Based on the Marc Laidlaw short story--Epistle 3--Boreal Alyph aims to capture Valveā€™s lost vision, and bring a fun, and satisfying end to the celebrated Half-Life series. Epistle 3 is a synopsis of Half-Life 2: Episode 3, written by ex-Valve writer, Marc Laidlaw. Since its publication in the the 25th of August, 2017, Half-Life fans at Keep Away From Fire have been working hard to bring Epistle 3 to life in the source engine.

Re-branded our team from Borderworld Software to Keep Away From Fire. This is our new logo:

Some things have been programmed and modeled already, but we don't have quite enough to show. We'll bring you those when they're ready to be shown. For now, take a look at these concept pieces.
