Valve Technology


The engine under the hood of Half-Life 2 can make your game a success. Let Source™ do the heavy lifting so that your team can focus on building great games.


If you're interested in building a product using Source, talk to us about options for distribution on Steam.

Our knowledgebase of technical information about using the engine and all of the related tools is now posted on an community-driven web site called a WIKI. Sign up as a developer to contribute or to ask a question.
