This is awesome! It’s a short fan-made film following some resistance fighters as they escape from City 17; the setting for Half-Life 2. If you’ve played the game you’ll see how well they’ve managed to capture the oppressive feeling of the place and the actual visual style is bang-on, something Hollywood would never be able to match. If you haven’t played the game, it should easily stand up on its own merit.
So I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and get my own Twitter. Call me a lemming if you want, but it’s best to adopt these things fairly early on to ensure you get a good seat to watch the inevitable crashing-and-burning-into-internet-obscurity of the thing in all its magnificence, if you ask me!
At least you can all check I’m still alive between posts using this thing. Well, as long as I update Twitter a bit more than I do here..
It may come as no surprise that I enjoy my zombie-related media; books, games, movies and even board games; the book World War Z is no exception! The fantastic artwork above got its creator a job working on the film adaptation and is making the rounds on the internet at the moment, seems the image was first discovered on io9 but soon snapped up by Worst Previews and SlashFilm among others.
