We our very passionate about our work and community and from reactions from Romero's "Finally", to the cast of The Walking Dead sharing interest via tweets, as well as major editors and youtubers showing support it would seem we're not the only ones and feel lucky to have reached so many.
Apparently we reached an entire city that shares our passion for Contagion when a member of the ZombieFest commity in Lakeland, Florida USA introduced themselves and their event and asked if we would be interested in using their Studio (center of the Event), setup our game at the Venue, and be their headline Sponsor as they work towards obtaining the Guinness World Record for having the most "Zombies" in one location which is looking promising with the numbers looking to beat out those in Jersey from last year.
Apparently the City from the Mayors Office to the Police Department (running security) are fans of Contagion which blew our minds and really wanted us to participate when our name came popping up for a Game Center. We've also got Universal Studio's painting people up as Zombies, ZombieFest & Contagion Digital Billboards, Signs on Buses, and more all over Florida (if you're out there, keep your eyes peeled!).
All of Downtown Lakeland is participating and we're honored to be a part of it. They're even preparing a Cake (4'x3') for us and Most everyone from the team will be there as well a possible Special Guest! We'll also be doing a popular Talk Show (has been hinted there may be more than one) aired during Prime Time which we'll release more information regarding as we learn more but we do know we're recording on the 10th (so we'll be around from Oct 9th - Oct 14th with our Families but remember jet lag, 4am wake up for prep, and more. Doubt we'll need the make-up to pull off a decent zombie).
We're all very excited for the event but this has also locked us down in sorting out updates, hitting deadlines, and preparing the upcoming free DLC!
We haven't forgotten our Official Weekly WebComic (SickJoe is just that. Sick and we love it! He'll also be attending ZombieFest for fans of his work and may want to learn more about the Future of Monochrome LLC) and so here is our latest update which was unfortunately delayed due to our Weekend promo that is now over and our bandwidth being torn to shreds by the Steam Community heh.
Official Contagion Comic - Chapter 3 :: Week 9
We're looking into releasing our WebComic in a manageable format as well as our OST which will include our music from the game as well as our cinematic trailer! More surprises on the way and soon!
We really want to meet up with our Fans in Florida so if you can be there on October 11th it'll be hard to miss us. Come on in and say hi, sit down at one of numerous computers and play Contagion! Looking to have some swag and signings of our Comic and more!
If you're new to Contagion but in the area and/or a Zombie enthusiast we still hope to see you there!
