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 - ZombieFest & "Break Down" WebComic :: Volume 3 Week 9

2 September 2014



We our very passionate about our work and community and from reactions from Romero's "Finally", to the cast of The Walking Dead sharing interest via tweets, as well as major editors and youtubers showing support it would seem we're not the only ones and feel lucky to have reached so many.

Apparently we reached an entire city that shares our passion for Contagion when a member of the ZombieFest commity in Lakeland, Florida USA introduced themselves and their event and asked if we would be interested in using their Studio (center of the Event), setup our game at the Venue, and be their headline Sponsor as they work towards obtaining the Guinness World Record for having the most "Zombies" in one location which is looking promising with the numbers looking to beat out those in Jersey from last year.

Apparently the City from the Mayors Office to the Police Department (running security) are fans of Contagion which blew our minds and really wanted us to participate when our name came popping up for a Game Center. We've also got Universal Studio's painting people up as Zombies, ZombieFest & Contagion Digital Billboards, Signs on Buses, and more all over Florida (if you're out there, keep your eyes peeled!).

All of Downtown Lakeland is participating and we're honored to be a part of it. They're even preparing a Cake (4'x3') for us and Most everyone from the team will be there as well a possible Special Guest! We'll also be doing a popular Talk Show (has been hinted there may be more than one) aired during Prime Time which we'll release more information regarding as we learn more but we do know we're recording on the 10th (so we'll be around from Oct 9th - Oct 14th with our Families but remember jet lag, 4am wake up for prep, and more. Doubt we'll need the make-up to pull off a decent zombie).



We're all very excited for the event but this has also locked us down in sorting out updates, hitting deadlines, and preparing the upcoming free DLC!

We haven't forgotten our Official Weekly WebComic (SickJoe is just that. Sick and we love it! He'll also be attending ZombieFest for fans of his work and may want to learn more about the Future of Monochrome LLC) and so here is our latest update which was unfortunately delayed due to our Weekend promo that is now over and our bandwidth being torn to shreds by the Steam Community heh.

Official Contagion Comic - Chapter 3 :: Week 9




We're looking into releasing our WebComic in a manageable format as well as our OST which will include our music from the game as well as our cinematic trailer! More surprises on the way and soon!



We really want to meet up with our Fans in Florida so if you can be there on October 11th it'll be hard to miss us. Come on in and say hi, sit down at one of numerous computers and play Contagion! Looking to have some swag and signings of our Comic and more!

If you're new to Contagion but in the area and/or a Zombie enthusiast we still hope to see you there!

One of the most funny and challenging (yes really!) zombie games for a long time. They are really adding something new into this genre.

Had a blast with this one. Too bad there are so few maps but they will probably add more over time.

8/10.

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.
