Inspired by the retro glory days of 8-bit games, Rex Rocket is a traditional 2D platformer brought into the 21st century. Paying tribute to classic NES platformers like Mario, Mega Man, and Metroid, old-school platformer fans will find Rex Rocket a breath of fresh air. Rob and Tyler, two passionate indie game devs, have a mission to keep the world of retro games alive. Rex Rocket features one-of-a-kind handmade pixel art, over 100 handcrafted levels connected in an expansive starship filled with a wide variety of puzzles, enemies, hazards and bosses. To top it off, we have an an orginal, kick-ass chiptunes soundtrack by Saskrotch. Creating this universe and the memorable characters in this game has been a true labor of love.
We're happy to announce that the official site for Rex Rocket is now live - Castlepixel.com ! Check it out to view an awesome trailer, see some screenshots, and (most excitingly) download a demo of the game. We're also excited to announce that will be attending GDC in San Fransico at the Indie Megabooth. You can read more about the event here - Indiemegabooth.com.
