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.

Post news Report content RSS feed Monochrome - Going to GDC 2012!

We've been quite busy since our last update and for good reason. Not only has development of Contagion been moving steadily ahead but we're ready to announce that we will be attending GDC 2012 as well as information on Valve and more!

Posted by on


We've been a bit quite yet hinted at a surprise in the works. Monochrome LLC will be attending GDC 2012 in San Francisco (March 5th ~ 9th) and will be located at GDC Play Kiosk #31 if you'd like to grab some swag and meet some of the developers as well as some other surprises!

Not only that but we're currently working with Valve in regards to moving Contagion over to the new Engine which will benefit all. We've already received quite a lot of attention just being listed at GDC and hope to make many more waves the rest of the year. We've spoken with representatives from PAX Prime as well as Tokyo Game Show so expect much more.

For now here are some in-game screenshots and an ambient track we use in-game to set the mood apart from our dynamic tracks.

I would like to mention we are still in Alpha and a number of working features are not present in the screens such as Modular zombies and more-

i have to agree, there are way to many zombie shooters today,
but, the development of this game started quit long ago, when there
weren't that many of them yet.

But, that is not why i comment. i read above;
"...we're currently working with Valve in regards to moving Contagion over to the new Engine which will benefit all. "

New ENGINE??????
are we talking about a HL3 engine???????

could be referring to Source 2009 which currently powers TF2, which does not have an SDK as of yet (which makes modding using it a pain)

No, they're talking about Source 2.

Portal 2 & Dear Esther used it.

Source 1.5 sounds more like it :)

I'd also love to see some official info about your Source 2

nope sorry i cant find it , give me a link , please

Thinkwithportals.com click DOWN on the bottom apge says powered by source , i dont see a 2 there and when you click it you get the source 1 page :)

From where you get your info you obviously are a bit too naive to believe others on just words .

Hi , I searched long and hard and did not find ANYTHING about either Portal 2 or Dear Esther of using source " 2 " .
You seem to be the only one saying this . Let me try it : Half Life 3 will use Source Engine 3.23c dx12 beta .

Still Source 1 ... Unreal Engine 3 is being updated all the time and it's still Unreal Engine 3 . We can't be going on the net giving names to each update and call it 2 or 3 just ebcause it's updated .

Nah, it's UT 3.5, like how UT2.5 became popular.

Anyways, all I remember is Gaben calling it Source 2 during a speech at one of the GDCs.
