Feline rescue is the basis of the new Dead Island game


Retro Revenge

Dead Island 2 is the next big Dead Island game, but it's not the next Dead Island game. That honor goes to the recently announced Dead Island: Retro Rampage -- a 16-bit romp about rescuing your cat and recovering your RV. Alright then.

This trailer nicely sums up the tone of Retro Rampage, which might be described as "A Streets of Rage-like brawler in which a Jack Black-like man yells a lot." That Jack Blackian protagonist characterizes the game as "chock-full of awesome enemies, sick combos, and enough challenge to send all you hardcore types cryin' home to mama." Again, alright then.

Those who are interested in Retro Rampage need to be interested enough to sign up for the full Dead Island experience. It's an add-on to the Dead Island: Definitive Collection which bundles Dead Island and Dead: Island Riptide. That package is set to release on May 31 for $40. There's no word on a standalone version of Retro Rampage that's in the works.
