Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people, people he cares about, are counting on him.

Congratulations to all of you designers' hard work! The quality is absolutely stunning!

I hope in the future, Moddb will be able to link up with another company for another one of these contests, and perhaps bigger prizes will be at hand. For now, I hope you guys enjoy your t-shirts and posters, and have fun when you're playing Half-Life 2 on your computers :)

There are links under each wallpaper with the sizes folks. If you want bigger, contact the artist and they may do them for you.
