bring you a MASSIVE update (on Steam right now, Humble shortly):

Major features:
  • THE MOID (OBJECT COUNT) LIMIT IS GONE*!!! (*Not truly gone, but hardly reachable)
  • Randomized maps: create a map once, play it forever
  • Bunker prefabs: build your bunker of any size in no time
  • AI skill sliders: bored? We have ‘Unfair’ AI skill for ya.
  • Global scripts: add some pepper to any activity or control AI units in the campaign your way.
  • Mod manager: no more .rte renaming!
  • Constructor tool: AI brains seal themselves in tunnels to live long (and probably even prosper).
  • Visible inventory: guess no longer about how many nukes you have left in your pockets.
  • Scenes previews: you don’t have to remember all those scene names.
Content updates:
  • 36 randomized maps for the campaign.
  • Almost 200 bunker prefabs.
  • New Dummy weapon – Lancer.
  • Wounds, jetpacks, headshot damage multipliers, generic variables – all exposed to Lua.
Other improvements and fixes:
  • Deployments can be used instead of units to make your map compatible with any player-selected techs.
  • AI skill adjustments.
  • Resolution selection fixes.
  • HSplitScreen and VSplitScreen work just like before.
  • Secret endless campaign mode.
  • Tooltips on/off checkbox.
  • Steam can be manually disabled if any start-up problems arise.
  • Diggers create tunnels which way easier to walk through.
  • Factions balance tweaks.
  • Campaign strategic AI tweaks.
  • Campaign tactical tweaks.
  • You can safely set health more that 100, yet it’s still not recommended.
  • Foreign items can be removed from the buy menu.
  • Press CTRL+W to dump the entire world to .BMP file.
  • Author can specify default gold, fog of war and other options for your activity and prevent player from changing them.
  • Some activities may load scenes while discarding any pre-placed actors.
  • Deployments now work correctly in scenario/skirmish modes. No more zombie spawns!
  • AI actors in sentry mode no longer ignore enemies after reloading.
  • The jet-pack mass indicator use jet-pack strength instead of hard-coded values.
  • Small objects are less likely to mysteriously gib after a collision. (MOs now automatically gib when AngularVel > 2000/(MaxRadius+1) instead of 100).
  • Meta Game: Crafts with MaxPassengers = 0 as are not used as drop crafts by the AI
New ini-properties:
  • “AutoStabilize” (1 or 0) for ACDropShips. Enable/disable hard coded use of the upper thrusters, see the Dummy Drop Ship for a lua stabilization script.
  • “ScuttleIfFlippedTime” for Dropships and Rockets. Craft gib if upside-down more than this value in ms. 4000ms by default, disable with -1.
  • “LoudnessOnGib” [0..1] for MOSRotatings
  • “LoudnessOnEmit” [0..1] for AEmitters
  • and many more here
Lua changes:
  • Exposed MinThrowVel and MaxThrowVel for ThrownDevice

Cortex Command began life as the project of a Swedish high school student. That high schooler has now turned 30, gotten married, moved to the United States and become a citizen. And, at long last, he's launched his game.


Everything about Cortex Command, by Data Realms, shrieks of a labor of love, from the fact it still has the physics engine that Dan Tabar created for it in February 2001. The trailer you see above was made by a fan "who lives in the far east of Siberia," where evidently there is a huge following for this game.
The music in that trailer comes from Danny Baranowsky, who did music for Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac.


We first wrote about it four years ago.


Cortex Command doesn't seem to fit into the easy boxes that we put a lot of games into. It's definitely a real time strategy game, with elements of side-scrolling platformers in it as well. The game has been released on Steam and is available now for $17.99. It works on both PC and on Mac.
