App description: Unleash a virus of your own creation upon the entire world in VIRAL. Creating your virus by spending points on various attributes, you will then be able to infect a region of your choosing before watching your virus spread. You will then cultivate it as it spreads to increase the rate of infection and improve your chances of taking hold in new countries.

Unleash a virus of your own creation upon the entire world in VIRAL. Creating your virus by spending points on various attributes, you will then be able to infect a region of your choosing before watching your virus spread, cultivating it as it spreads to increase the rate of infection and improve your chances of taking hold in new countries.

In game, tapping a country will bring up a series of statistics that will aid you in the development of your virus. If you are having trouble infecting Russia because its too cold, perhaps you should upgrade the virus cold resistance? Or If America is able to repel your infection, perhaps it is down to a high healthcare level, and as such you should upgrade your immune system attack strength to overload the health service...?

In VIRAL it is not the upgrades you choose, but in what order you choose them, that matters. Not upgrading your Heat resistance at the right time may make gaining a good infection in a hot country difficult, and by the time you can afford to upgrade your Heat resistance, that hot country may have shut down its ports, disabling your ability to Infect!

Viral features:
  • A challenging, ingenuity-led approach to gameplay, with players required to use their common sense to best solve problems. If a country has too robust an attribute, it is up to the player to work out how best to evolve their virus to combat that particular country.
  • Addictive gameplay
  • An innovative concept, expanded and redefined in 3D

No gameplay video as yet, but a "lite" version of the game has been submitted and should be available in the next couple of days
