Gold Source (also known as Gold Src) is a heavily-modified version of the original Quake 1 engine, that powered some of the most critically acclaimed games of it's day:

  • Half-Life
  • Half-Life: Opposing Force
  • Half-Life: Blue Shift
  • Team Fortress Classic
  • Counter-Strike
  • Day of Defeat
  • and many more.

A powerful and versatile engine for it's time, it helped propel modding forward quite a bit with its mod development tools. And even though it's already 10+ years old, it's mod projects are still going strong.

Campaign Competition Results

The 9 months old Campaign Competition has finally reached it's end! The results are here, and we have a winner! The reason it was delayed was due to some conflicts and the work with Cry of fear stand alone.

Watch the video below to find out the scores and the winner of the competition.

New Coop Campaign

64 Bit Patch

Earlier this week, we released a patch that was made by the community. This patch is meant to make Cry of Fear more stable, and fix a couple of memory crashes.

You can download it here, but keep in mind that you need to be a 64 bit user and have at least 4 GB of RAM: Indiedb.com

Download Cry of Fear on Steam

As said on previous news. Cry of Fear was released on Steam not too long ago. If you haven't read the news about it yet, you can read it here. It contains the changelists and release notes as well: Indiedb.com
