This horror game and it's story is a twist on the Courage the Cowardly Dog episode, "King Ramses Curse."

Story: Eustace has buried the slab in the basement to prevent anyone from stealing it. But King Ramses is not pleased with this at all. He'll do anything to get his slab back, even if it means possessing Muriel to find the slab for him and killing anyone who gets in their way.

As you can tell, this is a Courage the Cowardly Dog horror game, to be honest, I'm not sure if this one came out well, maybe it did, maybe it didn't. I'm probably just being paranoid as usual when it comes to new releases, lol. But anyway, I hope you enjoy it!

And yes, I gotta work on and finish Dracula's Castle Alpha 3 next, I can't get side tracked again!

Woah, this game really got me going for a while but i eventually conquered even King Ramses, nothing can stop me! check me out.. 

Name of the song?

(+1)

You mean the little piano sounds that play when you wake up? It doesn't have a name besides, Courage_Piano_Wakeup.wav lol. Doesn't have an official name besides the code name I gave it when programming the game. XD

men i can´t download the game in this page,you can pass me the game in another link? mega 

That's odd, it should work. Just click the download button, then when it asks for a donation you click no, take me to downloads or donate if you wish, then click the download buttons that appear. You can choose either 32 bit or 64 bit. As for the Mega download link, unfortunately I can't/don't really feel like doing that, sorry.

dave you can pass me the piano song that you put in the game when wakes up coward?

No, sorry.

I did not say coward to you, I mean the dog, the music when wakes coward

I know that, lol. I'm just saying that I can't give you the sound effect, sorry.

Nice game, but only can play it on my laptop, man you have to make them available for windows 7.    .-.

Nothing I can really do about that I'm afraid. But I'm glad you enjoyed it.

old game, but I was just wondering- the place the key is, is randomized right?

Yeah, it's placed in one of the three piles of dirt in the corn field. Each time you play, it changes spots. Unless you're talking about the car keys, yeah those are randomly placed in the drawers aswell.

Hey man can you make a remastered version of this game?

Because i really like your work,and you do great horror games that when i see videos

even on the start im scared lol.

If you're satisfied and don't want to update,thats ok.

Ah, well I don't really think I need to remaster this game just yet, as there isn't much I can do to improve the overall graphic and gameplay qualities. But I'm sure I will eventually remaster it if I seriously improve my modeling skills one day. The only games I see that could be remastered or recreated are really old games of mine, y'know games like Scooby Horror 2 or Dora is Dead. And maybe recreate games like Desperate Escape or The Explorers in 3D. But if I were to update this game with something new, I'd probably do that sometime in the future if I feel like it could use some improvements.

can you update this game

There's nothing else that needs to be done. I'm pretty satisfied with the final product.

it's a challenge but i love this game because as a child i used to watch courage the cowardly dog all the time so this brings back some childhood nostalgia for me plus i have seen markiplier play it so i am here because of that too

hard

Courage is back to save the day again...such a great game man... Thumbs up

Why did you post another comment of the same video? Your first one was a couple of days ago. That was fine. But you posted another comment that's just the same thing. Don't go spamming the same video over and over again.

My bad.

(+1)

the grapics to this daves games are awesome they mostly look like animation graphics dave this is me from youtube cayden

This game is awesome! But here somenthing you can think..Why dont you add that zombie i dont remember his name but if you cant do it.For me its ok

Ah yeah that dude. Though it wouldn't fit with the theme of this game, plus Courage's Curse is already finished, lol.

Lol.

i have some problems ... im using Acrobat Reader DC to open it .. (Adobe Reader idk ) but it doesnt want to open .. it says something like this (Adobe Acrobat Reader couldnt open 'courages curse V1.0.2 (64bit).rar.' because the file is not accepted (or something like that) or the file was damaged 

example : it was sent as an atachement for e-mail and it wasnt decoded corect 

pls help me i really want to play this game .. is too awesome 

(1 edit)

So first, you need to download it and save it, then use winrar (not adobe) to open the rar file, once opened you can access the folder and double click the application to play.

Deleted post

ok ... i found the folder application .. when i double click it it makes my screen black then it shows me like this 

(fatal error :

[file /d3d11rhi/private 

unreal engine in exiting due to D3Ddevice being lost )


i think from there u cant help me anymore 

Yeah, damn, that D3D error is something I can't fix. It's a rare bug that happens to some players, but sadly it's not the game's fault, it's Unreal Engine's fault. Nothing I can do unfortunately.

(+1)

Could you please make this for the Mac?

(1 edit)

I can't port it to Mac cause I don't own a Mac, sorry dude. :/

could you try to make it in unity, theres an option I think, If you can, thank you!!

lol, nah I ain't touching Unity and I can't be remaking an entire game in a different engine just to port it to Mac, Sorry dude. I don't really like Unity anyway, and the fact that you have to code and doesn't have the blueprint system UE4 has makes it impossible for me to use. So using that engine is kind of out of the question, lol.

(+1)

it's fine, I understand...

Here is a quick game-play of Courage curse | Courage is back to save the day again | Courage Curse | Amazing game hope to see more from this game.

Hey, new Itch.io Horror Games video and you know what that means? I need to feature one of your games, of course, because your games are so much fun! Cheers!

An error occurred while launching Courage's Curse

No executables were found

what i have to do?

Did you save the file as? Did you extract the rar file using win rar or any other unzipping application?

Hello. I sadly can't play the game because of an D3D error. It is similar to the one below me \/. The same thing happens to 3 AM AT THE KRUSTY KRAB.

(1 edit)

Agh, I'm so sorry you have to deal with that man. Yeah, it's gonna happen for you for all my games sadly. I really, really wish I could help dude. :(

i have error please help me Fatal error: [File:D:\Build\++UE4+Release-4.18+Compile\Sync\Engine\Source\Runtime\Windows\D3D11RHI\Private\D3D11Util.cpp] [Line: 182] Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost. (Error: 0x887A0006 - 'HUNG')

This is a rare error that occurs for some users. Nothing I can really do, as it's a problem with Unreal Engine 4 and not the game. :/ Sorry man, I really wish I could help. I have looked up some solutions to this problem but the only thing that came up was that if you're using a laptop to disconnect the charger or was it connect the charger, I don't know, one of the two and apparently that fixes the problem. Dunno if it'll actually work but it's worth a try if you're using a laptop.

Thank you Dave Microwaves Games for recreating my childhood. :)

Lol, no problem! Glad you enjoyed the game. :)

(+1)

I did :)

(+1)

Yooooo! This game was A BLAST playing man. It literally was like i was playing through the cartoon episode. I loved everything about this thing. Props to the game dev for all the work he put into it. Here's my playthrough of it

(+1)

I'm really glad you enjoyed the game dude! Thanks for playing!

no problem man! This game was freaking awesome! Im trying to make a video on 3am at the krusty krab too....but i just accedentally deleted all my gameplay files smh 

(+1)

Oooof, that's rough man.

(+1)

I had a blast playing this game! Definitely check it out!

(+1)

This show terrified me as a child! Out of all episodes, this one stuck with me and gave me so many nightmares. I'm happy to see somebody turned it into a horror game, and I am far from disappointed! :) 

It was quite hard to pull it off in recreating the house and pretty much this whole game, but it was most certainly worth it, lol. Glad you enjoyed it!

I could imagine. Can't wait to see what you're working on next!

I'm really hoping people will like my next project. It's an original horror game based in space but has the style of a 1960s sci-fi horror film.

I'll be keeping an eye out. Let me know when it's complete so I can play it.

Sure thing! I'm really excited to finish this one.

(+1)

So cool to travel to the Courage the Cowardly Dog universe... being murdered by Muriel was a little less cool ಠ_ಠ

lol, I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

yea king ramses posseded muriel to kill courage and find the slab

I like the idea, and loved the show, but again, having the same issue with all of your games. Even on the lowest setting it runs like shit. Are the models just thrown together real quick? I don't think they're optimized properly. It's not my computer, it can run far better games in terms of visuals, so this game should theoretically run as smooth as a baby, but it doesn't.. I understand you probably just thrown this together as a test or something, but it's a shame because I can't really test it if it doesn't run well. 

No actually, I didn't really throw anything together. In fact, the models have a pretty low verticie count. I've seen most people play the game without a hitch, so I assume it's that my games are unoptimized for your system? Or because I'm using Unreal Engine, and that engine is notorious for using up your CPU n such. I don't really know honestly.

Thanks for the response. I really don't think it's Unreal, as I've played many games that are built in Unreal, such as Dishonored, Hello Neighbor, Outlast, to name a few and I can run them on fairly high settings too 

Who knows. But I definitely never slap these games together, lol. It could be any number of things. I'm just not that great at optimization.

(+1)

Another awesome game! I loved (well still love) Courage the Cowardly Dog. I like that you not only made a horror game out of a kids show, but kept it pretty accurate to the show.

Which I guess says a lot about the show... :)

(2 edits) (+1)

Glad you enjoyed it man! Sorry I made the game rather difficult to beat. ;D

(+1)

I don't think it's too hard. Like I said in the video, not finishing it has more to do with time constraints on my end and trying to stick to my upload schedule than anything :)

(+1)

love your games! I have no idea how you make them so cool considering you microwave them... but Is there anyway to download the chase music?

Lol, thanks! I always work hard to try to make my games as best as they can be. :)


Also, here's both of the chase themes. They're from the show, I didn't make em.


Thanks

(+1)

There are times when you realize...What would a cartoon look like as an actuall horror game...This is my response...MY GOSH! COURAGE! YES!

sorry if this count as some spam or something but when i found this out it was just so good Four players! (Sadly only one can do stuff and you can only play as one at a time.)

I'm still wondering why does the corn disappear when you change graphics in-game?

lol holy shit, you actually did that. I purposefully left the "Network Character" in just in case someone did something like this. And yeah I have no clue either, I know it has something to do with the graphics change that it disables foliage. Cause the Corn Field is considered "foliage" to save your framerate from dropping. If it was a regular actor, it'd be dropping the frames.

oh, well...

(+1)

This hit in all the nostalgia feels! It was simple, but fun, and hearing the Courage the Cowardly dog action music playing while being chased was just perfect. I actually want to see more Courage games now xD

(+1)

Excellent Work on this one Dave Microwave Games! Game was very scary, a lot of fun, and extremely difficult. At least for me. lol! Keep it up! Cheers!

Glad you enjoyed it! :D
