Post Script: mod for Half-Life 2

Post Script is an episodic, interactive narrative, exploring a set of characters as they look back on the second end of the world.

A post-post-apocalyptic tale of humanity and inhumanity, Post Script examines the nature of society, how it shapes us and how it’s shaped by us. It asks how we respond to astonishing hostility and unexpected love. It raises big questions, but there’s a decent chance it won’t get round to answering them. It is, vestigially, a series of very short computer games, in which you do a lot of walking around and occasionally solve a lightweight puzzle.

Escape From City 17

Escape From City 17 got a nice writeup at Wired recently.

The mixed-media movie was created on a shoestring budget by gamer/filmmaker brothers David and Ian Purchase, who “borrowed a page from the machinima playbook, exporting assets from Half-Life and combining the bleak videogame imagery with photographs and traditional video.”
