MINERVA: Episodic, Single-Player Half-Life 2

Yeah, so you've looked behind the curtain, only to discover the whole world is a carefully manufactured lie. But to what ends?

Well, I'm Adam Foster, and these are my experiments in Half-Life 2 mapping!

Excuse me, I seem to be having terrible problems with my steam installation -

"My steam just isn't working properly."

"Have you tried adjusting the valves?"

"That might work. Thanks!"

Georgetown Steam Plant, just south of Seattle. With complicated opening arrangements that mean it's only open to the public the first Sunday of each month, it's absolutely worth visiting for anyone interested in dusty old industrial machinery.

In other news, I've also acquired a midget computer. Embarrasingly, in the past I've bought entire generations of desktop PCs and dedicated GPUs with lower technical specifications than this. It's currently in use prototyping the next generation of blog-beast-oriented web systems. The wonders shall never cease.

Post-Apocalyptic -

I probably should edit this into the previous post, only I like the pictures too much - have a suitably post-apocalyptic, derelict wind-farm spotted somewhere or other.

Next Flickr set will be an blog-post edit, honest.

Edit 2012-05-03: lava tubes and volcanoes!

Science! -

I suppose when most people think of Hawaii, they think of palm trees, tropical beaches and pineapple-based beverages. Not me. My vision is of desolate volcanic landscapes, snow-capped mountains and vast optical telescopes on the edge of space. So, I finally made it to Hawaii's Big Island.

Coming up next: derelict wind turbines, lava tubes, more volcanic landscapes and dusty scrubland with ancient petroglyphs carved into the lava underfoot...

Ominous Cosmonauts -

In a bid to update this blog-beast slightly more frequently, have a cosmonaut or two from last year. I am punctual in all the things I do.

Also, if you're in a steampunky kind of mood, have a working Intertype machine, from less than a month ago!

Imaginary Islands -

I had absolutely nothing to do with its creation, but I do have a certain penchant for imaginary digital islands. Weird, experimental, beautiful and perhaps willfully resisting interpretation, please go play Dear Esther.


In other news, have a top-secret nuclear bunker. I never realised quite how pretty Essex could be.
