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))

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.

Have a nice death!

You: "Another boring modification for half-life?" We: "Well, we and our testers don't agree on that one... It's neither boring nor interesting, it's FRUSTRATING...

A psychotic experience but also an intriguing artistic comment on the "die and respawn and die again and respawn again and..." - masochism of gamers... Hate it but can`t stop playing it... :/ 10/10

Point in case, yesh.
Wonderfull enviroments, ****** up puzzels, a terrible attitude towards the player....but you know that from the start, that's what makes it so darn funny and good.

I've played this before a long time ago, and I just re-installed it. I'm right in the beginning, when you step on the letters and spell sadism. Unfortunately, when that part is over and it takes you to the next part (I think it's a lift or something, on the smiley face), I become glued to the floor and can't move to the door. It's like the lift glitch that was in a very old version of Half-Life, and it's driving me insane! Any workaround?

I got it working but now I have another problem. I'm at the end of silence, and the drop at the end always kills me. Maybe I got zapped or fell too many times earlier? Anyway, I didn't really have a previous save so... no idea how to continue.
