What is with the sudden overabundance of horror mods these days?
It seems for every decent Source/GoldSrc mod that is currently in development there are 3 or 4 more horror mods with development teams who believe that to induce fear you need darkness. These so called ‘teams’ are usually made up of a single kid producing content, sometimes even less than that (hurray for stealing other peoples work!)
Here are the basic essentials to producing a horror mod these days:
- 1 Blocky map with no lights 100 zombies and 1 or 2 corpses.
- 1 custom zombie model / skin.
- A few custom zombie sounds.
- 1 crappy ass title (Fear: Source / Dark Black / Zombie Manor)
Compile and release and a throng of equally talentless teens will no doubt praise it as the work of a god, inspiring them to release mods of their own.
What a load of bollocks.
