Happy Paranoia Day!

Paranoia was finished one year ago today! Bats for everyone! I could sit here and tell you what a great achievement its been...so I will!

On PlanetPhilip it's been downloaded 11 times.

On FBSBanana it's been downloaded 150 times.

On garrysmod.org it has been downloaded 13122 times...

And from the in-game Toybox on Garry's Mod it has been downloaded on 56,296 separate occasions.

So I feel totally justified in turning December 30th into yet another surreal holiday. But of course you're not here to hear about that old map. No, you wonder where Insomnia is. I assure you that despite the lack of videos or any evidence of it's continued existence I am working diligently to make it the single greatest map ever released on the Source engine.

And I do have pictures!



Here we see the Lens, if OSHA ever saw this thing they would have a conniption. Thankfully they don't exist in the same calabi-yau manifold as the Paranoia Universe.



Fabulous energy generators! This particular model harnesses zero-point energy from a vacuum chamber inside it. Because of this, entropy in the Paranoia Zone is slowly decreasing.



One of many deluxe prism-based transporters that are used to move through sentient non-euclidean space.



Fun fact: Real Estate is the single most dangerous and important job in the Paranoia Dimension.



Trains are another popular, if very dangerous, mode of transportation.



While mansions and white rooms with black curtains are abundant in Paranoia-Land many citizens prefer humble apartments as they're easier to flee from in case Tarkus attacks.



The Combine have a significant presence in both Paranoia and Insomnia. But not even they truly understand their purpose for being there.



Parking garages are strange, nigh-mystical places in Real Space; they're are even more so in Insomnia.



Finally, a visit to a familiar place.
