Valve apes Apple's '1984' ad to announce Half-Life 2 for OS X

Free yourself - Half-Life 2 coming to Mac tomorrow

TODO alt text

We knew Half-Life 2 was coming to the Mac -a multi-platform Steam madethat inevitable. Well, it's coming tomorrow, and Valve has announced the release in typical Valve style -with something neat.

The teaser is a homage to Apple's famous - perhaps infamous - ad which depicts a woman throwing a sledgehammer through a projection of Big Brother, thus freeing the hivemind (with the power of the Macintosh, of course!). Valve's version replaces the key characters, obviously...

If for some reason you've never seen the 1984 Apple ad, watch it below. Maybe next week we'll introduce you to Coca-Cola.
