Ghosts, Zombies, Vampires and other monster boggiewoggies. Halloween is a great time to get into the scarier movies and games to give yourself a good fright. Last year on ModDB I created a video for the top ten voted spooky mods by our community, it had some interesting results to say the least with the popular but not always scary mods took the cherry. This year we will do something a little different, I have compiled a list of singleplayer mods (because we all know being alone in the dark really sets the mood) for different engines that you should check out if you want to get your spook on.

Mistake -1 (Half-Life)

Mistake -1 is the prequel to 'Mistake' and tells the story of Steve Rick, a patient from the Andrew Parker asylum, who harbors a dark secret. A very spooky mod that uses the Goldsource engine very well. Creepy lighting and visual map changes creates something very unique and exciting.

Hollow Moon (Unreal Tournament 2004)

You arrive to the moon research station to work as heavy machinery engineer. From now on you are on your own. Created as more of an experiment for different means of showing audio-visual styles Hollow Moon boasts no environmental sounds, but what is produced is a thick atmosphere that few games or mods can come close too.

Paranoia (Half-Life)

You will play the role of a Russian officer of the secret service. Your first impressions are that this mission will be just like any other, but you really have no idea what nightmares future events have in store for you. Paranoia is one of the very best mods to come out of Half-Life for both engine expansion and content. A must download!

Curse Episodes (Half-Life 2)

Curse episodes is an Egyptian themed action/horror/puzzle/exploration FPS where the further you creep into the world of Curse the harder and more frightening the entire experience gets, its up to you how you want to play. A very unique and very amazing mod worthy of your attention and bandwidth!

Dear Esther (Half-Life 2)

A deserted island... a lost man... memories of a fatal crash... a book written by a dying explorer. Dear Esther is a ghost story told using first-person gaming technologies. If you want a very spooky interactive ghost story Dear Esther should be the mod for you, highly recommended by all the staff here on ModDB.

There are hundreds more mods and games out there that will help create a fantastic Halloween experience for you all, these are just some of the truly stand out mods that deserve to be the major source of your ghostly ahhs and eeiies. Hope you have a very frighting Halloween!

I hope this mod is not dead...
Since those 60's radios spread over the whole complex (not to mention the whole bunch of radios near the the wooden (?!) demo-ending door and this very door itself) keep haunting me...

Great mod with a rather mindblowing atmosphere...
I never would have guessed, a BW game without any sounds, just with a creepy soundtrack would have such a dense atmosphere.
ok, i would add a looping breathing sound, but thats a matter of taste...

I somehow think that these radios and the wooden door at the end imply that this is just some kind of dream or fantasy of someone, dunno...

I finished the beta version of this mod and found the gameplay to be very suspensful with the careful anticipation of something mysterious to happen, like the pop out of an Alien or zombie.However to my disapointment that 'something' never happened. Infact at some points of the game I got extreamly bored and started playing some addredaline pumpper games. When I finished the mod I said to myself where the F where the monsters? I did not get to kill one single thing!!..I know this is a beta, but , could of at least put something in the game so I could kill some frags? overall the Mods visual effects are stuning and I love the karma effects and the HUD. But very boring gameplay. I also think this mod is dead and some folks said there will be no final version.

he there, this mod is awesome, the thing is that for some reason it crashes. i was able to play it the firs time but the second time i opened it it crashed, i reinstaled the patch and it worked again but since than it continues to crash at the begining. the same routine we all know: UT2004 Build UT2004_Build_[2004-03-03_02.42]

OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600)
CPU: GenuineIntel Unknown processor @ 1701 MHz with 511MB RAM
Video: NVIDIA GeForce 6200 (8195)

Error setting display mode: CreateDevice failed (D3DERR_OUTOFVIDEOMEMORY). Please delete your UT2004.ini file if this error prevents you from starting the game.

History: UD3DRenderDevice::UnSetRes <- CreateDevice <- UD3DRenderDevice::SetRes <- UWindowsViewport::TryRenderDevice <- UWindowsViewport::OpenWindow <- UGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine

Sorry for not reporting sooner. Hope you managed to play it after all, if not: We do not seem to get reports on this bug but one person had crashes but it was caused by UT2004 itself. Check if you have the latest ut2004 patch and Nvidia drivers. Might be something is not installed properly. Reinstalling UT might help as last solution, installing it on C:/ drive and not having previous Hollow Moon versions installed...

Hope it helps.

So, are there enemies in Beta 3 at all? I played all the way through and never saw a single one. I must have screwed something up.

I like the idea, but shouldn't there at least be the sound of the main character breathing included? Obviously, sound can't exist in space, because it's a giant vacuum, but wouldn't it be a different story inside the space suit?

I think it would be a little bit annoying to constantly have breathing sounds in my ear... Maybe have the breathing when the stamina bar gets low, or after taking a hit... but I don't really think it's necessary.

Maybe the character is listening to scary music and can't hear himself breathe. :)

It could be, but I think a good example of how this can be done without becoming annoying is Dead Space. They have zero-g segments that simulate the same environments and the only noises that you can hear are from inside the suit.

The movies 2001 a Space Odyssey and the sequel 2010 used a constant hiss from the gas mix being pumped into the suit. You would only hear breathing during heavy EVA.
