The time has arrived. It was not easy, but after nonstop work in the past weeks I’m thrilled to announce that Nightmare House 2 is officially out!

// Nightmare House 2 //
August 22nd, 2010

Nightmare House 2 is a free, horror-themed first-person-shooter game, and the direct successor of the first classic horror map pack "Nightmare House". Nightmare House 2 is based on the Source Engine by Valve, also considered a modification (mod) made for Half Life: Episode 2.

The story resumes with the player lost and confused in a hospital known as "Never Lose Hope". With no understanding of how you came to be there, there's only a vague memory of the mysterious, haunting girl from Nightmare House. Soon it will be difficult to determine between a dream and reality. How long will it take you to realize that escape is not an option?

IMPORTANT: This modification requires a registered Steam client with Half Life 2: Episode Two installed.

For the .RAR installation:
Extract the folder "NH2" with all its contents to your SourceMods folder e.g C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\SourceMods\
If you do not know how to extract a .rar archive you can open them with programs such as WinRar or 7-Zip, these can be freely downloaded off the internet. WinZip will NOT work.
If \SourceMods\ folder does not exist under your \Steam\steamapps\ folder, create it.

You should now have Steam\steamapps\SourceMods\NH2\ as a folder with the file "GameInfo.txt" inside it.

Restart Steam and Nightmare House 2 should appear in your game list.

For the .EXE installation:
Run the installer and follow the onscreen instructions.
Restart Steam and Nightmare House 2 should appear in your game list.

I played through this and i've thoroughly shat my pants. All of the horror parts were pants-shittingly scary, the action parts felt badass and i was pleased with the ending. This is now one of my favorites.

You can play it on gmod or the original half-life as the engine was updated, there will just be not many textures and I imagine that everything would look like ****.

Cyowolf Aug 23 2010 says:

Found an odd bug.

When I alt-tabbed out of the game, I got a vertex error.

Then, whenever I alt-tabbed out of the game, it would crash. I know the solution is to simply never alt-tab out of it, but I'd like to see this fixed, if possible. Not exactly game-breaking, but very annoying.

This mod does not like alt-tabbing....

Oh wow, this like being in a horror movie, except that you are actually intelligent and...uh...well, not going to spoil the rest of it. :P

Go and play this mod.

And dude, this deserves to be a game of its own. FREAKING AWESOME. You know horror.
