Cry of Fear
is a horror Half-Life
mod from Team Psykskallar, the same developers who brought you Afraid Of Monsters
, released on February 22nd, 2012.
The mod takes place in the capital of Sweden
, Stockholm, where something has gone horribly wrong. A depressed teenager named Simon gets hit by a car, and after a nightmare, he finds himself in an alleyway with no idea how he got there — and the only way out filled with abominations.
Its four-player co-op campaign follows four policemen stuck in Simon's nightmare, and it has a Gaiden Game
in the form of Doctor's Story, where Simon's doctor vows to destroy the source of Simon's anguish.
As of September 12, 2012, it has been approved for distribution on Steam via the Steam Greenlight service. On April 25, 2013, Cry of Fear
was released on Steam as a free third-party game, no longer requiring Half-Life
and can be downloaded as a stand-alone game. You can find it here
