Well, damn, today’s Daily Deal on Steam is a sharp one, as you can get Retro City Rampage for just $0.99 or €0.89. Steam’s really been churning them out lately. Those who have fond memories of the original Grand Theft Auto (GTA) release, or pixel art action games in general, should jump on this.
Retro City Rampage uses the GTA model to live out the fantasy of many nerds in a realm where every little corner is a reference to some other title. There are sections nodding toward Back to the Future, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Metal Gear Solid, Frogger and a million things more. As a nice bonus, it probably has one of the better pulsating chiptune soundtracks ever compiled. It’s just so rad. It’s ok to use the word “rad” in this context. We used to say it in those days.
