Big day today.

I think it's time to tell you guys that I've been, for a couple of months now, part of the Operation Black Mesa / Guard Duty development team (Tripmine Studios).

What is OBM / GD?
Like the Black Mesa mod, they are remakes of the Half-Life expansions Opposing Force and Blue Shift.

What do I do there?
I'm mainly the new composer for Operation Black Mesa, as all the previous ones jumped ship.
Also, I'm a web developer and sound designer.

So, today we put Operation Black Mesa on Greenlight. The games will be completely free, like Black Mesa, and voting for them on Greenlight is only beneficial for everyone. So go ahead and give us your like. :)

Along with some Greenlight media we plan to release step by step over the next couple of days, we have just launched our brandnew website (completely designed by yours truly) and community forum.
So, head on over and populate this shit!
And perhaps discover my "real" name in the process...

So, if you've liked Black Mesa and you want more, you want this.

(Small sidenote: I haven't released any of my tracks yet. That might change very soon...)

This is amazing, Jannic. I hope it will be a success, like Black Mesa. I'm convinced it will, those screenshots look great. Also, same question as Blackheart's.

Amazing indeed! How will the score be? Like the original one? Or more like the one in Black Mesa? Or something entirely new?

Thanks for your support, guys!

As for a release date, nobody of us can speculate even an approximate timeframe at this point.

In a few day's time, one of my tracks will be released. It'll give you a rough idea.

Awesome news: We are in the top 100 and consistently climbing. In terms of "yes" votes, we've shot through the roof and exceeded all average yes votes for titles in the top 100.

We're pretty confident it will be greenlit sooner than later, which will help, enrich and facilitate development a great deal. Also we're planning on releasing a teaser trailer some time soonish.

Been having a blast with Black Mesa(Having never played the Half-Lifes before HL2) and I want more of that in HD.


And free.
Free is nice.

So that's why you kept linking that site xD.

Awesome! Now I should really get my stuff together and play Black Mesa + this :P!

I think we should hook up an AI to the servers which is able to detect retards, displaying a message to them that they have to insert a coin to play.

Fantastic news though Unforeseen, glad things are going great, not encountered any black mesa-ish mishaps yet then?

You can always apply here. :)

And as far as I can tell, we haven't had any major setbacks or problems up to this point. We've announced a multiplayer beta / demo for Q1 2014, so let's see how that turns out.

Can't spill too many beans here, so don't quote me on any of this. These are possibilities, not givens.
We're looking at things like:
- Steam Achievements
- Cross Platform support
- A better HUD
- Smooth launch without website downtime
- Multiplayer enhancement
- General tools to help us along the way

Does the budget for the game come from the grenlit thing?

I see loads of upcoming games on Kickstarter nowadays. This one for example did well http://www.kickstart...des-of-numenera

Is Kickstarter a possiblity for this game as well?
