Escape the confines of City 17 and strike a blow for the resistance!

As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. Now, in Episode Two, you must battle and race against Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver a crucial information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.

Episode Two is the second of a planned trilogy of games that extends the award-winning and best-selling Half-Life adventure. Unique weapons, vehicles, and new creatures, friends, and enemies all make an appearance.

About Above the Catacombs with 1 comment by EyesShut on Jan 28th, 2015


The development for this month has been focused on expanding the world design by working on custom textures and decals. The exterior level design of Niagara Square was started this month; progress on the area is still early.

It should be noted that I have not made much progress this month due to my medical status. Unless stated otherwise in future newsletters, assume that any further lack of development is due to that reason.

Since I have not much to display this month, I will be uploading a demonstration video of the completed area of the Niagara Apartments sometime later this week.

Throughout the past month I have been designing faded billboards for fictional American companies that were existent before the Universal Union’s invasion and subsequent occupation of Earth. A recent billboard texture that has been created (the backdrop combines two plaster textures from Half-Life 2) is for a fictional fast food restaurant chain that sells high fat donkey meat.

FASS - Kids eat free on Fridays! billboard texture.

I have also been working on a very early version of Niagara Square (the exterior portion of the "Introduction" chapter). I do not have any rendered versions of the map to showcase yet, so a rather unrevealing screen capture of the map in the Hammer editor is provided below for those interested.

Preview of Niagara Square in Hammer editor.

I am currently debating on releasing the first version of the alpha earlier than expected. The initial plan was to release after I have a fairly complete version of the first chapter of the modification. Since it could take up to the entire year to complete a working version of the first chapter, it may be suitable to release earlier in order to at least provide a prototype version of the modification for testing purposes.

For those who want more of a complete experience of the modification, I strongly recommend that you wait at least until the alpha stage of development is finished. Regardless, I will be certainly uploading my own walkthrough of the Alpha 1 version once it is completed.

Is anyone else having trouble with the game? Everytime I try to play it crashes within the first 12 minutes of game play, the water looks like milk, and parts of the ground are pink and black checkered. Pretty sure I'm not supposed to swimm in milk for 12 minutes

Eli was actually Doctor Breen the whole time and Gordon Freeman turns out to be Odessa Cubbage. Barney then reveals himself to be the real Eli Vance. Then the player discovers that at the start of Highway 17 Noriko dropped the jeep with Gordon Freeman in it on purpose in an attempt to kill him.
