Smile is a custom campaign addon for Cry of Fear.
You wake up in an operating room. The first thing you realize - you can walk. Your legs, they are fine, like nothing has ever happened to them. The door leading outside the room is open, you take this to your advantage and get out. There is just one lit area, lighted up by a lantern, and a recording. ‘The’ voice is telling you that you are trapped inside the North Haven Hospital for a little game.
Do exactly as she says, and you’ll be just fine. Don’t, and you’ll be dead within seconds.
While you walk through the corridors of eternal darkness with your trusty revolver, you’re starting to hallucinate - your past is haunting you, tears keep welling up in your eyes and you’re feeling like falling to the ground and crying until you die of exhaustion. While you participate her little game, you keep asking yourself the same question over and over, yet you can’t find any clear answers.
What the hell is actually going on?
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Smile. We love games like Cry of Fear that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Bigger and better
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Introducing Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
