Release Date

As shown on Facebook and our main website, we have set the release date of the Stand Alone release for April 24th, which is in a week.
Cry of Fear will be re-released for free on Steam, where you won't need Half-Life to play it. It will be completely stand alone.

IndieDB

As you may have noticed, we have now switched over to IndieDB, or rather, the games section.
What this means, is that Cry of Fear is no longer a mod, but a game. This means that other people can create mods for Cry of Fear as in Custom Campaigns. Some examples of that are:
Moddb.com
Moddb.com
Moddb.com
Moddb.com

See you the 24th of April

But until then, follow us on our website Cry-of-fear.com

Lets put it in another angle. Would you like to play a game where there are no textures whatsoever? Because those textures and models are, what delarobe probably meant with hl content. The engine alone isn't worth anything without such content.

How are you guys allowed to make this a stand alone game for the GoldSrc engine without any legal issues? Is it because this is a free to play game?

Now for the most important question of all...

How big is the download size? (no its not a problem for me, just curious to know how big it is compared to the mod installer).

So wait how did you get it stand alone? Did you buy the license for the engine?

CoF was greenlit on steam, which is why they got the engine license for free since the game will be non-profit anyway.

Of course! the save game files are based of the game itself, not the stand alone engine or whatever.

I may sound like a complete idiot here but what is a stand alone release? Is that where we don't need half life?
