TAKE NOTE: This mod is in hiatus due to a lack of contributors. If you'd like for the progress to start up again, please consider adding the head developer on her Steam account here in order to contribute in any way you possibly can. (Recommended: Modelers, animators, texture designers, and programmers)

The popular Horror shooter, Area-51 is being brought to the Source Engine. Step again into the Hazmat suit of Ethan Cole as you go on a mission through the government's most top secret base - Area 51. Accompanied by 3 HAZMATs, you make your way through the base to quarantine the deadly mutagen that infected many of the personnel of Area 51. You are soon alone, only your guns and wits to save you from what horrors await in the base...


With Source, we now have access to many features that the original Area 51 lacked. These features include, but are not limited to:
1. Superior lighting.
2. Animation blending.
3. Superb AI.
4. Proper physics.
The list goes on...


Q: Will the game have the original's story?
A: Yes; we're trying to make it as close to the original as possible.

Q: Will the game have Multiplayer?
A: Yes; the original had Multiplayer, so by all means, it will be added.

Q: How about some co-op?
A: No; the original did not have co-op, because it was meant to give the player a feeling of being alone in many situations.

Q: Are you one of the developers?
A: Yes; I'm actually the one who started the project.

Q: What additional content will be added?
A: Not much; remember that this is basically just a Source remake of the original, only with some touchups and small content addons.

Q: Will this game be available for Steam?
A: Maybe; if I can fill out the paperwork and get money, then yes. If not, then no.

Q: Will there be any additional characters?
A: No; please consult to the additional content question.

Q: Who is doing voice acting?
A: As of now, Raul Iulian Solomon, CubicTexedo, Caleb Yu, PandaRanda, and ChatNoir. You're free to apply!

Q: Can I help out with development?
A: YES; we need ALL the help we can get!

Q: Is there a predicted amount of time when the game will be released?
A: Unfortunately not; we cannot predict how long development will take.

Q: Will I get credited for only suggesting?
A: That is a maybe; depends on what you suggest.

Q: Do I need Half-Life 2 to play this?
A: No. You need Source SDK Base 2007.

Hi everyone. This will probably be the last time we ask this of our community, and I hope you guys understand where we're coming from. From the past few updates, you can probably tell we're in a bit of a rut. Well, we still are, sadly. Please refer to the last few updates to see what we really need. We will NOT be accepting Beta Testers or Audio-related jobs until the programmer, 3D, and artist positions are filled necessarily. Very sorry for the inconvenience!

Of course, drop me an add on Steam to apply, or simply comment down below and I'll get to you. My contact details are below. Take care!

Here's my Steam.

This is awesome kinda wanted a remake of area 51 as the pc version lacks quick saving and mouse smoothing.

I could lend you a hand if you want. I have some experience in 2D art and 3D modeling.

Is there a demo or something of this mod? Also, if I remember correctly there was a free download somewhere here on ModDB because Midway released the PC files before they were taken down

I have another question, what if I already have another game using SDK base 2007? Will I have to delete it or will it work along side the other one?

People using Sourcemods shouldn't ever experience having to delete a Sourcemod to play another Sourcemod.

Yes! This will be a great mod! Also will it have coop mode?

The original didn't so I'm guessing this won't HOWEVER it did have competitive multiplayer so that might be implemented.

I just started playing Area 51 and i feal like its gonna be tiny bit tricky to make this mod but i cant wait to see itin source

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

Certainly something worth a follow. I really enjoyed Area 51, and It would be really cool to see it re imagined in the source engine. Can't wait to see more updates.

Hey! We're not dead, just quiet. Not to worry, we're all alive and well. Thanks to college, I(the lead dev) was busy. But now we're back!
