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.

So far, this mod has been extremely enjoyable and equally challenging. However, I seem to be stuck. When I enter the alley at the beginning of "The Mob" chapter, a movie starts to play but the only thing that comes out of the tunnel is a floating wall. It looks like a large black rectangle. I'm guessing that the sprites are messed up and it's supposed to be a car, but after it goes offscreen, the game stays in the movie perspective and you just hear the NPCs talking back and forth. I'm running the game in Steam. Any suggestions?

Hi

Just to remind everyone, the mod comes with a Walkthrough, so if you get stuck, have a look in there!

Also, I am working on a sequel (using Half-Life 2), which is listed here at ModDB.com and is hosted at cthulhu2.loke.be. This one will be a direct sequel, starting where this mod finishes and I am developing it as part of a team (no longer a one-man show). Loke is my main partner in crime and has done an excellent website and is doing the 3D modelling (which was never my strong point).

For a single person to have made an entire mod by himself, he does deserve some credit. The level design is good,though the game crashes at a few places, but by large I give this mod a big thumbs up!!!

An incredible mod from start to finish.

Among my favorite half-life mods of all time. :)
