Take A Nostalgic Trip Down To "Retro City"

The road to Retro City Rampage's release has been a long and strenuous one. Originally supposed to be a de-make of the Grand Theft Auto series called "Grand Theftendo" Brian Provinciano's brainchild started taking another form after he wanted to make it more original, not just a parody of Rockstar's beloved series. Instead he took elements from games, cartoons, and movies he loved as a child and inserted them into the main storyline. What was just a mere send-up of a modern-day classic was now a super-parody, filled with jokes found in every crevice of the game. Retro City Rampage is also one of the best love letters to gamers since Polytron's Fez.

In Retro City Rampage players take control of Player, a guy who's the opposite of a goodie little two-shoes that helps the evil Jester pull off a massive bank heist. After the Jester accidentally blows up the bus with the loot, Player finds himself being chased by every hero and police officer in town. Soon he steals a time machine, kills Michael J. Fox, and meets Doc, who is tricked by Player into fixing the time machine for his own personal gain.
