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?

Yes!

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?

Have a nice death!

This was my least favorite of all the halfquakes, but that's like saying Half-Life 2: Episode 2 was my least favorite Half-Life game. It's still amazing, but it was just a huge pain in the ***.

This mod takes sadism to a whole new level. There were a few things I had trouble beating (the chess puzzle took me HOURS upon HOURS) and the difficulty of the puzzles definitely got ramped up. A lot. It might just be because I was expecting the mod to fill some big shoes. halfquake and halfquake amen are almost nostalgic for me. I've beaten them both too many times to count, now with round 3 coming around, I'm expecting the same experience, instead I'm getting a whole new set of puzzles with a whole new set of frustrations to play through and it wound up leaving a sour taste in my mouth.

But I digress. From a halfquake player, I enjoyed the mod, but my first playthrough was a bit of a let down. Three is starting to get me warmed up to the game, a lot. To anyone looking for an interesting mod to play, you've found it.

This mod isn't a game, it's an experience, a wonderful one.

SPOILER ALERT!!

This mod was fantastic, it really makes you think, however I never solved the chessboard part so I had to cheat there :P

It was really neat, it takes mapping for goldsource to a diferent level, I only wished there was a true ending after you defeat the final boss, like you find a way out of that dimension instead of being trapped in the rubble

Nevermind, I figured it out. I'm near the end now, in the boss battle. That's its own problem. This game certainly is sadistic, that's for sure.
