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.

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:

SDK v1.2

To use all the new features as a custom mapper, you will need the latest SDK (1.2). The SDK is not finished yet, and will be finished in few days. James and I (Andreas) have been very busy with this patch, and we did not have time to finish the SDK. We will spend this weekend to finish it off though. Just keep track on this page, and it will appear for you sometime this weekend!


We are also in great need of having servers up and running, to let people experience the awesome co-op modes.

So if you want to help us with putting up servers, head to this link to read more:

We would really, really appriciate your help, and we will consider a cool way to thank the server hosters.

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 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:


We hope that you will enjoy this patch! Please leave a comment on what you think, and why not follow us on Facebook? We almost post news every day on it, and we have a lot more going on in our Facebook. For all of you fans, we recommend it! Simply click on the facebook icon to head to our facebook.

Anyways, see you out there, and hopefully you will cry of fear.

My custom campaign The Hole has been released for a while now, but only download it and play it if you are not very anxious for the final debugged version (with commentary and a third ending) which will come with 1.5.

Hey, don't come down on the guy. I feel the same way. It's about time the original was laid to rest, what with 2 having been out for something like half a decade now.

No reason for it to be. I personally prefer Goldsource to Source.

But the original is the ORIGINAL. It's also impossible (at least, in my opinion) to finally say "Dasvydanya" to a revolutionary game.

But then again, if Black Mesa: Source ever comes out, I might change my mind :P
