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 out now! Go play it, and give me your feedback.  And most of all, enjoy!I'm just releasing a .zip file today, but later in the week I plan to have an installer also available. The plan is to release each map as its ready, or as it makes sense.  And right now, I've got 7 maps planned for the initial release.  1 down, 6 more to go.

Overheid is a single-player Half-Life 2 mod set during the events of Half-Life 2, but starring a new protagonist. This is just the first part of a multi-part...

the map was great. the only problem was i had maybe 10 frame rate drops from start to finish i know its not my PC because i can run hl2 ep2 on high full resolution with no frame rate drops. but other than that the first part was really well thought out and was fun.

So very short. So very, very sweet.

Marvellous mapping, and great, well paced combat.
The start of a great, story driven mod.
'This is map 1 of 7 for the initial release'
Oh boy, I'm looking forward to the next 6. I hope the Demo map is one of them - that was magnificent.

The 'Minerva Metastasis' style of text and content is brilliant. Keep it up cesig. A great enhancement.

Great idea to release in instalments of a map at a time. We get new maps from time to time and you get feed back.
Talking of which:
Cons: Just one for me. I did not like the beginning. I think it would have been better to extract the player in the alleyway.
Pros: Everything else.

A map by an expert modder and it shows.

Any plans after map 7 for this mod?

this is a pretty good improvement over the last installment I played (the official demo). I want to point out that the story is nearly non-existent and I did not feel like any particular area was impressive, save for the superb Combine architecture at the very beginning. Once I got away from the Combine corridors, the mod went south FAST. I also dislike the Minerva-style text - you should simply record some radio transmissions instead of displaying text. Overall, not a bad effort but not memorable - yet. Final thought - the mod ended just as it was getting interesting.

Hello, I was recently asked to review this mod for a side review segment of Podcast 17. I just finished the mod and until I finish my review, all I want to say is that the pacing was way off the entire the first in that things happened to fast and no one part was really fleshed out. Of course these are just my professional feeling and do not represent the feeling of anyone else or the community.

Now this is a mod i can get into!

It actually feels like i'm playing a Half Life 2 level, no glitches, the map is easy to navigate and no cutting corners in terms of design.

I can't wait to see the finish product
