The Angry Video Game Nerd's assault on all things sh*tty and retro will soon break from the confines of live-action footage and into the digital world. Following last week's teaser trailer, here comes pre-alpha gameplay of Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures, submitted for your dissection.
With NES Zapper in hand, the pixelated Nerd races through levels modeled after the highest and lowest points of old-school gaming, from Mega Man 2 and Castlevania to the ball-busting Silver Surfer. He even confronts a Cacodemon from Doom made entirely out of feces and dodges a swarm of cock-and-ball missiles. Subtle and reserved, this game is not.
AVGN Adventures is still on track for PCs later this year, and it looks like Steam users will also be served. It has passed through Greenlight in less than two weeks, a testament to the Nerd's ravenous fanbase. The game certainly looks decent thus far, and considering this footage is from a pre-alpha build, it's bound to look even snazzier down the line.
