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.

To tell the truth, the first version was more of a " i scare you, and if u run from being scared you trigger something else", if u keep your calm through various parts ( or do the wrong things) it either isn't scary, or fails. like the part where u see the woman hung, when u reach the door just walk backwards, don't turn around, and she wont dissapear when u try to open the door.
Also, with the fast zombie that jumps through the wooden barricade, you can break the barricade.....other parts u can just walk backwards and not see the ghost lady..
Its a good mod, very well done, i'm just saying its only good if you actually get scared. Hopefully the 2nd one will have more of a "i'ma scare you and theres nothing you can do about it" feel, but i bet even if he did the same thing he did with the first, it'd be a great mod.

well i let them scare me like going though a great spook house. after this one is released - i like to see in nightmare house 3 that it takes place in a town known for its bloodly history - every night the events repeat themselfs - our hero wakes up in this town and the sun is going down ( maybe a event clock is needed ) the end takes place at the chruch where the reason for the events that happend after .

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.
