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!

19 comments by Hen7 on Nov 14th, 2014

Hey guys, it's been a while.

As some of you may know, Nightmare House 2 has been broken for quite some time now.
But we come bearing good news!

Over the last few weeks the entire original NH2 team (with a few new members as well) has been working on fixing the game, porting it to the 2013 version of the source engine, as well as adding lots of other stuff and fixes.

So whats in the new version?

  • It actually works! - As the NH2 2007 version was broken until now.
  • Runs on Source Engine 2013 - which has many engine improvements.
  • A few new bits in the game - you might find a new thing or two.
  • A few new models, sounds, and textures - we're trying to get rid of third party content.
  • Better visuals - lighting improvements, new shaders, and more.
  • Lots of bug fixing - over the years we collected many bugs, now we fixed them all.
  • More small additions and changes to the maps - to make things better, and more clear.
  • Many more.

What MIGHT be in the new version?

  • Mac version
  • Oculus Rift support
  • More new models and textures (hopefully replacing HL2 assets as well).
  • New weapons (see more below)

(We're currently looking at these features, we can't promise we'll manage to do them all, but we'll try).

So yeah, there you have it.
We can't have any actual release date yet but you can expect it to be coming soon.
We're also looking at Steam Greenlight, but we'll dig into it once the game is fully fixed first.

Wanted - Weapon modeler

We're currently looking for a talented weapon modeler to help us replace the third party models we had in the original NH2, note that being able to animate the weapons is also a huge plus.
If you think you can help, PM us!

Stay tuned.
The NH2 team.

Anybody knows how to disable the HUD in-game? It would be really awesome (and more immersive) to play this game without the HUD.

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.
