About This Game


Cold Comfort is an asymmetrical 5v5 Tactical FPS.

Play as either a Survivor or a Gamma Prime- each side having completely unique game mechanics and vastly different goals.

Each Survivor has their own exclusive weapon sets, skills, and gadgets. Their unified goal: the preservation of humanity from the throes of the Gamma Strain pandemic. They must rescue and evacuate civilians, ensuring that the infection does not spread.

As with any virus, it's main prerogative is to evolve and disseminate. The Gamma Primes, victims mutated by the Gamma Strain, are the perfect catalyst for this task. As a Gamma Prime, you start the game embodying an infected rat. Scurrying around, spreading terror and infection.



The more corpses and civilians you infect, the greater your respawn pool becomes. Choose when you want to take the next evolutionary step, and become a zombie, and then fully evolve into a Gamma Prime; using these stages to your advantage.

In Cold Comfort, the one true commodity is human life.

Behind the curtains of this struggle for survival, a much bigger story is playing out – a story involving a huge pharmaceutical corporation with a vision and all the things that can go wrong, because humanity is simply not ready for immortality.

FEATURES

  • Barricades & Traps: Survivors have a number of tools at their disposal to maim and injure.
  • Dynamic Day/Night Cycle: The later it gets, the more powerful the Gamma Primes and Zombies become.
  • Dynamic Destruction: Barricades are only as good as their surrounding environment. Players can take advantage of certain structural weaknesses.
  • Gamma Prime Spawn Pool: The Gamma Prime’s spawn pool is dictated by the number of zombies left on the map. No more zombies means game over.
  • Play as the virus: A truly asymmetrical aspect - Gamma Primes always spawn as rats, can evolve to zombies and then eventually Gamma Primes, and when they die the cycle continues.

MODULAR AI SYSTEM


Enabling a modular AI system allows for added depth and immersion, ensuring a wide variety of Civilians and Zombies.





GAMMA PRIME EVOLUTION


Gamma Primes always spawn as rats. They can bite corpses and Civilians activating the dormant virus within. Once bitten, they will transform into Zombies. When the transformation from Corpse to Zombie is complete, they can be bitten again, and the player embodies the Zombie. Players can then strategically choose when to evolve Into a Gamma Prime. Once they die, they spawn again as a rat, and the cycle continues until there are no more viable hosts left, or all of the Survivors are infected.



CUSTOMIZABLE WEAPONS


Each Survivor has unique character-specific weapons and gadgets. Players can customize their weapons, to adapt to their own individual play style.





GADGETS

Survivors have standard gadgets, like rat traps, rat spray, and flashlights, but each Survivor has their own gadget sets, which allows for completely unique tactics.

ABILITIES & SKILLS

Survivors have SKILLS, and Gamma Primes have ABILITIES. Each character has an advancement tree which can be unlocked using the appropriate GNA or DNA.

PERSISTENT CHARACTER PROGRESSION

Unlock and upgrade each character to your liking with branching upgrade options.

BLING BLING

From genetically mutated cowl plates, to weapon skins and baubles, make your characters stand out.

PACK MENTALITY

Multi-level maps combined with strong pack mentality/cohesion mechanics, moral conundrums, and survivor fortifications make Cold Comfort a heart-thumping visceral gaming experience that mixes organized tactical group planning with split-second decision making in real-world scale battles with up to 5 players per side.

THE GAMMA STRAIN

A world ravaged by a deadly virus, the Gamma Strain. Commonly known as “The Sickness“, it is an infectious disease caused by a mutation of the influenza virus. The Global Center for Disease and Prevention (GDC) declared an outbreak of a new type of Gamma Strain A to be a pandemic in June 2022.

GENETIC MUTATIONS

The Gamma Prime are the true survivors, having mutated through the tampered Gamma Strain vaccine. Their enhanced abilities make them a force to be reckoned with. Each Gamma Prime has their own special abilities that make them truly unique and require a completely different play style.

DOWNED STATE

Death is the easy way out. When Survivors succumb to their wounds they enter the "downed state". In this state, they can crawl around, and use their sidearms. Gamma Primes, however, can immobilize them while they are in this precarious and weakened state, and extract DNA from them. This "farming mechanic" is a balancing act. Extract too much DNA too quickly, and the Survivor will die. The extracted DNA can then be used after the match for the player to improve their own Survivor characters; unlocking new weapons, gadgets, and skills.

COMMUNITY DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT

As an indie studio, Gamma Minus considers community feedback crucial in crafting enjoyable and memorable experiences. We want to invite players to take part in the common effort of making Cold Comfort the game you've always wanted to play. That is why we are very transparent in our regular progress reports and interaction with the growing community on our Discord Server. It’s a great opportunity for us to directly discuss all things Cold Comfort directly with our fans.
