Our Programmer and Animator have made their way through Seattle and the UK where we received 2 free copies of Valve's SteamBox, OS, and Gamepad. We met up with the guys from NMRiH, Dead Linger, Polycount, and more! It was an exciting and informative experience and Dec awkwardly waved from a Subway at Gabe Newell. Probably freaked the poor man out.
Not only was Steam Dev Days a success and a lot of fun but our trip to Europe and a much improved larger MoCap studio got us 1,000+ Motion Capture animations to replace all existing PLayer Survivor/Zombie, NPC Survivor/Zombie, and Misc animations. Much more than we could have hoped for with significant improvements to the quality of the recordings.
We still have a lot of surprises in store for everyone especially as we move closer to a Full Release. We also have some good news on the Zombie Panic front. Both Riley & NeoAssassin's hard work has paid off with Valve sorting out our Server issues that came out of nowhere. With our forums up and working again please be sure to let us know if you're still running into issues. Now....

and will pass out one or more free copies of Contagion during the Stream!
We would also like to point out that one of the reasons we post these updates on both our Contagion and ZPS groups (a few have shown concern) is because we still have big plans for ZPS but don't have the free time to sort them out but keeping involved in both has made it easier for myself to continue to focus on both great games and be ready for the love and attention Zombie Panic: Source deserves!
