You can now play Half-Life on your watch

Watches are getting crazy technical

Hey Half-Life fans looking for any kind of Half-Life fix to fill the void in your life created by Half-Life never getting a proper ending, I have some cool tech news for you.

If you happen to own an Android-powered smart watch, you can now run a version of Half-Life on your wrist, any time of any day.

Now, I’m not going to pretend to understand the technical jargon about how you get this running on your watch — you can find those instructions here — but I do know this is pretty cool in theory. In practice, the idea of controlling an FPS without a mouse, keyboard, or controller is nightmarish, but it’s still impressive nonetheless.

So, will you be running Half-Life on your watch just to prove to your friends that you can?
