Halfquake Amen is part 2 of our Halfquake series.
(The first part of Halfquake appeared in 2002 June's issue of PC Gamer)

We have been working on HQA for more than one year and it has been released on September 1st 2002.

Here are a few features:

- Complete new textures and sounds
- Absolutely confusing design
- Soundtrack with more than 30 minutes of playtime
- Twelve parts of pure sadism
- About six colors (black, gray, green, white, yellow (alienblood), red (mostly your blood))
- And of course: No HEV Suit

We've got some screenshots too:

Finally, after roughly three years of development, the third part of the Halfquake series is available for download (Mirror #2, Mirror #3)! Here is a list of frequently asked questions.

What is it about?

As in the previous two parts, you once again play the role of a victim, thrown into a strange and deadly environment to suffer and die - for the entertainment of whoever is watching!

What is required to play?

Halfquake Sunrise is a Half-Life 1 modification and works with both the old WON Half-Life and the Steam version of it. Thus, you don't need a high-end PC.

How long is it?

It takes about four to five hours from beginning to end, depending on your skill.

Is it free?

Yes, both the modification and the soundtrack (Soundtrack Mirror #2, Soundtrack Mirror #3) are available for no cost at all.

Is it single-player only?


Is there a walkthrough available?

No, but you can help unlock traps for hints or join the forums if you require aid in your progress.

Can I watch the trailer again?

If you have any further questions, be sure to send me a message, or write a comment to this news post.

Try to find the "Exit" cabinet. I think its close to the giant square. If you mean "field" you mean the destroyed "Ambience" right?

So mate, you gotta find the right portals to get through, inbound to the end of the map, or if you are to make the quests , do them to properly move to "Patience".

EDIT: Sorry, sunrise, there is a broken part in the floor, afaIk, or a crack in the wall.

That happens if you have an auto save in the original HL. Make sure you manually save and load your games.

Kentaro's Mod Review #1
Its awesome its a little bit weird but still awesome, it has a little humor into it like the part when he starts singing "Ha ha ha ha staying alive staying alive! and now *BOOM*" its a puzzle/action/obsticlecourse kind of game, the part where you have to wait for the train is a bad idea, because you have to wait for it for like 10 minutes 8/10. And there is gonna be part 2 of it? Yes? GOOD! No? Oh well...
And i beated this mod cause its not very long.
