Sometimes, a mod takes years to develop, and you can't really tell where all the time went.
It's evident in Cry of Fear that countless hours of planning, mapping, modeling, coding, photography, drawing, and sound design went into its creation. With most singleplayer games I've played, the level of detail is especially high in the beginning parts, and peters out quite markedly as the game goes on.
In contrast, CoF manages to reliably introduce the player to visually stunning scenes time after time.
Of course, this is a horror game, so it's not all about looking at pretty things and feeling good. Although jump scares are employed about as much as you'd expect, there are many other ways that Team Psykskallar ups the tension: excellent soundwork and a changing world make the environments feel alive and hostile, with background music by ruMpel and others which often makes you feel that if you stand still too long, the darkness itself might eat you. Together, these elements make for an experience that does not go soft on you, but is rarely frustrating, and is thoroughly satisfying from end to end.
An absolute masterpiece of modding. The work on this is stunning with amazing graphics, storytelling and level design. This is the official example of half-life 2 modding. All future mods should try to live up to the standards of this, but the problem is... If they even tried to then the development teams would commit suicide as they would realise it is truly impossible to create a mod even close to as beautiful as Mystery Combat Man 2: Electric Boogaloo. This mod deserves over 10,000 mod of the year awards. Plus it should go retail at the price of $99.99
My god it would be a first day buy for me.
This game hits all the right buttons for me. It's sci-fi, retro and atmospheric. Already it feels like a game with more substance than Minecraft, and it has plenty of room to expand.
I'm excited to see which direction you will take it, and I couldn't help but be consumed with what you have created.
I'll try to recommend this to as many friends as I can.
I cant combine the 2 pieces together and so far I only had 1 custom story; this one, so no I didnt overwrite anything. Bad experience on this one, hopefuly it gets fixed. This CS had potential though
