MadMech was interviewed last night by the webmaster of HalfLife Expert, a big French site. The interview was done in English and in french. Here is a short excerpt from the English version:
LinKuFF : Was it a big disadvantage to create a mod for an game/engine that was not yet released ?
MadMech : It's not so bad. Without the endless HL2 delays, we wouldn't have been able to finish our game design phase. With all the things that réact together in the game, it can take a while to plan it all out to perfection. We also got ahead in the art department. The development of the mod should be shorter, since we are so well prepared.
