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

This game scared me to the point where I couldn't finish it and had to just watch the rest on youtube. The time I did spend on it, I really enjoyed. The creatures are terrifying and there are SO many jump scares. It's free to play, but I honestly would have paid money for this.

Every game is a unique experience, but only a few speaks to your true self, like if you were watching the worst and the best part of you at the same time in a mirror, fighting with no mercy. I won't write here all the personal reasons why I'll keep being obsessed with Simon and his story, but I only can say Cry of Fear connects you to the intensity of feelings and the visions words are unable to express.

Cry of Fear is a very old game that combines elements from idle games and dating sim. Even in its beta status, the title stands for itself with unique features like time blocks tgat add a strategy and management spice to it.

From dating sims, the most obvious element inherited is the girls. Everyone you meet is due to an unfortunate event, from making the gamer girl have a breakdown after beating her high score to crashing the tomboy’s bike beyond repair. On the plus side, once you hit rock bottom, you can only go up, and that’s where gameplay takes place. Once each girl is unlocked you will have to meet certain requisites to walk up a step in the relationship, for the nuisance that screwed their day to their special someone. The idle elements of the game include the jobs and hobbies tabs. With jobs, you’ll earn money required to buy gifts and go on dates, which work both as requirements and quick ways to increase the affection meters. The job bars will fill automatically on their own, giving you the job’s paycheck at a fixed rate. Once you “go to work” enough times, you’ll get promoted, getting paid more for the same job. Each one of these jobs requires a different amount of time blocks, but you can deselect a job when it stops being profitable or for any other reason.

The other idle feature is the hobbies that are tied to an individual skill each. These will be unlocked after reaching certain steps in specific girls’ relationship and have several purposes. The most immediate one is the minimum of one hobby demanded to reach the next level with a lass. Another use is unlocking new jobs, each one having two hobbies you must level up to a certain point. Last but not least, each girl has a favored trait, and the more you increase that hobby, the faster her affection will rise on its own. This will save you a lot of clicking and gift giving.

The unique element of Cry of Fear is time blocks, as previously mentioned. These works as a sort of currency that are temporarily used up with hobbies and jobs. While the former use up three regardless of the one you choose, each job uses up a different amount of blocks, from as few as three to up twenty or more. Dates also require having between three and six unused blocks, depending on where you take the girl. Do not fret, though, because there are many ways to get additional time blocks as you play, and you’ll need every single one of them. You can also spare every enemy in the game, just like Undertale. Cry of Fear is exactly like Undertale but with a guns THAT SHOOT. 10/10 would critizize again.

Great game! After the first 10 minutes of starting it up I found it very enjoyable. This game has a great horror: action ratio, there are some good jumpscares and also areas where I was able to get into intense firefights with the monsters of the world. The disadvantages to this game are very minimal however there was a moment where I got stuck and had to go back to my last save, there were also moments where the monsters seemed over powered and difficult to complete, however that was towards the end of the game so it gives the player some time to develop their skills with easier monsters. Overall it was a very enjoyable game and I would recomend it to anyone who wants a good story and great action. I would it 9/10.

Single Player:You are scared and alone, knowing that there can be a monster or jumpscare at any moment ready to pop out and eat you alive.



Co-Op:Sing this with me.


Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police! That's the sound of the beast!

Stand clear! Don man a-talk
You can't stand where I stand, you can't walk where I walk
Watch out! We run New York
Police man come, we bust him out the park
I know this for a fact, you don't like how I act
You claim I'm sellin' crack
But you be doin' that
I'd rather say "see ya"
Cause I would never be ya
Be a officer? You wicked overseer!
Ya hotshot, want to get props and be a savior
First show a little respect, change your behavior
Change your attitude, change your plan
There could never really be justice on stolen land
Are you really for peace and equality?
Or when my car is hooked up, you know you want to follow me
Your laws are minimal
Cause you won't even think about lookin' at the real criminal
This has got to cease
Cause we be getting hyped to the sound of da police!

Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police! That's the sound of the beast!

Now here's a likkle truth
Open up your eye
While you're checking out the boom-bap, check the exercise
Take the word "overseer, " like a sample
Repeat it very quickly in a crew for example
Overseer
Overseer
Overseer
Overseer
Officer, Officer, Officer, Officer!
Yeah, officer from overseer
You need a little clarity?
Check the similarity!
The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patrolling all the nation
The overseer could stop you what you're doing
The officer will pull you over just when he's pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill
The officer has the right to arrest
And if you fight back they put a hole in your chest!
(Woop!) They both ride horses
After 400 years, I've got no choices!
The police them have a little gun
So when I'm on the streets, I walk around with a bigger one
(Woop-woop!) I hear it all day
Just so they can run the light and be upon their way

Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police! That's the sound of the beast!

Check out the message in a rough stylee
The real criminals are the see-O-P
You check for undercover and the one PD
But just a mere Black man, them want check me
Them check out me car for it shine like the sun
But them jealous or them vexed cause them can't afford one
Black people still slaves up til today
But the Black police officer nah see it that way
Him want a salary
Him want it
So he put on a badge and kill people for it
My grandfather had to deal with the cops
My great-grandfather dealt with the cops
My great grandfather had to deal with the cops
And then my great, great, great, great, when it's gonna stop?!

Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police! That's the sound of the beast!

Much fun. Doesnt matter if you play at daytime or nighttime. Jump scares everywhere. Wondering whats around that corner? A jump scare. Guess whats inside that room? A jump scare. How do you beat the game? MORE JUMP SCARES. Overall, it is very good game and I recommend 10/10. Plus its free so if you dont like it, (how could you not) no harm done. Just delete and uninstall and be sad forever. Get it. Now. Pls.

I heard of this game a while back when it first came out, I wasn't sure what it was until now. I always thought F.E.A.R was Cry of Fear for some reason; maybe because they're both horror and it has fear in it? Anyway, the whole point is, this game is awesome and just so fun to play.

> The only words to describe this game are: Fun, Intense, Scary, Depressing, Sad, and the list goes on. Definitely worth your time downloading.

> Chances are I'll be playing this game when you read this.

> Game rating? Obviously a 10/10
