If you all remember a while back the former lead writer for Valve released a ‘Fan-Fiction’ story piece that was very clearly the outline of Half Life 2: Episode 3 to help provide fans closure to the series in any small way that he could. Well to many people’s surprise a fan game known as Project Borealis is set to try and recreate the previously unreleased episode by basing itself off the story Marc Laidlaw told to us.
The team consists of over 70 dedicated fans who are all working together to try and make the third episode happen despite Valve showing no interest in creating the final chapter. As the saying goes, we’ll just make our own game instead! With Blackjack and Hookers! It’s going to be interesting to see if this can truly match up to what Marc originally dreamed of when he created that outline of the story and seeing it be brought into reality truly shows the dedication that the fans of this series really have. It’s not anywhere close to being finished but I will be keeping a close eye on this one. Let’s just hope Valve don’t decide to be the bad guys and lawyer up.
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
