7 DECEMBER 2009, Leeds, England– Lewis Denby, video game journalist and creator of the episodic Post Script mod for Half-Life 2: Episode 2, today announces that Episode 1 of the series will be released on 18 December 2009.

The episode, the first in a collection of short total conversion modifications, is currently undergoing an extensive testing phase, in preparation for last-minute tidying before its release in the run-up to Christmas.

To coincide with the news, three new screenshots have been unveiled. A brand new website has also been launched, hosted by Resolution Magazine, of which Denby is editor.

In Post Script, players will explore a desolate town and its surrounding areas, while piecing together fragments of a disjointed narrative in an attempt to solve the mystery of a catastrophic event that occurred some time before the events of the game. Post Script backgrounds traditional gameplay mechanics in favour of slow-paced exploration and discovery.

Each short episode of the mod, weighing in at between 10 and 20 minutes per instalment, will require a copy of Valve Software’s Half-Life 2: Episode 2 to run.

Review builds will be available shortly. Any press interested in covering the game should send an email to to be added to the mailing list.
