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!

I can't wait for part four. This mod just gets better each time, I swear. Especially the new sophisticated gentleman Somos! And the part where you can choose if your friends die or not. The death one is hilarious. "We hope you're feeling happy." While they all die, and I couldn't help but laugh. And if you choose for them to live, you hear them eating cookies, and their heart beat monitor, all while you're avoiding certain death. Bastards.

you know, when the place starts to be destroyed, they talk about being attacked by troops or something, you could make a 4th episode with the same victim from sunrise, but this time, finding a way out in the middle of the chaos

"... and a new ambient/industrial soundtrack with over an hour of playtime."

That hour was mentioned in regards to the soundtrack, not the game itself.

In the end, what the **** is Somos. Translated it means "he is". A machine? An alien?

A machine. And the name Somos is an acronym (which stands for nothing funny in particular) and not related to any unintentional meanings in other languages (such as "we are" in Spanish).
