A Red Letter Day

It is with much excitement that I am finally able to reveal why things have been just so quiet around these parts since late last year.  Black Mesa, the mod project I have been involved with, as a environment modeler and texture artist since early 2007 is finally coming out! Yesterday we announced our planned release date of September 14th 2012.

Black Mesa Power Up

The whole team has been involved in pretty intensive polishing and testing in preparation for this release. This hasn’t left so much time for personal (non-Black Mesa) projects, which is why things have gone somewhat quiet around here.

Below is the official statement released by Carlos Montero (Project Lead) on our forums:

We’re freaking out over here! It is so exciting to share this news with you!

You can now Download the Black Mesa Soundtrack, courtesy of our very own Joel Nielsen, at the very generous price of whatever you want! Enjoy and share!
In the near future you’ll see our Website, Wiki and Forums all taken down temporarily for renovations.
On September 14th you will see the first release of Black Mesa! This will include our re-envisioning of Half-Life all the way up to Lambda Core. We believe this is a great way to provide a complete-feeling 8-10 hour experience with a solid ending, make our fans happy and help us make the best overall game possible.

We are still working hard on Xen and BMDM, but instead of making you wait we are giving you Black Mesa as soon as it’s ready! We’re doing our best to help bring the immense vision of this project into reality, and we are very excited for what the future brings!

High-Fives Yo,
Carlos Montero – Project Leader

    Awesome work!
    I am quite excited ^_^
    To this day Half-Life stands as my favourite single player FPS. After all these years, it seems that the title of favourite will finally pass to another game – Black Mesa.

    Much respect, I’ll watch this blog with interest for years to come.
