Cry of Fear - concept

Simon, protagonist of Cry of Fear.

Cry of Fear is a total conversion modification for Half-Life. It was released as a mod on February 22nd, 2012, and as a standalone game on April 25th, 2013. On the Cry of Fear Mod page, there is some backstory revealed:

"You wake up in a dark alley, not knowing anything. What has happened anyway? You struggle after the truth and answers. Answers you want to know in the darkness and fear that makes your heartbeat race like violent blows against your head. Where do 'they' come from? What has happened? Are you just going insane? The time is up: You can't stay there reading your SMS's forever. It's time to head out and find the answers".


Cry of Fear takes place in a quiet Scandinavian city known as Faversholm.

The actual location of the city is Stockholm, Sweden.


Cry of Fear has four difficulty levels:

  • Easy
  • Normal
  • Difficult
  • Nightmare

The Normal difficulty is used on both the co-op campaign and the unlockable doctor campaign, and cannot be changed.
