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.

This is the most original and creative mod I have ever played. Nice puzzles and nice challenges. It tests how fast the player's reactions are and how much does he uses his brain.
But there are two problems:
1. There are still some bugs.
2. The player finds out what to do after he dies a few times.
I must admit that I used a list of paper and a pencil to cheat once. I also used the environment to cheat in the little area after the puzzle with the numbers.
I'm sure this mod will stay in the top 10 HL mods forever.
