Worked hard on this today. I like how it turned out.

There is not enough love out there for Cross and Green. Shame, Decay was awesome wish we got a modern Half Life multiplayer game.


DaPretzelBoi

Yeah. I really want closure on Decay's characters. We went from Decay's ending where they helped stop the Resonance Cascade to Shephard finds Gina's body and Colette is detained by the G-man so quickly, and then their story was never elaborated or expanded on again.


boghos_

Collete is PROBABLY detained, as Pitchford said. Yeah these two definitely need more story, now that Alyx came out hopefully we see more stuff


Bamma4

Spoilers for opposing force >!Didn’t Gina die according to HL opposing force!<


DaPretzelBoi

Yeah it was also confirmed on Twitter unceremoniously.


Venizia

It's randy pitchfuck, you can ignore anything he says.


DaPretzelBoi

Fair, but it's the closest we'll ever get to closure from Valve most likely.


CrypticAlpha

You tried with the spoiler tags but it’s already 2 responses up


Bamma4

So it is


ImBigBrother

Isn't opposing force considered not entirely canon due to the inclusion of stuff like Race X?


Bamma4

Race x fits pretty neatly into the timeline Race x seemed to have mastered teleportation and once the nuke went off they closed up the portals and retreated before the combine joined the fight


The_Point-Man

Cross’s body is found on the den world so she and Green are dead


DaPretzelBoi

It's been confirmed on Twitter by the game's writer that Gina is dead and Colette is "probably" detained by the Gman, like I said.


Adrian_shepard_HECU

Thanks for including me bro


GentleBarney

Hey bro


Adrian_shepard_HECU

Hey bro


GentleBarney

Where’s Gordon, bro?


Adrian_shepard_HECU

I don't know, bro


Adrian_shepard_HECU

Hey bro


DaPretzelBoi

Anything for you bro, good luck getting out of that Osprey in the void, man.


Adrian_shepard_HECU

I already have


Smol-Vehvi

Wha-


Adrian_shepard_HECU

Ssssh


DaPretzelBoi

Containment breach moment


fredrick-vontater

Hey when gman letting you out of stasis?


Adrian_shepard_HECU

Shhh, i escaped


JaaaaaaacobExCraze

Its the pals! Cicero Fryman, Adrian shreperd, Barn Hollucan, Those two girls I dont know about


SteelEbola

Wayyyyy back there was a co-op multiplayer expansion for Half-Life 1 called Half-Life: Decay. Real easy to miss I think it only officially released on the Playstation port of Half-Life, still not available on Steam. Was kinda short but you did a bunch of background stuff that tied into the whole Black Mesa story. Their story and characters were dropped like Shepherd, never to be heard from again, but at least you can play Opposing Force in 2021 without owning a PS2 and physical copy of HL1, despite Decay being an official Gearbox release. Can't believe we don't have a new co-op Half-Life, or at least the ability to give Valve some money to play Decay on PC.

Decay is baller.


joshsmog

>Wayyyyy back ​ dont


Curb__

Cero awesome


Kobinesejalin

What are you Italian? Who the hell says Cicero Fryman?


Sciman3010

Google Translated Half Life had Cicero as Gordon’s first name pretty consistently, hence the joke.


Smithens

Looks great mate. Half Life and Pink Floyd are two of my favorite things. It’s only missing those bare booties… but who needs that when you have Gordon’s POSTERIOR.


DaPretzelBoi

Glad you like it. Not sure what you're referring to, though.


randomemkayfanatic

So pink Floyd has an album where women are painting like their previous albums while sitting in front of a pool in the same positions as what you Drew.


pswii360i

I thought it was a PF reference too. [Here's the pic for those wondering](https://images.app.goo.gl/nyuoZZd47ztzCEz3A)


Smithens

Quite the uncanny resemblance if OP did it on accident. Maybe his brain remembered that poster when he drew it


2900nomore

Where is Otis???????????????????????


DaPretzelBoi

He's taking the picture.

DaPretzelBoi

Same. Shame we'll never see them again from Valve, tho.


LordMacDonald8

Well Gina died during the BM incident and Collette may be the scientist in Alyx


DaPretzelBoi

They brought back Eli after 15 years, if they want to they can bring back Gina after 20. I'd imagine it'd be a good motivator for the Gman to get Colette to cooperate, after all she's very chaotic and I doubt would just listen to some bureaucratic time traveler who abducts her.


LordMacDonald8

Gina's corpse was shown, Eli's wasn't


DaPretzelBoi

I'm referring to >!the end of Half-Life: Alyx when Eli is brought back after he died at the end of Episode 2.!<


LordMacDonald8

Oh that's what you meant, yeah maybe but it's unlikely


DaPretzelBoi

Well yeah it's unlikely, it requires Valve to make a new game AND bring back 2 Gearbox characters.


LordMacDonald8

Gina was Valve created, actually. She was the hologram on the HEV track.


DaPretzelBoi

Yeah, but she wasn't really a major character. She wasn't a protagonist until Gearbox made Decay.


bipolit

Then they all grabbed beers


imdeadinsideshit

Where alyx?


DaPretzelBoi

This is HL1. She's 7 and is probably sleeping, as I'd imagine it's past her bed time.


imdeadinsideshit

Ohhh. I thought this was everyone together in stasis. Except for Barney.


DaPretzelBoi

Gina was never put in stasis. She died.


ThePixelatedPyro

This is really good, but is that supposed to be HL1 Gordon, cause if so you got the wrong suit model, but this is still a really good art peace, 10/10


DaPretzelBoi

Meh, just used the most recent model for all of them. Also thanks.


AjWaderz

Nice Art Bro


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks.


imdeadinsideshit

Where alyx?


pakiyeetus

baby


_Thijs_bakker_

Looks amazing! But may I ask why you used HL2 Gordon and HL1 Barney?


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks. I wanted to use the most recent models for all of them while keeping the same outfits from HL1 or at least similar ones.


Davvv64

Good jorb!


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks.


eur0child

Is that inspired by Pink Floyd's women poster?


DaPretzelBoi

I'm afraid I don't know what you're referring to.

pakiyeetus

I like this image as it shows the differences between the Mark IV and V.


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks.


jack_hectic

How can I play Decay on the computer? :(


DaPretzelBoi

https://www.moddb.com/mods/half-life-decay/downloads/half-life-decay Download it here. It should prompt you to install it into your already existing Half-Life common folder. Install it there, then restart Steam. It will appear in your Steam library, and you can launch it there.


jack_hectic

don't i need a second player?


DaPretzelBoi

You can set up a server to play multiplayer, but you can play singleplayer, too, you just have to swap between characters by hitting g.


No-Seaweed-4456

Cute


DaPretzelBoi

Thank you!


yourlast3emails

amazing art! love the inclusion of green and cross :)


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks!

TheKrzyKyle

Wow awesome! Nice job 🙌


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks.


Russian_hat12

👍


Strange_Exit

Amazing


DaPretzelBoi

Thank you.


Whompa

No Alyx?


DaPretzelBoi

It's past her bedtime. She's only 7 years old during the events of Half-Life 1, after all.


Whompa

Haha good point


kagerururu

Now Barney owes ALL of them beer. Also a cute touch to see Gina and Colette's hands right next to each other. A co-op like no other.


DaPretzelBoi

Yeah UwU


peo_skata

Looks cool.


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks.


spartan1191

Damn, nice work bud!


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks.


fuerzadetorsion

That is I want to see in Half-Life 3.


Pins_Pins

DaPretzelBoi

Thank you!


Pandelicia

I can almost hear them singing "the bright side of life"


Prophet_59

James-matthews2

The boys just be vibing in New Mexico till Half-Life 4 drops...


tf2_coconut

I like it, can u make a version with black lines?


DaPretzelBoi

Thanks. I could, but it'd look bad, hence why there are none.


tf2_coconut

I refer just to be like the colors separated


tf2_coconut

A little line


leverine36

Why is Gordon wearing the Mark V?


DaPretzelBoi

I dunno, recent model. That reminds me of a fun fact. Gina Cross, who designed the HEV suits, actually had a prototype of the Mark V suit being worked on just before the Resonance Cascade.


leverine36

Where was this stated?


DaPretzelBoi

PS2 manual I believe.


Softest-Dad

Uhm, wheres the Jet ?


DaPretzelBoi

It's taking the picture.


Softest-Dad

Ah ya got me


A_Gray_Phantom

Is the second guy from the left Adrian, or Mitchell? 😏
