And now, something completely different: Curse episodes the indie Game! There will be a proper announcement of this (with new media etc...) but that will be later. Till that here's what will be different in the indie game compared to the mod:

- The first episode will be longer
- There will be a (properly implemented) melee combat system (this is alone will make it a completely different experience)
- New monsters... except the wormdemon

No more updates here (unless Valve releases the OS X modding tools for Half-Life 2, so I can make the Curse mod Mac compatible). Expect a new Curse episodes IndieDB profile soon...

Brilliant mod even if it was short, i saw it as a demo of the potential of the source engine that people keep putting down and saying is too old. Great textures, interesting gameplay, this mod felt so polished it could be comercial game fantastic work 10/10.

I thought it needed a tutorial. took me about 5 deaths to figure out the combat mechanics. (quote) "ooh, mummies! is this what the weird purple visor is for? okay, click. click. click. ummm, how do I fight them? oh, they're attacking. maybe I need to hold the button down. nope. maybe it's oh no I'm dead." (repeat last two phrases as long as required)
