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. From the creator of Zombie Panic: Source Brian "Tatsur0" Comer we introduce it's spiritual successor.
Contagion is finally revealing our In-Game Alpha Footage!
Posted by Tatsur0 on Aug 26th, 2011
The anticipation has been building for some time since we initially announced Contagion and shared with you a teaser trailer, renders, and our dev blogs (which we hope to pick up again when we aren't spending our available time developing the game itself which is a hard task in and of itself). In fact we ran a promotion on Facebook and with the support of many ZPS, Contagion, L4D, and Zombie fans and their friends & family we released it early Thursday night proving our social network definitely deserve our attention. It is however time to share with the rest of you our early alpha in-game footage!
As promised here is Contagion. This is Alpha footage and only a teaser. I'm sure many of you are immediately picking apart the video but remember this is old footage and the textures, animations, rigs, speeds, effects, styles, decals, etc have all been updated since so enjoy and look forward to more in the future! Also to avoid any confusion this video was recorded not on the 2009 (L4D/L4D2 Engine) but on the publicly available tools and 2007 Engine!
As usual we expect many fans or potential fans have their own ideas & suggestions for how to improve on what they see (knowing not what we've changed since or our ultimate goal) so as always we've prepared a forum thread for that specific purpose in our Ideas & Suggestions thread so please be sure to use that!

Lastly I want to say thank you to all the ZPS fans I played with over the week who showed great interest in the mod (yes we're still working on 2.3 though some of the team are working hard to help release NMRiH which from what they've shown us is thriving and I can't wait to play) as well as our commercial title Contagion. We would not be here with you guys and hope to see you signing up on the Monochrome forums as well to discuss the next step in the story of our favorite survivalists!
