"Something doesn't feel right, Barney..." "You got that right Lieutenant." ipretty much just an excuse to make a poster with fancy vector graphics but im gonna share my idea for it anyways. Alyx and Barney get captured by the combine and placed in a simulation that makes them think they're in a sci fi 2003 noir/E3 demo styled reality. gritty, lots really muted green for some reason, and layered with enough nonsense mysteries to keep anyone oblivious and entertained forever. but Alyx knows its bullshit and is trying to find a way out while Barney has no idea and is stuck in his role of Detective Calhoun, P.I.
