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.

Friends, I just added the beta trailer to the Retrovirus Desura video page in place of the much older alpha trailer. Enjoy :)

I checked it out but my graphics card really didn't want to cooperate. It's an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650. (WIth the most recent drivers). It won't run STO, either. I get odd artifacts - which drives me bananas. Have you got any ideas? Anyone else had a similar issue?

As soon as I read "Descent-inspired" this game instantly gained my respect. Descent was a masterpiece, and this game looks like it's going in the right direction. I cant wait to try it out!

I can't understand why this game didn't reach the funding goal on Kickstarter. It's nice to see it here on Desura. As backer on Kickstarter, it was an instantbuy for me. I'll try the beta later this day.
