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.

Lets put it in another angle. Would you like to play a game where there are no textures whatsoever? Because those textures and models are, what delarobe probably meant with hl content. The engine alone isn't worth anything without such content.

How are you guys allowed to make this a stand alone game for the GoldSrc engine without any legal issues? Is it because this is a free to play game?

Now for the most important question of all...

How big is the download size? (no its not a problem for me, just curious to know how big it is compared to the mod installer).

So wait how did you get it stand alone? Did you buy the license for the engine?

CoF was greenlit on steam, which is why they got the engine license for free since the game will be non-profit anyway.

Of course! the save game files are based of the game itself, not the stand alone engine or whatever.
