Half Life turned 10 a week or so ago, and it’s only fitting that the boys behind Black Mesa would release something (unfortunately not the bloody game) to commemorate the occasion. Just to give a bit of background; Black Mesa is a complete reimagining of the orignal Half Life, with entirely new textures, models and sounds. They’re basically rebuilding the game in the new Source engine, and understandably that’s taking quite a long time. I recently played through the original thanks to the Anniversary Deal on Steam, and I have to say I’m very, very eagerly awaiting this. Even 10 years on, it’s bloody good fun.
Hit the jump for their new media.
So they’ve released a trailer for the reworking, and frankly, it’s a bit astonishing. Particularly the scene with the tentacle monster… they’ve taken the original scene and expanded it to be really something quite special. I’m not really sure what else there is to say. Just enjoy:
