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

Great game, awesome spooky feel. Has the essence of a 90's horror game. Only complaint I have so far is the difficulty of traversing through windows. I just can't seem to time the jump perfectly to get through windows easily. If the devs could add an action key for this, or simply make the windows larger, then I would give this game a 4212/4117.

Awful voice acting is really my only complaint. The game is built on the goldsrc (the same one Half-Life 1 runs on) engine, and has tight controls and excellent combat. The scares are really nice, and the jump scares are few and far between. It's very atmospheric, and even has a co-op function. It's also free. FREE.

It'll also even run on potato PC's. So pick this up. What do you have to lose, honestly?

YESSSSSSS
This is the game that introduced me to the horror genre. I am TERRIBLE with guns in games (normally), but I made my way through this one fine. There were a few challenging places, but overall, I could handle it. I love the dark storyline and creativity of the various monsters. Being free makes it all the better! Definitly worth the download and time!

I’m a huge fan of Horror, and this was an awesome psychological horror game. It was also free so it was a win win. Good story, graphics are what you’d expect from an older game/ mod. Need more games like this!! Oh, and it’s best to play by yourself in the dark :p
