These last 2 months have been some of the busiest two months I've ever had to endure and for those that know me know that's quite an achievement. The same could be said for the rest of the team and it shows in our latest Contagion Alpha Game-play Video.
As I know the word "Alpha" may mean different things to viewers we'd like to describe what's being shown and what we've yet to reveal.
What you see-
- New atmospheric shaders, lighting, and custom particle effects
- New weapons and items in-game and some of their uses
- Our multi-player in action with player controlled survivors and zombies as well as AI
- and much more...
What you don't-
- Our new rigging and animations
- Updated AI
- Weapon, Ammo, Item, and AI spawning system that can be influenced as the game is played
- Each round on the same map is hardly the same
- and much more...
We hope you keep this in mind as we have a lot going on we're not ready to show the public and this video does not represent the current state of the game. But we would very much like to share our new Contagion-Game.com site re-design. We're still working on it but it's ready for public view so check it out!
While there is much we wish to keep to ourselves for the moment there will be a few exceptions because as promised we are now accepting applications for our first round of play-testers!
For those of you interested in being a Contagion play-tester please visit the following thread for more information - Contagion - PT Application Thread
While we would have liked to have paid more attention to this years "Indie of the Year 2011 Awards", we had an important deadline to meet and our team is now enjoying their Holidays (when they're not sneaking back in to finish up a piece) but there are still 2 days left to vote for the final voting phase!
