Black Mesa, the fan-recreation of Half-Life in the Source engine—now independent Steam title, has been nominated for the 2015 Indie of the Year Awards in the First Person Shooter category, hosted by Indie DB.
The long-awaited game, previously known as ‘Black Mesa: Source’, was released as a free Source mod in 2012 and after a lot of anticipation, it was made available on Steamearlier this year as commercial title.
The game still lacks the final chapters of the original Half-Life set in Xen, apparently due to technical limitations, however the devs have confirmed on several occasions that it is being developed for a future update.
The retail release of Black Mesa also came with multiplayer deathmatch, which further mimicked the dm maps and style of the original Half-Life multiplayer experience.

Last month they also announced that they are working on a new update for December, which will include improvements to the multiplayer gameplay, such as a playable G-Man model and new Gluon Gun model.
