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.

Cry of Fear 1.3 has gone live! This might be our biggest patch yet, containing an awesome new game mode, including new maps and monsters. We could almost call this a DLC. We're also really glad we reached 200,000 downloads! We never thought that would happen so early. I personally expected it to happen at the end of this year, but it went so much quicker! Awesome, plain awesome.

How to install patch 1.3

1. Launch the CoF app program (the shortcut that generates on your desktop when you install Cry of Fear). If you don't have the shortcut, you can manually find the .exe in this directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\yourusername\half-life\CryOfFear\CoFLaunchApp.exe.

2. Once your launch program is up, simply click "CHECK FOR UPDATES", and it will download it and install it for you automatically. Once the install is done, restart Steam.

If you want to download manually, you can do so here:

Cry of Fear v1.0

For you who have not yet tried Cry of Fear, please download it from here down below. We recommend you follow this guide if you are not sure how to install Cry of Fear:

Cry of Fear - Version 1.0

Cry of Fear SDK 1.1

SDK v1.1 contains more info about the logic and scripting + an SDK campaign demonstrating how things works. It also demonstrates how the new game mode logic works. Go to the download section to find the latest SDK version.

Custom campaigns

Cry of Fear Official Soundtrack

As we said on the other news, we have released the Cry of Fear OST. It contains 50 songs of emotional and horrifying music, along with many other secret unused songs that we planned to have in the game. The songs are mastered and mixed to suit best as music rather than in-game music for a game.

You can find the album here:

I use an AMD/Ati graphics card and seem to be fine, so it might be just for particular cards.
