You wake up in a dark alley, not knowing anything. What has happened anyway? You struggle after the truth and answers. Answers you want to know in the darkness and fear, which makes your heartbeat race like violent blows against your head. Where do "they" come from? What has happened? Are you just turning insane? The time is up; you can't stay there reading your smses forever. It's time to head out and find the answers. Cry of Fear is a singleplayer modification of Half-Life 1 which brings you the horror you've always been afraid of. It's a total conversion of Half-Life 1, which means it uses NO Half-Life 1 content or other peoples' files. It's all made exclusively by the developers. It also uses new gaming styles that you will rarely find in Half-Life mods, such as advanced cutscenes and other stuff that will be revealed at a later date.

Awesome stuff guys, love the darkness plus the gun-light. Textures so easy and yet so awesome. I am in love.

It's awesome how I get a severe sense of foreboding not just because of the content of the picture, which screams atmosphere, but because of who made the mod.

I'd love to playtest this mod. Only problems being it ussually takes me around a week to play through a normal horror mod, such as Afraid of Monsters:DC, and thats ussually my sad attempt at speedrunning the mod w/ god mode. At least thats how i did Afraid of Monsters.
But after i played it once, i knew what to expect (in general, not exactally), i knew the kind of aresonal/wep usage i should use, and now i can play Afraid of Monsters and actually take time to look at the detail of the mod.
AoM:DC was very good, this looks even better. if you somehow don't have enough playtesters, and your willing to let someone test the mod for...lets say...around 1 month, i could probably give you a detailed description of my pro's/cons.

Because it isn't, it's a technically improved version of GoldSrc.

Not really. It's still technically the goldsrc engine. The engine itself is not modified, as you still need Half-Life in order to play it.

nah it was the opengl32.dll that punkbuster didnt like and tried saying you were a cheater if you tried playing half life AFTER installing Paranoia, even the guys over at paranoia said just move the opengl32 file somewhere else until you wanted to play it again, I dont know if this is gonna need it or if theyve made their own, Well guys do u or have made ure own???

Alright, I were referring to that additional assets that wasn't originally included in HL are used.
I see how wrong it was phrased. >P

Beautiful work. I have a feeling this is going to scare me even more than AoM:DC, and that's not easy to do. It almost looks like there's a noise filter.

At this part in the map I will probably just stand there for about 3 minutes, then quickly run down the hallway and turn around and hope nothing has followed me.

And does the flashlight have any sort of charge/batteries needed?

Yeah would like to know that too, I got really lost on AOM:DC since the batteries runned out really fast on hard.

This almost looks like a screenshot taken straight from F.E.A.R.
The lighting, flashlight effect, gun animation, and even textures look just like F.E.A.R. 1.

except, imo, it looks WAY cooler than f.e.a.r.1. Less cartoony. I love the gritty feel.

This kind of reminds me of that corridor in the last map of L4D's No Mercy campaign. Only L4D was a big zombie fragfest, but here I doubt a car headlight's going to help keep the shadows at bay.

A map I've been working on recently. It uses the textures I made in the videocast 3. If you can't remember, watch it again!

Also, check out the deployable tactical light we've made. You can combine it with the glock in the inventory, to attach it to your gun.
