It's here. It's out. It's available. Spherical Nightmares is released! Start the download from the downloads section. On the official website there are some additional download links.

Here is the trailer:

Also available on: YouTube

It's been around 5 years since I started the project. A long journey. It's been ups and downs during the development. But now after a lot of playtests, iterations and years of development it's finally here. If you like the Half-Life games, then I think this is something for you.

Here are some new screenshots:

Grab a coffee, turn off the lights and put on your headphones. Crowbar time!

I hope you enjoy!

Replace the original gameinfo.txt in the mod folder with this one. This can be used to fix any HL2 EP2 mod, but then you'd better backup the old file...

The first part of the mod, from the beginning to the first fight with the combine, I believe the mapping was good to mediocre, but after that, the maps looked beautiful, and it did give me a sense that something was gonna come at me, and the flashbacks with the citizens were pretty cool

I played this a while back in a play test, and I had to admit its one of the better source mods ive played in a while. It has that old nostalgia feel to singleplayer games, where the story isn't incredibly blunt but more subtle and leaves it up to the player.

Wizard really got his own unique style of level design down, and I feel like this is just a must play, its visually great, and the combat is fun as hell.
