Contagion is the fantastic looking co-op zombie survival FPS game that was delayed for Linux. It looks like that delay may be coming to an end.

@XylemonGethyn should have an update end of month!

Contagion takes place in a fictional world where the original Roanoke Colony thrived up until now. A contagion of unknown origins has infected the locals turning them into a mindless horde of flesh eating zombies. It is up to the remaining survivors to escape, extract, or hunt one another if they are to survive the horrors they now face. Contagion isn't your average Zombie Shooter but instead takes a more realistic and different approach to the popular genre with unique characters, environments, weapons, items, and a built in system that makes every round completely unpredictable with resources, objectives, and paths ever changing.

The game sounds like Left 4 Dead on steroids with a bigger arsenal, randomised objectives and more. It even uses the Source game engine.

Considering that this game has full game-pad support I can't wait to kick back with a cold one and blow the crap out of zombies. Article taken from

It sounds like they'll have information about the port at the end of the month. Not the port itself. Try not to get your hopes up about it coming soon.

Unless you're one of those people that get excited about news for impending news. In which case, go nuts.

Indeed, try not to get too excited it may only be an updated roadmap for Linux.
