Half-Life: The Downfall of Evolution

Half-Life

Half-Life: The Downfall of Evolution is an upcoming Half-Life live action fan film series.

We previously covered the same project in October last year when it was going under the name ‘Lambda Protocol’ with a slightly different team. It’s not quite clear what happened to the original crew or why the name changed apart from the mention of a copyright issue involving Machinima Prime.

Despite the branding changes, the movie still looks as visually epic as ever, check out the new teaser:

New Half-Life Fan Film ‘Lambda’ Announced

Half-Life

A new live action Half-Life fan film is in the works.

‘Lambda’ by Dark Pulse Productions follows the story of a character known as Dominic Ryan, a resistance fighter who teams up with Barney Calhoun and Alyx Vance from Half-Life 2 in an attempt to rebel the Combine forces currently dominating the earth. The story itself is supposedly set a few days prior to the events of the game when Gordon Freeman is still in stasis, although it will also tie into the events beyond Gordon’s awakening from Point Insertion, up to The Uprising.

Steamcast Podcast Renamed Due to Trademark Problems

Steam

If you’ve been a follower of the Steamcast Podcast and have been wondering what happened to their website, Twitter and RSS feed, don’t worry they’re still around, just under a different name.

Due to a legal problem regarding the name ‘Steamcast’, the podcast has had to rename itself to ‘Steamchat Podcast’, which fortunately has also allowed them to keep their logo and acronym intact.

15 Years ago, on November 19th 1998, Valve released Half-Life.

What followed was an entire revolution in the gaming industry.

Half-Life redefined the FPS genre, it implemented rich storytelling, introduced new technologies and catalysed an entire platform for user-created content, all in one package.

A new generation of gaming was born.
