First Person Shooter

Average Rating


Ratings closed


Retrovirus is a Descent-inspired six-axis shooter, with levels designed to force players to think off the ground and out of the box. Its pacing is similar to classic shooters like Quake and Unreal Tournament, and agile movement is at the core of the experience. Retrovirus also features a unique arsenal of weapons that do more than just dish out damage. By scanning residual weapon effects in the world, you can create gravity wells, knock enemies around or trigger charged blasts on groups of enemies. In Retrovirus, you are the Agent of an anti-virus program fighting against a viral army that has rapidly taken over parts of your system. Called on to respond to the crisis, you must defend the system and remove the virus before it can corrupt and destroy your world. In doing so, you'll explore a surreal software environment that pieces fragments of human reality into the fabric of its own world.

They Put it in kickstarter and promised linux support as one of the goals behind the initial goal.
Turns out the engine they used is something monowindowsonly. Therefore i don't think there were entirely honest.
Soo.... i was really looking forward to have it on linux.

So stoked that this is in the latest Indie Royale! I wasn't expecting that at all. This is one good bundle.

A question to the developers, this game is still in beta yes? If so, if there any kind of estimate to a full release date?

Retrovirus has already gone 'Gold' and released on Desura, Steam, GameStop & Humble Store. Patches continue to be rolled out very frequently. We are continuing to add content and improve the game by taking in player feedback. Another cool thing is that the multiplayer/CoOp is independent of platform meaning you can play with your friends across any of those store platforms. Get in on our play nights.

But please make the game install in standard Desura folder and not onto the C: drive. This is a MUST if you have redirected the Desura folder to another drive.
Other than this the game is great!
