Escapade

for Black Mesa

The transit system had taken Gordon to within a whisker of the surface, and safety.

However the military, ostensibly there to rescue the facilities personnel, had cut power to all the surface access doors.

The test reactor housed in Area 3’s nearby laboratories offered a solution to this predicament.

If Gordon could fire it up he should be able to redirect power to the access doors from the control room.

The way ahead was dangerous, but with luck this would be the final escapade.

Author’s Note

Escapade is the (belated) follow up to my previous maps, Overtime and Quarantine. This will most likely be the conclusion to the series. Building all three has been a big learning experience and any feedback is most welcome.

    It’s been a while since I played and recorded any Black Mesa maps and I have always enjoyed JamaicanDave’s work and this was no different.

    It seems to me that each release builds on the last and this one shows higher levels of detail than anything I can previously remember playing from JD.

    The interactions with enemies are perhaps less but each is more important.

    This map features a fairly convoluted layout but is linear nevertheless. Visuals and environmental elements are both well done and the overall feel of the map is that there is nothing extra added – giving it a feeling of tightness.

    There might be some areas that I didn’t get to and that alone makes a replay worth it, along with the fact I only played on EASY and want to challenge myself on a higher difficulty setting.

    I have little doubt you will enjoy this release and, like me, will be left wanting more from JD.

    Another BM mod, keep them coming! I wish more people would make BM mods.

    A very enjoyable little BM map. It looked terrific and was fun to play. I too wish more people made stuff for the BM universe!

    Nice Map! I love this Black Mesa! Is it possible to enter the Security office with the eye scanner? I couldn’t get that..

    1. JamaicanDave

      There might be a way 😉

    Nice one, you could of put it a little harder but it was still good work man!

    I pretty solid and straight forward map.

    Pro:
    -Nice design
    -increasing difficulty yet overall throughout the level to easy (died only once due to grunts.)
    -Small plot in which you got to activate a generator in order to unlock additional doors for your escape.
    -Few scripted sequences and vox messages.

    Contra:
    -To short and best suited for any coffee break.
    -To easy 3/4 of the mod consists of headcrabs and Zombies only and the rest of it of few grunts. Besides an easy to kill bullsquid no other monsters were used not counting friendly scientists.

    All in all a solid nice looking map with smooth frame rates and decent game play.

    I can’t recall anything I played 1 day ago, glad I record the gameplay.

    Map is short, probably same length as Quarantine and Overtime. Might even shorter because Quarantine took me over 20 minutes while this one took me only 15 minutes.(Either short or I’m good at Black Mesa mods suddenly)

    Whole mod is like a walk in the park, A three-year-old playing this won’t die once until encountering the grunts, and you can just run past them like nothing if you have enough health.

    I should play this in hard.

    I know I’m criticizing this mod quite a lot here. Still, I say PIL because this isn’t that bad compare to some maps in Steam workshop. Anyway, I hope I can see some mods like Stalwart made by the same author.

    By the way, what’s up with that scanner door?
