Greetings, fans, players and modders alike!
Happy holidays from the Hazard Dev Team! Merry Christmas! Merry Coursemas! I'm so sorry.
As much as we hate to keep you from your candy-cane shanks, we've got some paragraphs and goodies for you.

We've been in development since shortly after Black Mesa's first release. That makes us a bit over 2 years old. In that time, our members have learned a lot, and we think it shows. Just look at the comparison images above!

While we're not exactly stoked at our development's time span, we do think that because of it, the Hazard Course that you get to experience on release will be worlds better than what you would have if some silly team members' early estimates were correct.

As we enter Beta 1, the course is prettier, longer, and overall more fun, and the end is slowly getting easier to see. At this point, our largest hurdle is choreography. We remain without any actual choreographers on the team, and we can't make use of our neat little script or voice actors without one or two. That's a huge slowdown. If we can get that sorted, we'll be ready for a release in 2015 for sure. Can you guys help us out with that? If you're a Source Choreographer or know one, why don't you check out the job page and send us an application? Sort of important!

That's all for this update, we wish you a Happy Coursemas.

Wait, one more thing.

Over the last few weeks we posted some extra shots over in our thread on the Black Mesa Forums. As a final holiday gift to ModDB, why don't you guys check them out? Hope you like them!
