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.

That was awesome, yesterday I played through the original nightmare house mod and wasn't really phazed by any of it, this however genuinely creeped me out.

Well done, keep it up, can't wait for a sequel.

I played and finished it twice, and it´s very fun to play, buuuut...
it wasn´t scary (at least to me), it needs a darker and more opressive atmosphere, like in Mentality-1 or Afraid Of Monsters.
Keep the good work!

This is a great mod with the girl just showing up every were gives chills down your spin, when i was playing i got to SCARED and quit but i like this mod and it gets a 8.6/10 i didn't like how it's has the default icons and hated the zombies please update them and make them like l4d or resident evil zombies. if you update the zombies and icons then it will have a 9.7/10

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.
