Half-Life: Alyx (Reveal Trailer)

Half-Life: Alyx (Reveal Trailer)

While it’s not the Half-Life 3 game we were hoping for, we’re still happy that Valve has revealed a new game in the classic franchise. Half-Life: Alyx is designed to be far more immersive than the prior games as it plays out entirely in virtual reality. Requires a SteamVR compatible headset, and drops March 2020.

Chell vs. Gordon

Chell vs. Gordon

We’ve seen the heroes of Half-Life and Portal work together. This time they go up against each other in a battle to see who gets cake. A silly short film by YouTuber AndrewMFilms.

Half-Life 3: Unannounced

Half-Life 3: Unannounced

Fence Post Productions‘ fan film that pokes fun at the endless wait for the next Half-Life game, as an aging Gordon Freeman is left alone with nothing to do. VALVE, can we just have this game already? You know you’d sell a squillion copies.

Super Smash Bros. Source!

Super Smash Bros. Source!

YouTuber crazyhalo envisions a variant of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. that’s filled only with the characters from the VALVE universe – Team Fortress, Counter-Strike, Half-Life, and Portal. We’d buy this game in a heartbeat.

Half-Life: Raise the Bar

Half-Life: Raise the Bar

(NSFW: Language) An ordinary tool becomes the stuff of legends in this tongue-in-cheek origin story of Gordon Freeman’s weapon of choice – the crowbar. The final scene doesn’t match the original, but it’s close enough.

The Gravity Gun (Live-Action)

The Gravity Gun (Live-Action)

While you can now buy your very own Half-Life 2 Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator, we much prefer the version that actually picks stuff up – even if it is just through the magic of special effects from the guys at Corridor Digital.

How Portal Should Have Ended

How Portal Should Have Ended

(NSFW: Language) Chell meets someone who speaks her language and helps her make a lie come true. Fortunately the folks behind HISHE were smart enough to add a few twists to the predictable jokes.

When Gordon Met Chell

When Gordon Met Chell

Valve’s silent protagonists come together to kick some ass in this awesome short film made by Michael Shanks. After all the crap they’ve been through, it’s nice to see the two have some fun.

Enter the Freeman

Enter the Freeman

(NSFW: Language) One of the best videogame-based short films we’ve seen, Ian James Duncan’s short has commendable acting and special effects. You’ll like it even if you haven’t played Half-Life.

Black Mesa

Black Mesa

An incredible fan remake of the 1998 classic, Half-Life, recreated with tremendous detail using the Source engine. But unlike the 2004 port, this one updates all the models, environments and sounds.

Half-Life: Origins

Half-Life: Origins

Half-Life fans, go back to where it all began with this live-action recreation of the opening sequence of the original Half-Life. Gordon Freeman and the Black Mesa Research Facility never looked so good.

Escape From City 17: Part 2

Escape From City 17: Part 2

(NSFW: Language) The sequel to the well-received Half-Life fan film is much longer but still satisfying to watch, thanks to great acting and above-par special effects, considering its measly $250 budget.

Source Code x Half Life 2

Source Code x Half Life 2

KeuleMedia used Half-Life 2, Garry’s Mod and the appropriately-named Source Engine to recreate the trailer for Duncan Jones’ under-appreciated Groundhog Day-on-a-train thriller, Source Code.

Freeman’s Days

Freeman’s Days

The trailer for Freeman’s Days, what seems to be a multi-part fan film being made by Roman Samtsova and Andrew Mankiewicz, stars Half-Life series hero Gary Oldman Gordon Freeman.

Beyond Black Mesa

Beyond Black Mesa

We loved the trailer for this labor-of-love Half-Life fan film, and the just-released 11-minute+ short film shot by 7 friends over 2 years doesn’t disappoint. Incredible work for its $1200 budget.

Beyond Black Mesa (Trailer)

Beyond Black Mesa (Trailer)

Beyond Black Mesa is an indie film inspired by the Half-Life series of video games. If the trailer is any indication, director Brian Curtin and crew made good use of their paltry $1200 budget.

I’m the Freeman (Teaser)

I’m the Freeman (Teaser)

Created by Weta Digital CG animator Marco Spitoni, this teaser gives us a glimpse into his short fan film based on the Half-Life series. No actual Striders were harmed in the making of this film.

Fans of VALVE games, rejoice! They just reached a deal with Gaming Heads to create awesome desktop figures based on the characters from HL2, L4D2, and TF2. First up, Team Fortress 2’s HEAVY.

Trailer: Dino-D-Day

Trailer: Dino-D-Day

Due out 2010 as a full game, Dino-D-Day is available as a prototype Half Life 2 mod; it envisions an alternate WW2 with the Allies fighting Nazis literally armed to the teeth. Thanks, Chris!
