Contagion is a game developed by indie game developers Monochrome LLC. The game hit the Steam store in 2013 as an early release title and was later completed in 2014. The game had a lot of success with the indie community and established a large following. During its peak release the game had a solid 8000 players a day. Contagion has plummeted over the years only seeing around 80 – 100 players a day now. This is due to the fact that the game is over 5 years old now and many other zombie titles have since come out on PC.
Even though the game has now lost it’s fan base the game had a good lifespan and was a great game. The developers worked tireless on the game and funded much of it out of their own pocket. Although some later funds came from Kickstarter to help finish the project. Many say that this game was the successor to Zombie Panic, although some deny this notion. Arguing that Zombie Panic was it’s own game and deserves it’s own praise and identity.
The best bits about Contagion:
The game itself has 3 different game modes in which players can choose to play. Hunted is the most played game mode on Contagion and the most notable out of the 3. Consisting of up to 16 players, Hunted is a free-for-all in which the last man standing wins, players have to fight against each other in this ultimate death-match. All players start as Humans and the first zombies are AI controlled. When you die you become a zombie and it is now your task to kill the remaining Human players. Even though you have lost the game as a human you still get points while playing as a zombie. Which makes this role as important as the human player. The aim of the game is to survive as long as possible and often causes a lot of fun and panic while playing.
The second game mode is ” Escape” and players must journey through a map with certain goals. This mode can hold up to 8 players. The main aim is to survive the whole campaign and reach the end of the level, although you will come across many challenges along the way. The final game mode is “Extraction” and is like “Escape” in regards to co-operative game play. The difference is you have to explore the map area and find captured AI players. The main aim is so save all survivors to complete the round. Although Contagion has 3 game modes most players tend to stick to the competitive Death-match, which even has its own Contagion server hosting which is available form the above hosts.
Monochrome have not released any new titles since this game but they are working on a VR version. The VR version doesn’t currently have a release date, but you can find out more on the Steam store. We would expect to hear more news on this soon, so continue to check back on the site for updates.
Unturned is a great free to play game that has been a strong community favourite for years. With fun features and plenty of fun to be had with your friends. This zombie survival game will entertain you for hours. Although Unturned takes a much more laid back approach to the zombie genres unlike Contagion. It certainly fulfils any zombie hunting needs you may have.
The game is free to play for life but players can upgrade to the gold edition of the game.For a small fee players will then have access to special weapons and skins and this money goes to the developer allowing him to continue working on the project.
Left 4 Dead 2 continues to be a favourite among the competitive multiplayer community. The game features a intense game mode that matches you up in teams of 4. One team plays as the zombies and the other team play as the survivors. Teams take in turns switching roles as they progress through the campaign. After each round players will score points depending on how many survivors make it to the safe room. So it’s up to the zombie team to try and stop them from completing the round.
At the end of the game the total points are accumulated and the team with the highest points wins. Left 4 Dead 2 games can take up to two hours to play.
