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...

It's free!

And he can't make an Indie game because he didn't made Source Engine! It will be illegal.

I totaly changed my mind after playing! So perfect and it's REALLY a total conversion of HL2... but you should change menus too.

Forget what I said and my final argument is... If you can get a license to make a indie game, go ahead! Your game is really nice! Mapping, modeling, animations... And if it doesn't cost too much you can be sure I will buy it.

Bye and I really loved your job... sorry about what I said before playing it.

*sigh* Another mod going indie like Dear Esther...

The conclusion about all of this is, IMHO : you should have put a donation system for both of these mod's... with exclusive content, before the release, for the donators.

However, do as you wish, I'll never be a fan of these turns of events, and I hope your mod (which is good) will have success.

This has the potential to be really awesome if it's taken to it's full potential. In it's current state, it's just a interesting novelty.

For you maybe, not for everyone.

I beat it, but in the end, honestly, I felt as if I had wasted time. Not to say the effort wasn't made, but there was no story at all. He says it's coming in the next...but you should ALWAYS start off with the story to keep people interested.

Why should I care that I am some guy in a tomb killing mummies? They give me no reason too.
