VRX.exe The Game

by nbross - Mini LD 60 Entry

Cleaning a computer is easy. A button click here, wait a few hours, button click there, wait a few more.... BORING!!

Take cleaning to the next level. No more mbam, no more avast. YOU are the anti-virus. With the new VRX hardware, you can put yourself in the game and fight those nasty viruses in this endless dungeon crawler. But be warned - you are foreign to the computer too, so be careful where you shoot as you might hurt yourself. Trust me, it hurts A LOT.

Still in dev - made this for a game-jam held between my co-workers. Was quite fun! This is my first official game using GameMaker Studio so I hope you like it. The joysticks in the gif are for the still in progress android version.

Really awesome game it plays very similarly to The Binding of Isaac its a nice touch that when you mouse over yourself you shoot yourself. Nice attention to detail.

I like the game, but I would have preferred the standalone runner and not an installer.

A fine game with a fun intro story.

Really beautiful graphics. Great idea as well, though I felt like the story went by too fast! I included your game in part 3 of my MiniLD #60 compilation video series, if you would like to check it out :)

I included your game in an article of my favorites, but since you have not posted yet and dont have a public profile, I cannot award a trophy to your profile! If you do at some point post, thus activating your profile, let me know so I can add a trophy to it!
