The Core is a classic retelling of the events surrounding the Resonance Cascade disaster from a new perspective. Featuring intense action, complex puzzles and believable narrative, through all-new locations within the Black Mesa Research Facility.

RSS Spring 2020 Update

While we have been continuing to work on The Core, there has been some additional strain due to recent events. In light of this, we have come to the point where we deemed it necessary to adjust our target release date of September 2020.

Happy New Year to you all! Yes, this is our first official update in the year of 2020. We've been working all out on The Core in order to get it ready for another wave of internal testing, aiming for a final public release as we move into the final quarter of 2020.

However, as you might imagine, there has been some additional strain on the development due to recent global events. In light of this, we have come to the point where we deemed it necessary to adjust our target release date from September 30th, 2020 and push things back by six months. We are now aiming for March 31st, 2021.

The Core Spring Update 2020

Back in September 2018, we set the release date for a year later, confident that we could achieve this goal. However, it goes without saying that the start of 2020 has been quite eventful. Both Archie and I have had to make significant changes to our schedules with regards to working from home and, in my case, home schooling my children once the work day is over. It's had a significant impact on our free time.

Having said that, I have adopted a more open approach to the level design process during this final stretch, actively streaming the development of sections that were not received as well as others during our internal testing period. If this is something you would like to catch a glimpse of, I can be found over on Twitch under the channel name Urbanebula

More updates to come soon. All the best and stay safe.

The health, should always be the most important thing, so take your time! A few months, or even years, is not a big problem at all.

Take as long as you need. Make it into what you like and do a good release.

You've passed the HL3-like hype line anyways. We're expecting you to release a PERFECT mod >:)

It is alright, I respect the choice you made, I was also wondering if a WON (or Retail CD Half-Life) Version of the Core is also in the works? I have both Steam and Won versions of Half-Life
