Backward rhythm shooter Retro/Grade announced for PSN


At first glance, Retro/Grade looks to be a very ordinary and uninteresting shooter, and I admittedly let out a small groan upon watching the first few seconds of its trailer, thinking we had another Aegis Wing on our hands. That was, until, they said we'd be playing it backward. With rhythm-based movement. To a chiptune-inspired soundtrack. With a guitar controller, if that's your cup of tea. Now you have my pensive attention.

The first effort by developer 24 Caret Games, Retro/Grade has just been announced for release on PSN. You can play the game with a standard PS3 controller, or as mentioned, plug in your Guitar Hero thingy and rock it out that way, so to speak. No word yet on a date, but if the idea of a backward-retro-rhythm-shooter sounds like something you can't wait for, there's a demo available now, and more info on the game's Web site. Oh, and that trailer? You'll find it after the jump.
