30 Days of Half-Life

Over the course of October, I’ll be drawing my way through the plot of Half-Life.

Follow my Twitter or Instagram for daily updates on Gordon Freeman’s worst day ever:

The story of course follows Gordon Freeman, a lowly logistics engineer (he literally just has to push around a trolley) who finds himself in the midst of an alien apocalypse after two irresponsible scientists fail to abort an incredibly reckless experiment despite some obvious warning signs.

When the original Half-Life came out it changed gaming forever. Despite the fact that Black Mesa is seemingly run by Darwin Award nominees, few games have immersed players so completely into their world & story.

The idea of the challenge is to pay tribute to this absolute gaming gem – and also to force myself to draw something every day.

P.S. As always, there’s an easter egg somewhere in there…

    1. If you look at the titles of every picture, their first letters correspond to elements of the periodic table, with the background colours matching their types. They are also in the order of appearance.

      Yeah I know, don’t know why I expected someone to notice 😀
