Next live event and current progress
  • We are testing some of the suggestions which we got from players. If we find that they add to the overall experience we will keep them.
  • We are also working on solving problems with some graphics cards. (No viruses after starting the game)
  • On gameplay side we are working on the game modes. An early interface is already implemented. The actual modes will come next.
  • Last but not least the AI is up and running. The next steps here are to improve the AI and to implement different behaviors.

    An updated version of the demo with some bug fixes and improvements is in the pipeline. As soon as it is ready we will inform you.

Virus X live
Description
Virus X is a local PC multiplayer game with up to four players. You take control over one of multiple virus types and try to capture all cells.

First things first: An early demo of the local multiplayer mode is available.

Virus X:
Each virus type you can play has a unique style. Additionally there are items which help you to control the game. You can place a safe zone to protect yourself or harm your opponent. You can wipeout nearly all viruses in one stroke or you can mutate the player’s possessions. But be wary of the antibodies which will kill your viruses.

The concept is simple and easy to learn but it is hard to master the full control of the massive amount of viruses you can produce. Face the challenge and develop own strategies to defeat your foes.

The currently available demo of Virus X shows the “Free for All” mode where up to four player strife to get the full domination and destroy their enemies. It also demonstrates the art style. You can control the game either by keyboard or by Xbox360 gamepad.

Goals:
  • We are planning to develop different game modes in which you can show your friends who’s the best.
  • Another coming-soon-feature is a single player mode where you can test your skills in different challenges against AI-enemies.
  • There is also a new set of virus types in development that will bring you an even greater variety of tactics to defeat your opponents.
  • We are currently developing for Windows but in a later stage we will also support Linux and Mac.

System Requirements:
  • Graphics Card with Shader Model 3.0 and a minimum screen resolution of 1024*768
  • Dual Core Processor or better
  • 20 mb of free disk space
