Every Secret is Protected by a Lie

Resurgence: The Union goes back to Black Mesa Research Facility to dig into the yet untold tale of one of the survivors during the feral day when Resonance Cascade incident occured. Darryl Brooks - a Security Force officer stranded alone in the now hostile environment is forced to decide whether to save his own life or follow the rules of his initial job and save the others.

Setting

In The Union you will experience the disaster from the perspective of Darryl Brooks - a Security Officer who is now caught in between right and wrong, trying to escape from the impending doom. Serving as a demo for the main game formula, The Union provides you with the reduced Resurgence features like Weapon Lockers, Original set of Characters, it's own Storyline and more!


Key Features

» Unique short story
» Original Characters
» Original Soundtrack
» Weapon Lockers
» Set in Black Mesa
» New Shaders



Requirements

Mouse, keyboard, monitor and semi-decent computer. And Steam. That's all.



Backstory of the project

The Union acts as spinoff and a demo of the main game at the same time - it will give you an idea of how the Resurgence will look like while presenting it's own short story instead of using the main game levels. Development of this little project is basically like roasting two chickens on one stick - you get to visit the universe sooner than expected and we are able to produce some of the main game assets on the way.

Another year means time for another yearly august update. We've got some important (and as per usual, bittersweet) announcements to share with you, so let's jump straight to it.

As we have talked over the history of Resurgence and its development last year, we used to have a habit of being overambitious which is why most projects go down. Despite having a very tiny team, we have decided to persist and keep this project alive. However it didn't happen without some sacrifices, as we started cutting content and refining our ideas to make the game shorter and more manageable to develop for such a small team. It didn't take long to realize that if we kept cutting so much content, soon enough Resurgence would become merely a shell of its former self. After some discussing we've finally made a decision which was floating around for a few years now. So, we are a bit heart broken to announce that Resurgence will not premiere in its originally intended full-game standalone format. Instead, we are switching to an episodic format - say hello to Anthology - a five-part game set in the universe of Half-Life which will take you on the journey surrounding the Uprising of City 37 with each of the episodes providing a different point of few on the conflict.Each episode serves as a short story complete with their own protagonists, different settings, themes and gameplay opportunities. This way we will be able to handle the amount of content we want to provide without worrying about being stuck in the development hell for another 6 years. At this moment we are not quite ready to talk about details regarding each episode, but we will share more information in the upcoming update. What we can say is that we have some fairly cool things up our sleeve, and with the new format we will be able to experiment with some gameplay features which will make each episode a bit different and add more variety to the gameplay. Also, it is worth mentioning that this format will allow us to react to your experiences with the game and adjust the future episodes based on the reception. Everything has a silver lining in the end, right?

Oh, and in case you were wondering what happened to our side project - Resurgence: The Union - then don't worry. The Union has been merged with Resurgence and will premiere as one of the episodes.



Also, we'd like to apologize for the lack of the grand-sized update we promised last year. Though we've been piling up the content for it in the past 18 months, there are still a few missing puzzle pieces we need to get done before the content we want to share with you could be considered polished enough to show off. The Grand Update which is going to provide a proper insight into the newest iteration of Resurgence we've been working at since 2017 is planned to happen sometime in early 2019 - so don't worry, you won't have to wait another full 12 months to hear more from us! And because of the amount of content we've been piling up, this update is going to be absolutely gigantic. But we don't want to keep you hanging and dry until it arrives, so how about a little tease?


Thank you for your support and understanding the circumstances. We're exited to see what the future has in store, and we hope to hear your thoughts on the matter. Thanks again for sticking around and have a great day!

I've added [OUTDATED] tag to all media content which is does not represent the current version of the game. Hope it helps avoid any further confusion.

Resurgence: The Union is set exclusively during the Black Mesa Incident, in pre-Combine era.

Also, it is worth mentioning that Combine Overworld is extremely hostile to human life and since we are not messing too much with the established canon, I think it's safe to assume that the answer to your question is sadly no.

Did you ever look at a mod called Operation Lambda?

It sounds familiar but I do not remember it to be honest.

Back in 2010 - 2015, there was a mod called Operation lambda, it look really interesting. It was about a Black Mesa employee who vanished in the black mesa incident, he was thrown of into the combine home-world and he had to escape. it looked really good, but the creator cancelled it. It would be really cool if it was revived by other developers. its page is still open on moddb: Moddb.com.
