As we anticipated yesterday, news of the Black Mesa team’s quest for 20,000 Facebook “likes” went viral, and BMS did in fact hit their number and post an update on Facebook this morning:
“Thank you all so much, it’s really great to have your support! With your help we have now kicked off our social-media campaign towards our first release! You can expect more updates from us in the near future. Today we are sharing this fantastic batch of screenshots that really gives you the first glimpse into the gameplay of Black Mesa. This is just the beginning. We have more in store for you in the near future! Hold on to your lab coats!”
Certainly a strange way to restart an update dialog with their loyal fans, but it appears that Black Mesa feels confident enough at this point to get back in the game. How long until release is still anyone’s guess.
