A quick message on the current developments (or lack-there-of).

It's been a while since any news was posted here, so I thought I'd keep you all in the loop on what is going on. Normally I would come with new media every few months but to jump right in: there is nothing new to show. And here is why:

Over the last two years I've been having health issues and they have grown worse over the last months to a point where I can't sit in front of a screen longer than an hour. On good days I can extend that time a little and on bad days I'm plagued with terrible headaches throughout the entire day. As you might expect, this leaves little room for serious dedication to developing a MOD such as BM:Uplink.

Back when I started with the remake of my MOD, I really wanted to push myself and deliver something far more awesome than the 2012 version but this takes a huge effort, lots and lots of hours of designing, redesigning and nitpicking which I'm just not capable of at the moment. I'm still doing some design work for a simple Goldsrc project but there is a far less pressure riding on that, than on BM:Uplink.

So, I'm officially putting the MOD on hiatus. I can't estimate when or if I'll be able to come back to it, since my situation isn't improving much. Let's hope 2020 has something good in stock for me and I'll be able to at least play Black Mesa: Xen when it's finally done. I was thrilled at announcement of HL:Alyx too but I had to realise that wearing VR gear will not be good for me now.

Anyway, thanks for reading and if you like my work (and if you haven't played it yet), be sure to check out Half-Life: Anti-Climax, which I released last May.

Take care of yourself, dude, in the meantime I'll check out Anticlimax.
BTW Those alien Controllers sound like ghosts this time round and I hear they're doing the finishing touches on Nihilanth and Endgame.

That's life bro. Always something in the way of your goal. In this scenario, there isn't even much you can do about it.

All that where to matter now is your health though. Let's hope you get better to keep doing what you like!
