'Half-Life' fan film adds second part
Monday 29 August 2011
Jaws dropped when fan short
Escape from City 17: Part 1 hit the net and now, two and a half years later,
Part 2 arrives to provide a total 18 minutes of high quality
As before, Escape... Part 2 blends CGI wizardry with film footage in order to create a world faithful to the Half-Life games.
A few remaining pockets of human resistance struggle against their invading Combine overlords, while scenes from Half-Life 2 play out around them.
Since Escape from City 17 first broke cover, a clutch of similarly impressive efforts have also surfaced: Beyond Black Mesa (July 2010 and January 2011), Outside Aperture (May 2011), Singularity Collapse (July 2011), and Portal: No Escape (also August 2011) are among the most recent that share a focus on Valve Software's fiction.
