Retro City Rampage adds mod support and enhanced graphics

The retro gaming-inspired title is reduced on Steam today

Retro City Rampage was released on almost every system possible last year but the PC version is getting a lot of love today. Not only is it reduced by 75% to just £2.99/$3.74 in Steam's Daily Deal, developer Brian Provinciano has also updated the PC version with a new enhanced graphics mode and mod support.

While the new graphics mode doesn't drastically change the look of the game, the addition of real-time shadows and doubling the colors on-screen are nice touches. The new modding tools look to be a fun addition letting players create new vehicles, characters, and fonts.

It'll be fun to see what retro-game-inspired concepts gamers come up with using these new tools. It seems like if you've been holding off on purchasing Retro City Rampage, then now's the time to take the plunge.
