Sorry about the Delay but we were hoping to get a Friday Frenzy - Contagion DLC + NON DLC content Stream going today. Issue is the new map that will release sometime after our Free DLC was just going through some significant updates but looks awesome but what killed it was our latest dev build update which is crashing without a crash dump so the Programmer is going through the code. We could of course revert but that would only delay DLC release which we don't want to do.

DLC Status page will be updated shortly regarding release and as for a date I've already PROMISED no later than April and I never promise so I'm practically 100% sure we will have it out as promised (seriously look it up since early GoldSrc days. I won't promise haha).

Alex and I will be playing part 2 of our Co-op of Don't Starve Together a fantastic open world survival game that we totally failed at last week but were catching on to at the last second. Of course we will not only be giving away this one game but the MEGA BUNDLE!

I will put in an extra effort this week while moving into the new house to also try to get Friday Frenzy setup for Contagion DLC & More Content Stream & Contagion Giveaway!

So today is my 6 month anniversary back in the US after living in Japan for 12+ years and while I am missing my wife and kids while immigration gets their things together and keeping us in the dark, I did just get my Home Loan approved and will be signing for my new place next week.

But of course that doesn't matter! Things are going great with the DLC and some big plans for the future of Contagion that we haven't yet discussed openly are looking promising! GDC 2015 was also a blast and sorry to all our friends we couldn't arrange time to meet :/ Was pretty hectic start to finish.

On a side note, Jason our level designer (having already nearly finished a new Escape map will likely be doing weekly streams of his work in the near future. Of course he's quite ambitious and is bringing more substance to these maps which we've wanted to do for awhile so more content not far from DLC Release)!

IMPORTANT! If our Stream goes live today we can't play Contagion as I've put all developers on a release time frame for March or at Latest April so no time could be put together to build a version for "Friday Frenzy" so if we do stream it will be "Contagious Gaming" where we will play a game that is not our own.

Also I'm currently on the phone with the IRS sorting out personal issues detailed a bit more here - http://steamcommunity.com/app/238430/discussions/0/617330406649408670/

That said it is looking like today's stream will be late if I can stream that is. If for any reason there are further delays or I can't I will inform you all immediately!

As for GDC 2015 it went very well and we will be releasing media on that and ZombieFest shortly.

Monochrome on our way to GDC 2015
In roughly 12 hours I (Brian "Tatsur0") will be on my way to the airport to fly to San Francisco, CA for this years Game Developer's Conference where I will join up with Alex "Swolfington" & Joseph "SickJoe" to meet with friends, colleagues, publishers, and more!

But why GDC?
GDC is great for Developers and those seeking them. Quite a lot of business gets done and the simple answer is we're going out there to further secure the future of Monochrome which in includes Contagion!

Any other reason?
In fact there is another. We are excited to be sitting down with some big names regarding our next game we've been hinting at "Project Ageless". This game is inspired by the classics and today's geniuses and will be a Sci-Fi Horror title that should shake things up! If all goes well we should be able to release a bit more publicly during/after the conference!



Wait... What about Contagion?!
Do not fret!!! We have an incredible team who are working in sync with one another and soon not only will we be releasing the DLC (once we return will be discussing a release date with the team and hopefully announcing it which will put me in the awkward position of making a promise and you should know by now I hate those) but also new maps, weapons, features such as improved matchmaking, lobby system, animation system, AI, melee, and much more... yes that includes our goal to release on Mac & Linux still knowing it's going to be a hard and long road but anyone that knows me from the Quake/GoldSrc/Source days knows I'm stubborn and am not one to quit easily. There is no reason to be concerned!

I hope you all are as excited as we are and will wish us luck on our vaca....business trip and if you happen to be at the Conference be sure to let us know by Emailing contact(at)monochrome-games(dot)com!

Sorry we're late but we ended up screwing things up to setup this special DLC "Friday Frenzy" teaser Stream! We don't want to give everything away but in the process we had to start sorta from scratch to fix some code issues but don't worry backed up where we left off so nothing lost just delayed.

I want to thank Alex & Robert Gatson and everyone for working very hard today to help us resolve the issues.

Once again we're sorry for the delay and even though you won't get to see everything we will be showing you some sweet new DLC and giving out Contagion Keys!

Free DLC Bundle
Check out what's to come soon!

4 New Characters


4 New Weapons


2 New Maps


1 New Game-Mode
CF_ (Flatline Game-Mode) is a cooperative survival wave-based mode where your goal is to survive as long as possible (with a potential final fight). Unlike the other game modes, you do not return as a zombie when you die. When you get got, you end up in a unique "Medical Triage" location that zombies can only enter if all players perish, thus losing the round. However as long as there is one 1 living survivor at the end of a wave, all players will spawn outside the Triage and can then prepare for the next wave. Each successive wave becomes more and more difficult, and as waves come to pass, access to new area opens up. This gives the horde new ways to reach you, as well as a chance to rescue AI survivors (they must survive the wave as well!) who will provide a cache of helpful items for the upcoming wave. Ultimately we are still striving for a unique game each and every time without any predictable patterns or spawns while also allowing for the environments to change as well.

See you soon!
