6w ago - VBlank Entertainment Developer Brian Provinciano announced that Retro City Rampage: DX Hits PS Store tomorrow and PS4 retail soon.

To quote: Tomorrow, the open-world nostalgia trip that is Retro City Rampage: DX hits PS4, PS3 and PS Vita digitally with 3X Cross Buy. With a 20% off PlayStation Plus launch week discount, you'll get all three for $7.99 ($9.99 without Plus).

That's almost half of the original's $14.99 launch price and with an added platform.

Even more, this time digital isn't your only option. 'DX' is getting a limited edition PS4 retail disc release too!





The retail edition will include the PS4 game, the digital soundtrack and a few more digital freebies for only $25. Limited to 2,000 units, this is the rarest PS4 game ever produced. Seeing as the limited edition Vinyl soundtrack sold out long ago, I strongly recommend pre-ordering. It's sold exclusively online via the [Register or Login to view links]. and available for pre-order now.

Retro City Rampage: DX Coming to PS4, PS3, PS Vita November 11th

200°
7w ago - VBlank Entertainment Developer Brian Provinciano announced today that Retro City Rampage: DX is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms on November 11th, 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: Retro City Rampage: DX, the top-to-bottom remaster of the original game will make its PS4 debut along with the brand new PS3 and PS Vita DX versions this November 11th, complete with cross buy and cross save for all three consoles.

With a 20% off PlayStation Plus launch week discount, you'll get all three for $7.99 ($9.99 without Plus). That's only around $3 for each platform, and much less than the original RCR's $14.99 launch price.

So What's 'DX,' Exactly?

Those who've been following RCR will know just how much the game has changed since the original launch. Within weeks of the original RCR's 2012 release, updates made vehicles faster, added more checkpoints, tutorials, hints screens, and tweaked missions. Those changes made great improvements, but still just scratched the surface. DX is a top-to-bottom remastering of just about everything.

For DX, every single mission's been re-tuned. Vehicles. Weapons. Challenges. Visual Effects. Visual Enhancements. Checkpoints. Difficulty. Challenges. From the game's core to sprinkles on top, such as parking garages and waypoints,...
 

Retro City Rampage Update Adds Retro+ Mode & Prototype Version

250°
74w ago - Developer Brian Provinciano announced today that their Retro City Rampage update adds Retro+ Mode and a Prototype Version with details below.

To quote: A new Retro City Rampage update has just dropped, which takes things both forward and backward! To celebrate the update, Retro City Rampage is on sale for $4.99.

Not only that, but it's Cross Buy, so this means you're getting both the PS3 and PS Vita versions together for only $2.50 each!

RETRO+ Enhanced Graphics Mode

The "RETRO+" Enhanced Graphics Mode gives RCR a neo-retro boost with dynamic shadows, doubling the colors on screen. The shadows and increased contrast help sprites pop like never before. For purists, the original 8-bit mode is still there in all its glory, but if you're ready for a slight retro remix, RETRO+ is a great new way to enjoy the game.

Prototype Version

"ROM" City Rampage, an 8-bit hardware-accurate prototype has also been added. Drive around Theftropolis with the strict limitations of 1980s hardware, sprite flicker and all.

Compare side by side how closely Retro City Rampage adheres to classic hardware and where it strays, and see what really was possible in 1989. See what actually could've been released on cartridge, had...
 

Video: Retro City Rampage Launch Trailer for PS3, PS Vita Tuesday

50°
115w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has shared a Retro City Rampage launch trailer video for PS3 and PS Vita today, with the title arriving this Tuesday for fans.

To quote: After months (years?) of anticipation, the big moment is almost here: [Register or Login to view links]'s long-gestating 8-bit open-world homage Retro City Rampage comes to PS3 and PS Vita tomorrow on PSN, complete with the ever-coveted Cross Buy and Cross Save features.

If you've never heard of Retro City Rampage, a) shame on you and b) I scarcely know where to begin! Imagine jamming all your favorite 8-bit games into a sprawling open world ala Grand Theft Auto and you'll have a rough sense of this game's special brand of pixelated magic.

Retro City Rampage has more than 60 Story missions that span driving, stealth, platforming, shooting, swimming, and questing (just to name a few) as well as 40 Arcade challenges if you're in need of a quick release.

Looking for more numbers? Try these: 25+ weapons and power-ups, 50+ driveable vehicles, and 2.5 hours of glorious chiptune symphonies. And let's not forget what might be the most important number of all: $14.99.

Let's give the freshly released launch trailer a looksee!

135w ago - Retro City Rampage developer Brian Provinciano has posted up a video today of Retro City Rampage in action on PlayStation Vita with details below.

To quote: As I announced in the last blog post, Retro City Rampage is coming to PS3 and PS Vita! But today I bring more great news...

Recently in Toronto we held an amazing event called [Register or Login to view links] to promote and support Canadian indie game developers.

In attendance were us here at Vblank Entertainment, Drinkbox Studios (Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack), Queasy Games (Sound Shapes), ][ Games (Dyad) and more. It was a blast!

For me, the highlight was finally giving fans a chance to see and play the PS Vita version of Retro City Rampage for the first time. I've been going on for a while about how amazing it looks on the PS Vita, and now you can see what it looks like for yourself.

Those of you who are worried that the characters might be too small on the PS Vita screen needn't be! It supports two screen modes.





The standard mode designed specifically for the PS Vita scales everything up and ensures that the characters...
