I have been meaning to share these Hot Glows and Tau Lasers for quite sometime as they where given to me by someone who I used to play Half-Life with over 20 years ago. They now serve a more meaningful purpose as I did not know that the creator of these files had actually passed away 20 years ago in a car accident at the age of 25. I found a tribute site for her located here.
They where created by GirlyGirl who I am sure anyone from around that time would have heard of her and have fond memories of her and that time in our lives when the Internet was new and excited and you could meet people from all over the world.
The zip file even includes the original text file with her ICQ number and email address. Almost making these sprites vintage half-life sprites. A sign of what it was like back then, communicating through ICQ and sharing out your number and talking to anyone.
