Take a first look at the IGF-nominated Retro City Rampage!
Yeah, we're all back at work. Yeah, it's a bummer. But no worries, we're making the transition back into real life as easy as possible for you. We've got a first look at the amazing, 8-Bit style sandbox game Retro City Rampage, and some great new free indie games to keep you 'busy' now that you're back at work.
Gamers and pop culture geeks have a brand of humor all their own. A catalog of information and references that goes back their whole lives. A lot of games try to trade on that to add entertainment value - but not many do it without feeling like they're pandering. Still fewer can do it and be incredibly fun to play. Retro City Rampage, the upcoming WiiWare and XBLA title from Vblank is one of those games.
RCR is a parody of sandbox games, most notably Grand Theft Auto. You play as... well.. The Player, a henchman working his way up through the ranks of the video game world of Theftropolis in 1988.
