There are several types of Characters in Cold Comfort:
Survivors[edit | edit source]
The Survivors are, as the name suggests, people who survived the onslaught of the zombies (so far) and did not get their shot of Vyal's Gamma Strain Vaccine – for whatever reason. Some might have simply missed it or couldn't afford it.
But they all try to secure a place for themselves safe from the horde – by either securing areas or fight off the infected. They can make use of all of the environment around them – like barring doors, using improvised traps, and finding and using weapons.
The challenge in playing a survivor is in the limited amount of supplies/weapons/ammo so they will need to make a choice: Will they help each other or will they try to survive by themselves?

Gamma Prime[edit | edit source]
The mutation of the Gamma Strain affects individuals differently. Whereas the majority of the infected populous succumbs to the rapid progression of the mutation, others have been genetically altered, thus creating the Gamma Prime. These subjects have varying abilities and skills, and have been classified as mutants. Presently there are a total of five genetic anomalies, however there have been rumors of more.

NPCs[edit | edit source]
In Cold Comfort, players will encounter many different NPC's (Non Player Characters). Some NPC's play a bigger role in the story progression than others. These individuals can help or hinder players.
