The Citizen is set parallel to the events of the original Half-Life 2. The player takes the role of an ordinary man, pushed over the edge by the oppressive regime controlling his life. His home trashed, his family dead, The Citizen leaves his apartment for the last time. He seeks new friends, and a way to help the human resistance to smash the iron grip of the Combine. What follows is a winding tale of betrayal, determination and grief. Many obstacles lie in his path which require a sleek combination of agility, stealth, intelligence, and sheer violence to overcome.

Originally released in November 2007 and re-released in February 2008, this singleplayer episode is still in the making. The Citizen Part 2 was released on December 24 2010.

From now on, all sequel status, updates, images etc will appear HERE
Although The Citizen Part II follows the events of this mod, it will be a different download for which we want a different rating as we think it is a big improvement over our previous work. Don't forget to bookmark the new page!

When I start the game up it makes an error noise and says I am missing the background thing, what am I missing? I downloaded everything.

How do I get past the first guy you have to sneak past? I just go down the stairs, he sees me, I run around (or walk around, after all who would run away from bullets when they could just walk instead?), then dinf a button that doesn't seem to do anything before the bullets and manhacks kill me.

Maybe there's something obvious I'm missing, but I guess it's not obvious enough.

It's possible to drop something like a crate or monitor on top of his head to get rid of him.
