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.

Before you read, nothing is cancelled. We will, however, need some helping hands to speed development up.

I like the idea but sadly, looks like this project is dead...
Last month I started to work on a Fan remake for this game. Not sure if there gonna be a community supporting this. I just started spamming my project on YT, Reddit, GameJolt and Facebook and here.

I know that having legal problems with the ip holder, can cause a shut down. That is why I am working on a Prototype of a Remake and on a script inspired by this game (A Trilogy that will start at dulce base and the pact seen in this game)
But i need support, I am doing all from scratch, and you know, time = money... But i am not asking for money (for now) just support to build a solid community arround this.

Not sure if I am allowed to put links on comments... but you can search for the project on Gamejolt ("Midway Area 51 Fan Remake")

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.

Hi Bach, I am actually looking into possibly rebooting Area 51 and even purchasing the rights to the IP so that a proper remake along with other improvements can be realized and finally put into action after all this time. At this moment nothing but talk is happening, people are coming together to discuss actually pursuing such a humongous task that will require a lot of man power to create.

If you're genuinely interested in the prospect of a remake, please PM me on my ModDB account! Until next time.

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.

Please refer to the recently added header at the top of the page. There is a reason for the lack of updates. Sorry!

I deleted some media from the images because it's getting redone. Don't freak out, some things are still staying until they're replaced immediately.

Elaborate. Did the original Area-51 go open source, or?
