Most definitely. You will be sent a Steam key which once activated will be linked to your steam account as a full purchased copy of Contagion.Last updated:
Yes! That was a typo we missed. You will receive all previous tiers if you buy the $25 dollar tier.
It should read like this:
"THE WALL OF FAME: All previous Tiers + Have your name forever be listed in the Contagion Credits proudly showing your dedication to the project."Last updated:
It should be "all previous non-limited Tiers" that was a typo we missed. You will receive all previous non-limited tiers if you buy either of those tiers.
They should read like this:
THE MISSING PERSONS: All previous non-limited tiers + Have your picture plastered on a missing persons poster in-game.
THE WANTED: All previous non-limited Tiers + Have your picture plastered on a wanted poster in-game.Last updated:
No. We understand not all pledgers are located in the US and may want to select another location for their server. If we reach our goal and after Kickstarter ends on the 13th we will have to wait about a week for Credit Card charges to be cleared.
We will then contact you and find schedule a time to setup your package. We will discuss a number of options so that we can properly meet your expectations to the best of our abilities including Server location.Last updated:
Oh definitely not!!! Our Character artist will work with you to model, sculpt, bake, and texture a zombie that looks just like you! Or slightly modified if you prefer. This includes clothing, accessories, etc. You will be a unique zombie among our modular zombies that stands out. Forever a part of Contagion!
We will perform unique motion capture animations and a special rig to your character and if you wish use your moans (edited in our Studio in Germany to fit) to make it truly yours.Last updated:
Our Official Steam release is October 25th, 2013 with Early Access at the cost of $15
For those who pledged $15 or more will receive their game and previous tiers (unlike buying off Steam) as soon as the Kickstarter funds are cleared which is some time before October 25th giving you a head start.
Later this year when Early Access is complete the full price of Contagion will be $20 per user or $60 for the 4 Pack
(After Early Access the keys will still work as this is considered a full game purchase)Last updated:
Most definitely. We signed our agreements quite a long time ago and you can find our Store Page at - http://store.steampowered.com/app/238430/

Kickstarter uses Amazon Payments because it allows them to mark charges to be charged at a later date if a project is successful or if it isn't then release it so no one is charged.
PayPal cannot do this and so does not meet the requirements needed to handle a KS project. They are also not currently built to handle crowd-funding which is something they are looking into.
Until this changes PayPal payments cannot be paid directly to KS making it difficult to use for KS project funding. We are currently researching the many ways others have done it and so far many of them have cost time and money and don't fit our current schedule. We are still looking and have a few ideas we're bouncing around so it's not exactly a dead option at the moment.
THAT SAID!!! There are other options in the form of Pre-paid Visa/MasterCard's or Virtual Credit Cards (listed at the top of the page). Can even set yourself up with a PayPal Prepaid Card!Last updated:
Our stretch goals were put in place to help us achieve our goals faster as it's all coming out of pocket and what we're able to earn from sales knowing that we couldn't afford high end Marketing and PR.
$75k - With this we can afford to purchase the 3rd party license bundles we'd require to begin work on Mac & Linux now rather than much later. It's pretty straight forward, we don't have the money in the bank to do it right now and paying developers for their hard work in creating Contagion must be a priority (If we reach the Stretch goal the licenses will be paid for immediately).
$100k - You might be asking "Why are we paying for free DLC?" our plan is to provide free content and avoid DLC packs that cost you money which has grown into a more accepted trend. $25k more will not cover the cost of our planned New Game-Mode (Flatline), 2 New Maps, 4 New Characters, and 4 New Weapons but it will allow us to put the right people on it sooner and get it out there faster.
$125k - Same as before we have another Game-Mode (Cruise), 2 New Maps, 4 New Characters, and 4 New Weapons which helps us finish up our plans for a total of 16 unique characters (may be seeing old faces from Zombie Panic), Game-Modes, and more. It again does not cover the costs but helps us to get it done sooner without hurting quality.
$150k - Why this stretch goal? We've been releasing free content for Zombie Panic: Source for 6 years. We want to do the same with Contagion but that requires paying developers. I can't help saying that this will definitely not cover 3months let alone 6 years but it does help us commit our money and whatever we earn from Kickstarter in doing so. It also helps with the buffer after Kickstarter & Amazon take their cuts of 5% and 3% from the entirety of our final amount pledged after charges have cleared. Part of this Includes additional support for peripherals and more like Oculus Rift, Steam Box, and more. We are going to work towards all these goals either way but there is no denying that we as a start-up could use a hand.
$250k - We're eager to put Contagion on consoles but this is quite expensive. To even get the certifications needed (not going into development costs, ratings, Marketing, and PR on a whole new level) this amount wouldn't cover it. We're asking for help where both the community and ourselves can put our money together to get it done.
Those who think we're greedy even asking for $50k at this point should really do the research. We've already spent our family savings, just make it by with a second full time job to pay our way this far, and have not wasted a dime of it. If it's still confusing feel free to contact us or choose not to pledge. We won't be offended and for those that support us through videos, sharing links, pledging. We thank you for your understanding!Last updated:
Only for international shipping yes. Please review your rewards when making a pledge outside the US.Last updated:
With 5 days left we wanted a super discounted pack that clans and/or friends could pitch in together for a number of limited tiers you'd have to purchase separately otherwise to ready yourself for Contagion!
We're very happy having hit our goal and wanted to do something special thus the savings which is also seen with international shipping costs.Last updated:
