Am I alone in noticing lots of similarities between Ravenholm and Manke's 'They Hunger' mod for HL1? I was half expecting zombies to start coming up out of the graves in that last bit... although, they may have done, actually, I wasn't paying attention. I was too busy hacking at them with a crowbar to notice (distinct lack of ammunition in that town...). I'm also pretty sure that a few of the sounds made by the new and improved zombies are similar to the noises the zombies in 'They Hunger' made as well. Did Valve make some sort of deal with him or something, is it just coincidence or is it just me?

They were interviewed not long before the source code was stolen last year. Maybe Manke scetched out some maps for ValvE to go on. I do know that Manke isn't making a TH for HL2 but he will be making another horror mod (Well at least when he e-mailed me). I don't know if he's actually been employed since then. :uhm:
