Southernmost Combine

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

Southernmost Combine is an alternate epilogue to Half-Life 2: Episode 2, in which Gordon Freeman is sent back in time to the 1980s to stop a Combine recon deployment happening in the southernmost land of the world. There are a few deviations in gameplay mechanics (more tactical and slow paced, no gravity gun, inventory) but it´s still Gordon fighting the combine and rebels helping him to achieve it. This is a small episode consisting of a varied set of locales with unique art made specifically to bring Source to the look of the South American region in the 1980s.

Classic of the Month Stream – Cosmonaut – July 2021

Source mod time! This month I picked Dolmo’s Cosmonaut for the Classic of the Month. This standalone release is an expanded version of his entry in 2018’s NostalgiaVille.

I’ll stream Cosmonaut just under the wire (in most time zones at least) on Saturday July 31st, about 12pm (noon) Eastern US Time (5pm in the UK, 6pm Central Europe).


As usual, the stream will be on the RunThinkShootLive Twitch Channel, and the recording will later be uploaded to the Classic of the Month playlist on the RTSL YouTube channel.

Uplinked

for Half-Life

Half-Life, Uplink, and more.

Uplinked is a series of eleven maps that aims to be an extension to “Forget About Freeman!”. Uplinked takes place between the original maps, hence it can be started from “Forget About Freeman!” or “Black Mesa Inbound” like the original game. The general premise is the same as the Half-Life demo, Uplink (tune the transmitter to gain access to Lambda Complex). Locations vary from Uplink or Half-Life Alpha inspired to completely original ones. Be aware that Uplinked has more puzzles compared to the original game, therefore might require more thinking.
