Black Mesa: Hazard Course is an add-on for the well known Source Engine mod, Black Mesa. Using Black Mesa assets as well as much of our own custom made content, Black Mesa Hazard Course will feature a complete re-creation of Half-Life's training level, including new dialogue and voice acting, HD models, textures and detailed environments.

Report RSS Hazard Course Direction Update Update

Wherein we once again listen to our lawyers and completely change "Course".

Posted by on

Another day, another change of plans.

Earlier we announced our recent change of direction. We're here to announce that we will not actually be making a Five Nights at Freddy's themed Hazard Course. Despite the resounding, near deafening approval from the community at large, our lawyers have informed us that this isn't a legally viable direction, and some of our investors have withdrawn. As such, we will be sticking with classic Half-Life style!


We are, however, still looking for a Choreographer to breathe life into our NPCs - and we need that secured before we can finalize the Beta version! As we've said before, with a choreographer on our team, we should be able to release before the end of the year no problem.

And lastly, for those who are curious, that FNAHC video was actually a totally functional "prototype," made by project leader/level designer "dky.tehkingd.u," entirely within the Hammer editor over about a week and a half, with additional assets and VO by level designer JeffMOD. If you're interested, you can check it out, and play it for yourself right here.

(Update: Just pushed a missing texture fix. Download should be back up now. Thanks for your patience! -DKY)

Five Nights at Hazard Course

We hope it put a smile on you guys' faces. And if not, well... we'll just send Purple Man and give you a reason to keep it that way.

Until next update, good days, guys!

Why wasn't this announced 2 days earlier? The world will never know.

Because the version in the video was unwinnable. I spent the next couple of days making it actually winnable and tweaking the balance and timing to be more fair.

Should have left it seemingly, but not quite winnable >:)

Well, I mean... I myself have not been able to (legitimately) beat it yet, and I know all the internal mechanisms of how it works...

You're welcome to try it though. Good luck! :P

No,the fact that this was an April Fools joke.

We figured that since the original article went up on April first and that it was such a ludicrous announcement, that everyone would be able to figure it out.

But I guess yet again we're proved wrong?

I was thinking, "There's no way this is actually something that's functional. They wouldn't put in THAT much work for a joke." Well, ya proved me wrong. A joke only had to be so much, and here we have so much more. I applaud you.
