Posted by on

During this past week we've had a few announcements that we are happy to share with you today! We've been quite busy working on getting Contagion up to par and while we've shared a few screenshots here and there we haven't talked about much else behind the scenes.


Contagion's Official Steam Shop & Group!

Many have been wondering when Contagion will be available on steam and while the game isn't on sale yet we are happy to announce you will be able to see Contagion coming to you this Fall! With our Contagion Steam Shop setup we also have our Official Steam Group which you can follow for all the latest updates and news about Contagion! This also includes our official Steam community Hub linked to the group.


Contagion & Pax 10

Although we won't be officially attending PAX again this year as the lint in our pockets wasn't convincing enough, we have entered Contagion in the PAX 10 competition. Which is a competition for indies to win a chance to showcase their game at this years PAX Prime. So that means, should we win, we will receive a kiosk to demo the game. We have our fingers crossed!



Zombie Panic: Source & SteamPipe

Now in other Monochrome news, the Zombie Panic: Source Steam page will be getting a facelift soon as well as we transition to Steam's new content management system, "SteamPipe." This new system will allow us to roll out updates easier and include some performance benefits to players.

Benefits include:

  • Faster and smoother downloads
  • Faster game boot times and map load times
  • Smoother dedicated server distribution and update rollover

More info soon as we convert over to the new system.


Aurora Estates Screenshots!

If you've missed them we've posted a few new screenshots the past couple weeks from one of Contagion's maps "Aurora". There will be plenty more to come! Here's a small recap:

maps need more blood, small lights, color correction, some particles flyin...etc. its too "stock" looking.

Kinda agree. While I am loving the game, some parts just look...odd.

Granted, it's not due to release for quite awhile yet, but just the quality is inconsistent. Some parts look so amazing I have to double check them.

Then I see some that look worse than Stock HL2.

Is there going to be local or split screen support on here- it states there is local/split screen support on steam as it states "local co-op" and "play offline and online with friends" THANKS, looks good ^^

There was a mixup and splitscreen is not something we currently support but after someone else (or you on Steam Discussion) brought it up we are looking into the possiblity while also looking to fix tags in the meantime.
