RTS is nonsense but I kinda gleaned a different meaning of "as a remake i don't see the point because by the time its done it'll still look dated" which is totally fair.

Um. Excuse me, but it seems more like FPSs aren't your cup of tea than the game being low quality as all the games you compared this to are RTS not FPSs. It is more proper to compare this to games like DOOM and COD. Also, graphics aren't everything. Who gives a **** whether a game is made in Source, Unreal, Unity, or any other engine (unless it is some crap engine made by 3 russians in a basement)

What is the difference between this mod and the one on Steam?
Why should I spend 19.99$?
Are both the same?

this mod is now officially dead.

The steam version will include mutiplayer, lastest updates and xen.

I personally fell like this is a game, because of all the original content the devs made to it.

If some modder that made his mod free come and say "**** you, they reused assets!" Also remember that The Stanley Parable ALSO used some assets, but still is a game and an awesome one. Why all this rage? Honestly they have spent 8 years on this and I wouldn't mind paying 20$ since this is a great title and almost everyone on the america is full of money.

(The rest of the comment wasn't for you, but mostly to the people who say this sucks, sorry any disturbance).

The mods not dead, they already said they are going to port over fixes and other things from the steam release to the mod when they get the time to.

No, why would they update the mod that was going to be Free in the first place? No you have to buy it so you get the priviledge, go, feed them money!

No. They are not planning to release any bug fixes of continue to support it as stated on their Steam FAQ Steamcommunity.com
"Will the mod be updated with Xen and other features when it’s finished?
Unfortunately it is impossible to backport our new features to the mod engine. With the retail version we have access to parts of the engine we could not touch in the mod version."

Yet i'm pretty sure there will be some modders who will try as best they can to port Xen to mod version)) Not saying it will look and work well, probs even a bit broken but it's possible!
