'Narita Boy' from Studio Koba is the epitome of modern-retro pixel games - it's pretty as a pixel, has that sexy glitch look, and an 80s synth soundtrack. 😎🎹 Have to admit, we were getting kinda sick of all the retro stuff, but this game is so beautiful it's made us change our mind. Love love the trailer. 💚 Go watch it. It just gets more bonkers the more you watch - surfing a floppy disk? Riding a server? Will be backing this today on kickstarter. 🤑
From their kickstarter page - the aesthetic of the game is inspired by retro pixel adventures (Castlevania, Another World, Double Dragon) with a modern touch (Superbrothers, Sword and Sorcery) and an 80s plot homage (Ready Player One, He-Man, The Last Starfighter), accompanied by the retro synth touch of the old glory days.
Sounds cheesy, and it is, but I think I love it. 🧀🙈😍 Twitter: https://twitter.com/studiokobaGAME
