Shakedown Hawaii cuts a deal for an Epic launch this spring

Shakedown Hawaii - the much-delayed sequel to Vblank Entertainment's grand GTA parody Retro City Rampage - is nearly here, and will be making its debut on the Epic store later this spring. The scope of the game seems to have grown a bit since I last looked. It now blends its pseudo-16-bit aesthetic with the 80s trappings of GTA: Vice City and the character-hopping story…

Less Retro, Same City Rampage: Shakedown Hawaii

After romping through '80s and early '90s pop culture in the 8-bit-styled Retro City Rampage, developers Vblank Entertainment are skipping forward a few years. They've announced Shakedown Hawaii [official site], a follow-up open-world murder simulator which skips towards a 16-bit art style and, I'd imagine, later into '90s pop culture. Presumably the Back to the Future references are now Back to the Future Part III…

More Retro, Better Rampage: Retro City Rampage DX

They describe Retro City Rampage: DX as "a top to bottom remastering of just about everything", rebalancing…

Good GOG: More Silly Prices In The Latest Good Old Sale

I suppose I'm generally in favour of the buying of videogames, however. I'm also in favour of videogames being affordable, so the last gasp of mad discounting in the current…

Brand Theft Auto: Retro City Rampage Out Next Week

True fact: Retro City Rampage has been in development since the late '80s. I mean, look at it. To this day, no one knows exactly how it managed to pre-date many of the games it originally set out to parody, but you can't argue with the sheer history that's written in charming 8-bit graphics. It has, in other words, been quite a long wait since…

Nihilistic Entertainment System: Retro City Rampage

Currently getting owners of the PS Vitalite's expensive knickers in a right old twist, parody open-world carnage game Retro City Rampage will also be careening wildly towards PC with a bloodythirsty look in its pseudo-8-bit eye. Essentially it's GTA 1, if GTA 1 had happened five years earlier and was a mash-up of locales and abilities from assorted touchstones of the early console era. See…
