Game news Stars of Blood: Awesome artwork from the canceled Valve project (Half-Life) reappears
Known for its iconic Half-Life license, Valve has had the right to many other successes thanks to franchises such as Left 4 Dead, Counter-Strike, Portal and Team Fortress. Gabe Newell’s company could have achieved notoriety through a completely different project, which was unfortunately canceled in 2012 and has reappeared since this weekend through some works of art.
To hear Gabe Newell talk about Stars of Blood, you have to go back almost ten years. In 2012, the co-founder and director of Valve Corporation mentions that an internal project called Stars of Blood saw the light of day in the development studios but was eventually canceled
But at the weekend the project was suddenly brought up again and sparked social networks, especially Reddit, which took over with new visuals. that will make the Valve Archive fansite happy.
The remains of a monumental city
Without warning, the Obscure Game Aesthetics Twitter account brought back a project from beyond the grave, the only remaining elements of which are contained in some files on the Valve archive site. A handful of visuals, four in total, that were broadcast and which, according to the rest of the thread, could be linked to an old tech demonstration online on YouTube since 2012!
These unprecedented illustrations and screenshots allow us to find out what the Stars of Blood environments would have been like had the project not been abandoned for good. Huge decors and a city full of life and movement that make you dream of the idea of the end result
A persistent rumor wanted Stars of Blood to be the Half-Life universe, especially because it could have staged the alien empire that has taken control of Earth to exploit it and baptize the cartel .. Little information that has given the space project teeming with pirates from Valve a certain mystique and the new knowledge will undoubtedly increase tenfold!
