Notoriously Awesome Half-Life Fan Film Concludes With Part 2

Escape From City 17 is... it's... look, you just have to see how awesome this is.

By Alex Gralski on 8/27/2011
Sibling filmmaker duo The Purchase Brothers have already gained some serious nerd notoriety for the first part of their saga Escape From City 17 - filmed (as they say themselves) guerilla style on almost no budget without a crew, it's very much worthy of that reputation. Recently the second part of the fan film made it from filming IRL onto the Internet, and, well...



For the love of... will somebody please, in the name of all that is Half-Life, get these people a film contract? If they filmed this on $250, imagine what they could do with a few large. Valve, you could always do it. You've spent money on worse investments, and maybe it would drum up some interest for that Episode 3 thing. Oh, wait...

Not to bad for a $250 budget although you can tell with some of the integration of CG elements.

Words cannot describe just how amazing that was.... I really feel the need to play Half-Life 2 now, or at least watch Freeman's Mind.

Oh wow, I totally forgot about the first part. Though, all I can think about while watching it is how long it's been since a Half-Life game was released...

Also most the sound effects that they pulled from the game were very, very jarring.
