A Virus Named TOM infects your living room on Steam Big Picture at 75% off !

For immediate release - San Francisco - It takes 2 to spread a virus... 2-4 that is. With Steam Big Picture launching today A Virus Named TOM is a whopping 75% off. Why so much? To celebrate being played the way it was intended: with friends of questionable morals over for a couch co-op session, causing mayhem throughout the City of Tomorrow!

But don't get the wrong impression. While it is cooperative, we mean that in the loosest sense possible. Sure you need to work together to infect the city, but no one said you couldn't get achievements for killing your teammates, or that you shouldn't rub it in their face when the results screen shows you solved most of the puzzle or took out the most drones, while they acted like some scared little email virus.

Doubt our cooperative nougaty center? See what reviewers had to say about it:

"...the best feature of the game is its cooperative gameplay – which should say something considering the magnificence of the single-player game."

- Co-optimus.com

“The most addictive co-op game we’ve played since Portal 2.”

MMGN.com

"Failing a puzzle in single-player mode is upsetting, but when you can blame at least half of the loss on another person (preferably one whom you care about deeply), it's much more enjoyable."

- Joystiq

"Getting angry at a friend because he doesn’t see the solution as clearly as you is always fun and allows for some really entertaining moments."

- GamesRetrospect

"While playing through the co-op levels with a friend, I couldn’t help but think about Portal 2’s co-op experience...If you’re looking for an engaging puzzler this one is a no-brainer, but if you’ve got a friend you can play co-op locally, it is a must buy"

- Internet Freaks

“Friendships will be destroyed, but I’m sure that’s all part of Dr. X’s diabolical plan.”

- TruePCGaming

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
