There was more going on in City 17 than just what Gordon Freeman and Alyx were doing. Follow a new recruit as he struggles to find his place in the movement, and see just how sinister the Combine can be.
Overheid is a mod that follows a lesser-known member of the resistance as he makes his way through City 17, and up the ranks of the resistance movement. The demo is an early portion of the game, and includes the first major gameplay climax. It's heavy on combat and action, but the mod as a whole will feature a good mix of exploration, story, puzzles, and combat--similar to Half-Life 2.

Overheid is finally here! I wanted to give everyone a taste and get feedback so I know if I'm on the right track or not. I'm pretty excited about what I've got to show here, andI have plans for much more.
I didn't focus on the story in the demo, but in the full release there's a complex story that takes place during the time Gordon is on his rampage in City 17. As a member of the resistance, you'll definitely see evidence that Gordon is busy elsewhere in the city.
This release is a definitely action-oriented, but the other maps in the release will be paced similarly to Half-Life 2. Anyway, check it out, and please, give me feedback and suggestions!
