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?
