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!

Well the plot seems creepy enough to me :)

There will be a new media release when the new website opens (very soon)

When NH2 is released there will also be a remake of the remake to make it look better and utilize the new technology.

i think if he somehow got togeather with the maker of Afraid Of Monsters, it'd be a horror mod like no other.
( Afraid Of Monsters is one of, if not the best, scary mods for Half Life 1, witha near perfect storyline and cutscenes its at least in the top 2)
Nightmare house is also onw of the only hl2 horror mods...soooo yeah, get 2 great horror-mod thinkers togeather and u get 1 win horror mod baby =D

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.
