You play as FBI agent Jeremy Hard, who has been sent in to Black Mesa to do something (sorry, but I didn’t pay much attention to the text on the screen).

You have Freeman’s identity card, so everybody thinks you are him.

Go do what you do best – shoot enemies and press buttons!

“One of Gordy’s alternate adventures finds him in the company of a small group of scientists and a few barneys holed up in a cement bunker deep within the bowels of Black Mesa. It is shortly after the resonance cascade and as all hell breaks loose around them, they seal off the few exits, determined to work on solving the mess they’ve gotten into.

Unknown Faction

for Half-Life

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

A rather generic: “You are sent in to some base to do some thing”.

It’s not exactly Black Mesa but it looks like it.

Take your time and look everywhere.

The Art of Teasing

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

I had been thinking about this post for a few days, you know, writing different paragraphs in my head, then forgetting about it and coming back to it.

Then I played Whoopservatory (that’s gotta be one of the strangest mod names around!) and decided to sit down and write it. The reason is that Whoopservatory teases the player really well and it seems to be an art that hasn’t been used much in Source maps compared to GoldSource or even Unreal.

After the incidents at Black Mesa three years ago, Gordon Freeman was recruited by a curious FBI Agent, known simply by the common nickname given to his kind, ‘G-Man’.

Now working as a highly-trained special operative, Gordon Freeman is the only man the US Government fully trusts in highly hostile situations.

Game Saves, Steam and ModCloud

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

I have just launched Osmosis and found it has reset itself back to the beginning, meaning I have lost all my finished zones, in effect my game saves.

The game was a gift and in all honesty, unless it suddenly and miraculously gets its saves back, I won’t play it from the beginning again.
