"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. And last but not least, your heroes can turn the tide of war easily.


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.

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!

Well - you can activate the first-person view (press "C" like "camera") for any armed unit and stear it then. But is not exactly the same thing...

Most models are much too low poly for a decent FPS I fear. Back in 2002 they would have rocked in a shooter though! ;)

wow it's really awesome what you have done but to the point
"corpses stay twice as long on the battlefield now"
maybe you can add an option for the multiplayer host for how long they will stay like 'forever, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 30 seconds'
just an idea (:

As I don't have any idea about Linux you need to settle yourself with the Spring Engine's installation tutorials for Linux: Springrts.com

After you have installed the Spring Engine you just need put the content file of the cursed into the "mods" directory. It should look like this: "Spring\mods\cursed_111.sdz"

For a game against the AI you need to install Shard manually (http://darkstars.co.uk/2010/shard-0-31-ballsey) and place these two config files into the directory "Spring\AI\Skirmish\Shard.31-Ballsey\ai\tc":

I hope that helps you. Good luck!
