Facade - A Mod for Half-Life 2

Things aren't what they seem to be.

For some people this map is a bit "scary" but it isn't intended to be a huge scare, it was meant to be a bit creepy/weird. I haven't really made a story map before so map may have a few problems. It is also really short, but I put a good amount of time into making/fixing it. 

WARNING! Make sure godmode is OFF when you load this map, do not worry about it if you haven't turned it on manually or loaded any map before you loaded this one. The map will automatically turn godmode on in the appropriate area and turn it off when the map has completed, but if godmode was already on when it toggles godmode on it will turn it off instead of turning it on which will kill you without a doubt.
**If you fell to your death and your screen turns red then godmode was turned off.** 
**ALSO!** Turn HDR on to soften up brush shadows and overall make it look "prettier". If you are unable to enable HDR it will still be playable but there are a few things that will be either too dark or it just wont look great. 
**Headphones are recommended!!** 
**This map is for HL2: Episode 2**

    The map is very well thought through, the lighting superb and the effects as well as the ambiance is awesome. Overall, the map is very well done. After falling down during the jumping box section, the boxes fell down as well, which was disappointing because I needed to restart the level to finish. However, still regardless of that, the logic put into the map is pretty solid, and aesthetically it is pretty awesome for the horror genre. **I Liked the Map**

    This map is very abstract and takes an interesting twist in a surrealist, horror kinda way. I enjoyed it for the most part but the map to console commands sort of ruined gameplay. When you hit that hallway where everything goes slow-motion, the zombie is directly in the path and is not affected. It would have made more sense if it came from the opposite path and forced the player to move to the next location since the door in the opposite direction is locked. The same thing happened to me when I played the maze section. I did however enjoy the map and the effects that you added were enjoyable for the most part. Cheers and good luck on the contest!
