In "Get a Life" you embody Alexander Zemlinsky, a subway technician suffering from leukaemia.
Alex is not, unlike the protagonists in most games, an invincible super-soldier. But you wouldn't call him normal either, because there is something in his past that connects him with the events that are about to happen in the course of the story (we want to keep the suspense, so nothing more on that...).

* GaL will run on the latest version of the Source Engine, so that means you'll see HDR and the enhanced shadow system (as seen in HL2: Episode 1) in "Get a Life" as well
* To give the player the best gaming experience possible, GaL will offer a custom HUD, an innovative healing system with several damage zones, drugs that will trigger a "bullet-time" effect, upgradeable weapons and enhanced enemy AI
* About 11 hours of gameplay
* 24 maps with varied environments
* 61 characters
* 13 weapons

But some people complains about the difficulty of the mod and some bugs. Even if the beta-tests helps to reduce the number of bugs, when a mod is released there are often surprises, and GAL was no exception...

Great mod, I was really hooked in the beginning but as a word of advice I think its too difficult at times, specially when you consider the fact that the moment you get hit once, no matter what, you start bleeding. I found myself countless times loading from my previous save state just because I was getting hit by spiders almost every time and I either didn't want to use my last remaining bandage or I didn't have any to use. It became frustrating at times that I couldn't enjoy the gameplay as much because I was just too concerned about spiders lurking in the darkness somewhere. The fact that you can't use the flashlight while you shoot one of your weapons also works against yourself in this case. But overall, I like the creepy atmosphere.
