    Escape from City 17



    >>>> It is strongly recommended that you click on the video above to watch it in HD! <<<<

    The next time you launch Steam, you will probably be greeted with an announcement detailing the video "Escape From City 17", and incredible short film (this is only Part 1) featuring a live-action escape from the famous setting of Half-Life 2. While you can watch it via the YouTube window above, it's significantly better (and more impressive) if you view it via YouTube's site, then click on the "Watch in HD" link underneath the video.

    The short film Escape from City 17: Part One, viewable on YouTube via the link below, was inspired by the Half-Life 2 episodes and chronicles the escape from City 17 by some members of the citizens resistance. It was created by The Purchase Brothers, a commercial directing duo, and their small team based in Toronto, Canada. They have been Half-Life enthusiasts from the start and have created this short, the first in a series, on a shoestring budget using handmade costumes, some donated equipment, and the Source SDK, not to mention lots of their own blood, sweat and (we assume) tears. It was sent to Valve unannounced, and we were blown away -- the production quality certainly exceeds that of the usual community-made movies we see. We're told the second episode is nearing completion, and we can't wait to see what's in store. We hope that you enjoy the series.

    PLEASE NOTE! This live-action video contains scenes of blood and harsh violence, and may not be appropriate for younger audiences or sensitive viewers.

    I think the power of Steam may actually be crashing (or at least causing a major slowdown) YouTube, the direct link is below:
