Chapter 5 Released!

Hi all,

Chapter 5 has been released! Titled “The Eyes of the People”, it concludes the arc we began in Chapter 3, “The Pit”, in which Leyla Poirier and Albert Kempinski integrate themselves into the city of New Franklin and become embroiled in a conflict between the city’s centres of power.

Chapter 6 will go into production later this year, with another interlude taking place between Chapters 5 and 6, and featuring a location that we have yet to see in “A Place in the West”! We’re going east, curling back towards the Combine capital…

In terms of Chapter 6, “The Prisoner”, the key word would be “coup”. It’s very much a two-parter with Chapter 7, and they’re both incredibly action-packed! 5 is the tipping point into a much wider, more brutal conflict, which is something you’ll understand once you’ve reached its final pages!



This release also contains some wallpapers that we’ve put together using the original resolution images of the comic. We always optimise and shrink the images for distribution to try and keep the app size down, so we thought this would be a good way to share some of the more originally sized art. You can find them in the “Wallpapers” folder from your “A Place in the West” directory. (Fun fact: Even these wallpapers aren't full resolution...)



Though we still haven’t shipped the Commentary track for Chapter 2, (and for good reason that you’ll hopefully hear when it comes out!) Ross and Mike will also be recording commentary tracks for Chapters 3 and 4 in the coming weeks. Reach out if you have any questions about the production, or events or characters in either chapter. The plan is for all 3 of these commentary tracks to be released by the end of October.

In the meantime, enjoy Chapter 5, and let us know what you think of it!

Best,
Mike & Ross

Chapter 5 Releases Monday!

Hi all,

The store page for Chapter 5 is now up! “The Eyes of the People” will be launching on Monday, but we wanted to give you an early taste of what it’ll be about and what kinds of things you can expect. This is the first time that we’ve put up a page ahead of time, so if you like it, please let us know!



Chapter 5 wraps up the “Masquerade” arc that began with Chapter 3, “The Pit”. When it goes live, we’ll also have an announcement that teases a bit about what the next arc holds. There will be other goodies coming with this release, so add it to your wishlist and check it out on Monday!

İncelemeler

“Issue #1 of A Place in the West [...] nails the universe it’s sourced from without being overzealous, and could easily be a licensed comic book from a big name publisher doing a Half-Life comic that I would actually buy off the shelf.”
4/5 – Outright Geekery

“The overall production value is easily on par with any officially-sanctioned Valve product. It’s easy to imagine Half-Life: A Place In The West being sold in physical format in various comic book stores.”
4.5/5 – Hey Poor Player

“With each new chapter, A Place in the West had me on the edge of my seat, desperate to find out what would happen next.”

Bu Oyun Hakkında

What is A Place in the West?

Half-Life: A Place in the West is a fan-made comic book set within Valve's acclaimed Half-Life universe, in which Earth has fallen under the grip of the totalitarian Combine empire following a scientific experiment gone very wrong.

As a group of military commandos sweep across the American wasteland kidnapping children, a troubled father, an intrepid young scientist, and an ancient alien warrior are drawn to the strange city from which the attackers sprung: New Franklin. Once inside, they discover a powerful secret, but the city holds many dangers, and deceptive temptations. Faced with warring clans, diabolical experiments, a treacherous conspiracy, and the growing shadow of the Combine, they must unlock New Franklin’s mysteries before it’s too late - and the lives of everyone in the city hang in the balance.

A Place in the West delivers a compelling story, and a complex and intriguing cast of all-new characters, drawing on the rich mythology of the Half-Life universe in an entirely new medium for the series.

The comic will run for a total of thirteen chapters, the first of which, Following Portents, is available for free to download and comes to a total of 38 pages. The remaining chapters will be released sequentially as paid-DLC, and will vary between 25-30 pages in length.

Do I need to be Familiar with Half-Life?

Nope! The first chapter features a three-page prologue designed to bring new readers up to speed with the world of Half-Life. A Place in the West is also set in the interim between Half-Life and Half-Life 2, which means that you needn't be familiar with Valve's later games anyway. That isn't to say, however, that you won't find exciting things to enjoy if you are familiar with the series.

What Other Features Are There?

The comic is displayed and presented in an app designed by ourselves for the best possible reading experience. Through a fully-animated menu screen, derived in style from the menus of Half-Life 2, you can quickly and easily navigate between the comic pages and chapters, adjusting zoom & language options, the credits, and the extras section. The extras section will be continuously updated over the course of the comic's production, and will include a series of three-to-five-page comic 'shorts' that further develop the world of New Franklin and its occupants, as well as some "Behind the Scenes" commentary videos!

The comic is also available in PDF form; simply purchase the comic, and a copy will be automatically downloaded into your Steam files. This will enable you to read A Place in the West in whatever format you see fit: be it via our app, or as a PDF on your mobile device.
