What is LambdaGeneration?
LambdaGeneration (LambdaGen, for short) is a Valve-centric community website which aims to bring you the biggest Valve-related news, and the finest community-created media and content. The site is frequently updated by a small yet active staff, aided by a number of support staff contributors (you can find a brief list of the most active and notable staff members below). While we might cover miscellaneous industry news from time to time, and while we do actively cover all Steam or even Source-related subjects – above all else, we focus on Valve and the Valve community.
So generally speaking, we cover everything related to Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress (and so on, and so forth), as well as Valve’s other game franchises, projects, and activities; and, of course, all of the awesome stuff their dedicated fanbases produce on a regular basis (be they modifications, artwork, machinima films, or anything else, really).
And we’re always trying to add as much depth, context and value as we can to each and every report, editorial, or article. We can’t always cover everything, and we can’t always be as fast as we’d like to be (that’s one thing we have in common with Valve), but that won’t stop us from doing what we’ve set out to do as best as we can possibly can.
We don’t aim for high-speed, low-substance news barrages, because the big industry sites already have that covered. We don’t cover baseless, unverifiable rumors, because no one likes it when a community trolls itself. We’re impartial and fair, because too many fansites mistake passion for subjectivity and bias. We aim for accurate, detailed, and comprehensive postings on a wide variety of topics, because we believe that keeping you in the loop always comes first, no matter what.
If you’ve got any questions, or if you’ve spotted anything you’d like to see on the site, feel free to drop us a line at: “email@example.com”.

LambdaGeneration currently runs on WordPress. The theme ‘cp-minimal’ was used as a structure for the first version of the site. It was heavily modified and most of the ‘cp-minimal’ code has been re-made. The Logo, HTML, CSS, PHP and server side code was created by Alex and the site graphics were created by Dom.
We would like to credit the websites which we viewed to help make the LambdaGeneration design: PlanetPhillip, VisualSwirl, Cloudbite, Podcast17, TutsPlus Network, GarrysMod, Iñaki’s Stuff, TeamFortress Blog, Left4Dead Blog.
