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!

This will always, at least to me, be far better than Underhell (Although Underhell is still good). I hope, even though they say otherwise, there will be a Nightmare House 3 someday. It's actually horror. Underhell felt more like a tactical shooter.

Basically, Nightmare House 2 is one of the best Source mods, alongside Black Mesa and Zombie Master 2. Underhell should never be a replacement to this classic mod that should never, never, NEVER be forgotten.

havn't played entire game nor half of it yet. but i cant stop myself from saying that this is worth your 0 dollar investment.

ive played amnesia and a lot of its mods; despite that this game was able to make my heart jump @ certain places.

Well, I'm stuck. Not sure how far I'm into the game (maybe 3/4s, I guess). I just went through a really dark two part warehouse full of racks with boxes and had an extended fight with the Venus Flytrap-headed monsters. Three soldiers were with me, one must have died in the fighting and disappeared. At the end of the second warehouse, you go up a flight of stairs to a room with a doorway. The door will not open and there isn't any other ways out of the room. I clipped through the door to see that there is a garage ahead that my character and the soldiers are supposed to end up, but I can't if the door won't unlock. What can I do?

Just finished playing this and found it intense. Definitely the first mod to ever make me jump multiple times, mostly during the moments when the girl appears. Really, really well done atmosphere, music and gameplay. I wasn't expecting that sort of ending though.

Wait a minute. That review was for the first game, where you are in the house. I downloaded this mod from GameFront and it was first NH, not the second. It's even titled "NH2" in the rar, which is confusing since it isn't that mod. I haven't played the hospital one yet. Where can I get a copy since the DL link is incorrect.

Alright, my bad. I did not even take notice that the "Prologue" was the first game and the second is after it in the "New Game" menu. Jeez. Never mind about my question then. LOL

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.
