So you thought that Portal short film looked great? Well get ready for the second episode of Escape From City 17, a short film that is based on Half-Life 2. And let me tell you that it is simply amazing. The first part of Escape From City 17 was well polished so we were expecting great things from this second part. And oh no, we weren’t disappointed. This short film lasts almost 14 minutes so make sure to check it out after the jump.
This short film is basically a story about the connection that grows between two people during the battle for city 17. Made in the same gritty guerrilla style as the original, it was made on a $250 budget, previously owned/donated software, time, and an HVX200 camera.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
