"The Cursed" is a very unique free realtime-strategy game based on the Spring engine. The game is about bones, undead, demons, space marines and magic settled in a futuristic environment. It is a fresh mixture of gameplay elements from many popular RTS games.

The game features two unique races: The Cursed - a faction combining undead and demonic creatures and the Imperial Guards - human forces with high-tech weapons and incredible firepower. Many units in game have unique abilities, like burrowing, rocket jumping, teleporting, transmutation and aura casting. You will experience a war that is fought with tanks, guns, space crafts, bone dragons, priest, demons, werewolf and angels.

For Linux & Mac users and everyone unwilling to wait for a new installer version: you have to install the game manually (as I don't have any idea about creating Linux or Mac installation files). First you need to install the Spring Engine manually and then put the game content into the Spring\games directory. You'll also have to install maps manually.

Users with ATI graphics cards: There are several known issues with the Spring engine when playing on computers with ATI graphics adapters. For other graphical issies please visit Springrts.com.

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!

I am trying to solve this with Rallehop by pm. For others that may have similar problemes - There are several known issues with the Spring engine when playing with ATI cards:

1) make sure you have the latest drivers installed for your graphics card
2) please take a look here: Springrts.com
3) in short: some widgets cause trouble with ATI cards - try to disable the Chili Minimap (F11 + disable the widget)
4) these problemes are caused by the engine / ATI (depending whom you ask ;) ) - I can't do much about it - Sorry

Lol, I wonder how all that fire and explosions at the end of the promo vid would look in first person. Probably like a glimpse of hell :)

Well done man, game looks awesome. I played some Spring games and none looked that pretty or had that many units. Did you make all of them? Regardless, great job!

Thx. =)

All units, textures and artworks (besides several explosions/FX that are from Gundam RTS and Spring 1944) are hand-made by me.
