So I might as well post about my current project here finally, since I've been doing so on the Discord for awhile now. Half-Life: Dark Matter is designed as if there was a fourth and final expansion to the original Half-Life from the perspective of a Black Operator named Kovac. I got the idea when I was replaying Half-Life for the 20th anniversary in 2018, I realised that although the Black Ops had appeared in a couple of mods, they certainly weren't done real justice, so I decided I would be the one to deliver it...
Since then it's evolved a fair bit, and I have seven others in a team working with me now, including brand new code! There will lots of new areas and also crossovers with existing areas as well, and the story will not only be in keeping with Half-Life 1, but also Half-Life 2 and even Alyx where appropriate!
This is my last ever Goldsource project*, upon completion I will be moving onto a newer and more modern game project, what that will be exactly is not known right now. Most of you guys know I've been working with Half-Life 1 for almost 22 years now, so I've got the experience and knowledge to pull this off, and the others have extensive skills in the field as well!

Anyway, it wouldn't be the WIP thread without some WIPs, so here's a bunch of screenshots, more on the page above obviously!
I'll post more enviroments here as I make them! Enjoy.
*I might still work on something smaller for fun, if an idea arrises
Hey guys. The Gap, an exploration game I'm working on, now finally has a Steam store page!
Check it out and wishlist here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1458300/The_Gap/
We also have a new trailer:
He has the freedom to do it, I doubt it was an intentional plan to create some sort of controversy. Often you think of themes that are cool or aren't done often in your mind, and you just roll with it. Just look at every video game that has at a bar or a nightclub, what's the big deal?
I see nothing wrong with this. I think self-censoring yourself in fear of dissenting opinions is really weak.
