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.

"So WTF is going on" Update

So, real quick. We haven't forgotten about Contagion. However, Outbreak is releasing next month, so it's been quite busy and all of the attention has been on it.

A few months back, I did have a little bit of time on my hands and actually tried to update the game. However, I ran into some issues and was unsuccessful.:steamfacepalm:

We got ahold of the original programmer to get his workflow and see if there was something I was doing wrong, but we couldn't figure it out at the time (also, he had been out of the game for awhile).:steamsad:

You can watch dev streaming of Outbreak through Twitch or YouTube:steamhappy::

or

Also, every once in awhile during streams I will be providing Contagion keys, so if you don't have one, jump in and chat. If you do, grab one for a friend.

Once things slow down for Outbreak, we'll go ahead and take another crack at updating Contagion. Sadly, we don't have anyone dedicated (and really can't afford it right now) to OG Contagion.

I just realized that my head has been down in the sand (I rarely have any spare time) and it's been 4 months since the last update. Time flies. I know you've probably heard this song and dance before but I know from the bottom of my heart that we wish we could clone ourselves and work on both games at the same time. But we can't :steamsad:
