Sped up animation rigging of a zombie reaching through a barricaded window.
Building (and destroying) barricades is a major part of Cold Comfort.
The Survivors have an unlimited number of barricades able to be placed on windows or doors to prevent the Gamma Prime (and normal zombies) from having a line of sight, and slowing down their progression. Barricades can be easily identified as they are wooden boards.
Normal barricades can easily be destroyed (by both teams) with a special attack or with three melee hits.
Since they break the Gamma Prime’s line of sight, it is recommended to place them all around the objective if possible, which will also slow them down and reveal their location upon hearing a barricade being destroyed. It is also viable to place them around popular breach points that will ultimately allow the Gamma Prime easier access to the objective if not done otherwise. Doing this away from the objective may also confuse Gamma Prime controlling rats during the preparation phase as to the objectives true location if it is not already known. It is advised to not place barricades between Survivors or objectives in adjacent rooms as it will slow Survivor movement in the area and make it harder to provide support to teammates.
Knox features the unique ability to place three reinforced barricades which are extremely resistant and takes between 12-20 melee hits to destroy.
In addition to the barricades, Cold Comfort features a variety of traps, both for the Survivors as well as the Gamma Prime, more info can be found here.
Cold Comfort is an asymmetrical zombie co-op/multiplayer tactical FPS currently under development.
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.
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.

Eradiclicker is a companion app/meta game for Cold Comfort. In Eradiclicker, you have to eradicate (see what we did there?) various viruses, thus earning points for research which can be used to find more sustainable methods of obliterating those pesky virus. Because, let’s be serious, nobody likes viruses, right?
Eradiclicker is a simple level based brain-numbing experience akin to cookie cutter and the like but with viruses! After every level completed, you’ll get a detailed breakdown of how many viruses you destroyed, which ones, and info on various viruses, like tidbits of virus wisdom, ya know, for the kids to learn and stuff. This meta game will tie into the ACTUAL game (Cold Comfort) and you’ll be able to purchase cosmetic upgrades with points that you’ve accumulated in Eradiclicker.
