Half-Life’s Agonising Remake Still On, New Screens Released
In development for around eight years now, the fan-made remake of the original Half-Life, known as Black Mesa, is almost a punchline for the torment followers of the series as a whole are feeling at its lack of updates.
The developers of the project are still plugging away, though, and have this morning released a bunch of new screenshots for Black Mesa, reminding us all that it's still not out, and that it's still looking great.
Introducing the Source Filmmaker
Valve has just introduced the Source Filmaker and is currently taking sign-ups for the beta. Just FYI, you'll need to have Steam installed to get in on the beta.
