Darkness... My body hurts! Or is it my brain?

The explosion! I remember it now. Maybe I'm in a coma? Or even worst, I may be already dead...

Everything is so confusing... Zombies, monsters and ghosts from the past are filling my mind... Oh God, so many memories mixed with my dreams! I can't even distinguish them anymore. What if my entire life was just a nightmare? But it felt so real...

Wait, what's that sweet voice? Sounds like a nurse! THAT is part of reality, I am sure. Now if I could just concentrate on this voice and try to wake up...

Hi! Maybe here is someone interested in suspended remake of They Hunger on Source engine (aka They Hunger Lost Souls.) Me and my team are currently working on this remake (I know that many modders where attempted to do this, but no one has succeeded.) So, here is some links to check:


Ask me, if you have some questions.

Those of you having problems with playing this on Steam:

Just run the .exe to your desktop, cut the folder called "hunger" and paste it in your Half-Life directory.

I didn't play this until 2005, when I was 10 or 11. Two years later I joined this site, and I still love Moddb and They Hunger as much as I did ten years ago.

Briliant work.. Models:9 Models were great..For the age of this mod i'm suprised some mods can't even get a litle bit close to them..Altough the skeletons are similiar to vortiguants (They are reskinned vortiguants)the fleesh creeature sounds just makes it scary..I say models are HD enough and that you don't need UD to play but just the good old models.. Gameplay:10 Gameplay is amazing..When you think that you've seen everything in the episodes something new appears..Like in episode 3 Rude awakening…

The voices of the zombies, particularly the skeletons, were just laughable. I wanted to mute the game before I died laughing at their ridiculous voices. The story was all over the place. I could follow it as much as…
