The infamous Half-Life 2 achievements remembered when Gabe Newell fired a garden gnome into space • .net

Donate $ 1 to all viewers’ charities.

Half-Life 2: Episode 2’s Little Rocket Man achievement (one of the best achievements ever created, to me) is Valve’s Gabe Newell preparing to launch a garden gnome for charity. So ready to be a reality.

Little Rocket Man is a notorious tricky achievement to ensure safety, playing a completely harmless garden gnome (called Gnome Chompski) from the start of Half-Life 2: Episode 2 to the end of the game. I sent it to.

This is legendary. This is largely due to Chompski’s casual disregard for the laws of physics. This often results in gnome being launched at high speeds as a result of open-top vehicles reaching speeds faster than speed. Single Digit-And Newell commemorates it as part of a drive to raise money for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Starship, a pediatric hospital in Auckland, New Zealand.

Weta Workshop Gnome Chompski.

The entire company is a collaboration between New Zealand design and manufacturing company Weta Workshop (building a 6-inch Chompski from titanium) and Rocket Lab, which launches gnome into space as part of a “ride sharing mission.” 16 flights taking off from Launch Complex 1 in Mahia, New Zealand within 14 days of UTC on November 15.

Flight 16’s main purpose is to launch 30 satellites into sun-synchronous orbit, but Gnome Chompski carries more than just a kick. He is the focus of his mission to “test and certify new 3D printing technologies that can be used in future spacecraft components.” Unfortunately, if you re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere during the off-orbit process, you’ll see the gnomes burn out. Intentionally.

Rocket Lab calls this mission “a tribute to the innovation and creativity of gamers around the world.” Newell will donate $ 1 to Starship to anyone who sees the gnome rise into space online within 24 hours of a live or explosion. .. Rocket Lab will host the live stream as soon as the release date is confirmed.
