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.

Josh Lennen shows off some of the modular head setup for Contagion and through a timelapse video gives viewers a look at the process.

Posted by Tatsur0 on Mar 30th, 2012

Once GDC ended, we took some time to gather our bearings and review all the feedback we received. All we can really say at this point is that big things will be happening that could make a significant impact on Contagion. Now that we know where we stand and know what we need to do to improve, we're back in business with more determination than ever!

Today we're going to give you a sneak peek into a little zombie creation! Many may be wondering what kinds of zombies you'll encounter while playing Contagion. While we're not ready to reveal everything we have in store, we do want to show you what a few may look like. The timelapse video will reveal a little workflow sculpting for one of the many zombies you'll annihilate along the way!


We hope you enjoy watching the sculpting video!
Don't forget to follow us through any of our social networks as updates will be ramping up and new media to be revealed soon.

Now when you say modular does that mean it will generate random zombie looks each time you play?

looks a bit tame ;D
Also wouldn't it be better to have full destructive layers, with flesh and muscles, and blend them together instead of having 3 detailed ones ? Unless you really are going for speed,and dont want to make every zombie look unique.
Still like your use of clay brush, like the fact you throw in forms without smoothing or fixing often

This video was meant to be informative and not represent the actual full work-flow and detail that does go into our modular zombies so I hope that alleviates any concerns.
