The home of all things Half-Life

We really love Half-Life.

To us, Half-Life is so much more than a game - It’s a way of life.

Half-Life has inspired our lives, shaped our careers, but most of all, has given us some amazing friends (and a ton of fun in-between).

We created LambdaGeneration to bring people together from around the world to celebrate the amazing things people do and make for Half-Life.

From mods to fan art, the Half-Life community is bursting with creativity. Even throughout long periods of official absence, the community has always been there to keep the game alive.

We see it as our duty to provide a platform to all those who live and breath Half-Life.

History

Founded in 2010, LambdaGeneration has grown to become the world’s largest Half-Life fansite with over 30,000 combined followers and over a million monthly views of our social media content.

Originally a news website , LambdaGeneration has evolved with the Internet, existing in many different online spaces, including TwitterYouTube and Discord.

In 2021 we launched the LambdaGeneration Community Platform - The world’s first Valve themed social media platform, where anyone can share Half-Life news and fan content in a modern and dedicated space.

Alex
Founder

I first played Half-Life when I was just five and it’s pretty much shaped everything I’ve done since.

I have a huge passion for fan communities and seeing how they bring people together.

I created LambdaGeneration in 2010 to share the amazing fan content from around the Valve community.

I spend most of my time designing and programming things. I also love cycling, sci-fi movies and PC gaming.

David
Platform Lead

I’m David, longtime Valve fan.

I am the platform’s dev team lead and I also maintain our game servers.

My favorite thing about this community is the sheer amount of creative content that is made by fans, despite the game series being many years old.

Mitch
Mitchaka Robo
Video Lead

I’ve been playing video games and I've been making videos all my life. In 2017, I decided to marry my two passions together and created a channel called Glorious Rigby where I talk about Half-Life games and the stuff around it.

I joined LambdaGeneration in 2018 to create and produce the show called “All Things Lambda” where I talk about Half-Life news from outside and inside of the community.

I love cats, drink a lot of cappuccinos and I watch a lot of cartoons on the side, while eating spaghetti. Oh, and I’m Dutch! In case you were wondering.

Content research and moderation

Video editor, photographer and writer.

I mostly lurk in the shadows, help find news stories for All Things Lambda, and take care of the moderation side of things for LambdaGeneration. Immersion is the name of the game.

Video research and scriptwriter

I help with the scripts with All Things Lambda, I even hosted an episode once.

When I’m not lazy, I make videos where I try to make theories and try to make them sound like they’re actual, canonical lore. Leadhead does a way better job at that than me though. I need to unlock her secret. I hereby swear that I will not abuse my office of LambdaGen team member to spread propaganda that my weird theories are true. Anyways, have you guys seen the movie Cloverfield? Also I like the colour Green.

Hi I’m Dom! I’m a Valve superfan and enthusiastic about all things Half-Life.

I’m a programmer & designer by trade and assist with the platform whenever the main dev team needs an extra set of eyes or ears.

One of my most prized possessions is my copy of Half-Life 2: Raising the Bar signed by the HL2 dev team.
