Nightmare House 2 is a horror themed modification for Half Life 2 (Episode 2).

The mod started as a small map pack for Half-Life 2 in 2005. Nightmare House 2 is to continue the bizarre story of the stranger who had the misfortune to crash his car outside an old house with a horrific past.

In Nightmare House 2 you wake up inside an abandoned hospital with no understanding of how you came to be there, only a vague memory of the girl from Nightmare House haunts you. Soon it will be difficult to determine between a dream and reality. How long will it take you to realize that escape is not an option?

Nightmare House 2 is now out!

Hey guys!

Been a while since we posted news here, although not Nightmare House 2 related, we would like to let you know that Underhell Chapter 1 just came out!

As you know or might not know, Underhell Chapter 1 just came out, and myself and many of the NH2 team members have helped Mxthe develop and bring it to this world, and now it's finally out!

You can go and grab Underhell Chapter 1 here:

Underhell in a way is very similar to Nightmare House 2, even better, so you won't be disappointed.
You can visit the Underhell Moddb profile page for all the info you need.

Another fun fact - Nightmare House 2 and Underhell are set in the same "universe" so you can expect to hear about and meet a few characters and places you know and love.

This news post is aimed for our 2,236 watchers, don't miss it!

made it work with the solution below by Hell_Diguner. played this mod for the first time then i realized i actually watched pewdipie play it a few years back but even so i didn't remember much so it was still amazing, really quality work, i wish more mods would be like this.

Reinstalled NH2 to "celebrate" upcoming Halloween. I can confirm that, at least on Windows XP, "Fix 3" from here: still works. I had to use GCFscape as explained in the tutorial, though, as the command prompt method kept failing.

Anyway, I had only two crashes at the end of the mod. One was an "out of RAM" crash, and the other was probably triggered because I was alt+tabbing back and forth a bunch.

Can't escape the Kitchen because the zombie has no head. And it crashes immediately after getting the handgun.

What the hell man?

Awesome nightmare feeling! Better than FEAR or other horror shooter. One of the best, or the best mod in 2010.

Too much like F.E.A.R. and I wasn't too amazed by the last boss.
