RetroBlazer-Pay Attention To This One On Greenlight

SteamFirst: There have been numerous games in the past few years designed to bank on our nostalgia. From platformers to RPGs, the retro-revival style is no longer so much the new black; it’s more of a muted grey from use. That said, while Serious Sam and Painkiller have run with the classic first person shooter style and iterated on it, I cannot think of a stand out example of a true throwback to the days when Powerslave and Redneck Rampage were serious contenders for use of our gaming time.

Failed Kickstarter Videogame Campaigns & Data Analysis For Feb 2015

Marcus Estrada writes: "Every month Kickstarter sees a great many wonderful successes. A few campaigns are lucky enough to be funded within days of launch while others stress us out with near photo finishes. Of course, there’s not infinite money and backers to go around so not every campaign makes it.

Meet RetroBlazer: a PC game that feels like a 1994 run-and-gun shooter, but looks like something you'd catch between episodes of Biker Mice From Mars and Mighty Ducks (that's the cartoon featuring space-ducks fighting space-dinosaurs by the way, not the live-action film featuring a lawyer fighting to be a better person).

Likely no gamepad support and that would be disheartening.


PAX South: Retroblazer is a Throwback FPS with a Lot of Pink | Hardcore Gamer

Let’s face it, modern shooters are getting a bit bloated. New and exciting features are great, but sometimes it’s fun just to go back to basics, and that’s what Retroblazer hopes to do.
