Seriously, theres barely any good Horror-Mods, and there should be.  this, in short, is a group for all the gamers who feel left out of the mod-playing communities just because its hard to make or find something scary.  

Yes, I'm bringing the group back to life (or trying to).  Heres a list of the more noteworthy mods:

Afraid of Monsters(Half Life 1)
Afraid of Monsters: Directors Cut ( Half Life 1)
Mistake ( Half Life 1)
Pre-Mistake (Half Life 1)
They hunger ( Half Life 1)
PARANOIA (Half Life 1)
SMOD:Outbreak (Half Life 2)
Nightmare House ( Half Life 2)
Nightmare House:Remake ( Half Life 2)
Get a Life ( Half Life 2)

One of the reasons why the game is taking so long has been the AI. To anyone who hasn't dealt with it, it is a nightmare. There is a reason why many commercial...

It's been a while since the last news post, it's been pretty silent. So we decided to show off some of the current progress at the moment! Notice that...

Explanation of why we now have three domains. We've 'moved' to IndieDB as to correct our domain situation.

Cool to see a group dedicated to enjoying what I also love. I'm making a horror mod for Crysis, hopefully it interests you guys. :) Check out the moddb page for it some time.

Anyway, I didn't enjoy Nightmare House 2. Too much like FEAR for my tastes. I prefer real "horror". Story, atmosphere, immersion > Guns, monsters, explosions

ehh, to me theres a difference between horror and adrenaline pumping scares.
Horror to me is more of a Nightmare house 2 game, you've got enough supplies, but you gotta make em last, you can expect certin things to happen but its gonna make you jump either way, and aside from that i like a tad of realism. Nightmare House 2 was sorta lifelike in a way, it was pretty scary and tbh i think they should get into making actual horror games.

I disagree. Horror to me is more about lovecraft than action with monsters. Dead Space, Nightmare House, FEAR, etc. They aren't even horror games to me. If you have the option to fight back at all besides for conventional means, it's not horror. Slow motion gun fighting, for example, shatters that mold.

A horror game should have a horror oriented plot, atmosphere, pacing and character arc that makes you interested and immersed in what's going on. Game's like Call of cthulhu, penumbra, cryostasis and hell, even stalker for it's atmosphere and monsters and night time immersion.

I agree, deadspace was only scare the first time something jumped out at me, but after the first few minutes i knew pretty much every trick the monsters had. and it just became more of a "Resident evil 4" style game.
And i agree, slow-motion and special effects ruin it, i love seeing games where its an average person uing average things to fight back. I'd give examples, but the only one i can think of is SIlent Hill, but technally since in the first one you can beat a boss with the pipe, in the 2nd you have a giant sword, and in the third your a "god" thing, its not exactally "scary".
Also i just have to stick up for Nightmare House 2- and say this: Yes, i agree that its a bit..unordinary, but at the same time its still a good game. Technally; the first Nightmare House, since it was fairly slow paced, might have made the character used to the horror, so in the 2nd one he was able to expect it more. also the voice of the doctor, basically your only hope, might have fueled him to fight through the nightmare.
I do agree though, that a hospital that randomly had axes, security rooms with a single [break glass in case of emergency] pistol, and evil doctors building huge basements with contraptions to confuse and kill people, does seem....lame, but to me the game still pulled off being scary.

Ye, and Nightmare House 2 was really better than I thought it would be (And I thought it's mega-awesome before playing it!!)
So, great mod, the Horror-genre is one of the greatest ones anyway!

yeah, but sadly its getting harder and harder to pull off "horror"
you gotta make sure your not just getting cheep scares, make sure your not passing off hordes of laughably weak zombies as "scary", or saying something depressing (omaigawd every1 dies a horrible death? D:) is scary.
Nightmare House 2 managed to include a bit of those, but they used it in just the right way for it to really be scary. Which is funny, because most modern-actual games that are "horror", like Resident Evil:Remake, are mostly cheep scares.
