"Every night the same hunter-chopper scans the town. Every-night it does the same thing and then leaves. The Combine finally found our shelter and yet they do nothing. I want to know why."

Remove the NPC IMO.

I do not really like the background of the menu, I think that you should change the point of view in the map.

Wouldn't it be awesome if the camera moved alongside the metrocop? He would walk up to a hill, cliff or something and then when he reached said cliff the camera could focus on a point that showed a vast landscape, giving us an idea of this post-apocalyptic world right from the menu.It would also be more dramatic and much more engaging than with a simple background.

This is a great idea! Don't know if it's possible, but it'd be really awesome!

Yeah, I love those menus where you just can sit back and relax and watch something happen! Did that a couple of times in Hl2 and the episodes, there was always something going on.

Or move, or show a more large area IMHO; Even, why not a great panorama with some activity? :)

About NPC: maybe the black of the head contrasts too much with the white; But dunno how to make it look "better" :/ The rest of the reskin is quite nice, like it :)

Nice work!

Thanks for the feedback, they're all good ideas, and the final menu will be a lot better then this. I'll cook something up in the next few days or so.

Since you mentioned that there isn't much combine presence in this part of the world, it doesn't make much sense to have a metrocop there.

He probably missed the train.

The current main menu, it serves a purpose but this is unlikely to be the final main menu. Regardless it shows the WIP metro-police uniform change.

The re-design was more of a test regarding NPC re-skinning. I like the design but it needs plenty of tweaks and changes.
