The home of all things Valve

We love Half-Life.

Half-Life is so much more than a game. It's a global community of talented people who create amazing things.

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



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

Originally launching as a Valve 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. With over 5000 members, the site has become the home of Valve news and fan content for Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike and more.

In 2022 we launched LambdaBuilds - A series of Half-Life and Valve themed level design competitions, in collaboration with ModDB.

Meet the team

Founder & Site Director

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.

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.

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.

LambdaBuilds Lead

I’m a long-time modder, project lead, and the editor/community manager at ModDB and DBolical.

I like setting new standards and breaking new ground!

At LambdaGeneration, I run the LambdaBuilds competitions and provide assistance where needed elsewhere.
