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 - Christmas news

Recently, myself and the rest of the Cry of Fear team released a teaser video for our upcoming Half-Life modification, Cry of Fear. The mod is essentially a psychological horror game, set very much in the same vein as Afraid of Monsters. You take control of Simon, a terrified young man trapped in the dark, snowy streets of a quiet European town. Fight your way to sanity through a horde of disfigured horrors hell-bent on your destruction and hopefully find answers and solace in the cold Scandinavian night.

You can either view the trailer here:

 or download the trailer from here!

Turn off all the lights, lock all the doors and enjoy!

Oh, and I almost forgot! We have a surprise for you guys in the form of a 2 minute video of unedited gameplay, due to be released on the 25th of December; though telling you kinda makes the surprise part redundant!

Merry Christmas!

Thanks!

You mean the "SCCRCH" sound? xP

But yeah, I tried to make you feel it physically too, so you get this feeling that something is really wrong.

Holy ****, that was great! I'm opening the video in Virtualdub just to see what's in all the frames :P

You kill them with music that you shoot from a book by tapping your thighs into the microphone and shaking your monitor. And it's Japanese. With robots.

I could have sworn you listed Jacob's Ladder as one of your influences in the AOM readme? o_O Or perhaps that was a review... meh, so long ago now my mind doesn't remember very easily.

It's by the CoF team of course. 2 tracks. 1st by RuMpel, second by a man named Patrick who volunteered to help recently. All the music in the mod is by RuMpel, although I contributed about 4 or 5 tracks too.

I've always thought it would be cool if someone added a hand.

For example: You are holding a pistol with one hand. You look down and see you're second hand. That would be bad ***!

It's just an idea, it would add alot more detail :P
