Virtual reality is hot like never before, and so it retro style gaming. In that way it makes perfect sense that developers Ana Ribeiro and Stef Keegan is merging the two with Pixel Ripped 1989.
Ribeiro, who used to be a pie maker before turning to game development, has already caused some enthusiasm through the game's Kickstarter Campaign, which is currently just getting rolling towards the goal of £40,000. With 29 days there is a lot more pledges needed. The game itself puts you in the shoes of a student who just wants to play videogames:
"In Pixel Ripped 1989, videogames addict, Nicola is struggling to play her favourite titles on a handheld console within a virtual world in the year 1989. She must defeat the distractions of the everyday so she can get on with what's truly important, playing videogames in class and getting away with it! Pixel Ripped 1989 is a game within a game and will virtually immerse players in the world of videogames like never before," Ribeiro writes in a press release.
