WISHLIST ON STEAM
EXPLORE COLD COMFORT
- An asymmetrical competitive 5v5 PvP horror survival game that is set in the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse.
- Play as either a Survivor or Gamma Prime.
- Focus on cooperation and teamwork.
- Two distinct teams divided into five classes each with their unique play style, strengths and weaknesses.
- Build and break down defenses and traps, and make use of the various items in their environments, such as electricity, fuel, light and more.
- 4 game modes with emphasis on team-based strategy and objectives.
The players – Survivors and Gamma Prime alike – are thrown into a hostile game world where they need to make a simple choice: Will they play as a team or will they try to survive on their own? This choice is forced onto them by an atmosphere of imminent danger and the overwhelming odds of a world that changed too suddenly. Behind the curtains of this struggle for survival a much bigger story is playing out – a story involving a huge pharma corporation with a vision and all the things that can go wrong, because humanity is simply not ready for immortality.
Multi-level maps combined with strong pack mentality/cohesion mechanics, moral conundrums and survivor fortifications make Cold Comfort a heart thumping visceral gaming experience which 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 (GCDCP) declared an outbreak of a new type of Gamma Strain A to be a pandemic in June 2022.
Vyal Pharmaceuticals was tasked to create a vaccine to stop the spread of this vicious virus. Initial test subjects were shown to have a 100% recovery rate, and an end to this global pandemic was in sight. Due to the positive preliminary testing, Vyal stocks rose significantly, and they released their perspective pricing scheme for the global roll out of the vaccine, which was met with outrage.
For many, the price of the vaccine was morally reproachable. Can you put a price on the very existence of humanity? Well, Vyal did.
COMMUNITY DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT
As game developers we sometimes suffer from tunnel vision, and forget what is truly important to you, our fans!
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.
