Default Black Mesa: Source finally gearing up for public release?

A countdown timer has appeared on the Black Mesa: Source homepage. Could they finally be readying themselves for an actual public release?

According to rumors floating about the often delayed and much anticipated mod turned total conversion turned whatever will actually be released for public download starting September 14th, 2012. However sources close to the mod say that only 14 of 18 episodes will be included in the initial release, basically stopping at the Xen levels. (Fine by me, I hated the Xen levels anyway...)

If you've been living under a rock or something for the last decade, Black Mesa: Source (aka 'Black Mesa') is a complete remake of Valve Software's 1998 groundbreaking first person sci-fi shooter "Half-Life". Far from just a simple port, Black Mesa: Source is the original story re-told with maps, models, and audio completely re-created from the ground up by a 40 person team who are devoted fans of the original game. The source-based 'total conversion mod' has been 'in development' since it's initial announcement in 2004 and has often been chastized for delays, lack of progress updates, and has even won awards for it's 'vaporware' status.

Here, let the eye candy tell the story:

Edited your post. You put the initial announcement as 1994 instead of 2004.

Side note: I'm stoked as I've never sat down and played the original Half-Life.

Much like with Episode Three, even though there's a countdown, I'll believe it when I see it.
