Default Contagion Revealed!

Hey all,
I know it's been sometime since last we updated you on Zombie Panic: Source's progress and today we had plans to do just that, but because of some confusion and a bar fight it will have to wait till next weekend. I'll even toss in a video But instead of leaving you with nothing, I have some incredible news to share with you since it was our biggest fans who inspired Monochrome LLC's newest project -






Contagion is a spiritual successor to the hottest Half-Life 2 mod since 2008, Zombie Panic: Source. Eugene and Marcus, icons of the mod return to do what they do best - Survive and stomp out any undead that may cross their path. Contagion will be a story driven, atmospheric experience, throwing you into the middle of a zombie outbreak with a focus on survival. As the player you will not have the luxury of a suitcase of ammo and a trolley to carry along your weapon stash.


Contagion guarantees not to be your average zombie game and will pit you against unique and terrifying enemies, new features, a variety of new weapons to choose from, and a powerful soundtrack that promises to completely immerse the player in the world we've built.








We would like to thank our incredibly loyal community for all their support and point out that it was because of a large number of enthusiastic ZP:S players who asked us to work on a Single Player version that inspired us to move forward with this project. We would also like to thank Valve, who've shown both mod and indie developers a generous amount of support and it is with our trust in them and their ever changing engine that we'll be developing Contagion on the Source Engine. We're also excited to announce that we will be looking for playtesters to test our existing alpha build soon.

We're sure you have many questions to ask or you are interested in learning more so please visit our forums -here-

Right away I would like to point out that there are 2 separate teams working on both ZPS and Contagion. ZPS is being worked on for free and both Erik (KillahMo) and I are still working on ZPS while another team under NDA and CA are working on Contagion. ZPS is not dead

Loving it! Looks good, guns seem more realistic as well with the zombies.

Contagion is an indie game being developed for the source engine. I've been told to think of it as the next step for zps (one in which you pay for).

I for one can not wait for its release and am eagerly awaiting a pre order button. (hope its on steam or desura)

I don't like knowing that my fiance's dog is going to become a part of the zombie apocalypse.

i think i'll reply to this here seen as the zps thread has more activity than the monochrome forum:

Looks cool, very nice work.

However i have to ask, will it actually look that good in game? or will the quality be lowered for performance reasons or whatever.

This is looking very slick, very nice.

Is it solely single player or single player + multiplayer?
