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.
We finally reveal our new Eugene character model as well as a new weapon, new site, and discuss recruiting testers as well as a tease in regards to showing off some in-game footage.

When we started Contagion the idea was to take Eugene and Marcus 2 creations of mine from ZPS and tell their story. This time through Sam our concept artist used the references and descriptions provided and hit the mark perfectly. Josh was then given the task of creating the foundation of our game the character models that would be Eugene and Marcus. Not long ago we revealed Marcus but now it's time to give you Eugene. Together they represent the type of friends and human beings who could potentially survive the coming horror-
We're also excited to show of another weapon in our arsenal the Sig Pro SP2340 pistol-
While the site has been up and running for testing purposes and tweaking for the last few weeks for those who haven't stumbled upon it yet check out our new website thanks to Tom our Webmaster & PR wiz-
Contagion-Fans.com has also run another Interview this time running Ulrich our Lead Sound Engineer through some questions.
Contagion-Fans.com wrote:JoeH04: What type of sounds do you think is the most fun to work with?
Ulrich: In my opinion it's the sum of different sounds which create a soundscape. A sound itself can be interesting, but it really comes to life when you script it with other sounds and put properties like pitch, random placement and level to them.
