Post news RSS Half Life Echoes - two years since release!

Two years on, and I am still getting fantastic and kind feedback.

Posted by on

Hello everyone,

I cannot believe it has been over two years since I released this. It has gone by so quickly. Furthermore, who could have foreseen the challenges and hardship this year would bring us all. I sincerely hope you are all managing okay. At the very least, things appear to be slowly improving on the whole and hopefully we are going to start seeing a brighter time ahead of us.

I still get feedback and praise about Echoes on almost a daily basis and I just wanted to make a post to thank you all for that. You all have helped lift my spirits during tough times!

Also, who could have ever imagined a new Half-Life title finally being released after so long!!! It is absolutely incredible by the way, for those of you lucky enough to have experienced it. Valve are back, and I missed them.

I have just released the source code and map files for version 1.4 as a few people had requested it - I hope you find it useful in some way.

Lastly, people have asked if I will do more modding in the future. I do have a lot of great ideas milling around, and hope to one day realise them, but being a parent takes a lot out of you! It is wonderful and exhausting, haha. I cannot wait to get my son into Half-Life but it may be some time yet...

Lastly, if you enjoyed my work and ever want to throw a little beer money my way, you can do so here:

Take care everyone, stay safe and look out for each other.

Cheers, James

Half-life Alyx Custom Campaign would be awesome =D

Happy future for you and your family!

Very kind of you!

I have had a look at the Alyx map tools actually. I never even tried out Source editing so this was a quantum leap in technology for me. I think the VR gameplay would be perfect for horror and escape room type levels...

Still one of the best Genuine Half-Life experiences on that oldie of an engine in the last 10 years if you ask me! Can't believe it's already been 2 years!

I just wanted to thank you for making such a magnificent mod. Still holds up after 2 years and definetly will continue to do so in the future. Im sure it will eventually become a mod classic like Poke 646 or Point of View.
