At long last, this much-anticipated short film has been released.
I think it goes without saying, but this is really, really awesome.
My only criticisms were the length and the story. I was expecting it to be a bit longer. I thought that with the plotline they had, they could have done much more than 12 minutes. I also would have wanted to see more background on how and why Shephard returned to Earth.
And when exactly this takes place? During the Portal Storms? During the Seven Hour War? After the Seven Hour War? I also found it a bit odd that they actually gave an Overwatch Soldier a short sword.
Otherwise, this was quite great, and I would love to see more. Sadly, Infectious Design is moving to new things after Beyond Black Mesa.
It’s a shame, but at least we got the movie out of it.
