Half-Life 2 Walks The Dinosaur: Jurassic Life

With Black Mesa Source somehow now actually released, maybe we need a new impossible mod dream to dream. How about this Jurassic Park-themed mod for Half-Life 2, now six years in the making without any danger of issuing a release date? That's how PC gaming rolls.

It does have some great footage to show off, though. Clever girl.

The team behind Jurassic Life have broken cover with the below video after almost a year of silence, and while they've got good stuff to show off it's pretty clear that they're a long way from the finish line on this. They're also after a few more amateur devs, details on which are here.

Here's the footage, replete with island jungles, assorted dinos to mow down with the HL2 arsenal and that theme tune.

If you believe I primarily posted this because the music made me feel a whole lot better on this first working Monday of 2013, you'd be absolutely right. For nostalgia's sake, here's how it was used originally.

Jurassic Life will be out when it's done. I'll guess that means years rather than months.

These developers were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
