PAX: High Strangeness shows off a different view photo
PAX: High Strangeness shows off a different view
by Brett Makedonski

Long-time Dtoid community member turned videogame developer, AgentMOO, is showing his team's latest efforts off at PAX East, and the product looks pretty impressive thus far. High Strangeness is a top-down retro adventure game with a pretty unique hook.

Approximately ten minutes into the demo, the protagonist finds a red skull that grants him the ability to switch between 8-bit and 16-bit graphics. The style has been aptly dubbed 12-bit.
