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 can't play the mod >_> I put the folder in sourcemods folder, and I started it. The first scene worked with the police but it froze on Loading screen after that scene. I waited 10-15 minutes and nothing happend. I applied the patch after I discovered it and tried it out. Same problem. I tried starting Citizen 2 but that just froze on main menu.

What do I do? D: I want to play!

I just finished the game and got all 15 easter eggs BUT I don't seem to see the 'surprise'. After the Gman talks to me on the train I fade out to a black screen then can not see anything but darkness and a light in the distance that looks like a train .. if I move the mouse upwards I see sky but when I move it back down I see darkness again. I take it that's a bug of some sort? I can't seem to walk, can just move the camera around but see arkness or sky, nothing else. What am I supposed to see :-/

The whole mechanism that runs the 'secret' is not perfect and occasionally doesn't work. The only way it is 100% reliable is if you complete the whole mod in one sitting. The problems seem to get more likely to happen the more you save.

Sorry about that.

The 'secret' ending is where you wake up in a different place, there is some of the concept art for the mod on the walls, and some other things to look at. It's a bit like an art gallery. There's also a guy there who talks to you, but to be honest I can't even remember what he says now!
