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.

Don't worry, this mod page is just controlled by the same noobs who created all these dumb campaigns. They don't like the people who say truth. The truth is that their maps suck. And they suck the same way.

No, for the love of god no..
It will never happen

GoldSrc>Source engine.

Let me correct you, GoldSource < Source.

You saying it won't happen is pure ******** and infact, makes it want to happen, first of all, source is the most modded engine out there, it gladly destroys frostbite and is the forefront of most modern mods today, especially BLACK MESA

timstro59 Sep 8 2012, 9:35am replied:

The Frostbite engines are great engines, they are just more specialized than the Source, which was designed to be modular and easily moddable.

By the time Cry of Fear reaches version 2.0, I say a full version update all in one file needs to be uploaded into Moddb. The 596 MB of the cumulative patch is getting too much.

So many buried comments.Jeez.

I mean, not all of them but you get what I mean.And the references about that guy...God Damnit.Don't they have anything to do other than posting **** comments and involving this guy in this new update? I never liked the guy in the first place but oh well, just my damned opinion.

I never tried the mod either in the first place, I've been busy.I've got to try this, I've been misssing too much of it.
