Description

Interesting attempt at a game where you battle within your own computer's directory structure and files. Traverse your directory tree in a 3D environment hunting down 'viruses', with your computer's own sound files being played in the background, graphic files being used to texture the walls.

Trivia

The manual and the cd of the game were shipped inside a 'static free' envelope, the kind used to protect audio and video cards for PCs. Of course on the envelope there is written 'do not break seal: virus inside'.
