The game is an action-puzzler. The puzzle comes from rearrange circuits to spread the virus. The action comes from dodging anti-virus drones while doing it. It’s one of the few puzzle games out there where you can play co-operatively (with up to 3 friends). But if you tire of working together, there is a battle mode where you can take on your friends to see who is the supreme virus.

STORY
Dr X brought the world the city of Tomorrow: with robot dogs, and houses that clean themselves. MegaTech promptly fired him as soon as the last chrome brick was laid. But Dr X has one final invention, a little virus named Tom. Help this little gremlin bring the city of Tomorrow back to the Stone Age by causing absolute mayhem throughout the city.

Looking very cool. However, I really hope that despite its XNA origins, I look forward to Linux support in the future. Will Desura purchases have access to this as well as the Steam key etc... compared to HumbleStore?

I *believe* with Desura you get all the platform versions of the game when you buy it, but not a Steam key. I think you can get a Steam Key, but then you don't get the Desura version (it's an either OR). That probably prevents people form getting 2 versions of the game to then turn around and sell?

Humble Store supports Steam Key and standalone versions, not sure about Desura Keys.

All that and I can't *guarantee* the Linux/Mac version till we sell the PC version (we're out of savings). But I'm pretty sure we can swing it :)

Most likely never considering it was made using XNA. Rather vexing really...

Apparently it's possible to port XNA games to other platforms other than Windows with MonoXNA, so perhaps a Linux version is in the works.

Yep. We looked into using MonoGame and found that might be a viable option. We're going to wait till we launch the Windows version so we have a more stable codebase before we port (and hopefully some money to do said port).

Assuming all goes well we'd put the Linux & Mac versions up on Desura once they were ready. Maybe even use Alpha Funding again to help us get them ready for primetime.
