History

After finishing Sweet Half-Life project, Koumei Satou became a contract level designer for Namco's LEDZone project (Counter-Strike Arcade). It's safe to say he was the first professional level designer in Japanese game industry history.

When Half-Life2 was released, he started many experiments with entities at home (LEDZone doesn't use Source Engine). Then he began to work on this mod without a whole picture. He made it map by map from chapter 1.

He did everything alone in Hammer and FacePoser without any coding. It took 9 months to complete. "I had been very busy at work, so I could only use 2-3 hours a day this time.", he says.

After these months of silence (He didn't tell anyone that he was making a mod.), he called some testers from C-SEC - the Japanese HL2 mod community. One coder added chapter unlocking codes, but other parts are untouched.

You can do anything you saw in this mod with entities.
