The time has arrived. It was not easy, but after nonstop work in the past weeks I’m thrilled to announce that Nightmare House 2 is officially out! You can download it from our new official website or from MODDB.

July update July update

That’s a good opportunity to thank the team who helped me raising this perfectionist’s project. It was a long challenging journey and I doubt I’d finish this alone. It’s been my pleasure working with you guys.

Nightmare House 2 is a free, horror-themed first-person-shooter game, and the direct successor of the first classic horror map pack “Nightmare House”. Nightmare House 2 started booting up in around 2007, two years after the first game came out. Development has been through many phases, resulting in scrapping a few of the first concepts in early development phases. And finally, you can now play it.

I've played the game and experienced both endings and i must say this is the best mod i've played so far, great job! a awsome hint i must give is to go into the console and type map this_is_not_a_easter_egg or something like that, its from weebls-stuff and i love it. You guys did a great job on this game!

Great ending. Level design and voice acting could of used some work, but hey, it's a great mod and I'm not gonna gripe about minor complaints.

I thought the voice acting was fine but the writing needed a lot more work. Overall an extremely competent and enjoyable game.

Gratz to all who worked on this.

Not really into Silent Hill-like psychological horror games/mods, but this one definitely pops out of the lot. Its grim atmosphere coupled with an amazingly compelling story kept me to the edge of my seat until I had done the whole thing. Even at the moments I was telling myself "This is too much, I'm gonna stop now", I found myself begging for more gruesome horror the closer I got to the end. To me, this mod deserves a solid 9/10.

However, the one downside I found was during the [*SPOILERS AHEAD*] final battle against Dr. Romero's machine. It wasn't easy to figure out you had to break the wooden boards that kept the whole thing together. On my end, I think there should have been a little something to hint the player to do it. [*End of spoilers*] This is the only reason I did not give a 10.

I love you guys, great job with the mod. The part that I probably love the most, was the manikins, and the hallways that would shorten. It was just an awesome mod, I am going to replay it later. Love the mod, good luck with your next project!

I loved this mod, the atmosphere is amazing. The parts that are meant to scare you, scare you, and there aren't any really stupid "BOO!" scenarios. The action was fun too, and the boss fight was very fun. I would give this a 9.6/10. Why not a 10/10, well >**SPOILER** As gr13v0u5 stated, the planks you have to break on the boss fight aren't as obvious as they should be. I also had an issue when the crazy solider was going to shoot the other soldier. After figuring out what was happening, I immediately shot the crazy soldier. I restarted the part, and waited till a sign to shoot, so when the crazy soldier said "I'm gonna send you back to hell, I shot him, and I failed again. **SPOILER**< Overall, I barely even noticed those 2 things since this mod is so amazing.

I got stuck right after Romero tells you about the automated intercom voice he can't shut off. There are 2 rooms with cat scanners on them (I think they are cat scans never had one) one of them is lit the other dark. I searched them both and can't seem to find a way out. The door at the end of the hallway is also locked...

In the dark room there is a sparking fuse box, press "e" to open it. The fuse is blown, take a working one from the light room

spe3dyg Aug 23 2010, 7:49pm says:

thanks, i actually tried doing that but I was facing it at the wrong angle and it didn't open, also I think there is a slight hint at the idea that the girl is trying to help you because as I left the dark room she whispered in the direction of the zombie behind me after i took the fuse.

Bug report, transitioning from the prologue to NH2 causes it to crash.

Better than Fear 2, and itss only taken you guys are only "modders" ;)
Guess if Valve sees this, they may try to get a hand on you if they aren't stupid!
Well done and good job anyway, hadn't had any game/mod that really crepped and scared me for a long time, but the last 2 hours were just amazing!
