| Storyline :
"Otherwise... well... I can offer you a battle you have no chance of winning..
...rather an anticlimax, after what you've just survived..."
Take the job. All that you had to do was just take the job. But, no.
You decided that your pride was more sacred than your safety. And thanks to a
teleport malfunction you are back right where you started... four kilometers
underground in the darkest corner of the Black Mesa Research Facility. When
you regain your conciousness, sirens and screams are all you hear as you wake
up to the reality of utter chaos and destruction. Corpses lie mangled in pools
of their own blood. Hallways and staircases are sealed - collapsed by airstrikes.
To top it all off, most of the inhabitants of Xen have used their natural instinct
to migrate here since the destruction of their home planet, and rifts in space time
continue to throw Xen creatures into the bowels of Black Mesa.
Now your trapped in an alien-infested hole in the ground with only one
objective - reach the surface alive. Unfortunately, that may not be as easy as
it sounds, because the military has decided that rather than kill every witness
individually, they are going to simply seal off all of the exits...
...and then set off a thermal nuclear weapon.
Now its a race against the clock as you fight your was through infested
alien nesting grounds and military blockades while constantly trying to reach
the surface and get out of here alive. Hopefully you make it to the surface soon,
because in about 12 hours, the entire facility will be reduced to radioactive dust.
"No regrets, Mr. Freeman."

- ABOUT THE MAP -
Instinct is my first level for Half-Life, but don't get me wrong; I didn't just
start mapping yesterday... It has been a long and hard road of learning and
development with the gold source engine spanning 10 years to bring you this piece of work,
and I hope you enjoy it. I'm sorry for it's poor condition: the map is unfinished, however,
it is 2007, so I really can't be finishing it when Hammer 3.4 deletes my maps etc.
INSTALLATION?!?!?!? - Paste contents of the .zip in your steam/steam apps/your email/half life folder.
Start half life, pull down console, type 'map instinct_1' and enjoy.
