Black Mesa Source–the ambitious project to remake Half Life–has been dormant for some time now. Announced way back in 2008, the project has since pulled a Versus 13 by showing little footage in a span of a few years. Gamers have begun to lose faith in the project ever seeing the light of day–after all this was being developed by fans and they aren’t exactly getting paid to do it.
But today brings some glimmer of hope.
Yes, it’s alive and looking very healthy. Unfortunately we don’t know how old this footage really is and it seems odd that this wasn’t posted on the official Black Mesa YouTube channel leaving room to wonder. At the same time it could be the case of it just being leaked ahead of time without the devs knowing.
I just hope that things are still going smoothly with Black Mesa Source. I can’t handle the thought of not being able to play it after watching those 3 minutes of bliss.
