Status: Partially Found

Get Your Free TVs! is a tech demo shown off at SIGGRAPH 2000 and SIGGRAPH 2001 behind closed doors.[1] The tech demo was to show off what VALVe was working on with their new Source Engine that was being used to create the upcoming game at the time, Half-Life 2. The demo could have made players take TVs at a variety of different locations and place them to a location while avoiding Striders, a huge three-legged enemy in Half-Life 2.[2]

Discovery Efforts[edit | edit source]

In 2003, Half-Life 2 was leaked to the public by Axel Gembe. In this leak, several assets from Get Your Free TVs! were found which included textures for a gas mask citizen, the main player models used for the demo, and a modified version of a map that was shown in the only screenshot of the tech demo.
