Our Kickstarter is live! We feel it's finally time to release Contagion out on the world but we need your help! Check out our new trailer and donate if you can, if not please spread the word since every little bit helps!

Contagion has been developed with money solely out of our own pockets up to this point. While it'd be nice to reach the finish line doing the same, we've run into some costs which would be a challenge without the support of our Fans. It is our hope that rather than us crossing the line alone, we instead cross it together.

Thank you once again from all of the Monochrome team for your support and hope to see you in game in the future!

You guys are trying way to hard. Sneaking? I mean really. And if you dare look someone in the eyes and say that the animations don't look robotic you have lost touch with reality.

The thing that threw me off completely is how the dev footage, witch is supposed to be shot in perfect conditions, lags and skips all the time. You have never actually shown a larger horde of zombies on screen so those probably lag or behave silly.


Also having seen some actual gameplay I gladly take back what I said about the game looking nice. I know its Source but really every level looks flat and boring.

Sure you can blame this on beta or alpha. But I wouldn't give money for something in this state.

It isn't about graphics :) and for source engine I think it still looks nice, look at other games using source engine. This looks better.

I dont get it as i was watching it I was thinking the source engine has actually held up quite well, unless you compare it to uber-graphics, look at my kick *** gaming computer, types of games.

I don't see how sneaking is trying too hard? It works fantastic in our Hunted gamemode, maybe not in the Extraction mode were the houses are being swarmed. And I don't see how the animations are even related to that but yeah, they are robotic, they are also not the ones we recorded in our motion capture studio a while back. They will be in before the release, so we kinda can blame that on beta stage.

And the "dev footage" is recorded from demo files, hence the slightly glitchy nature, game doesn't lag or skip, there are people showing livestreams of the game full of zombie hordes and no strange lag.

And if you HAD actually seen game play, then some of your points would be moot, no random lag skips in the animations on there and I've seen plenty of people use sneaking to bypass zombies in the Hunted game mode, if you shoot, you give-away your position. Simple.

But yeha, I'm sorry that the levels look flat and boring to you, and I'm sorry that clearly graphics are absolutely everything for you.

I don't think his concerns were unreasonable, I just think he went about explaining it in a rude manor. When I first watch the new trailer, the animations bothered me just as much. Its a relief to hear that its already fixed and working properly. The hordes also did look a "bit" glitchy in the video, but you said that was also fixed. Hopefully the game will all come together nicely. Keep it up.

You are more than welcome to your opinions. I hope you find a title that interests you. I do apologize that the .dem files give the impression that's lag and not the transition in recording. Best of luck :)

Good luck on the kickstarter! Your video looks really polished and using a professional voice actor was a nice touch.
