Gone Viral, the rough and tumble roguelite brawler you know and
love, hits Early Access today! If you love the brutality, if you love the
carnage, if you love the roaring crowd, then be prepared for the game to enter
overdrive and dole out goodies all over the place. If you pick up the game for
early access today, you’ll get unique, one-of-a-kind cosmetic rewards every
month until the game launches, not to mention all the free updates that we’ve
got planned. New characters, new levels, new bosses, new enemies, new mutations,
new items, you name it, we’ve got it coming down the pike.
Gone Viral explores a mutant post-apocalypse society that so glorifies
violence and social media that the ultimate hybrid of the two has become the
cornerstone of their entertainment – the most brutal game show ever devised.
Gone Viral puts the player in the shoes of a “contestant” on that gameshow who
has been captured and is forced to fight for their life – and for likes.
String together sickening combos to sate your Fans’ thirst for blood and gain
rewards. Mutations upgrade your slaughtering skills to achieve even greater
spectacle and efficiency as you tear your way through room after room, leaving a
trail of blood and tears (but mostly blood) in your wake. Grab your freedom by
Rise to become the apocalypse’s greatest SOCIAL MURDIA STAR as you amass a
following in-game or IRL. “IRL!?” you say? That’s right! Twitch Integration

as Fans who can vote to either help or hinder you.

rewards. Do WHATEVER it takes to gain freedom!
