MinimalismVille

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

MinimalismVille is the first 50-hour mapping challenge I have run. It will not be the last!

It contains 21 entries and a bonus map.

The focus of this theme was to use a little as possible. The mapper decided what was “little”.

Escapade

The transit system had taken Gordon to within a whisker of the surface, and safety.

However the military, ostensibly there to rescue the facilities personnel, had cut power to all the surface access doors.

The test reactor housed in Area 3’s nearby laboratories offered a solution to this predicament.

If Gordon could fire it up he should be able to redirect power to the access doors from the control room.

The way ahead was dangerous, but with luck this would be the final escapade.
