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.

Lovely work. It's been annoying throughout all the HL1 mods (though admittedly life-saving...) when monsters/ enemies lose you on stairs or corners.

Yeah...people used to just exploit the stupid enemy AI to defeat them. Now it's going to get really challenging.

Also, this is ******* awesome.

You know I kind of depended on the AI being bad to escape the chainsaw guys easily. This is gonna be great.

I was somewhat expecting the chainsaw guy at the end to hop over the railing.

Remember: if you go to the room where the chainsaw guy starts out, you get a free M16!

Except there's barely any ammo anywhere, so you have to make do with what little you are given. And it doesn't help that the chainsaw guy is invincible.

That chainsaw chase scene is awesome but him disappearing annoys me. Would it be possible for an animation of him to swing for you and hit his chainsaw on the railing? But other than that the AI looks so much better!

Great now I have to use my bullets, although it's great that you improved the AI, this will really add more to the immersion of the game.
I remember that when playing AOM I would lure the twitchers to an elevated area (trash can, bench, etc.) , and I would jump on top of their heads and just start hacking away at them, it was hilariousness but completely ruined the tension of the game.
