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.

There's a bug when I get the Crossbow. When I get it, the game freezes up, and crashes to the desktop. Is there a way to fix this?!

Alright, so I just had to restart the game to pass the bug. Now, I'm stuck in the "Patience" level. What the hell do I do?

In patience you have to wait in the station about 20 minutes to pass the map

You must be kidding me. You really think that Half Life is a modded Quake 2 engine? You made a mod db profile and you think that Half Life is a modded Quake 2 engine.

No, Half-Life is actually based on a heavily modified Quake 1 engine, not Quake 2.

Oh, and BTW, I wonder what has been updated here.

I'd have thought it was Quake 2, because of the position of the gun whilst playing the game.
