Plan of Attack was the first full conversion mod of Half-Life 2.
We stayed quiet during development, and then announced both the game and an imminently playable beta on April Fool’s Day in 2005.
It was no joke! Anticipation was high for April 15th – fans had to wait a full two weeks for us to release the beta.
I came up with the Plan of Attack coloring book to help bide the time.
I drew some scenes with permanent marker, like a soldier blowing up so hard his shoe flies off. I invited the community to color them in!
People were into it, and we actually got some Photoshop and Microsoft Paint creations back from fans!
