Things to come?

Hi everyone, Rich here. Hope you’re good, just thought I would drop an update into you after the script/letter/story that Mr. Laidlaw wrote and put up online the other day. I have been a fan of this universe for as long as I can remember. It shaped my childhood and the way I viewed games entirely. I could spend and I have spent hours talking about it.

As much as I knew that Episode 3 / HL3 would not be produced I really thought there was some hope that I would be wrong. There is still a part of me that hopes Mr. Laidlaw is being Earth's biggest troll and they will announce a new Half-Life based title soon. But if you read between the lines of his writing… Well personally and I hope i'm wrong. But it tells me what we all don't really want to hear. Its very sad that we will not get to see the ending to the most hyped game of all time and if it's true, to say goodbye to it in a few pages of writing, well, personally I am absolutely gutted.

For me what was a joke about HL3 being CONFIRMED has now quickly become a meme that will never become a reality. Which really sucks, and we (us) as a community will never actually be able to say HL3 CONFIRMED and it actually means that which I feel is also pretty sad. The thing im most saddened by is the fact we will never find out who G-man was.

I had an idea of what would happen in HL3 / EP3 and I feel i touched on that relatively well. But now there is some rough clarity, I think we can expand on that and think about some ideas. The good thing about Prospekt is that it's open to being extended and that its story can go anywhere and we can add new chapters to the game, we can extend its storyline and we can do well… whatever we want to some extent.

I think... well, i think that we would all like to play something that ties up the actual story, and I think that maybe I/we can try and do something with that. It will take a long time. But considering nothing is happening anyway, maybe we can do something in the future and better late than never is better than nothing ever. I’m not sure myself yet, I would have to get around the table and talk to people. But if this is it and were never getting anymore Half-Life. Well, then id like to try and deliver some more for the entire community to enjoy and hopefully expand the story and explain some things.

I can't promise anything but we will see.

Hope you are all well.

July Update!

Hello all Rich here, so, i've been watching the comments and the chat for a while observing how things are unfolding over the last few weeks. Its interesting to see what peoples views and attitudes are. I'm going to just say a few home truths here about game design and development and also the continued support for this game. Prospekt is still being worked on and things are in the pipe. The main reason why there hasn't been any news for a while is mainly because of three reasons. Firstly, i've been incredibly sick and had a pretty close shave with my health as of late which put me out of commision for a long time for which I do have to say a massive thank you to the NHS for because honestly I would be dead by now if they were not there to help me free of charge.

Secondly, the team that grew in size, contracted in size and the person who was working on major parts of the next update did not come through for us in the end. Thirdly. We are taking quite a major turn in what we want the game to be. The plan was to first just release updates, put out the soundtrack etc and improve on certain parts of the game. Hope it gets better and then continue with the development. Well that's not really the aim now. We are looking at all aspects of the game design to make it better. The team is now at five. So thats whats happening. I would like to give you dates / goals / milestones but honestly I think that's a bad idea because when/if we don't hit them people are not very understanding.

What I can confirm is that the game is being worked on. Unfortunately due to the lack of sales and traffic it means that I have now had to find alternative means of income. Therefore the time I can spend on this project has dropped. Thats not to say that its stopped because that is completely not the case. In fact the team now is at its largest. I am taking more of a supportive role. Working on new 3D content and game aspects. I am not going to confirm any new changes at this time because that is likely to change and what i dont want to do is say this big feature is getting added, then down the line is removed as i feel that will disappoint a lot of players.

What I can say is there will be more significant content drops. When they are extremely polished, fun and ready. There will be significant gameplay increases and i am very hopeful the game is going in a direction that you’re all going to love.

Can i just ask please that some of you just be patient. Creating content for this type of game is extremely time intensive and is not easy to just push out. When people start arguing or leaving negative reviews that is making it harder for this game to thrive. It would be much better for constructive criticism and support to help this game get better. With the game on a mixed review right now it is almost impossible for any growth. But we will still endeavour for that to happen.

To everyone who has been super supportive and I think you all know who you are. Thank you very much for your continued support it is greatly appreciated.

Speak to you all soon.
