Playable Alpha Demo Available!

We're pulling out all the stops to get this Kickstarter over the line.  If we haven't convinced you yet that Retrovirus is worth backing, we're hoping actually playing the game will push you over the edge.  Come play our Alpha demo:

We've also had some great press over the last couple of days.

TotalBiscuit has done a "WTF Is..." video on the Retrovirus press alpha we sent him.

PlaySF has done a thoughtful article covering our Alpha:

ShogunGamer did an interview with our game designer, Dylan, talking about the unique elements that Retrovirus brings to the FPS arena:

      Just posted the link to Facebook with a link to the demo. Fingers crossed that gets you at least a handful more pledges

      Just finished playing through the alpha demo. I loved Descent and its sequels and I am very impressed with Retrovirus. Had the same feel as Descent but with modern visuals and sound. The art in particular was awesome. I really did feel like I was flying through a computer system that had been infected by a virus. Kudos! Now we just have to get this funded!

      @hunter We're busting our butts to do it. We just need to keep spreading the word. As soon as a big guy like TotalBiscuit got his hands on the game and showed it to people we started to get momentum, so we need individual fans to help keep up the momentum by sharing it with friends :)

      I need this to come through man. I have been dying to see something like descent in a long time, and this is even better than what I wanted.

      @João: Thanks for the support! Glad you enjoyed it. There isn't much like Retrovirus out there. :)

      Here's hoping the campaign is successful.
      I tried the alpha demo, and it is a lot of fun! I kind of forgot how much fun games like these can be.
