A Virus Named TOM Free Holiday DLC: 'Tis better to give than receive... a virus

For immediate release - San Francisco - 'Tis better to give than receive... a virus. It's starting to snow in the City of Tomorrow and anit-virus drones are looking more like Frosty the snowman. Hydrators are spiting out Christmas cookies and you can even hear bells jingling in the air. But what about TOM? Even viruses need some Yuletide joy... Help over-decorate TOM, make him look like the Holidays threw up all over him by finding holiday spirit hidden throughout the circuitry of Dr X's inventions. They'll be a new clue each day and the first to send an image of TOM completely decorated will get to decorate themselves with TOM (read: schwag)! This is our holiday gift to everyone in the 'A Virus Named TOM' community! Thanks for making a great 2012! Available free on Steam (Should auto update... A Virus Named TOM: Winter Wonderland)

About A Virus Named TOM

            A perfect place. A city without traffic. A dog that doesn't poop. All products of the brilliant mind of Dr. X, but hell hath no fury like a mad scientist fired by a giant corporation. In this unique action-puzzler you take control of TOM, a virus created for one purpose: revenge. Hack your way through brain scrambling puzzles while maneuvering through a thumb cramping maze of enemies. Team up through over 50 cooperative levels in what MMGN is calling "The most addictive co-op game we've played since Portal 2." And if the over 100 levels aren't enough, you and your friends can destroy each other again and again in battle mode to determine just who is the supreme virus.

Key Features:

- Single Player mode with over 50 levels across 6 distinct areas

- Cooperative mode (for up to 4 players) with over 50 additional levels in which "friendships will be destroyed"

- Battle for supreme virus-itude by battling your friends in Battle Mode

- Evolving mechanics which ratchet up the difficulty from lollipop to soul crushing

- An animated tale full of dark humor, malfunctioning robots, and little girl screams

About Misfits Attic

            Tim and Holly founded Misfits Attic shortly after getting married. They had a daughter during production of 'A Virus Named TOM'  because they felt the stress of running an independent game studio wasn't enough of a challenge.
