    Tinypic sucks because it relinked most of the images to something else :(
    Proper links will be fixed soon.


    Mind you, this is not a mod or is it playable in any form (sadly). I recently got into GMOD and thought about this mock-up while fiddling with the game. :)

    Anyways, the basic gist of this is that "What if TF2 had an RPG-style story mode?" So with my knowledge of Photoshop and the powerful GMOD program, I thought of making up situations and taking screenshots that shows these "What if" scenarios.

    The following collage of photos will give you what I've done so far. :D Oh yeah, this is the first time I've used GMOD so I hope I did well :eek:

    Anyways, the pictures will showcase the following events:

    Heavy and Medic (first two party members) are looking for their friend (The scout) whose whereabouts remain unknown until they got a tip that he was last scene in the outskirts of Dustbowl. The two set out to find him. They ask around (even stopping by at the local weapon shop) and find out he could be inside an Abandoned Mine a mile from the town.

    The local sniper is said to be the go-to guy when it comes to rescuing missions in the town of Dustbowl so Heavy and Medic set out to ask him for help.

    Enjoy!

    I was supposed to put it there but since it's the journal of the party, they'd jot it down accordingly. :p

    Don't worry, the cutscene where Heavy and Medic talk to John will have the subtitles say "zombie goasts. :laugh:

    I read this over at some forum or other. The Steam forum, I think, except I didn't see the full thing.

    Awesome work, and very inspiring. I'm hoping you'll make more! ^^

    Oh my :O

    That's pretty cool! Though I'm more of a Digg person myself. Nonetheless, nice to know it's going around :p

    Thanks again guys!

    Oh yeah, new pics to come in the coming hours! Stay tuned! It'll feature the following

    -"FOR SCIENCE!" & "Full-Life Consequences" Sidequest scenes
    -Party menu
    -Leveling up
    -Battle system

    That would be the final compilation till I release "The Prologue", the first art of the story.

    This is awesome! The overall look and party system seems to reflect a kinda MassEffect system with inns and gunshops a la Fallout. Awesome work!:)
