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

As promised we've released our much anticipated Zombie Panic: Source Biotec Remake (Escape & Hunted Game-Modes), Stone Creek (Escape Game-Mode but in many ways Survival gameplay) the most popular Workshop map now in our Official rotation, our new Melee System that is not only much more user friendly but now with bladed weapons can more than cut off limbs but now decapitate zombies as well!

Of course we updated all existing maps with improvements, optimization, bug fixes, and exploits being removed.

Here is a look at these new maps!

Once again seek out the experimental vaccine that may hold the key humanities very survival! But it would seem that Biotec security was unable to either handle the horde invading... or was it from within?

Tracking, unlike a large minority of the community I think it's great when mod teams go professional (although I prefer it when they don't do it half way through development on their mods, so god job on not doing that) and think it's a travesty there aren't more commercially released games using the source engine.

Looking forward to future updates, I'm sure it'll be impressive.

Its very odd but i tend to prefer my indie games on engines other than source. I reckon its probably that im so used to mods that indie games need serious work to lure me. Regardless as that does not have much to do with what is going on with your game but I will say it would be quite nice to see some more media or a bit more of a description. As for the "Its been done before" comments, I still feel that there is room to have it done right! Left 4 dead franchise, while being excellent for arcade style pick me up and play gaming seemed to lack a lot of substance for me after several play throughs. Also i was dissapointed when they changed the free roam idea from beta to the set course mapping we see in game today. Killing floor was close to the mark but lacked differential gaming from my perspective as sometimes it would be great to have a puzzle mixed in with the killing or some sort of objective. Anyway this may just seem like a pile of steamy toss or it may be helpful. Either way i look forward to watching you guys progress.

Appreciate the comments and agree that I don't feel as we've reached the right mix for the genre/theme just yet. As for Source if the very quiet rumor mill is right should give players renewed interest in the Engine. There were other factors when we decided to remain on the Source Engine as well. I hope we can impress and entertain you and all our fans. As for content, we're working on a proper announcement as this first one was just to set the profile.

Contagion is an Indie title and will be made available for purchase on release but will not cost an arm and a leg. It is definitely not a mod and is being developed by experienced industry professionals. Always appreciate the support :)

Even if it is early acces it has good balanced gameplay elements for casual gamer but I would say for a better long term experience there should be more maps (maybe community maps with HammerEditor I would create one ;) ) and a mode in which if you die you can´t respawn just if somebody use a defibrillator(or something like that) so it would be somekind of a Hardcore mode.
