Cry of Fear teaser released
« on: December 20, 2008, 05:02:04 PM »
Recently, myself and the rest of the Cry of Fear team released a teaser video for our upcoming Half-Life modification, Cry of Fear. The mod is essentially a psychological horror game, set very much in the same vein as Afraid of Monsters. You take control of Simon, a terrified young man trapped in the dark, snowy streets of a quiet European town. Fight your way to sanity through a horde of disfigured horrors hell-bent on your destruction and hopefully find answers and solace in the cold Scandinavian night.

You can either view the trailer on our ModDB page or download the trailer from here!

Turn off all the lights, lock all the doors and enjoy!


Oh, and I almost forgot! We have a surprise for you guys in the form of a 2 minute video of unedited gameplay, due to be released on the 25th of December, although telling you kinda makes the surprise part redundant!

Merry Christmas!

I hate idea of "playable cutscenes" where you have to hit button...can you tell at least few things about them?Will the game show us WHAT to hit so we wont get confused?(like in RE4, i had to hit either RIGHT shift or LEFT shift, not knowing WHICH ONE should be right).

I think your sarcasm detector is broken. There isn't actually a bit where you have to control Simon taking a shit mate.

This is the scene where Simon takes an interactive shit. Left click to squeeze, right click to shake.

Oh god, that make my day. That would be funny.
