It's not about the money it's about doing what we love (though being able to keep doing it as our lives get more complicate with family and such isn't bad heh).

Contagion may be Full Released but we have our budget set aside to continue working on the game for a good long time while including our Free DLC (New characters, weapons, maps, and game-modes). This may or may not help -

Animations are limited by the current system but we're working on a more advanced layer system for the 1000+ Player/AI Survivor and Zombie animations that we will continue to add in with our updates like the SDK for our modders this Sunday. We couldn't hide behind "Early Access" forever and are use to ppl ignoring the AAA bugs and forgetting we don't have their numbers or budget. Still I understand your view point and promise you won't feel that way for long. We're quite dedicated.

Sorry you feel that way. It helps to look into games before purchasing them so you don't make false assumptions and end up disappointed. I recommend the following to research-

"Early Access" (Open Beta and not the final product)

Contagion Escape Mode (Nothing is pointless and if you wanted epic story telling we're sorry we left it up to players and randomness to do the job for us which actually required more effort)

Anything Contagion related before Winter Sale :)

Tatsur0 Aug 26 2013, 5:55am replied:

I'm sorry you feel that way.

The animations were done in a large mocap studio with professional actors. The game-play is a bit higher paced, nothing like L4D and I'm not sure how AI zombies = NMRiH clone. I can say that those from NMRiH that have played it feel differently than you.

Rather than defend the teaser I can only hope you'll be patient enough to see what the game is about and how it really looks when we release our full trailer which was the point of the teaser to highlight.

There is no game like Contagion, we're confident that many will enjoy it and we hope to scratch that itch. But in the end we'll have to wait and see.

Thank you for the compliments, they're greatly appreciated.

For me it's always been about the setting and a good modern day post apocalyptic setting has a good number of cars and with each environment taking place at a different point in time we get to do a lot of fun stuff with them. The time and work that goes into these assets make them something I love to share.

Still we thought we should share some of the MoCap & SFM this week to show that's not all we're working on. The game is coming along fantastically and we've got a lot of surprises to share throughout December and into the new year.

Actually piracy shows your interest in the game and is misleading. Not purchasing the game however makes a clear point that you're not interested in buying their game. Many "pirates" do so to test the water before jumping in and purchasing a game and most companies while trying to fight back (which leads to the **** everyone's bitching about) are still advised whether rightly so or not that piracy suggests more people are likely to buy their games. You're just using an old excuse that doesn't hold much weight.

If you've ever read any of those agreements you click "Agree" to you'd know you're not buying the content but access to interact and view it. No ones rights are being taken. Pirating is only making things even more difficult for users so you're basically saying you support creating the problems that led to your support in the first place. Also, people don't pirate for the reasons you stated they pirate because it's easy, free, and will use any excuse they can. I'm not saying the guys behind the game are angels but there are a lot of innocent developers and gamers getting screwed over by those you support.

Everyone stating piracy is ok due to the constraints - piracy leads to piracy. I mean come on :P You guys gotta stop pretending to be victims when it's really the actions of pirates who are creating the problems. If your were to "borrow" the game for a demo, find you like it.

You can't justify piracy. The companies have money but you're hurting developers and gamers. You are a bigger problem then these companies. End this isn't the Robin Hood system. If you're selfishly stealing for yourself. It's not food, water, or shelter. It's someones work and entertainment. It'd be like stealing your neighbors entertainment system because he can afford it and doesn't use it enough in your opinion. But because it's digital we ignore that and pretend we're not hurting others or ourselves when that's exactly what pirates are doing.

People seem to forget that you're hurting hard working developers along with the HATED Studio/Publisher. It's immature and it's still ******* theft. No excuse for that.

And you're wrong about piracy. We developers care, long time gamers who have seen the damage it's caused care, and people who aren't sticking their fingers in their ears and TROLOLOLOLOLOLing care.

So you're saying that developers don't need to get paid? That Blizzard should make free games? I'm not saying I agree with their decisions being a modder for 15 years and not a fan of selling items for $ (which was done long before now in D1 and 2) which has gradually become acceptable by the new generation of gamers (Miss the days when you had to earn it instead of parents buying it for you) heh. I'm always online so the online requirement isn't hurting me but I still agree that it's something easily disliked for obvious reasons. NONE of that excuses piracy. The only good excuse I've ever heard was "Wow, that was a great game, i'm definitely gonna buy it now" demo. Would prefer companies release more demos but like others I don't like to rush in eyes closed and buy a game for $50-60 heh

People up voting piracy? You've got to be pretty immature to think stealing a game is okay just because you can't "mod" it or for any reason beyond "Prefer to demo before I buy".

I'm not a huge fan of the decision but to be surprised at companies being "greedy" or rephrased as "want to make more money" is silly as that's usually the point. If you don't like it don't buy it.

Just a suggestion :) As for weekly, possibly toss together a developers blog and add some details as to the model. Remember to link to the blog bi-monthly! Hope that helps.

Was a bit confused as to whether this was an adult themed black jack game until I read even further and ignored the 3 images that were provided. Sounds somewhat like a Devil May Cry Stripper side scroller (with possible black jack?). If it's anything like metroidvania or anywhere near as awesome as Aquaria (with darker and adult oriented themes) I'm looking forward to it however with 3 images (that are a bit confusing) and very little info, it may have been a better idea to possibly wait a little longer till reveal? Either way, will track this in the hopes of an incredible MetroidVania DMC! Oh and let's hope the bun bun bunny theme is left to long ponytails and possible "Playboy" references, just personal preference it not go into the realm of Furry or annoying Japanese cuteness heh.

Took the words right out of my mouth Wills. Infinity is my pick but I worry that it's too ambitious but if it were to work as advertised then it would blow away any game to date. Xeno Clash feels more tangible and looks incredible described as Wills put it.

Good luck all!

All we've said so far is that the winner will win a shirt. Whether we approach the winner or not about selling the design will be left up to later and handled properly if so.

This is more of an announcement of our intent to offer a Limited Edition ZPS shirt and get the community who aren't level designers something to do as well.

If you boarded yourself into a room, would just mean no escape for you once the zombies break the cades. Though you can also pick up cades after placing them so long as they aren't damaged first.

Copy and Paste doesn't always work and can lead to stretching and require you to do it over. Also stacking makes baking shadows, details, normals complicated or impossible. So it's good to learn how to do it like this as well. Good tut, might be a good idea to continue with a series of UV tuts on more complicated models.

I found your interview of The Citizen to be absolutely brilliant. I've had a few too many to drink tonight but was still well entertained and will 'eventually' try "The Citizen" for no other reason than your accent and wit. I would love to have you to a video/audio review of my mod Zombie Panic: Source. Let me know :)
