[GameClub] Black Mesa

Welcome to Game Club. The first rule of Game Club is to tell as many people as you can about it… The second rule of Game Club is to tell… you get the idea.

Game Club is like a book club for games. We get together and play a game during a specific time period. From the start to the finish. Sometimes there are awards that get displayed on your profile. We also chat in the evenings while we play and it’s a lot of fun. Buy it, play it, join our chats in the evenings, be happy and content with the world.

The game we will be playing this round is Black Mesa. Voting happened here and here.

We will start playing on the 1st of July and will have until the end of August to finish the game.

Those who wish to participate can say so now and I will add you to the list. If you voted for the game during the voting phase then you are automagically entered. Everyone’s welcome!

I see that the Black Mesa devs, too, are people of culture.

They use Discourse for their forums :grin:

I have created the badge for this #gameclub. Currently it is called “Followed Standard Insertion Procedures”. Like with all GameClubs, you will be able to use the badge as a title.

All moderators should be able to grant the badge, and it works as follows:

1. On the post where someone announces that they have finished, expand the menu ("…") and click the :wrench: (wrench)

2. Click on Grant Badge

3. Scroll to the relevant badge in the drop-down menu, click it, and then click the Grant button.

Excellent example post you used there. So you have to finish the game to earn the badge? Damn… Will need to overcome my FPS handicap.

Welcome to day one then. The game is still very cheap for anyone who does not have it yet.

I’m strangely excited to start playing this. Just need to stop playing F1…
