Half-Life 2 Toronto Mod

Ever wondered what Toronto would be like if it were conquered by aliens and converted into a work camp, cut off from all other human settlement? I know I have. At least once an hour.

Well, intrepid gamers, wonder no more! Thanks to some fancypants programming by students at George Brown College's Game Design Program, you can now download a mod for Half Life 2 and play in an apocalypsized TO. Settings include Yonge-Dundas Square, The Eaton Center , Mel Lastman Square, St. Michael's Hospital and the TTC.

Hmmm. I'd more or less assumed the TTC was already being run by an evil race of alien overlords. Talk about art imitating life.

Yonge-Dundas Square after the alien invasion. Nice to see they spruced it up a little.
