You may have thought that A Virus Named Tom
was a quirky looking puzzle game with a cute 50s dieselpunk aesthetic, but it turns out in this trailer that there's actually a story behind that art direction. This is great for me because I've always kind of sympathized with mad scientists--too often are they the villains in video games, instead of the protagonists...does anybody remember MDK 2? It's kind of clever to be working for a crazed genius, as the digital personification of all his misunderstood rage. I'll show them...I'll show them all!
