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...

I played Curse ep1 and it totally blew my mind.
Hope you guys will introduce 1 or 2 new spells and a lot of challenges in ep2.

10/10 (no, really)

Did I break the mod or is there only one ending? I got past the final boss (with the puzzle) and appeared in a totally-sealed up path to the final ramp, but just got turning heads and snakey again. Boo.

The description of the mod is pretty great, though (as everybody else has noted) the combat sucks. So what's left is kind of my least favorite style of game, the "hunt keys to open doors." But there is plenty of great map work.

Also, in the corner up the stairs from where the invincible fast zombie appears, I was able to boost myself up out of the map by standing on stuff and hitting it with the throw.

And yes, the combat is underdeveloped:(

I just finished playing the mod.
First of all, very cool, great work on the total conversion.
*SPOILERS* However, it was very confusing, like one big labyrinth(i'm guessing that's what you were going for with the layout of the levels), and i felt like i missed a whole lot when i got to the end.
Also the first time, i bumped into the worm demon, and when i loaded the last save and took a different route i ended up in a new map, which ended with a snake coiling down out of the wall, followed by the credits..
Are there multiple endings, or did i just mess up real good?
Secondly, the combat felt way too easy, i liked the choice between throwing objects or using the mace, only the mace made every battle turn out like this: select mace, run forward while swinging the mace, continue.
This mod has a lot of potential, but i really think you need to make the combat a lot harder, and guide the player a bit more in the next episode, so that he won't feel as if he's only played 60% of it when the credits start to roll ;)

Good luck with the next episode and keep up the good work!
