On the 10th anniversary of the release of Valve’s original Half Life, mod team Black Mesa Modification has released a slew of new work in progress screenshots of their detailed remake of the game in the current Orange Box engine, which, if the mod ever sees the day, will easily lead to our third or fourth playthrough. Says the team:

2008 has been a very eventful year for us. Making a 12+ hour game is a monumental task, but we’re still powering ahead with development and making great progress. Our programmers have been hard at work overhauling and expanding the AI, and lots of our NPCs have been brought to life by our talented voice actors. Levels and chapters continue to be worked on and fine tuned, with large sections strung together and playable.


Last but not least, the team worked very hard to get a trailer out along with all the other media. But as we’ve always done when faced with the choice, we decided to take a few extra days to polish it to a mirror shine before releasing it to the community. Be sure and look for that in the days ahead!

A celebration of the last decade! [Black Mesa Modifications]
