Happy Independence Day all! For those both celebrating the 4th and those not! At home it is still a patriotic holiday but no longer one that holds any animosity and so I believe can be celebrated by all especially considering 3 of the 5 who are exhibitors at our Rooster Teeth Expo 'RTX 2014' Gaming Booth for Contagion are actually from the UK!

Unfortunately I don't have the pleasure of celebrating in Japan with the exception of enjoying another Friday Frenzy Stream & Giveaway! Which will start 10mins from the time of this post!

Watch last weeks highlights in the mean time here-

Welcome back SickJoe! As many of you may know our Texture Artist and Co-Creator of the Official Contagion Comic "Contagion: Arrival" has just returned from HeroesCon where he was passing out signed copies of printed versions of our Official Comic and discussing both the art and the game he's been working on.



We've been waiting to announce it but after all of his hard work we're finally returning to updating the Comic weekly! We're curious ourselves how Volume 3 will end and where 4 will pick up!



Check out the latest -HERE-



Dec Doyle, Josh Lennen, Joe Henson, and Andrew Hielscher will be heading out soon (some in the next 5 or so hours to grab a train early as hell in the morning to make their flight), flying to Austin, Texas for the Rooster Teeth Expo aka RTX where we have an Island Booth and will be sharing Contagion with the attendees and media! Some of you we know are coming and look forward to meeting you all! They will be returning on the 7th but we should have daily updates to feed you at the end of each day!

We've got a nice juicy update in the works and once we get our Developers back, it will be the primary focus! Again they return the 7th so we expect the next update to be delayed for obvious reasons but we're looking at releasing it sometime between the 13th-14th. Believe most will agree it will be worth the wait!

Don't forget to follow our Social Networks for updates on RTX and the Comic as well as the upcoming update!

With the Summer Sale, RTX 2014 Expo on the 4th, and preparing for ZombieFest on one end and development introducing all the new Animations, Features, first Free DLC bundle (4 new characters, 4 new weapons, 2 new maps, and 1 new game-mode) we've been extremely busy and we're looking to release the new Melee System, and 2 PvE maps very soon with 2 more to follow up shortly after with DLC.

In other words, sorry for the delays on Friday Frenzy but they were necessary! Today we return and look forward to getting in some gaming with the community :)

Unfortunately this weeks Friday Frenzy must be cancelled as work picked up last night and while I had hoped we could manage it it was made clear that this would not be the case with us sorting out the final shipping of Razer Hardware to our Top10 "Contagion - Let's Play" Winners, just finished organizing RTX 2014 and the guys/gal are on their way this Independence day, working out our schedule to make it on The Daily Buzz a Talk Show in Florida where the next day we'll be Headlining and running the large Game Venue out there at ZombieFest where we'll be working towards breaking the Guiness World Record with the most Zombies in one location.

Don't fret as we expect to have Friday Frenzy back up next week but if not we'll definitely give you heads up sooner. One of the reasons for the delay of this message is to share some sneak peaks at our WIP Maps with the soon to be released Biotec, and later Harvest, and Union Station (2 Escape maps and a Flatline map which will work perfectly with the new game mode on release of our Free DLC). Again we apologize but all looked good until swamped with more work which has to take priority for all those who own Contagion which I'm sure you can appreciate. Enjoy the screens!








Enjoy the Steam Summer Sale but don't forget our upcoming releases next week with the updated melee system and more (as we update so far every week heh).

It's been a long time coming for many but we've finally added Local Co-op Split-screen without the need like other games to go through a series of steps to get it working right. 2 Game-pads, Keyboard & Mouse & Game-pad, the days of Consoles and PC games lacking this feature may be dying out but this is something we grew up with and playing with a friend or sibling without having to lan was a hot topic for gamers and owners of Contagion so we can now tick our Local Co-op in the listings. We will continue to watch over it and tweak here and there to improve the overall quality of course (no aim assist for game-pads, sorry heh).



Our Survivor AI accuracy is dependent on difficulty as well as commands that are allowed making Extraction while it was still difficult, more realistic and this will only improve throughout the year.

We've also enabled more server commands for Server Hosts to use to setup their servers closer to what they'd like them to be (Dec went to bed and I don't have the list heh)

Check out the changes below in this weeks update-

Contagion - Update June 16th Changelog:


  • Added split-screen support to Contagion, also added menu in options to enable it. (WIP)
  • Adjusted survivor AI accuracy to be less perfect on easier difficulties.
  • Enabled additional console commands to be allowed to be changed by server hosts.
  • Fixed the ability to drop a grenade before infection and kill ex-teammates.
  • Fixed survivor AI being able to receive commands while inside a house or while climbing.
  • Fixed IED and phone screen disappearing near water or mirror elements sometimes.
  • Fixed memory leak issues with multiple flash-lights.
  • Fixed possible server crash-loop when blending as a zombie.


This week we have updates on both Linux and the Mac build. Valve has been quite helpful in keeping on things an we have started working not only on our Linux but also our Mac builds! Whether they are able to release simultaneously or not is yet to be seen but this is great news to those who are eager to play Contagion on their Linux machine/Steam Machine and/or Mac!

Also for those that missed our Official Contagion - Let's Play Top 10 Countdown with prizes exceeding $12,500 check it out!

Next week we're hoping to release our updated melee system that will definitely change the way the game is played and for many this is also another update that's been eagerly awaited. Will also try and grab some sneak peaks of our current maps in development/nearing release like CE_Biotec :)

It has been an incredible but hectic couple of months with Company taxes (we can see the light at the end of the tunnel finally!), major features as we work towards releasing a new escape map, a total of 5 Maps in the works as we speak, some for our upcoming free DLC, some to add to the existing content which will include new weapons, characters, and a new game-mode "Flatline".

But most of you are here for our Official Contagion "Let's Play" Competition and before we scroll down to reveal our Top 10 picks and the winners, we'd really like to thank everyone who participated which we ended up with hundreds of entries and strained eyes! Now without further ado let's get on with the winners!
