Hello!

These applications (steamservice.exe and abstractismlauncher.exe) are game launchers, that Abstractism need to drop items.

You can launch game without it and you will have no antivirus popup. Just go to the Abstractism folder (*Your Steam Directory*\steamapps\common\Abstractism) and run Abstractism.exe. Game now will be started without Steam services.

Abstractism launcher is made on Clickteam Fusion 2.5 and it is a common issue for this engine. We are currently trying hard to sign applications and optimize its code.

Sorry for the miscommunication!

Like wise, cos thousands of games and this has only happened once before.
FunkeymonkeyTTR Jul 26, 2018 @ 10:16am 
its happened on other games before but normally at launch when the game is brand new and most of the time only by 1 virus scanner company, but this is totally out of the blue and has been picked up by 2 totally different softwares... and if the dev doesn't even care enough to reply to anyone on this forum (like the 10+ people who cant even run the game) then to me its clear he only cares about getting money from this game so infecting people with some pretty nasty virus software doesnt seem that far fetched to me

A developer of this app has indicated that this post answers the original topic.

DEV is also deleting all posts from the discussions that expose this trash game for what it is. A crypto-currency miner. This is not the action of an honest game dev with nothing to hide. Don't buy this game, if you did refund it and report it to steam. If you can't refund it report it to steam anyway. If this game gets removed from the store you may be eligible for a refund when it happens.

Cause its a virus, thats why.

This game is a crptominer and the devs are involved in a trading scam. Uninstall and flag this game, this violates Steam's rules on so many levels

If it's a common issue with Clickteam Fusion 2.5, why don't other clickteam fusion games have a virus alert?

Sounds to me like you're the issue, not the engine.
