Half-Life: Beyond Black Mesa

The highly anticipated Half-Life-inspired fan-made film Beyond Black Mesa has finally been released in full.

The short, which was produced over the course of two years with a ludicrous budget of $1,200, follows Adrian Shephard “and a band of resistance fighters struggling to get out a warning about the impending invasion.”

Director Brian Curtin adds, "This film is not HL, HL2 or Opposing Forces. It’s a short fan film that takes place in the Half-Life world. Also, as a completely independent film, we wanted to have a creative voice in the movie and make it a movie that we would enjoy shooting. We took artistic freedoms and liberties, unfortunately most of those decisions were determined by our limited resources."
