Monday: Unleashing A Virus Named TOM

Meet TOM, a computer virus sent to destroy a future utopia. Whether alone or with friends, TOM must riddle his way through this high-tech puzzler.

The San Francisco game development feature kicks off with the puzzle game A Virus Named TOM from developer Misfits Attic. In this hybrid action/puzzle game, you take on the role of TOM, a simple computer virus built for revenge. Of course, as TOM's creators Tim and Holly Keenan demonstrate, TOM is also great at hot-wiring robot dogs and spoiling Christmas for children everywhere. See for yourself in the video below, and for more information on the game check out the official site.

Interesting game, but it seems more like a multiplayer game for 3-4 people. Not sure how fun this game would be as a single player game. I'd try the demo, but it just doesn't look like a game I'd pay $10 or $15 for. Looks like an IOS game for $1.99-$4.99 on tablets. Games like Cut the Rope and Where's My Water are more interesting then this.


Hmm, it's a pretty cool game. It's like they took a hacking mini-game from, say, DX: HR, or Bio Shock, and made a whole game out of it.
