Spontaneous Generation: 15 Years of Half-Life Creations


Half-Life is now fifteen. Ok we already known that by now, right?

Throughout these 15 years the game has attracted quite a vast array of artists throughout many forms of artistic efforts. Half-Life has a very creativity community. As a result, there has been an overload of Half-Life fan-art and creations that has and is still being produced after all these years. Don’t believe us?

We wanted to share with you some of the amazing artwork and creativity from around the community that caught our eye over the past fifteen years. Like in all of our other compilations from our 15 Years of Half-Life celebration, we cannot cover everything under the sun and we have very likely forgotten or have not seen many other amazing things too. Please feel free however to remind us!

Lights, Camera, Crowbar: 15 Years of Half-Life Multimedia


Today we’re going to take a look back at some of the best, most iconic pieces of film and multimedia inspired by the Half-Life universe. As you may imagine, there has been an amazing amount of fan-created productions over the years.

There are probably a lot of things that have been sadly lost or forgotten online too. Anyhow, here is a list of a few of the memorable fan-produced films, machinimas, series and other multimedia created since Half-Life’s release in 1998. Enjoy!

You may say to yourself “I hate my life and everything in it”, or you may ask yourself “wait, how can I get one of those things”?

The answer, my friend, is to win the Saxxy Awards.
