He conceived and created much of Half-Life: Opposing Force, and served as the creator and lead designer of Half-Life: Blue Shift.

With Stephen Bahl and Kristy Junio, Heironimus co-wrote the story for Half-Life: Opposing Force, and the story for Half-Life: Blue Shift with Randy Pitchford and David Mertz.
