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!

My words are a bit different...
"Half-Quake: Amen is the greatest mod I've ever played."
Sure, there was so many good mods, but this one just stood out of the crowd. Its atmosphere was absolutely incredible. And one of the things that are making it so awesome is the music. I love it!

Don't let this mod DIE.. (pun intended?) Anyways, can't wait for you to release it, don't know about the first HalfQuake, but Amen was definitely one of the best mods around for Half Life, and I'm sure this will be to.

I played Amen about a year ago and I SUCKED. I downloaded both again today and beat em. Just needed mo' skills ;) My only request for this third mod is that there be some way to live at the end, just a crazy hard, impossible, but possible, way to live. There HAS to be. You guys can't be so sadistic to make me die thrice, can you?


Can you?

Please don't ;_;
