About

LambdaGeneration is a website dedicated to Half-Life.

( We’re basically really passionate about crowbars, headcrabs and anyone who has goatee with a PhD in theoretical physics… )

It is run by the community for the community.

lambdageneration-is-back-welcome

The fan-base created as a result of Valve’s work has led to the existence of a strong (and patient) community which withholds a diverse culture of passion, creativity and inspiration.

Our aim is to establish a platform to express this culture as a celebration of our own passion and love for everything Half-Life.

The name ‘LambdaGeneration‘ attempts to relate to the ‘Generation of Lambda’ as both the generation as the group/following/epoch of Half-Life as well as the creation/making/production of all things related to Half-Life and Valve.


Staff

LambdaGeneration is a voluntarily run fan site made up of a team of Half-Life fans from around the world.

Site Founder and Director. I currently manage the LambdaGeneration social media accounts. I am also responsible for the site's branding, design and coding.

I first played Half-Life when I was only five years old. It changed my life. I founded LambdaGeneration as a result of my passion towards the game and the amazing community created from it.

Mitch Wensveen

Writer, producer and Director. I’ve been a Half-Life fan ever since I started gaming on PC. I produce ‘All Things Lambda’ on the LambdaGeneration YouTube channel and sometimes provide screenshots for the LambdaGeneration social media.

I am the creator of the YouTube show ‘Glorious Rigby’. I love drinking coffee, synthwave music and anything sci-fi related! Seriously, there is coffee running trough my veins. I can’t live without it at this point. It’s a serious problem but I don’t mind. Nobody is perfect. And so is my coffee. Just drinkable.

I've been a Half-Life obsessive for a long time - ever since HL2 introduced me to the gaming community. When I'm not on this site, I draw stuff and critique other stuff.
