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

I've only played a couple of hours but I think it's safe to say this game is so morbid and depressing. Unravelling the stories of a paedophillic necrophelia obsessed psychopath and browsing through his collection of mementos. Corpse girls with spikes for hands that run at you screaming. You fire two shots at them an they skewer themself in the head with their own hand and fall to the floor wailing- EVERY TIME. Some unaturally tall, blood stained, haggard woman that looks like something out of the grudge twitching her head erratically points at you from your peripheral vision and you are forced to kill yourself. And that's on top of reality collapsing in on itself with the building shifting it shape and closing in on you. Not to mention the chest pumping, dread fuelled suspense moments. I can't imagine what this ♥♥♥♥ is like on hard mode. It's the stuff out of my worst nightmares. Horror at it's finest and it has aged well. ♥♥♥♥ creepypasta. This isn't for the faint hearted. The disclaimer at the start isn't just for show.

This game does something to ya. i dont know what it is, but its almost scary to think about it. i tried to play this game only during the night to add to the atmosphere. this game uses the old goldsrc engine which is pretty much the same engine used in the early half life games but modified for better textures and such. I,ve played a lot of horror games in the past like amnesia, dead space, outlast, alien isolation, etc. this game has some pretty intense scares, but to be honest, amnesia and outlast were much more scary because of the fact you have no weapons. but with all that, this game is still terrifying maybe even more than the others because of one thing... i haven't had depression since i was 15 but after playing through this game, there was a moment and probably my first time ever where i felt like i was gonna relapse back into it. there is something about this games atmosphere thats different from the others and i dont even know how to describe it. the entire game has nothing but dread even the world when you start out doesn't feel real with with constaint night time and all the color feels sucked out of everything. the music can be very nice at times with a lot of atmosphere ranging from pianos to really creepy synthesied music and then there are the tracks that range from loud drones to what almost sounds like machine noises trying to break into your skull. and add that to monsters when you kill them they almost sound like children being violently tortured, you feel like you're gonna leave this game completly broken. i recommend this game if you have a strong mind and play it 1 to 2 hours at a time. it will probably be a long time before i can get the courage to play this game again.

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!

It has everything a free-to-play psychological horror game needs. Best if you're one for jump-scares, loud noises and an eerie atmosphere.

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
