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.

i think comments listed under a certain media release (pictures, clips, sounds and so on) should be related to it as well. in most cases this works well (if the file is really there...) but i don't get why people itching to post DIRECTLY with a whole load of BS instead of just WAIT till they'll have something to judge or comment to.

annoying to the creators of the file in the first place and also to the readers, who also just wanna know what you think about that CERTAIN FILE.

i don't wanna read that you are the first one who posted, i don't wanna read that you see what i see: that the file is NOT THERE for the moment and i don't wanna read any non related stuff. thanks.

the clip:
i love the fact that you guys are taking this so serious, visiting a shootingrange to get what it feels like to fire a "weapon" AND to get that ingame, all the coding stuff you've showed and the voiceacting is really awesome (at most parts ;))!

can't wait to see more! i buyed HL1 again on steam in the first place just to play this game, and i think you guys will get some $$$ from me too ;)

till then, keep'em coming! ^^

Cool research on the weapon anims, and the dual wielding system looks damn sweet, will it be possible to store dual wielding in the quick slots?

Sweet job guys.

I love the video and i respect the tons of hard work your putting into the video and the whole mod, but could you please at least lower the music next time. Makes it hard to hear what he is saying and i really am interested in the approach you guys are taking to make the game more polished.

Damn.. great stuff as always. Love the TMP.. I gotta get my skates on and donate lol.

The voice acting part was very very interesting, big thanks to DragoNOR for that one, I never thought about analysing in such detail when carrying out voicework..

Awesome dual wield is awesome! The system works splendidly..and Good news on the bug crushing.

Didn't know you liked Anaal Nathrakh James... "WHEN FIRE RAINS DOWN.. MANKIND WILL REAP AS IT HAS SOWWWWN!!!" =P

It would be interesting if you made it so that the right hand is dominate over the left. So for example, if the player equips the pistol in his right hand and a knife in the left, the pistol will be reasonably accurate and the knife attack will be weak. If the pistol is in the left and the knife in the right, his shooting accuracy will be poor and but the knife attack will be stronger. This would add an interesting strategy element where you need to decide which is priority, good accuracy or strong melee attacks.

Well well well, 4th videocast, and it was awesome as always.

The beginning with the bird mask *bioshock memories lawl* was nice. I wouldnt want to encounter that thing at night. Freaky.

-Amnesia, The dark Descent is now out - awesome game -

Anyway, the little stinger before ruMpels part got me, so kudos to you Sir. next thing, its really awesome tos ee how much detail and attention you give to these things. Like the weapons, checking out the real stuff and then making it into the game. Really awesome, I could feel the BANG of the Glock, and thats cool. Any other weapon cool as well of course. So thats awesome.

The voice acting, awesome too aswell. Since Ive done voice acting myself already, I know what its like. Making notes and stuff really helps to see the key elements, when pacing needs to be different, emotions need to change and etc. Now all I need is a better mic, even though this one is not bad, but not 100 percent "clean". The intro was a nice touch, sounded really grim and depressed, also kind of slightly thorn appart by emotions.

As for Minuit, very nice stuff, the Dual system. Adds realism and comes in handy for sure. Not to much to say about it, it works and looks awesome, having combinations between weapons and light and all, biiiiiiiiig kudos to you all who made it work, also cheers on squishing some more bugs and **** with light and all.

Well, it will only get better. And Im very excited to start a Let's Play once the time comes for us all to die. Keep up your amazing work.

Have a nice day aswell, cheers ~

PS: Forgot the slideshow at the beginning. Awesome ~
PPS: And the music. Really fits your sick twisted minds. But seriously, it's fitting and sounds "radical" haha lol not funny.

Cheers ~

I didn't realize you have shooting ranges in Sweden :O It was a good idea to copy the recoil for the animations. The muzzle on that MP5 was rather wierd looking (though it probably helps reduce climb and increase the power of the propelled bullet somewhat)

The "dual wielding" feature is very cool. It's particularly nice to see such original ideas being thought up and added to the mod :)

...Uhh, I hope that you will have a charecter ingame that resemble you in your costume :)

The knife swing when dualwielding seems abit odd in my oppinion. It feels like it's way too close to the body. (Maybe make it a stabbing motion instead of a swing would help?)
