Nightmare House 2 is a free, horror-themed first-person-shooter game, and the direct successor of the first classic horror map pack "Nightmare House". Nightmare House 2 is based on the Source Engine by Valve, also considered a modification (mod) made for Half Life: Episode 2.

The story resumes with the player lost and confused in a hospital known as "Never Lose Hope". With no understanding of how you came to be there, there's only a vague memory of the mysterious, haunting girl from Nightmare House. Soon it will be difficult to determine between a dream and reality. How long will it take you to realize that escape is not an option?

I have decided to make the entire development process of Nightmare House 2 open for you fans and developers out there. It's been a long, great experience and due to the heavy demand I organized everything in one compressed file. It contains work from me and the rest of the team, some of which did not end up in the game.

What's in The Lost Files?

Documents: Our improvised design document, sketches/concepts and old todo lists.
Music: Lots of cut tracks, testings of style, etc. (for the final OST read along)
Sounds: Unused SFX.
Videos: A few videos we  took around development and some fun stuff.
Pictures: Loads of pictures from in-dev maps, models, old crap and fun.

Nightmare House 2 started booting up in around 2007, two years after the first game came out. Development has been through many phases, resulting in scrapping a few of the first concepts in early development phases. The development finally picked up as the story became solid, completing what we first started in 2005.

The devoted team worked on this massive project from all over the world in their free time. It all came from our pure love to video games, and ambition to raise something creative of our own. Check the credits to the right to learn more about us.

If the public demands, we will release the original design notes, development phases, and other material from development.
