7 Years On, A Half-Life Modding Classic Is Finally Getting A Sequel: “Time’s End”

Other 7 Years On, A Half-Life Modding Classic Is Finally Getting A Sequel: “Time’s End”

Way back in June of 2005, a mere 7 months after the long-awaited release of Half-Life 2, Daniel Squire released his first ever mod: Life’s End, a 35-map Half-Life 1 modification (more of a mappack episode than a total conversion, though), in which the player took on the role of Luther Johnson, your average Black Mesa scientist caught in the middle of the Black Mesa Incident, who happens to stumble onto a Mark IV HEV suit (and if you took HL1 mods’ word for it, HEV suits are just about the easiest thing to find in Black Mesa) and thus becomes a part of the subsequent inter-dimensional conflict.

Nearly a decade later, it’s become a cult classic of Half-Life 1 modding, having garnered an aggregate rating of 4.77 out of 5 on PlanetPhillip. A sequel titled Time’s End (picking up where Life’s End left off, but with a brand new janitor protagonist) has been in the works for at least 3 years, but development has been fairly quiet, and the project has undergone a couple of delays. But now, it seems like it’s coming together very well for its upcoming release, early next year. Check out the trailer, after the jump!

Portal 2 DLC #2 To Feature Simplified Infographic Map Editor And Custom Map Distribution Interface, To Be Released In Early 2012

Other Portal 2 DLC #2 To Feature Simplified Infographic Map Editor And Custom Map Distribution Interface, To Be Released In Early 2012

There’s two really big problems with Portal 2 right now – one, the SDK is… well, it’s Hammer. That speaks for itself, doesn’t it? Hammer is still Hammer, even if the Portal 2 authoring tools are still in the beta stage. And number two? Custom maps can be hard to find at times, especially for newer players. They don’t know they should go to “That Site” to download all the hottest new custom maps. They haven’t found out that “This Other Site” is only used by a few, and only has low-quality maps. In fact, they might not even know about any of these sites at all.

But Valve has come to the rescue! Could they have the solutions to these problems? Read on…

Half-Life 3 Accidentally Revealed In Former Valve Dev’s Resume? (UPDATE)

Other Half-Life 3 Accidentally Revealed In Former Valve Dev’s Resume? (UPDATE)

Update: Doug Lombardi has replied to our e-mail, and he’s crystal clear on this:

Fake.

And Phil Kollar reports on GameInformer, inside an article based on this story, that the information posted by ryuuk was indeed fake:

Valve’s Doug Lombardi responded to this rumor in about as clear a way as we could hope for: “This is fiction (aside from the fact that Mike D is a real person)”.

Original article: Since Episode Two’s release in October of 2007, we’ve seen virtually no substantial information on Episode Three. While Doug Lombardi did mention, in this interview with Kikizo, that the wait until Episode Three would be longer than the wait between HL2 and Episode One, and the wait between Episode One and Episode Two combined (which told us that the wait would go beyond October 2010), and that Valve may reveal something EP3-related some time at the very end of 2008. As we all know, this never happened, and since then, it’s been nothing but total silence.

Then Game Informer told us there would be no Half-Life during 2010 – and surprisingly, they were right. They also mentioned that there would be no Episode Three at all, and that it would become a full-fledged Half-Life 3, which was an idea the fans had been playing around with. Then they “predicted” that this HL3 would be revealed some time during the course of this year, which yet again, got people going.

Of course, as we all know, there was no Half-Life at E3. Game Informer’s prophecy would have to come true later in the year. But, what have we here?
