Sobre este jogo

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 multi-player modes, designed to engage players’ social and competitive sides. Co-operative multi-player allows players to complete the campaign of the game with a friend, teaming up to restore the system to working order. Competitive multi-player 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

Retrovirus é um jogo indie muito, muito bom. Possuindo aspectos inovadores em termos de configuração, uma ampla liberdade de movimentação 6DoF, campanha de duração razoável para um shooter, sistema de progressão satisfatório, e variadas opções de multiplayer, não há como não dizer que o jogo merece a atenção dos gamers de plantão que buscam títulos cooperativos em especial.
E isso porque eu nem falei tudo: o jogo ainda possui algumas challenges (Corrida, Time Attack, etc), suporte a 3D (inclusive Oculus Rift!), e suporte ao Steam Workshop para mods, com um editor próprio para criar os mods! Não criei uma aba disso pois por enquanto só há dois mods, mas com o potencial disso é muito bom.
O pessoal da velha guarda certamente irá lembrar do clássico Descent pela movimentação, então o fator nostalgia soma-se aos sons e gráficos, e pode fornecer uma experiência muito boa.
Uma curiosidade é que o jogo esteve no Kickstarter por 1 mês em meados de 2012, onde recebeu apenas 29 mil dólares, bem abaixo dos 75 mil pedidos. E mesmo assim está ai, repleto de opções, e muito bem polido. Não dá pra negar que a Cadenza fez um ótimo trabalho. Eu certamente irei acompanhar os futuros trabalhos deles.
Certamente, nunca mais irei olhar para meu Avast com os mesmos olhos…

Retrovirus é um Descent evoluído. Com sua atmosfera estranha, fases que exploram muito bem a temática computacional (algo na linha de Tron), ambientes instigantes e interessantes de se navegar e mecânicas bem elaboradas, ele é um FPS bem peculiar e original, com uma pegada mais oldschool, o que o torna particularmente atraente para fãs de shooters antigos para PC.

Let me start with, I do not dislike this game. It isn't a great game, but it's not bad either. Gameplay reminds me of Descent(Never heard of it? Look it up!). The idea is you are an antivirus program inside of an infected computer. Of course the inside of the computer is designed to be like subways, and other tight rooms and corridors. I don't know why I can't get Wreck it Ralph out of my head but it can relate. Different programs are different characters. Anyway, the computer was infected with a worm so you have to work your way to finding it, killing stuff, and upgrading your definitions(abilities) to fight it.

So far there is a decent variety of weapons, enemies and challenges. You are introduced with more along your journey at a not very impressive rate. It does get repetative so I can only do about a level or two at a time. But that might just be me haha and I do not think I am very far in it so things can really pick up soon. I'll post updates as I play more or when I finish so check for comments before buying if you want to read any more crap I spew.

Okay, why were people expecting Descent? In D, you're in AN UNDERGROUND MINE. It's gonna be crampped and kinda confusing. A personal computer's busses are not gonna come anywhere near that, and it does become quite klausteric in some portions, emphasising quick judgement and 6DOF-CQC, like Descent. The graphics are supposed to be fancy to reflect modern computers, although I will say that the engine the game runs on is quite inefficent, but powerful nonetheless.

One of the only negative aspects I can find about this game is the AI, where they're just kinda point-and-shoot, and don't move around much or do anything special like Big D had. I also didn't like how the conductor has this OP hitscan weapon while infected, but when NOT infected, he's defenseless. Don't do that.

Okay, good elements: THE SOUNDTRACK. OH MY GOD THE SOUNDTRACK. It ain't D's techno shenanigans, but it fits the game damn fine, the synths come in warm and cold flavors and the boss themes are on-point, the neurofunk and Amen work is immaculate, and aranged OST is a standalone album - no question. Jonanthan Peros did a wonderful job composing and producing both the procedural and aranged work. I couldn't fathom how many bassbins would be destroyed if he ended up with a record deal on some label like Mindtech.

The story was grand. There were two layers: The good ol' fashion blow everything to Kingdom Come and save the babes, and then there was the email layer that told a deeper story for all those >muh immersion folks. I also like how the protag you play as actually IS a retrovirus. Able to function independantly through the system with no operating AV controller, change it's code on the fly, and then there's the Oracle's ability to forge definitions for unknown malware.
This level of AV tech simply does not exist yet. It is some next-level ♥♥♥♥. Most of the time, you have to have someone in meatspace to hand-scan lines and lines and lines of code before pushing it through with the next definitions update.
I also LOVE the little detail at the end where the only weapon that can hurt the final boss (which takes place in the BIOS, obviously) is the Interupt (shotgun). If you know anything about computers, you'd know why that is.

Lastly is the gameplay. It's a bit slow, but the open Steam Workshop allows for gameplay modifiers, and Big D's was actually fairly slow too, until you mastered chording and/or the AB (D2 and especially in D3 where pulsing it at 100% can accelerate you to breakneck speeds). Honestly I found it completely playable, but the framerate kinda made it hard, but I pushed through anyway beceause it was enjoyable. I also liked the upgrade system, while it didn't seem complete, it was very useful and I got a lot of use out of it - switching between abilities while under fire to fulfill a situation that my current loadout can't eat.
There was one bug that bugged me, and that was that rockets that hit walls don't hurt you, but if they hit a target, they do hurt you.
OH, and there are bugs that prevent you from 100% the whole game. But I got all the emails, so no biggie.

Overall, 8/10 would play again. In fact, I actually have played it twice. Oh, and I bought the album. It can be found here.


And before I get any downvotes or nasty comments, look at my icon (boss6's face), look at my current handle (bossrobotdad). I've been Going Down, Again! since 1995, and currently I've completed an Ace run (5.4mil points, all hostages, all ES missiles, all secret levels) and working on my Insane run. I like to come out of focus with the game to watch my own fingerwork on the keyboard because I'm amazed at how far I've come since '97/'98.
Do you think you can find a bigger Big D fanbwoy on this platform?
Don't answer that.
