It's nearly Thanksgiving for many and even if you're not celebrating (in my case my family is still in Japan until immigration gives the go ahead) we still have the Steam Autumn Sale to enjoy! There are a number of great titles especially Indies on sale so don't miss out!

We have more to celebrate as we're much closer to the release of our first FREE DLC Bundle having hired more talent to speed up development (we've been stubborn about releasing quality updates and making sure our DLC is well worth the wait) of the 4 new Characters, 4 new Weapons, 2 New Maps, and our New Game-Mode Flatline with Union Station being the first of many Flatline maps. In addition to the DLC we are working on some very important features to improve the overall experience of Contagion all of which we're hoping to release before the end of the year! Here's a preview of what's to come-

Contagion - Free DLC Bundle Preview





Contagion - Upcoming Feature List
  • Lobby System - No more struggling to host a game with friends. Create and edit a lobby for you and your friends to experience Contagion how you prefer to play
  • Improved Animation System - Utilizing our new mocap animations fully to bring a more immersive experience to your games
  • Ranking & Unlockables - As you play our Co-op on Official Servers you will be able to obtain rewards to customize weapons and rank up
  • Improved Shader System to take advantage of shaders not yet included as well as optimize our existing setup so lower end systems can enjoy some of the shaders they were unable to till now

With another Free DLC Bundle designed and ready to be worked on we will see more Escape, Extraction, Flatline maps as well as numerous bug fixes and optimization. There are also plans to update Contagion's Engine to support Mac & Linux builds as promised. Also worth noting that we're working on a big reveal for GDC 2015 for those attending or keeping tabs on GDC and/or Contagion!

We're sorry for last weeks cancellation of our weekly Stream but Alex Wright and I will be loading up Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel today as fans of the series (apparently not all are fans of TPS but it's our first go of it and so we'll have to decide for ourselves) and looking forward to sharing a copy of the game itself!

For those not familiar this is our "Contagious Gaming" Stream & Giveaway where more often than not play Indies and share our opinions regarding design, development, praise, and constructive criticism or just have fun then giveaway a copy to interested viewers. We will more than likely return to our regular "Friday Frenzy" Stream & Giveaway next Friday with more Contagion.

Join us live in 45 MINUTES as we go live with our Stream & Giveaway "Contagious Gaming" via http://www.twitch.tv/tatsur0

We have more people joining the team to pick up the pace and look forward to this allowing us to share more concrete information with everyone ASAP!

Alien: Isolation
Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition
Borderlands 2

We know it's not Halloween but we didn't have the opportunity ourselves to enjoy it with our fans as planned so we're hoping this may help. I made sure to wake up early and finish my work (till tonight) so I apologize for delaying the Stream till now.

Hope to see you in chat ːclaughː

Contagion - Halloween Sale!
Happy Halloween! To celebrate Halloween we'd discounted Contagion 60% off (are working to setup for 4-Pack and not sure why it wasn't applied to it but can't guarantee that we can get in done in time. Still we are trying!) for the Halloween Sale.

Some have asked why we never got around to a large Halloween event. One was planned but I've been in the hospital in and out all month and there was a death in the family on Alex's end. When asked I made sure the team knew to stay focused on finishing DLC and not to let Halloween side-track new content. I apologize to those that may feel we made the wrong call but I think the majority of players are looking forward to new content, features, performance boost, and bug fixes!

It's been awhile but we're going live in 30 mins from when this announcement goes out with our Friday Frenzy Stream & Giveaway on http://www.twitch.tv/tatsur0 where we'll take a look at CH_Lakeland a map that we feel deserves a good deal more love and are waiting on waivers to open up the world as well as going over our pictures while out there for ZombieFest for textures and props. Be sure to join us and possibly win a free copy of Contagion!

As many of you already know we released our latest update while at the same time out in Florida setting up for ZombieFest which had 30,000 people. It was quite hectic and a few mistakes with updates but we got it out just in time to open the doors to the public.

We did not have the time we wanted to prepare the map and walking around the area we just created for Contagion we were not content with the missing textures and assets the map deserved to really fill it out but the residents of Downtown Lakeland in no way felt the same and were quite overjoyed at being able to walk around a virtual representation of the area they grew up in having been hit by the zombie apocalypse.

Now that we've got a lot of pictures, videos, and media on it's way from hundreds out there in Florida (all will be put together for a media update soon) we have the material needed to update the map and open up some of the interiors with waivers being signed and sent our way so that we can do the map justice. That being said we have had to put Lakeland on hold to focus on finishing up our first Free DLC Bundle so the entire team has and is still working on that now but with Lakeland now up on Official Server's here are some screens the update's changelog.






Contagion - Update October 8th Changelog:
  • Added new map CH_Lakeland (Hunted Game-Mode) for ZombieFest sponsored by Monochrome LLC
  • Added numerous assets for multiple maps
  • Replaced old assets with newer & better versions
  • Optimized, Fixed exploits, Bugs, and improved game-play for both Barlowe Square and Pioneer Express

We've got more on the way and again our focus is our Free DLC (which no won't be here for Halloween which is something we would have like to have done but would have been a rushed job which we try to avoid whenever possible) but still hope to have something special out there for our favorite Holiday!

Also now that we're back we've got the finale of our Official Contagion Web Comic so have a look as next week we will reveal Volume 4 "Discord" and will return to weekly FridayFrenzy's ːbashː

Official Contagion Comic - Chapter 3 :: Week 11 - Finale




We've got quite an exciting year to finish up and some incredible stuff to release. We have proven ourselves open to constructive criticism and will continue to stay involved with all of you to get your take on things as we progress. Updates will start to pick up shortly.



Be on the lookout for more DLC Teasers as we've only barely hinted at what's to come.

I've got an hour till I hit the airport so keeping this short. We're off to ZombieFest now where we'll be having "Big Tiny" from "The Walking Dead" as our special guest and running Contagion in our venue in Downtown Lakeland Florida for the event.



We also created a map specific to the event! CH_Lakeland is done and will be on Steam shortly and of course played in Lakeland itself at the event! DLC is still going strong so do not worry!



We'll be back on the 14th (15th after sleep) and look forward to sharing more of what we're up to.



Wish us luck!
