Southernmost Combine is an alternate epilogue to Half Life 2 Episode 2, in which Gordon Freeman is sent back in time to the 80´s to stop an early Combine invasion happening in the southernmost land of the world. There are a few deviations in gameplay mechanics. But it´s still Freeman against the Combine. Can you endure the challenge?

After 13 years in the making, Southernmost Combine is finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

It´s been a long, very long time since I began to dream with making this. The journey was long, with many life changing events going in the way, but when it was less expected, the moment i definetely decided i had to let it go... I was hit by a lighting of energy and empowereded by a surreal clarity of mind and determination to put this whole thing, finally, togheter. And turned out that the pieces fitted with each other very satisfactorily.

For those who don´t know about this mod (because most likely many of its followers have shifted to other interests) It is an episode in the half life universe, in which Freeman is sent back in time to a southern place in the world (can he guess where it is?). Pretty much standard HL2 game mechanics except that it relies more on slow and tactical approaches. and exploration is rewarded with information and equipment. Each combat setting and puzzle is an unique challenge on its own which hopefully players will enjoy as much as I enjoyed doing them. Images are a few which sole purpose is to illustrate this article, I believe the visual quality wont disappoint anyone, but I dont want to spoil it.

everything looks very polished.
i obviously don't know anything about this mod,
but one thing i would say is that the sights on that assault rifle (circle with a + inside it) are very large and distracting.
just my two cents.

Yes please!

I hope it goes smoothly and reaches us quickly. I wasn't aware it was such a long developed mod, I for some reason thought it was in beginning or mid stages when I first learned about it in 2019. Now I can't wait to finally see it "in person".

For those reading, I am addressing some small problems that arose during the beta test. The process is being slow because I also have a full time job and my computer requires a couple of hours to compile all the maps in a row (usually required when making some small global change). Still, I expect it to be ready and uploaded this weekend. And thanks for the kind words! I really hope people enjoy it.
