About This Game

Snowdrop Escape is a story-driven modification for Half-Life 2. Its events unfold a few years before Gordon Freeman's appearance in City-17. The invaders are tightening their grip on the dictatorship while The Resistance is slowly gathering strength. Plenty of abandoned, yet not rusty, assets remain outside The Combine's control, drawing the attention of the rebels. However, a third party enters the fray, reluctant to share their technologies with either the Invaders or the Rebels. This is the party you play for.

You assume the role of a professional mercenary named James. Your employers task you with infiltrating a rebel-held laboratory complex. You are to clear out any unwanted guests, initiate the emergency protocol, all while avoiding attracting The Combine's attention. As it turns out, this is no easy task...
