About the 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

Pros and Cons here we go! Woot Woot!

What you'll love...
- The Story... It's really Enjoyable and Depressing (hey, it's a horror game) at the same time!
- The Gameplay... Excluding the confusing inventory, the gameplay is awesome! Survival Horror at it's best!
- The Soundtrack... One word: BEATIFUL! If you can, buy it! Support the devs and listen to this relaxing/scary/awesome soundtrack! (actually, there are 2 soundtracks!)
- The Co-Op... Yeah, i guess it's broken and you need to port forward or use Hamatchi, but when you actually get to play it, it's AWESOME!
- The Visuals... It's using a 1998's engine, but looks good by today's standards too! Psykskallar milked everything out of the GoldSource engine!

What you'll hate...
- Some Cheap Jumpscares only scary once or twice...
- Some low res Textures and graphical bugs (you won't notice them if you aren't trying to find them on purpose, hopefully)
- Difficulty curves, ya know... bosses and Sawrunner...
- Forgetting not to waste ammo (you lose unspent bullets if you reload with a non-empty magazine*)
- And of course... having to wash your underwear after playing this amazing Survival Horror game which will not only require you to change underwear, but sleep with the lights on for the next few days!

Too spooky 5 me.

No seriously. I mean it.
Looks like a very nice game but... I can´t even get myself to enter the room in the first corridor.

(Note: I´m easily scared)
