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!

I enjoyed it, although I felt the voice acting was a little bit below your average developers standards, but this isn't your average developer now is it? I think that this mod is perfect and in no way needs any polishing up, it's the imperfections that make me know I'm doing something homegrown, and I like it that way.
also, I thought that the part where you disguise as a combine soldier was a genius idea!

Just finished the game

Perfect length, can be finished in an hour and a half if you don't rush and enjoy the story line.

Great level design and i enjoyed the voice acting, particularly the jordi accent :D

Overall a short but sweet game defiantly worth playing :)

This was a great mod and just the right length. Not too long, not too short. Loved the attention to detail and the concepts like putting on a uniform to get past certain areas. Well done guys, well done.
