Cthulhu is a single-player modification for Half-Life.
It contains 65 maps, 21 new monsters and 14 new weapons.

Aeons ago, Earth was ruled by The Great Old Ones, beings so alien and terrible that merely seeing them would drive most people mad. Before man's ancestors climbed down from the trees, these being were defeated in a war with The Elder Gods.
But their alien nature meant that they could not be slain in any way that we would understand, so they were imprisoned.
And so they wait, patient and potent until the stars are right and they shall walk forth once again and wipe mankind from the face of the Earth.
You play Ranulf Stafford, an occult investigator in Arkham in the year 1928. Drawn into a nightmare chain of events, you find yourself the only thing standing between mankind and the return of Cthulhu, one of the most dreadful of The Great Old Ones.

CTHULHU - AN UNSPEAKABLE REMOD for Half-Life

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen! ZikShadow here again to present to you a simply made HD pack for the classic mod Cthulhu!

I think i played the mod back around 2010-ish, sort of about a year before i decided to make stuff up to make it look better.

The mod overall is okay, i liked the fact that it tried to grab some of the Lovecraft's cosmic horror over despite the many problems that sort-of buggers around the mod.

It is unfortunate that the level design is overall pretty terrible even by HL's nineties standards, the models are mixed up, the coding screwed (had to even remove the shotgun's muzzleflash because of that), and many of the gameplay decisions is just baffling to me.

But hey! I can see a lot of love and imagination put to this mod, even if the lack of skills really stand out during gameplay.

Reminds me of the days i started making levels for Cry of Fear. I guess that's one of the few reasons i start finishing this remod again the other day.

But yeah, almost 5 years since this began, and now the making of has ceased.


I hope you all can enjoy the mod.


Do not summon up that which you cannot put down.

As a fan of H.P. Lovecraft, I figured I'd give this mod a try. By the time I got to the second area with the house, I was quickly infuriated. You, the protagonist, are given NOTHING to defend yourself with and you will suddenly find yourself being chased (and slaughtered) by cultists and zombies. To top it off, there are no forms of health restoration. This mod is a joke and is unplayable, pass it up and play something that wasn't actually designed to just kill the protagonist and enrage the player.

Ohh stop whining, not every FPS is a Serious Sam type of a game, just think a little bit. Was the original HL about slaughtering enemies wave by wave ?? You must be one of those COD players if you like brainless simplicity, and no challenge in games Mister :P

well, isn't there a bit of survival horror? you can obtain some weapons rather quickly and otherwise run away from them if too many are attacking at once

Cane sword, second floor, pick it up. Kill a cultist and you´ll now have a schmitar too. Another few and soon you got a revolver and a shotgun as well.

If you still haven´t found it i´ll just leave this here.

I got through the game on multiple occasions just find. Maybe you need to brush up on your skills dude. You ever though to just run past the cultist? They stop chasing you after a bit.
