What's happening with hlr? Well, a lot, actually, and also not...?

Hey all

It's been almost 2 years since I wrote an article here, holy shit.

That's a long fuckin' time to be waiting for news, and that doesn't even account for the few of you who have been around since the start and have waited over 3 years for the release.

So what the hell is happening with HLR?

Well, first, let me preface this by saying that HLR is in an undeniably phenomenal state. Everyone who I've shown it to and have let try it have had nothing but good things to say about it, which makes me feel justified in taking as long as I have to get to this point.

That said, we are not close to completion. It's going to take longer to finish the vision I have for the game. Much, much longer.

So why is that? What's taking so long?

Well, to put it bluntly, I'm a busy guy. I have a busy life outside of HLR. I have a time consuming job, I have a serious relationship with my significant other, I have friends and family that I want to spend time with, and i help run the Valve Modding Community discord server. HLR is, and always has been, a passion hobby project for me, and while I work on it as much as possible, I can only spend a portion of my free time on it, and as such, it's a gradual process.


That doesn't mean that progress hasn't been made, and let me tell you right here, right now, the stuff that I've cooked up is gonna blow your FUCKING socks off. I'm currently in the process of doing the preliminary animations for a full reveal trailer, and when it's done and you see it, you'll understand. Trust me, you'll understand.

I've got some new media that I'm gonna be sharing in the coming weeks, and when the trailer is about near completion, I'll be dropping some BIG media stuff leading up to it.

HLR isn't dead. Not even close. You'll seen soon just how alive it actually is.

That's all for now, I'll write up a whole article when I get the new media sorted out and ready to be shared. For now, I'll leave you with these.

Wax out.

Take as long as you need ! It always has to be a pleasure to you to make this mod, not a pain in the *** nor even should it feel like a job. Seeing you enjoy the process is well enough for me as a futur player :)

Also I just wanted to point out that pretty much everything up to this point has been made by me, and me alone. Im not flexing or anything, I'm just trying to give some more context as to why its taken as long as it has.

Totally understandable my dude, and I'm digging the new drip that Vort is wearing. Can't wait to ruin it with a shotgun blast ;)
