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.

A brief update, a mini-videocast, news. What more could you want?

Posted by Minuit on Jul 8th, 2011

Hello everyone, me again with some interesting news. Today I'm going to talk to you about progress, a mini-videocast and a gameplay video. So, first things first:

Mini videocast

Andreas has made a videocast detailing his latest (well, semi-latest, the video is a couple of weeks old) progress, thoughts and other such things. You can tell it's old because he's still a postman in it (he now works at DICE)

You can watch it here:

None of the other members are in the video: We can't be bothered.


Progress is going good, the bugs list showcased in the video is completely outdated and a lot smaller. The mod will be released soon-ish. We still have yet to make all the secrets and unlockables though, and believe me, there will be a lot of them.

Gameplay video

We have an interesting proposition for you. Essentially, we've decided to release a 3-5 minute gameplay video if we reach either 3000 watchers or 1000 "like"s on Facebook, so spread the word! You can find our Facebook here:

Or you can "watch" us by clicking this:

That's it for now! See you soon!

DICE is a subsidiary of EA. It's practically EA's Sweden branch.

After so much rage in Andreas news, someone in team got finally time to tell something about the progress. It's none of my business, but that doesn't seems right.

This video was pretty epic. I spy a Condemned icon on your desktop, but I shouldn't have expected less. That game is beyond tits.

The train sequence looks pretty awesome as well.

I was already amazed by the train environment, but I came when I saw the ladder climbing animations. This will be the most AMAZING horror game to ever exist. Seriously, great job guys.
