Retro City Rampage looks freaking amazing!

Two months ago, Jordan Devore said Retro City Rampage is "one to watch" for. I didn't listen to his wisdom. I regret my entire life now.

You see, Retro City Rampage is definitely one you want to pay attention to as this game looks completely awesome. It looks to be messing together different retro games into one big open-world experience. The press release is pretty epic even:

The entire open-world is in danger. THE PLAYER is out for a friendly frolic of CRIME CAPERS when suddenly ambushed by EVIL GOOD GUYS. They will stop at nothing to end his RAMPAGE OF DOOM threatening the citizens of Theftropolis City. Are YOU bad enough to defeat the EVIL GOOD GUYS? RETRO CITY RAMPAGE lets you play as THE PLAYER. Take the wheel with five-finger  discounts on over 30 vehicles and wield over 20 weapons that will make you say  "WHOA"! Run down innocent pedestrians to hear the magnificent monophonic modulated sounds. Order a pint of “SOUR MILK” from the barkeep to make yourself sick and avoid taking responsibility for your actions. At some point, defeat the EVIL GOOD GUYS then relax and go do it, when you want an ICED TEA.  Ready to see for yourself?

Originally slated for WiiWare, no console is specified at this time, but we will be able to check out Retro City Rampage at PAX Prime next month as it's part of the PAX 10 indie showcase. Check out the official website and keep up with the Retro City Rampage Twitter and Facebook.

So, who's excited for this game now?

High Strangeness lets you shift between 8-bit and 16-bit

With the help of indie publisher Midnight City, High Strangeness is coming out late this year on PC and consoles. Holmes and Ben "AgentMOO" Shostak talked about the "12- bit" adventure and enemies that get more nefarious and capable as you do when you switch to the 16-bit world.more

Interstellar Selfie Station is what happens when you keep the best part of a scrapped project

Christine Love (Analogue: A Hate Story) was making an FMV game and decided that it wasn't fun, but the development tools were. Because of this insight, we can all take 2 bit selfies for days. I wonder how long before my browser's built in spell check accepts "selfies." Yes, you. Do it. Though I don't know if you can beat Holmes and Love.more

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more
