What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Steam early access will provide a useful platform to help gage the popularity and effectiveness of the game at its current and future stages of development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Its difficult to place a timescale on a full release, as a minimum when the planned improvements are complete and relatively stable, approximately 1 year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“There are a number of planned improvements for the game, including additional game mode(s), levels, and friendly AI improvements. The possibility of workshop support for community levels is also being considered.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Many of the game mechanics are complete including: dynamic spawning, level variances, one touch weapons / equipment, player classes and more. Currently one game mode is fully playable.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will remain free to play.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“As improvements are implemented, an opt in experimental (beta) branch could be used for bug reporting / feedback from the community, the results of which will eventually form the final release. Workshop support is also being considered which would enable community made maps to be included within the game.”

About This Game

Codename CURE is a first person, co-operative zombie game with support for up to five players, providing immersive, fast-paced zombie fragging with fully dynamic and objective-based missions.

As a team of special military operatives utilising a range of powerful weapons and equipment (assault rifles, shotguns, sentry guns, supply chests and more), players are tasked with curing infected areas of a post-apocalyptic world by planting controlled explosives before pulling a short sharp exit.

CURE can be played both on and offline, with or without computer controlled team mates. The game sports a variety of difficulty options which adapt dynamically with the number of players. It includes five balanced player classes: Pointman, Support, Assault, Technician and Sniper.

Very good game for what it is. It does need a few things to polish it up (the main thing being the rechambering animation playing after a melee strike even with a round still in the chamber). Still, for what it is now, it's definitely an enjoyable game.

Your 'Average' (pun intended) experience of Codename CURE:
>Find a Modriot.com server with 4/5 players on cbe_office and join it, it's average difficulty
>Spawn as Indian tech support (Technician)
>Rush ahead of your team (zombies don't spawn unless half your team is there.)
>Teammate spawns behind you and says that he has a Toshiba 1980's family PC
>Zombies spawn
>Put sentry gun down and leave it to get rekt while you run away.
>Sentry gun explodes
>You cry as you see your new friend explode and that there was nothing you could've done to save it.
>You get cornered and die
>Ad about free Clash Of Clans gems plays
>You skip the Ad but you can still hear it anyway
>Respawn
>You're on 3hp for some reason
>Get teamkilled for no reason
>Get called noob and suka (real spelling is censored for some reason) blyat by an edgy Russian 12 year old who slept with your mum and sister
>Retaliate
>Get kicked from server
>Play with AI and beat each map on Insane difficulty
>Try to get Conservationist achievement but die whilst you are on the helicopter
>Get triggered and leave
>Play a match of survival
>Get to wave 3 and die
>Ad stops playing
>Leave
>Try to get those free Clash Of Clans gems
>Get identity stolen by 3 unique Nigerian Princes in the process
>Get 3 unique Trojans and Malware in the process
>Teamkill Nigerian Princes with the £10k that you gave them so that you could recieve £10m
>Trojan teamkills your PC using the Freeminecraftdownload rifle
>It's a 1 hit kill
>You finally recieve the 3 gems after battling the God of Codename CURE
>Spend the 3 gems at the black market of Pokemon Cards in the smoking alley at your local Aldi
>Turns out it was that 'Aldi's Own' brand of Pokemon Cards and you get made fun of for the rest of your life
>Repeat

AI > Players
AI is Skynet
Teamkill/10 would teamkill Skynet whilst battling for Pokemon Cards again

I would say this is the best security contractor game on the market at the present. Sure, it's not very realistic because of the zombies, but it accurately represents the struggles of running your own private military company. Without this game, I would be blissfully unaware of the fact that tactical gloves lend a good sixty PSI of pressure to your punches. If I didn't know that, I'd probably use a knife for a last-resort weapon like some kind of wasteful idiot. Metal is expensive, you know. Anyway, you need to pick the character you most identify with, which is either the first, second, third, or fourth one. None of them have any impact on gameplay, mind you; it's like choosing the arctic skin in Counter-Strike because you like to play in the snow sometimes. I'm getting off topic here: my nose is bleeding and the police are asking questions I don't understand. They are going to take my phone soon, so please take my advice and dowwqqqqqq

Codename Cure is a fun game overall. Here are some pros:

- Fun gameplay. It's addicting and I keep going back for more.

- Difficulty is on par with something like Killing Floor. This game will kill your ♥♥♥.

- Excellent sound effects. I love the sounds the Galil makes; it just sounds like it's not messing around.

- There is a lot to build upon. This game has potential.

A few things that need to be fixed, however. I know this game is early access, but it's best to address these issues now rather then later.

- Random spawns. When I clear a room, I expect that room to be safe. I don't expect to clear a room, put down a chest and take a breather, just to have 15 zombies up my ♥♥♥ that appeared out of thin air. It ruins any tactical chest barricade / what have you.

- The movement seems pretty sloppy. Now I'm coming straight from Killing Floor, where everything feels much more snappy and responsive and I don't know if this has to do with the fact that this game is based on Half Life or not. But the "floaty" movement makes it hard to kite zombies.

- Fire grenades with friendly fire on. It's a bad idea because they last forever. In conjunction with the random spawns, you can throw one just to kill your team because they can't escape.

- Ads on certain servers. What is up with that? Stop it. The sounds from the ads bleed over into actual gameplay.

- Needs more music.

Other than the cons, like I said before I believe this game has potential. To the dev team, if you're reading this, good job and keep up the good work. You have something good going here.

Great game a few things they should keep in mind is to make friendly fire not so damaging. These people on the game run up at me for a zombie kill and ♥♥♥♥ us all to hell. I think friendly fire should either be nerfed with the damage per shot or taken off. I like, it so far and would love to see it devolope. The game is great you get to go threw a horde of zombies and sometimes be the star of the game saving the match. I saved the whole group using 1 grenade and it killed 20 zombies. I think this can turn to a master piece if you made some money and bought some upgrades but not pay to win none of that hell no.
