Don't Get a Virus
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Battle computer viruses in frantic bullet hell showdowns on a parody Windows 98 desktop!
Fight for your computer's life as various viruses try to take over! Use your antivirus software to blast the malware away, and be sure to not get hit yourself!
I never finished this game, and probably never will. I think it's alright though!
Don't Get a Virus requires a keyboard and mouse. You'll have a really tough time playing with a trackpad, trust me. The game basically works like an operating system. You control the antivirus window by dragging it around and pressing space to fire. You can change the wallpaper and game difficulty in the settings application. There are also some computer apps you can run, and some files to look at.
This game was being developed with the LÖVE framework. https://love2d.org/ The assets were made in GIMP, Blender, and Audacity.
