  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

January 31st, 2013 -- SANTA ANA -- Cadenza Interactive is proud to announce today the release of its sophomore title, Retrovirus, for PC via Steam. In development for two and a half years, Retrovirus is a modernization of the “six-axis” ( 6DoF) shooter concept as explored by the mid-90’s classic Descent.

Players take on the role of the anti-virus “Agent,” a system process designed to seek out and destroy the viruses that are rapidly destroying an innocent computer system. Retrovirus is built around five hour campaign, fully voiced by Zen Josey and IPL eSports broadcaster Kevin Knocke. The campaign can be enjoyed solo, or in co-op with a friend.

In addition to campaign co-op, multiplayer fans will enjoy co-operative challenge scenarios, and competitive gameplay modes like Deathmatch and FPS MOBA (PvPvE).

Retrovirus features a robust decision-based AI, a host of friendly and enemy processes, and a richly stylized computer world. Players can expect a world colored by dynamic lighting, viral infestations throughout the environment, and of course, challenging fast-paced combat.

Cadenza Interactive is an independent PC development studio based in Santa Ana, California.
