Half Life: Escape From City 17 Part Two.

Finally, the Purchase Brothers have made and released Escape From City 17 Part Two, this one more or less, follows on from Part One, and was made on a $250 budget, but has good CGI and sorts. A lot of time was put into it, Part Two is 14 minutes long. Which is 10+ minutes longer than the first, and a lot of effort was put into the action scenes and relationships between characters, ish.

(The opening shot of Part Two looks amazing, an overview of City 17.)

For those who haven't seen it yet, check out Part One (isn't as good as Two though)

Part One:

Part Two:

Visuals are great but that's about it.

Something wasn't right with sounds, or lack of them. The volume on certain things seemed too quite or drowned out by several other sounds. (I am not talking about the intentional bits.)

Cba to comment any further. 02:21.

I know what you mean, but it's the closest and best thing we have to a live action Half Life. Which has a huge following and fan base, so I welcome the Purchase Brothers to produce more of these episodes in their spare time, the incredibly small budget doesn't show in what they make which I think is great. Having all of these actors willing to put in their time without demanding money. And the props look fairly decent too.

I agree with this. I think it was pretty damned good, considering the budget.

It's pretty badass considering it's not a professional production and done with very little money.
