Nightmare House 2 is a horror themed modification for the Source Engine.
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!

Hello again and happy Halloween!
Today, just in time for Halloween, we’re proud to release an updated version of Nightmare House 2!
More than 5 years ago we released Nightmare House 2, which proved to be an immediate success. The mod was and still is very popular, however it was later broken by a Steam update. We tried to wait it out, but it soon became clear that NH2 would need to be updated as well.
Almost a year has passed since we resumed work. On the way some new members joined the team, and it became much more than just a quick fix, it became a full update, with us fixing many bugs and adding several new features.
And you can download it right now!
NH2 was originally created on Source 2007, the new version has lots of fixes, faster loading times, and other small tweaks. Most importantly compatible with the Steam update.
That's right, you no longer need to own Half Life 2, Half Life 2 Episode 2, or any other Source engine game. NH2 requires only a registered Steam account.
Note: If you do not have any Source engine games installed, Steam will automatically download the base assets (several gigabytes in size) when NH2 will be launched for the first time.
The release you’re about to download will run on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux. One download, three operating systems!
NH2 originally had simple Half Life 2 weapon replacement models we found on third party websites. In the new version the weapons have been modeled, animated, and programmed by ourselves, and now look and behave differently than the original NH2 weapons.
We managed to get rid of all the third party assets we used in the original version. All models, sounds, and textures found in the mod were created by Valve or us, with the exception of some world textures from textures.com
We’ve added new things to all of the NH2 maps, tons of bug fixing, re-balance, and even some new things here and there we’ll leave you to find.
It’s also worth mentioning all maps got a full re-texture overall, you shouldn’t find any Half Life 2 textures now. (Special thanks to textures.com).
Using Source Engine 2013 allowed us to now have better lighting, screen effects, and sharper dynamic shadows.
This modification requires a registered Steam client.
Note that you are not required to own any Source engine based game (Half-Life 2, etc) in order for NH2 to run.
However, steam will automatically download the base assets when trying to launch NH2 without any Source based game installed, so get ready to download a few extra gigabytes.
If you do not know where your main steam folder is it can usually be found in C:\Program Files on Windows, and in your home directory on Mac OSX and Linux.
YOU MAY CRASH AFTER THE INTRO, to fix this do the following:
Many people asked us to set a Greenlight page for NH2, we want to, but first we have to see if it’s still relevant, NH2 was released in 2010, and was a huge hit back then. However Greenlight didn’t yet exist, so we may have missed the boat.
However, if we see NH2 is still being played by lots of people, and is worth it, we will look into setting up a Steam Greenlight for NH2.
Spread the word! Most of the people who will see this news article are people who have already played NH2 before. However there are many people out there hungry for horror games who simply don’t know about NH2. Tell people! Make let’s plays (We enjoy watching them)! Now that NH2 doesn't require any Source based games it is more accessible than ever, let people know!
Above are a few screenshots from the new updated version.
