Micro meets macro in this multiplayer game of biological warfare. The Host player assumes the role of the Doctor in a medical sim where the objective is to save the ‘host’ of a virus that could destroy mankind. Additional players control microbes in a 2D platform game that represents the interior of the infected host, with the ultimate goal of bringing down the host and, eventually, the entire human race. Actions taken in the sim affect the 2D platformers, and vice-versa. This is one game that could definitely go viral.
