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

Surprisingly good atmosphere and gameplay. The look and feel is an early 2000's classic horror game, but with a lot of modern touches.

Insanely hard and very fun with friends. I didn't find it too scary (I get scared easily) but that was most likely due to the fact that the game only ran in a small window that I couldn't get into fullscreen. The game is also very dark but when I tried to change the brightness the game crashed. The game also has some pretty bad preformance and even with a GTX 660 or GTX 970 it was a challenge to keep a consistant 60 fps. All in all it was a very fun experience. Oh ♥♥♥♥ this is an actual review, uh, I mean meme Xd 420 the main bad guy simon looks like a school shooter and he probably shot Harambe :( 6/10

It seemed boring on the first levels. Until those ghost ♥♥♥♥♥es started to appear, it got a lot more scarier.

You Know it is the Best Time to come up with a seccessor to Cry Of Fear.
Make it with a DEEP SAD STORY ENDING AND TWISTS, the best way to do that is my making a charecter and make us fall in love with it, and you know what comes next and cuases that grief :(

I don't understand why anyone would consider this scary. Legitimately just a boring frustrating experience and the only entertainment I got out of it was laughter from how awful the animations are.

Awesome game. Technically superior, well-designed gameplay, frightening atmosphere. Has online coop. Did I mention it's free?

And as someone who's been treated for a depressive episode, I can relate and the story of the protagonist is plausible.

This game is a very interesting and fun game to play, though you have to get the patch for the game, it is still fun to not only play through the story but to get all the endings and get all of the collectables, as well as beating the game on the hardest difficulty, now while the multiplayer is present, the server browser is unable to find servers normally but there are other ways around it. But overall the game is fun and gave me some occasional scares and constantly made me paranoid for the next enemy or boss, if there was ever a sequel for this game, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Damned I lost my balls, I was so afraid on the first mission.

You like horror? Then do not hesitate to play this game in a dark and quiet room after 11pm.
