Weekday Warrior is a Half-Life 2 mod made in the vein of the old-school adventure games we all came to know and love. Weekday Warrior was designed from the ground up to have all the fun of classic adventure games with none of the frustration. This game is the result of a six month project developed by students at the Guildhall at SMU. The team started development on January 2006 and finished June 7, 2006.
Set inside a modern corporate office environment the player takes on the persona of Doug Smith, a very bored man with the untapped potential for greatness. Because of Doug’s status as a corporate drone, the only way for him to explore his potential is to fantasize himself into a more exciting life. Doug, as an avid comic book fan, particularly likes to imagine himself as a character called The Mongoose, a James Bond like super-spy. Enter a plot from the upstairs office that could get Doug and all his co-workers fired and suddenly the player will have to navigate Doug through the drama and political struggle that ensues. Doug has the will to save his office, if only he had the means. Can Doug save all his coworkers from certain doom? Or actually, who cares about the rest of them, can he save himself? The Mongoose could do it…can you?
