The late 20th century, the birth of the new millennium. The cities of the west are heaving, over-populated, behemoths. Population growth has increased at an exponential rate and mass immigration from across the globe has already seen medical institutions put down a series of viral outbreaks. Economic boom has turned these hotbeds of civilization into giant ant-like colonies where the extremely wealthy live in penthouse suites amoung the clouds while the workers swarm the streets going about their everyday toil. Perfect conditions one might say, for the worst epidemic to hit since Spanish Flu!

It is the millennium year and the world is pregnant with expectation. The national and local government congratulate themselves on a job well done and somewhere in the city, in an incident room of a local hospital, a single patient is attended to with worsening conditions. No one recalls whether vector one was male or female, young or old, but in that single incident, that one twist of fate that lead them to that emergency department, a cycle of infection began that within a month would see a city disappear from the map.

1,120 days have passed since then. Where once there might have been bitter skirmishes along the walls of the quarantine zone between those trapped inside and the quarantine enforcers, now there is a stoic silence. Yet those whose life or circumstance still takes them as close as they dare to the fence lined edge of The Urban Waste say they still see movement in the shadows and hear the patter of gunfire somewhere out there. Most government bodies quash these rumors. They say that The Urban Waste is nought but a mass grave; but should these rumors be true, then there must be some with at least a passing immunity to the virus and in that there is hope. The battle for survival is being fought.


Imagine a game where everything is possible. Where the setting is as real as your own backyard, in a system that has literally thousands of creation combinations and ultimate freedom to let your imagination loose. Let that sink in for a moment, because that game is Contamination. 

We call it ‘Open World’ gaming and it’s what Contamination is all about. It’s not a new idea though. The concept of ‘Open World’ or ‘Sandbox’ gaming has been hot in the world of computer and console games for a while. In Contamination this starts with our perk and flaw system during crew creation, the lack of limitation as to how you can use your crews actions, and the realism of the world setting. Contamination is a different breed of tabletop game and its time you experienced it for yourself.


‘The legendary ‘Urban Waste’ could be anywhere, in any city in the world so where will you set yours? In Open World the game belongs to you. Explore the abandoned shopping malls, schools, prisons, hotels, and more. The ‘Urban Waste Proper’ is the perfect place to start your adventures at first but what lies beyond? Contamination allows you to mod your games and let your imagination run riot in an ever expanding setting.


There are 1,296 different combinations to your crew’s character with the Perk and Flaw system. Choose something that reflects your desired theme or let the dice decide for you and learn their story as you play. A multitude of weapons and items gives you even greater diversity. Will you be lead by local celebrities, forever looking for a lost loved one, or suffer from bouts of kleptomaniacy?


Not content with the options available? Create something new! Now there really is a weapon for every occasion no matter the setting.  The modding generator allows you to create almost anything you can imagine and generate the price tag  to go with. So if you find yourself itching for some explosive rounds, or simply need an enhanced flash-bang to disorientate your opponents, it’s only your imagination that can hold you back.


No matter the number of your gaming friends or whether you haven’t met any friendly dice fellows, solo-play or multiplayer offer a wealth of ways to enjoy the whole gaming experience. Purge a section of The Urban Waste and call it your home, engage in a turf war between your friends, or mix the two to your hearts content.
