It has been a long time since the last update. Actually I was waiting for the next stable and fully working Spring engine release. I skipped Spring 93.0-94.0 for several different reasons/issues and thus it took some time. Spring 95.0 looks stable and offers tons of bug fixes and new features. Besides making The Cursed ready for the new engine version, lots of things were changed and added to the game.

The game´s economy was drastically changed, as it felt a little “broken” before. The most important thing is, that units do not need energy as upkeep anymore. To compensate for the free energy amount, metal extractors need more power to run. Newly built metal extractors will take some time to reach the maximum extraction speed (progressive mining). Moreover, storage buildings were added to increase your metal and energy capacity.

As a second major change, the cursed faction was strengthened. The shade hero unit has a circle attack now, that hits all nearby enemies. Some units and buildings take more damage. The obelisks have a bigger building range. Burrowed units can not be seen anymore if you walk close to them. … and … and …

Of course, also lots of polishing was done – just check the latest installer.Especially enjoy the new undead marines!
