Retro Game Challenge is a rare breed of game, in that it purposefully revisits old-school gaming with a presentation and core that are unapologetically crude. The blocky graphics and tinny sound effects highlight a series of games that are fictional recreations of archetypical titles of the NES era. Better still, they're a lot of fun to play, with the game receiving the Handheld Game of the Month nod in the February issue of Game Informer Magazine.
Game Informer recently chatted with Masanobu Suzui, president of indies 0 inc., the game's developer. In addition to directing its development, Suzui also supervised its localization from Japan to North America. They talked about the gaming scene in the '80s, his experiences with the hobby growing up and much more.
