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.

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...

Well,it's not that I'm against puzzles,but i'm stuck at the starting itself, after pressing on the button "OK" of the "you're such an optimist" room. I could'nt finish the training mission either,I kept dying.Let me finish the game and then i'll give an opinion

Original concept... okay, I would give it that... except making a game really, really hard is nothing new... nor is it particularly clever to put jumping puzzles in a FPS. I could get into that little doorway in Part 2 once, but I could see you would have to do it many times...

Normally, I find difficult games really addictive, but this is "******** difficult". Not for me.

Masochists, on the other hand, love it... see above. Try it and see.

Also go to their official website for the COMIX and you'll get a partial understanding of the story(A little bit of it though...)!!

Oh..really? You're a goddamn genius!
If you wanna play something which is like Half-Life or Quake,then play Hal-Life or Quake!
I really love this mod,I think i've played it for about 50 times.
Indeed,muddasheep is the creativest guy I know.
He's a programmer,a mapper,a musician,a author,a web-designer,a sound-designer and graphic artist.

You are a victim stuck in the Half-quake institute and you have to get out.

there is alot of background story, but you will have to read about it your self.

NOTE: this mod is supposed to be sadistic.
