Vicious Virus Vs.

My new game Vicious Virus Vs. is up on itch. Its a couch co-op arena style fighter targeted at six players. Players compete to infect cells. I made the music/effects myself playing using instruments.

Also… Vicious Virus Vs. will be showing at Death by Audio Arcade’s NYC Indie Game Night Friday March 9th. Come play it the way it was meant to be played, in a crowded room with a bunch of people.. drinking.


New York friends! Please come out to Cooldown tonight, 7pm to 11:30pm at Babycastles

Opening Reception: Friday Dec 8th: 7pm to 11:30pm

Cooldown showcases works of videogame art and experimental interfaces created by emerging artists and designers from Game Design Systems and The New Arcade in Parsons’ Design and Technology program.

Game Design is a quest to answer questions no one asked, all in the name of fun. For Cooldown, Game Design Systems references classic gaming experiences, while turning the gameplay itself into an art form. Works created in The New Arcade explore the possibilities of bespoke interfaces in interactive games, proposing an alternate history of the arcade.
