Contagion isn't your average Zombie Shooter but instead takes a more realistic and different approach to the popular genre with unique characters, environments, weapons, items, and a built in system that makes every round completely unpredictable with resources, objectives, and paths ever changing.

Contagion - Sept 14th Update :: Significant Improvements, Update on Linux/Mac, and More



Today's update may seem smaller than it really is which has more to do with a great deal of work than the lack there of. Since our July 31st/August 1st release our focus has been on the Free 1st DLC Bundle and the Core Game Mechanics much of which is still being prototyped and tested for upcoming releases.

There hasn't been a single day of inactivity and we may have some additional surprises coming your way. Even with me flying back home to the States to save the Company additional expenses and get me on a timezone to better run things with Alex Wright (COO) I already have a powerful NoteBook to continue my work and everyone knows what they're do. I will also be making my first public appearance via a popular Talk Show on October 10th, Sponsoring and Running a Large Venue with 32 high end machines in the center of ZombieFest (with possible special guest appearance), and I think we might hit up Universal and/or DisneyWorld (never been to Florida) the day before we return.

Our Changelog is missing a considerable amount of AI Code, Optimization to Code, and further steps towards including the features we've mentioned such as an improved and much needed lobby system for those not wanting to go through the trouble of setting up a server which requires the usual Port Forwarding and more or 3rd Party Lan related software, New Animation System for our MoCap Animations, Ranking, Unlockables, Stats, and cosmetic options for players.

I will not see my family for some time as we sort Immigration which means I will be lost in my work. This year is going to be a very exciting year!

Check out today's Update (Including additions that didn't make it in the Build Changelog Text)-

Contagion - Update September 14th Changelog:
  • Added new triggers and challenges to Biotec
  • Added new gates to CE_StoneCreek
  • Added new sounds to improve atmosphere and immersion
  • Improved Sound Zones
  • Optimized AI Code
  • Optimized Core Engine to boost Performance

    Players & AI
  • Fixed a number of scripts for more accurate and improved game-play

More updates coming and without the major delays!

Very soon we will be leaking more about the upcoming Free DLC as you may have caught some of that in the past. All 4 weapons are nearing release status, All 4 new characters are looking great (Manuel, Yumi, Mia, & Curtis), Both Maps again right on track, and Flatline is looking very promising. There are rumors of a release date and originally was planned for 3rd quarter but too many deaths, babies, and overhauls have led to delays. We have no doubt that we'll release before years end only our 1st Free DLC Bundle and we promised 2 but while we have an internal date we do not have a public ETA just yet.

I've mentioned this before but the Engine we're currently on has led to numerous brick walls when trying to do as something as simple as creating working Linux Binaries let alone Linux & Mac Platforms. It wasn't built for it but we have a few tricks up our sleeve to try and sort this out. If for any reason this does not pan out our only option is to update to a later Engine which considering the fact we gutted the original for the most part is not an easy task.

We are currently interviewing some of the best and brightest to either work it out or take up Valve's suggestion to move to a new Engine which will require some delicate coordination so that we can still update the existing Engine while building up on the new. No matter what happens our goal is to keep our promise and release on both Linux & Mac. We owe it to our fans but more importantly to those who made sure we hit that Stretch Goal! I rarely make promises so I never have to break em and I don't plan to break this one.

We highly recommend Linux and Mac users NOT purchase Contagion until this is sorted unless you're comfortable with Wine or Crossover.

Again I am flying back home and this will require a lot of effort to get setup with me passing my work to the team but not being as available as I've been with the community (I will do whatever I can to sort this out ASAP and maybe sooner than I expect). This includes our Weekly "Friday Frenzy" Twitch Stream & Giveaway. Some good news on that front is we've got an eager member of the team working out a SFM intro with a new music track specifically made for it when it will most definitely start back up and may even return with DLC in mind! For now please enjoy the latest Episode 31 (check out any else you missed as well as Contagious Gaming Playlist)!

Expect a pretty epic year! Wish me a safe flight(s) and remember just cause I may not be around for a bit the team is still working day & night and your support has always kept us moving steadily forward!

Zseniális játék! Remekül újra gondolja zombis-túlélős alapokat. Egyedül nem könnyű, de egy baráttal tuti kikapcsolódás. A béta is már stabil lábakon állt, de így teljes játékként abszolút must-buy kategória. Csak ajánlani tudom!

EZ egy alacsony költségvetésű Indie játék.
Hasonló a Left4Dead játékokhoz,de itt nagyobb hangsúly van a túlélésen és bújkáláson.
Grafika apránként fejlődik ahogy a tartalom is,de ez folyamatos és bíztató :)
Van benne néhány játékmód.
Például az Escape ahol akár 8 fővel együtt működve kell kijutni egy adott pályáról.Szerencsére az ilyen összetett modokat kerülik a trollok úgyhogy ez egy elég gyökér mentes játék :)
Személyes kedvencem a Hunted mód ahol mindenki mindenki ellen van,de akár szövetkezhetünk is random ellenefelekkel a többiek levadászásában.Az elesett játékosok pedig zombiként npc sereget gyűjtve mehet a túlélők után :)

miért is lenne 2014-ben egy kibaszott lobby rendszer egy zombi játékhoz?

This is a draft review, I'll rewrite this word-hurricane later, treat it like a blueprint.

The game is late by about 8 years in terms of graphics, animations, gameplay and just about anything else you could name. It costs about $20, but for that you get about 3 coop maps and... 3-4 PvP maps. That's it! The game modes do not differ greately, except the coop ones of which there are two and they get boring rather quickly. Maps do change, but the routes are easily remembered, there are about three variations for each coop map, but if you ask me an occaisonally open door that was closed before does not make much of a difference, the tasks are varied but like I said only change twice or thrice per map.

But this isn't even the biggest problem. The worst flaw of the game is what is meant to be its selling point. The devs have made the multiplayer system so difficult and broken it is impossible to join your friends server (trust me I've spent 4 days trying every single solution on forums). The only way to do so is to download third-party programs like Hamachi and I have no intention to do that since I've had less problems joining in a 1999 System Shock 2. The devs are aware of this problem, but they don't want to fix it. Trust me, as I have spoken to them and they say they are denying any bit of constructive criticism. I think they are hinting at that "rent a server" feature instead. Pay-to-play? No thanks. And if you don't want a server and just want to play with your friends, be aware that numerous people will join as zombies 5 minutes before your escape in a 30 minute map and eat you and your friend alive, and they will pick your server out of about 500 empty ones available, yeah the community is nice too.

(A link to the discussion: http://steamcommunity.com/app/238430/discussions/7/540743212111472871/)

This game is in development hell, essentialy you are buying about 5%-10% of what is promised. For this price, there has to be something like 50% more weapons, a campaign mode, 15-20+ maps, a working multiplayer, less bland characters that only differ slightly in voice and hand textures. But more than that, it should be somewhat playable because the balance is broken hopelessly (I'm talking about coop, since nobody buys these games for PvP), three guys vs. three zombies is an impossibility. In fact, one zombie player against 5 survivors gives the zombie about 70% chance of winning, as I have never seen zombies lose unless it's near the very end of the map. The maps are confusing, the directions are seriously broken, people spend 30 minutes trying to fight off zombies looking for an escape truck just to find it half-way through the map in a random detour.

"Realistic" zombie games were the talk of early 00's and many mods were made for a number of them, some were free and more complete than this. If it came out then as a mod, I'd download it and spend maybe two nights for fun, but to pay for something like that in 2014 - no thanks.

The fact is, the game is hopelessly overpriced and late and devs need a reality check. It has no point and no outstanding feature, you begin to wonder as to what the actual point of makiing it was. It isn't realistic enough to be the Arma of zombie games, it's not arcade enough to be for ♥♥♥♥♥ and gigles like l4d, it doesn't have much content to brand it as something inbetween these two zombie extremes. My verdict - the game 's like a random bored zombie that won't even chase you after you poke it, you can just walk past.

If you do not believe a single word I've said, look at the percentage of people that have got the easiest achievements for this game. It's in the decimals for most of them, because I'd bet this game is "enjoyed" mostly over LAN by devs and their friends, and anyone like myself who likes to buy random stuff and make reviews knowing even before the purchase what the game will probably be like anyway.

A little edit: there is a positive review up on the site, that is more popular. It was not removed, although it is early access, unlike reviews by Mantis and other people which were outright banned. Although I might see the logic that it was perhaps, not entirely about the game and more about the attitude of the development team, they were stating an opinion and so should not be banned. I don't see the devs removing the positive Early-Access reviews, so this is hardly fair.

(Final Release) I do not value this game anywhere near $20 right now. The release of the Contagion SDK might change the amount of content available for this game, but right now it is seriously lacking. The description of the game on this store page just sugar coats and exaggerates everything.

Initially the game itself is fun. It gets boring quickly with there only being a few maps total and even fewer co op maps. The game goes on sale for $5 sometimes, I recommend this game at that price (especially if you go into it with friends). Investigate and watch some gameplay before you take this negative review to heart, you could really like the game.
