Another year means time for another yearly august update. We've got some important (and as per usual, bittersweet) announcements to share with you, so let's jump straight to it.

As we have talked over the history of Resurgence and its development last year, we used to have a habit of being overambitious which is why most projects go down. Despite having a very tiny team, we have decided to persist and keep this project alive. However it didn't happen without some sacrifices, as we started cutting content and refining our ideas to make the game shorter and more manageable to develop for such a small team. It didn't take long to realize that if we kept cutting so much content, soon enough Resurgence would become merely a shell of its former self. After some discussing we've finally made a decision which was floating around for a few years now. So, we are a bit heart broken to announce that Resurgence will not premiere in its originally intended full-game standalone format. Instead, we are switching to an episodic format - say hello to Anthology - a five-part game set in the universe of Half-Life which will take you on the journey surrounding the Uprising of City 37 with each of the episodes providing a different point of few on the conflict.Each episode serves as a short story complete with their own protagonists, different settings, themes and gameplay opportunities. This way we will be able to handle the amount of content we want to provide without worrying about being stuck in the development hell for another 6 years. At this moment we are not quite ready to talk about details regarding each episode, but we will share more information in the upcoming update. What we can say is that we have some fairly cool things up our sleeve, and with the new format we will be able to experiment with some gameplay features which will make each episode a bit different and add more variety to the gameplay. Also, it is worth mentioning that this format will allow us to react to your experiences with the game and adjust the future episodes based on the reception. Everything has a silver lining in the end, right?

Oh, and in case you were wondering what happened to our side project - Resurgence: The Union - then don't worry. The Union has been merged with Resurgence and will premiere as one of the episodes.

Also, we'd like to apologize for the lack of the grand-sized update we promised last year. Though we've been piling up the content for it in the past 18 months, there are still a few missing puzzle pieces we need to get done before the content we want to share with you could be considered polished enough to show off. The Grand Update which is going to provide a proper insight into the newest iteration of Resurgence we've been working at since 2017 is planned to happen sometime in early 2019 - so don't worry, you won't have to wait another full 12 months to hear more from us! And because of the amount of content we've been piling up, this update is going to be absolutely gigantic. But we don't want to keep you hanging and dry until it arrives, so how about a little tease?

Thank you for your support and understanding the circumstances. We're exited to see what the future has in store, and we hope to hear your thoughts on the matter. Thanks again for sticking around and have a great day!

Chapters we have showcased so far are set very early in the story, so there is not a lot of damage done to the city... yet ;) Thanks for the feedback tho, as we are constantly improving!

So. Quite impressive. This game look well so far. I'm very interested. I have some questions :
1.When the mod will be ready to download? (a date please)
2.Will there be any translations, as french, spanish or whatever ?
3.Will there be a multiplayer?

Just - in the gameplay video, at 2:00 you can see Breen's head with "Resist" written down. Is Breen the admin of City 37 too ? Because this is quite illogical. If not the game is wicked sick, ultragood and all the things after.
Waiting for it !

Thanks for being interesed in this game! (it's not technically a mod anymore since it was Greenlit in Dec 2014)

1. I couldn't tell you or anyone else, and I won't. And I don't mean to be rude - we simply don't know. Quality is most important. The game is still in very early stage of development, so you shouldn't expect it anytime soon (certainly not 2015-2017)

2. As it states on the official website, no. But it might change in the future.

3. No.

4. Breen's title is Global Administrator of Earth, he is technically in charge of every city. But he does not appear in Resurgence (he couldn't anyway since it takes place shortly after the events of HL2EP2). I cannot say anything else as it would be a spoiler, you will find the answer in the game once you play it tho ;)
