Poll Question 226 – If Valve released a novel based on the HL universe, would you buy it?

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

As you probably know, I ran a fan fiction competition last year and it was pretty successful, at least I thought so. Anyway, a little investigation (my name is Phillip Marlowe!) finds that actually there is an awful lot of Half-Life fan fiction about.

This got me thinking whether Valve should release some official stuff and if they did would you actually buy it. I don’t mean download it, but actually pay money for paper!

ES

Simply find you way out of Black Mesa.

Just don’t expect an easy time of it!

Apparently, there are 2 Easter Eggs in this map and only one can be found with Noclip.

My Black Mesa

for Half-Life

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

A short map that takes place in some part of Black Mesa.

You meet a variety of enemies and your goal is to escape.

Of course, nothing turns out as you expect it.

Surface Run

for Half-Life

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

The scenario is simple: Save your own skin and get to the surface.

Based in Black Mesa, you get to see a small part of the underground facility and even a quick trip to Xen, if you look in the right place.
