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.

Okay does that have anything to do with him making his "own games"? He is an employee that doesnt mean he is making it himself.

Looks really good :O

Interesting how something that looks so good just starts out as a couple of good looking textures

Hmmm... If you look at the water's shader a bit closer, you will start to wish it used a bigger image.

i got a question.

how did you make the light transition on the 3rd panel? (orange sky to partial blue)

ruMpel Sep 10 2011 replied:

That was pretty hard tbh. The sky is actually two textures blending into eachothers, because when I only had 1 texture, it made the quality really bad with the 256 bit map quality. So I had to make the sky all blue with one texture, and the sun effect with a yellow additive texture. The sky is a giant sphere btw.

Aww.. now ingame I'm going to look at the sky and go, ' Oh.. .It's just a sphere.. ' Instead of imerse in the game, :C.
