hey, guys, Grey is near release and if you want an earlier release date, track it on moddb.
Don't call it "Cry of Fear: Source", seems to me like an attempt to try and use CoF's popularity to get your mod lots of attention and downloads.
It isn't my mod anyway. But it looks like to be a very good mod.
EDIT : damn, can't change the title by editing, aw shit
I hope not, CoF was pretty mundane tbh
the maps do actually look pretty cool tbh, they remind me of that Silent Hill mod
Certainly looks good!
I didn't like CoF. It relied to much on jump scares and not on any actual horror.
I'm not entirely sure saying it's CRy Of Fear: Source a good point, CoF relied on cheap "scares", the actual "scary" moments, were not actually scary, at all.
Even the atmosphere wasn't there, and the monsters were.. Too dumb to be afraid of.
Danm, this mod kinda looks fun, especially with the failed reloads...............
I hope its as good as Nightmare House 2.
Just going to say this mod's being developed by the same guy as Mistake and Mistake-1, if you enjoyed those this one's worth a look too!
I think I can confidently say Cry of Fear had a really good atmosphere, and while the plot was simplistic and - dare I say - shitty, there's actually a lot of symbolism laced in and it can get surprisingly meta at times. also, the unlockable Doctor's Story was incredibly tense.
I liked the pacing of Nightmare House 2. Cry of Fear was too boring to me. And it better not be like half the new mods where it's dark rooms with scary sounds playing. That seems to be a new trend.
And here's the features of what they have the same as Cry of Fear.
1. New monsters, no reskins & workarounds.
2. 8 new weapons, guns with ironsight.
3. Hardcore Mode woth extra monsters and modified maps. (Like Nightmare Mode perhaps?)
4. Totally new maps, textures & prop models.
5. New Story with 2 Endings. (Cry of Fear has 5 endings. )
6. New GUI, sounds and particle.
So since Grey has custom content and multiple endings, it's a clone? Doesn't make any fucking sense plus it's REALLY broad criteria. I have played CoF and Grey. Rumpel and the rest of the people being idiots on that thread are just paranoid.
Sure, similar PR tricks like a progress bar and donator benefits, but who give a damn whether or not Grey does that or not?
Stig, the guy who voiced Simon, apparently likes it. Good enough for me. I'll play it.
Back the fuck off my thread
Nice looking mod, ridiculous backlash, awful thread.
It's funny because CoF tried so hard to be like Silent Hill and the like.
I really don't understand why ruMpel is so butthurt about Grey. It's a free modification that isn't making money, and we're (the developers) not cashing out on its popularity like he is with official mod merchandise and etc. We haven't stolen a single asset and the only similarities lie in the horror genre. He says we stole environments, ideas, and etc, but it's not like Cry of Fear had the most original horror settings of all time. I could go and accuse CoF of stealing environments and themes from Silent Hill, Condemned, etc. (basically ANY horror game in a dark city) but I won't since those locations are horror staples. Our weapons are different, GUI is different, and story is different. Given, we do have a same voice actor, but it's not like Stig is exclusive to CoF and can't voice act for other mods. Rumpel also uses the progress bar thing a lot in his arguments, but come on, is he REALLY trying to own the concept of a progress bar?
The sad thing is that we haven't said anything negative to ruMpel or about Cry of Fear in general; this is all unprovoked harrassment that reaches our team through ModDB, Steam, and elsewhere. Plus, he is using his influence and contacting all the popular "Let's Play" people on YouTube, trying to tell them to not play the mod. As far as ruMpel goes, he has confirmation bias, and since he hates our mod and mod team, he will see similarities wherever he can and call it a "clone."
looks boring I refuse to ever acknowledge it
i mean, that's the criteria for a copy, right?
