About This Game

Cry of Fear is a psychological single-player and co-op horror game set in a deserted town filled with horrific creatures and nightmarish delusions. You play as a young man desperately searching for answers in the cold Scandinavian night, finding his way through the city as he slowly descends into madness. With a strong emphasis on cinematic experience, immersion and lateral thinking, players will be taken on a nightmare rollercoaster-ride through the grim streets of Fäversholm and beyond. Not everything is as it seems...

Cry of Fear originally started out as a Half-Life 1 modification, set in the same vein as the classic survival horror games of old. 4 years in the making and picking up several modding awards on the way, it is now a free, standalone game for anyone to enjoy. Beware though, it's not for the faint of heart.

Key Features:

  • Huge single-player campaign with over 8 hours of gameplay
  • Multiple endings and over 20 different unlockables to keep you playing
  • Full length co-op campaign with up to 4 players
  • Strong modding support with 12 custom campaigns and examples included, with requests from modding community listened to and implemented
  • Terrifying and unforgettable atmosphere
  • 24 different and unique weapons to choose from
  • Unlockable extra campaign after beating single-player
  • Original soundtrack comprises over 5 hours of haunting, melodic music

Cry of Fear is a well executed Half Life 1 mod, focusing on first person survival horror. You play in the shoes of the flawed protagonist named Simon after a life changing accident, following the main characters struggles with Anxiety and Depression.

The game itself is very well executed for a free to play game, although graphically it looks outdated, this does not draw away from the overall ambience and horrific designs of many of the monster filled throughout the game. All mechanics feel swift and responsive, including the combat mechanics.

Also, many different game modes are available to play, including doctor mode and nightmare mode! There is also a coop feature, which lets you immerse in the fear together as a different set of characters.

In conclusion, Cry of Fear was a very entertaining and immersive gaming experience with a ton of replayability. If you are a fan of the Silent Hill series, I would extremely encourage you to try this game out if you have not already! As a free to play game, you have nothing to lose and I assure you it will be worth the time to download!

Edgy teenager simulator. Honestly, this game is like a bad creepypasta. Just like Resident Evil. I like Resident Evil.

This is a good horror game, Half Life mod that is challenging and nerve racking, if you like Horror games this one isnt bad.

Pros:
+Amazing atmospheres and horror
+Challenging with nice puzzles
+Scary
+Posterchild for DARE

Cons:
-Scary
-Not very good grapics or optimization
-Buggy (but not game breaking)
-Not user friendly multiplayer
-Drugs are good? lol

I played this game around the same time I fell into a deep depression a few years back and the whole time I played it I kept thinking "Whoever made this must have been really messed up before" If you enjoy the old resident evil and silent hill games you'll love this one, it's the kind of game you'll probably need a walkthrough for but it's full of some good jumpscares and the atmosphere will make you want to turn the lights on. It's combat is decent and it's story will make you feel bad for the main character a lot. If you haven't played it yet I highly recommend giving it at least an hour or two before deciding to continue or just deleting it.
