20 comments by muddasheep on Jun 1st, 2010

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...

I remember when Sunrise was released, I was really excited. I loved Amen SO MUCH, one of my favorite mods ever. So, I started playing Sunrise, and soon got... really bored. Amen was more like an experience game with some hardcore gameplay elements, and it was a perfect combination. Sunrise is all about hardcore gameplay, which can be really frustating in large doses. I especialy hate the beginning of the game, which is really boring and lacks the humor and atmosphere of Amen. I know, Half-Quake series are all about making the player feel like a helpless victim, but Amen did it much better, and without frustation. All in all, Sunrise was a disappointment for me. Even the music is not as impressive as it was in Amen.

I just can't understand what happens at the end. LOL, I jump at somos, press E, everything goes FUBAR and I wake up surrounded by stuff unable to advance while listening to these guys?

Is that the ending?

After final battle you survived but found yourself under the debris from which you can't escape. But those guys think you're dead Just listen to them and wait when you die of hunger :)

I haven't beaten Sunrise yet, but it's much harder than the other ones. But my favorite is Amen because it's so funny and is based from the comics.

@aidandemon Nice! The "new tab" background image is too small though, unfortunately. Can you make that bigger or fit to window?

I'm going to say something I'm totally going to regret really soon. I'm just trying to word it as offensively true as possible.
