MOTY 2008 Award + artsy teaser + a new mummy + worms

Posted by on

The release date is pushed back by a month because we working on some extra content. There will be a news update about it soon.


I'm excited to say that Curse won the Best Upcoming Mod Editors Choice category of the 2008 Mod of the Year Awards. I'd like to THANK YOU ALL who helped/supported the mod!


And now, please enjoy the latest (and most unusual) Curse teaser.


I've created a picture showing the tech behind the 'worm-floor', featured in the Meet the Wormdemon video.


The 'worm-floor' is an animated texture, created from a lots of tiny worm models.
In the perspective view, you can see curves used to move and deform the worms.


The pile of papers on the left is the 'design-document' of Curse. Initially the Wormdemon was a 'bit' different than it currently is: back in 2006 he was a humanoid created from mud like a golem or something like that. But a Muddemon isn't shocking and scary enough right?


The Wizard is the third type of mummy in the first episode. He'll be using ranged attacks (fireballs).

That worm demon somehow reminds me from leechman from Resident Evil: Zero.

Guys, keep it up. :)

I think it's a one person team, and maybe one other helper :P But he/they are doing an amazing job.

The worm monster reminds me of the NULL monster from the reboot days.
