Hello everyone!

Next week we will have everyone jump in and delete everything in their sight with some Retrovirus multiplayer!

Retrovirus Is In The Wild!

Fans and Friends, It is my esteemed honor to release for your pleasure, Cadenza Interactive's second title, Retrovirus. Retrovirus is a six degrees of freedom shooter which sends players into the depths of a computer on a search and destroy mission against an invasive virus. Retrovirus is being created by Cadenza Interactive, the indie studio behind the popular tower defense game Sol Survivor. Players take command of an antivirus program, armed with the tools necessary to erase the virus' very existence from the system.  Movement and exploration are core to the gameplay, and players are encouraged to adapt to the demands of a world where free flight is the norm.  Of course, the virus is armed to fight back, and first person shooter combat features heavily as players test their level of comfort with movement within the machine environment.  Each player is able to customize their antivirus program with different plugins, allowing for a variety of approaches to a given situation. The Retrovirus single player campaign focuses on the core story of the game, with the player's goal being the eradication of the virus and the discovery of its origins.  To defeat the virus, the player must solve puzzles, engage in dogfight-style combat, and explore the depths of the virtual world. Retrovirus also features multiplayer modes, designed to engage players' social and competitive sides.  Co-operative multiplayer allows players to complete the campaign of the game with a friend, teaming up to restore the system to working order.  Competitive multiplayer will focus on the core of the six degrees of freedom shooter, hearkening back to the action-oriented shooters of the late 90's and early 00's. Features:

- Discover movement within a six degrees of freedom environment, free from the limits of traditional gravity-based environments.
- Delve into a two-layered story, exploring the real-world origins of a malicious computer virus and cleansing the inner workings of the infected system.
- Fight battles, complete puzzles and explore an environment built for the free-flying citizens of the computer system.
- Customize an antivirus program, focusing on strength, speed or cunning, with weapons and utilities to suit a variety of play styles.
- Join with a friend to remove the virus from the infected computer by playing the campaign in co-operative mode.
- Compete against other players in a variety of multiplayer modes, testing the limits of combat with six degrees of freedom.
- Retrovirus is available for download on Steam, Desura, GameStop PC Download & w/ Humble Store. You can shop at any of these platforms on Our Store

Thanks to everyone who helped us get here, The Cadenza Interactive Team

The Crunch!

The Crunch

Crunching, for those who don’t know just yet, is when a team of creative individuals have a deadline to deliver their product and a finite amount of time in which to get an exorbitant load of work done. The less technical definition is that it is a caffeine enhanced, sleep-deprived part of a project just before it’s release.

We are Gold!
