Black Mesa Source Is Out Right Now

Once upon a time, there was a company called Valve. One day, Valve decided to make a game. It was called Half-Life, and it was good.

A little while after that, Valve released a new game on a new engine, called the Source engine. It was called Half-Life 2, and it was also good.

A little while still, Valve released a game called Half-Life 3… Oh, wait.

In case you don’t know, Black Mesa Source (well, technically it’s just Black Mesa now) is an 8-years-in-the-making adaptation of the original Half-Life, modded into the Source engine. Rather than a total 1:1 conversion, it is supposedly a reinterpretation of the original, seminal PC title, and it is one of the first ten titles to be Greenlit through Steam.

It is also very available, right now.

Are you as excited as I am? I know I’m downloading right now. I’m not the only one eager to play, evidently, since the website has been down intermittently since release.

You can get it from the Black Mesa website here. Download options include many mirrors and a torrent. You can also get the soundtrack. It is also, ALSO, completely, one hundred percent free.

Currently it is unreleased on Greenlight, and no word has reached us yet as to when it shall be. We’ll keep you posted.
