A set of photos of concept art pinned up at Valve HQ has set tongues wagging that the Half Life developer has a new IP in the works.

The pictures, which you can see below, were captured by PC Gamer during a recent visit. They show a number of sci-fi themed character and hardware sketches that don't initially appear to be from the Half Life, Team Fortress or Left 4 Dead universes.

Intriguing stuff. Valve isn't the sort of outfit to let journalists surreptitiously snap nearly 30 pictures of internal art material and then post them on the web. But then deliberately leaking such a huge wedge of assets from an unannounced game doesn't seem too likely either. Heck, maybe we're all just being played.

Take a look and toss in your 10 cents.

Half Fortress 2: Episode 3. That is all.

i disagree.

Honorable men can differ.

I loved Half Life 2 and Portal. But portal is short, really a DLC game, and Half Life 2 is good, but not the best game in its genre. (Plus portal has that pedophile / "delicious cake" reference that I don't agree with at all. (Child sexual abuse isn't funny ever.)

And it seems like this company takes forever to give people what they want. As a former fan I feel like they dangled a carrot in front of my nose for years... I finally got tired of waiting.

I wonder what this is about. I always liked Valve, I hope this is actually a new project, and a good one.


Looks like Sci-fi of the space kind.

Valve just make every new IP, every new game, every new episode or every new application become a Masterpiece AND revolutionize it's genre (or generate a new one).
If this is overrated, I don't know what is rated right.

@darkvivi, your English isn't that bad. It's easily readible at least ^.^
Also, is there anything new released about dota 2? It was announced like a year ago. And still nothing else ;/

I don't hate Valve or anything, but what genre have they 'revolutionised'?

That's weird... I play games for my entertainment, I'm not gonna quit liking a company because they keep me waiting, I'm just gonna play one of there other great games.
*Playing Team Fortress 2 waiting for Half-Life 2 : Episode 3* - *Playing Team Fortress 2 waiting for Half-Life 2 : Episode 3* - *Playing Team Fortress 2 waiting for Half-Life 2 : Episode 3*, "I'm tired of waiting for episode 3 so I'm gonna stop liking Valve games because they're suddenly over rated". I don't know if I read what you said all wrong, but it sounds like you're impatient and because of that you no longer are a fan of Valve, do you still at least like them?

I'm quite sure that this supposed correlation between pedophilia and Portal's cake joke is the result of the twisted, perverse minds of internet users, and not Valve themselves. Such distasteful antics seem to contrast with the game's comparatively whimsical, benign sense of humor. :S

Half Life 1 was one of the first FPS with a really good story and not just based on pew pew.
Portal is a great puzzle game. Not a revolution, but for sure one of the best and innovative of his genre in the latest years.
Probably Counter-Strike and Team Fortress shouldn't be in the list, because they started outside of Valve, but, at least the first one, started as a mod of HL and TF became the must have it is now since the 2nd one (so we're back with Valve).

Talking about "applications", how can we forget about Source Engine and STEAM? The second one is undeniable a revolution in the whole videogame industry with it's Digital Delivery philosophy.

They didn't revolutionize First-Person shooters, they just made exemplary examples of voice acting and Physics (especially Physics).
