Source is a 3D game engine developed by Valve as the successor to their original GoldSrc engine, introduced in June 2004. Source does not have a concise version numbering scheme; instead, it is designed in constant incremental updates. It is named after Half-Life: Source, the first game by the corporation to utilize the engine.
