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.

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…
