A malfunction with the teleporter sends Gordon Freeman to a new location.
This mod features all 7 entries for the Interlopers.Net mapping competition.
Some maps have been updated.
Originally, this poll was going to be about “Have you ever found a game in your Steam Library and have no idea how it got there?” because I saw Borderlands 2 in my Library and tweeted about it and helpfully Dan Jordan told me it was on free trial.
But then I realized that it probably never happens anyway – or does it?
So, this idea came from that one.
To be honest, I don’t think I have ever taken advantage of a free trial. Basically, if I like the look of a game I buy it. That sounds a bit snobbish and I recognize that I should use these trials to play games outside of my usual genre.
I kinda wrote something along the same idea years ago called Game Radio Idea.
Well, there you have the background to this poll, but now it’s time to let me have your thoughts on these free trails and don’t forget to vote…

Aperture Tag was greenlit (is that right?) and released on Steam. It’s a mod, set in the Portal universe, where you have a paint gun, which you use to reach the end. I watched some of it on Maxtasy’s YouTube Channel and it looked Okay. But only Okay.

Author’s Note: “An episodic narrative mod.
Explore the remains of a town destroyed by its own tragedy in a collection of short, interactive vignettes.
Solve environmental puzzles and uncover the mystery of how, somewhere along the line, the whole world fell out of existence completely.”
In this 15-map mappack, you get to revisit the Black Mesa Research Facility.
Of course, nothing goes the way you expect it – that is if you expect it to go smoothly!
You will need to fight your way through and solve puzzles along the way to reach the waiting helicopter.
Are you smart and determined enough? Let’s find out.
Things are not what they seem.
You are definitely back in Ravenholm, but it’s not the where that’s in doubt, but the who!
If you survive long enough, you may make a new friend.
Set in both the heart and outside of City 17, “The Citizen Returns” contains the final chapters of our citizen’s story, as well as an updated version of Part II.
The story takes place shortly after a failed assassination attempt on Dr. Breen leads to the first ever use of the Overwatch Broadcast system by The Resistance, represented by former garage
owner Larry Soderstrom Jr.
The Combine forces decide to capture him and try to use his public repentance and execution as a means to appease the emergent rebellion.
The Citizens of City 17 however have other ideas in mind. Larry is now a symbol for the rebellion and a key asset in a bigger plot to deal a fatal blow to the Combine and its grip on humankind…
For this competition, entrants had to create an area from which the player must escape.
This “Escape” is most probably accomplished through the solving of some puzzle and/or combat.
The area can be a room, a series of rooms or even outside. The concept is that the player must find a way to move outside of the area.
I was hoping for some clever puzzles, hopefully environmental in nature and not some obscure and impossible to solve button pressing sequence.
This mod contains 3 official entries, one extra entry and a bonus map made over a longer time period.
I hate asking for money from readers, but I need to.
Firstly, James and Jonathan from GetNodecraft.Net have been AMAZING. The site, as I am sure you have noticed, is SUPER fast, but not only that but they have been very generous regarding the price I pay, so in many ways they have already donated – thanks so much guys!
There are still other costs, including the files and media server in France but the advertising does bring in more or less enough to cover those costs and the readers have always donated plenty of games to use as prizes etc.
Whilst the site no longer costs me money personally, I still like to have funds in the account to pay for any unexpected costs or emergencies etc.
So, it is with all that in mind, that I ask you to donate any spare cash you can. Of course, I also know times are tough and if you can’t then that’s fine too. I hope you continue to enjoy the site.
