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 2 comments by EyesShut on Mar 31st, 2015


Throughout this month of March, progress has been rather slow unfortunately, but I did manage to create two of my first custom tracks for the Above the Catacombs soundtrack. I have also been working on a prototype for the Citadel which will be viewable in the exterior portion of the Introduction chapter.

Any development next month in April will be focused on developing the exterior portion (Niagara Square). I really do hope to get some considerable progress done next month. Of course, the first alpha version should be released fairly soon (1-2 months or less) in order to get some more in-depth criticism on the project.

I am most certainly aware of the comments concerning poor lighting in the Niagara Apartments, I have noticed that on some monitors the brightness in the screenshots does not seem very consistent, likely due to the fact that lighting in the Niagara Apartments is extremely minimal. I will know more about potential lighting issues once the first alpha has been released and users have tested the level on their own.

The two custom tracks (non-remix tracks) that I created this month are featured below:

In addition to the two custom tracks, I have started work on a prototype brush of the Citadel that will be viewable from the Niagara Square.

Citadel prototype brush in Hammer.

I am hoping the month of April will go more smoothly.

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.
