The Whole Goop Life

TWHL Competition 20th Anniversary Extravaganza

That’s right! Today, December 10th, 2022 marks the 20th anniversary of TWHL’s first ever mapping competition! (You’re excited, I can tell)

Now, the 20th wedding anniversary is referred to as the Emerald Anniversary, the precious green gemstone symbolising the occasion and often the traditional gift. Well, the Valve titles aren’t exactly riddled with precious gemstones, but there is one thing they do have. Radioactive toxic waste. Not exactly the ideal gift for your beloved, but the thick, green goop can mix up both gameplay and aesthetics if applied to a map in just the right way.

Welcome to TWHL!

Eh? Windows-User?
But Half-Life Fans are using also on Linux or macOS too. But I have great support for Linux and macOS-Users. :D

Ah nice. Just got to my desk and saved me a job. Glad that's fixed. :D
There's an entire official Half-Life 1 single player episode called Hostile Takeover by 2015, supposedly 60% complete when the plug was pulled by Valve possibly due the plot line being utterly insane...

Yes, we're searching for a mapper that is skilled enough to at least match the main half-life campaign quality
