Porto, Portugal (Walkthrough)

Description
Simple environment set in the Portuguese city of Porto.
No combat or gameplay for this one, just a immersive environment to walk around in.

After playing Half Life Alyx I fell in love with VR, the immersion factor is unparalleled with this technology!
The experience inspired me to give the new 'Source 2 Engine' a try and make a small VR environment to walk around in for myself.

The inspiration to make this scene came from the situation we find ourselves in 2020, due to the lockdown we couldn't go back to Portugal for our yearly vacation, making me pretty homesick and missing my family. So I decided to use the extra free time and tools at my disposal and bring "home" back to us instead, since VR can be so immersive why not recreate the kind of cozy cobblestone streets and colorful buildings I grew up around.

Even though this environment was made with a certain heartache, hopefully you can feel the sense of hope it tries to convey, this too shall pass and a hard situation is always a good opportunity to find good and growth.

Peace, and stay safe everybody!

@Leojrenrek That was actually one of my initial plans, but I've been so busy with work while working on my own game on my personal time, I've never had the time to get back to this. Still hoping I do eventually, thanks for your comment!

Maybe add some cats and citizens? It would be great to see some life.

I would LOVE to have gameplay in a beautiful map like this. Fighting combine here would give me Lost Coast vibes. Someone please remake the Lost Coast in HL:A with this level of beauty and detail. I'm tired of fighting combine in dingy sewers in every mod.
