"In a world no longer updated by Valve, RED and BLU must face the fears of exploits, bugs, and engineers that aren't confined to laws of the Source engine.

Part of the lore:
Since Valve no longer updates TF2, the Source engine can't prevent outside entities from compromising the game's environment. G-Man from the HL universe uses this to his advantage to port himself to TF2 where he uses Engineers to wipe every map of opposing characters. Engineers have the untapped ability to create new maps and wonders. No other character can do that. Which is why G-Man uses them to do his work. But they can't attack the team as is. So with the help of one willing Engie to change the literal framework of every other Engie, they're able to do things other team members can't because they're still in some way confined to Source engine code. There's lots of other things involved in the story but that'll be for another time.

All music/sounds used from Half-Life 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Portal 2, and TF2. Feel free to ask for specific wav file names.

Since I looked at his first video of the Odd engineers I thought '' this is fuckin ''. I hope you do not stop with this beautiful story because I want to see more. After all the history and good and animation is also more sad to see that this beauty here is not very well known. Anyway, good job and continue.

Thanks man, I appreciate it.

Sucks this didn't get nominated. Along with Augmented Reality, this was my favorite drama entry this year. It's well animated, it's dripping with atmosphere, it's great. I hope you do make more Odd Engie videos, it's one of the best ideas I've seen for a SFM.

Legitimately feels like a horror movie (well, a comedy)
