I’ve always considered arcade-medical-terror as something of an underpopulated genre, so I’m thrilled to see that indie developer Locomalito of L’Abbaye des Morts and Hydorah fame is, in fact, hard at work on an arcade-medical-terror game that he calls Viriax. It’s a sort of anti-shmup where you play a virus navigating a human body with randomly generated levels and… oh, just watch the trailer below.
I got all excited when I thought that the doctors in the video were actually Locomalito and his friends, then disappointed when it turned out to be (I think) stock footage of doctors. Such is my craving for human connection.
Anyway, game looks terrific, eh? Very, very tense.
