Today we mark another chapter in the life of Half-Life Creations.

Some of you may have noticed that the forums got a facelift a few weeks back by RavenGT, our web designer that did all the past reiterations of Half-Life Creations. Now we have a website to match, inspired by the Half-Life of yesteryear while incorporating a more responsive design and modern web elements that will help Half-Life Creations stand the test of time.

RavenGT has worked many months to bring this design to the community and James and I are very excited to share it with you. While the designs of the past were fantastic and consistently represented us well, this redesign will carry on that tradition of being a home for those who share a passion for the Half-Life series and game development.

We are still accepting applications for hosting and support services for your projects, so be sure to drop by the forums and say hello if you need us. You can also reach out to the community through our Steam group.

We hope you enjoy the new and improved Half-Life Creations.

xx Half-Life Creations Turns 10 Years Old

January 24, 2017, 09:28:15 AM by Thomas
Today I get to mark an incredible milestone with you all: Half-Life Creations has officially turned 10 years old.

James and I had our humble start January 25th 2007 with a vague idea of doing a service for the Half-Life modding community; provide a space for people to work on what they were passionate about without having to worry about costs for a web presence. We have offered hosting to several projects that we are proud to say had their start here on Half-Life Creations. From Cry of Fear, The Gate, Heart of Evil NE, DiamonD's HL Packs, Arrangement, the PC port of Half-Life Decay, Frag Out, Shephard's Mind, Shotgun Sunrise, Half-Life Zombie Edition, HIT Model Depot, several portfolios for people who have since gone to work in the industry, to hosting the archive of one of the best Half-Life related podcasts ever recorded, Podcast 17.

We have had the opportunity to do so much beyond just hosting. We had the pleasure of hosting two game tournaments with a sponsor, and participate in collaboration with several Half-Life communities to learn and grow together. I've had the opportunity to talk with many community members, to catch up with them and their lives outside of the modding community. Many have even found work in the gaming industry.

It has been an absolute pleasure and a fantastic trip these last 10 years. Don't worry, we aren't going anywhere, even if the community has slowed down. If there is a need for web hosting for a Half-Life based project, you better believe that the doors of Half-Life Creations will be open to them.

Lastly, a very special thank you to all of our community members that have supported us throughout the years. Too many people to name have donated their time, talent and resources to make Half-Life Creations what it is today. It means a lot to James and I to have your support for such a long duration.

Now, what would a 10 year anniversary be without some nostalgia?
