Feast your eyes and ears on Michigan J. Protocol, a brief but excellent Half-Life/Michigan J. Frog mashup created by The Steam Community's Zachariah.

The Canadian-based cinematic designer produced the short for "Critter Week," a machinima challenge geared toward showcasing all the nightmarish creatures of the Half-Life video game franchise. The challenge is being hosted in anticipation of this Friday's release of Black Mesa, the long-awaited Half-Life remake.
