Greetings!I hope you all had a great start to 2022. We sure did! And even if most of us had spent our holiday time with families and close friends, we haven´t stopped working hard on Operation: Black Mesa and Guard Duty.


As always, it was hell of a ride for us at Tripmine Studios. This year was once again very important in regards to the progress. Not only that we are pumping out assets, keeping on assembling levels, but we have also managed to bring a lot of important new features to the Source engine, such as PBR rendering. Thanks to enormous efforts from our programming team, Source Engine looks better than ever.

And just right for Christmas, we have launched our Steam Store page, which was a climax of our traditional "Tripmas event". What are you waiting for? Head over there, and do not forget to add us to your wishlist! The event itself brought you some extra media from our game and even more was unleashed with the Steam store launch.


If you missed the Tripmas event, you can still go scroll through our Twitter or Facebook to find out all the goodies. And do not forget to join our Discord as well.

Any news for another media announcement for 21th anniversary of Blue Shift release, next week? Just asking. If yes, I'll looking forward to it. Also, have a good day to you.

A Uplink mission was mean to be added as a "extra", back in the day but they cancelled it.

I really hope this and OBM gets to see the light of release. They've been too long in development hell.

This project is almost 15 years old if not more, and have already switched three or more teams of developers.

This project is not 15 years old lol.
Different team = different project.

The mental gymnastics that some people do to try and make them seem like the same project is very impressive.

Then why are there articles from 2006 shown in this mod/project?

Because for some strange reason our project founder thought it would be a good idea to take over the previous projects (Barneys Tales) moddb account.
The moddb account is literally the only thing that is the same. Except that even the moddb account name was changed when it was taken over.

The project is different. The team is different. The assets are different. The name is different. Literally everything is different.

Maybe this will explain it a bit better:

Well that confirms it, it's the same old project 🤣

What? You have to be trolling at this point.
A moddb account is not a project. It's simply... well... a website.

You do realize that domain names get sold and exchanged all the time, right?

Well no, You guys are still working on a Blue Shift Port/Remake on Source Engine as the previous teams were and also the same for Opposing Force, so no matter how many teams come and go the goal/project is going to be the same, so 🙄

Barney tales is a another different project, simply enough. It's like saying old Black Mesa HL2 (circa 2004-2005 era) was still developed by the same team but it ain't

I'm convinced you are just trolling at this point lol. Or you are just a very young child.

Goal and project are not the same thing. That's like saying a person has been in school for 300 years because other people before them have been in school, with the same goal to graduate lol.

If you can't realize that very simple fact then I really don't know what to tell you and I don't want to waste my time trying to educate you on very simple matters.

But I'm pretty convinced you have to be trolling at this point, so I'll just leave you be.
