Insomnia

for Half-Life 2

After waking up in a dentist’s chair in the middle of nowhere there’s only one appropriate course of action to take: escape. This is the surreal dream-world of Insomnia. Will you survive this neverending night in the face of desperate refugees from more well-ordered realms of time and space? Or will you be trapped forever in the Red Room or perhaps the winding streets of Paranoia City?

Leon’s Mappack 1

for Half-Life 2

You get extracted in the sewers outside a big city that is controlled by the Combine, although there are certain parts of the city that are filled with headcrabs and other creatures.

You have to find and fight your way through the sewer, over the railroad track into the city.

Once you’re in the city, your objective is to find the power plant and destroy it.

It sounds easy but you will have to fight for your life before you get there.
