Not enough hype on this forum for this game.

Anyway the dev posted some pics on their Facebook page of the MS-DOS EGA Simulation mode:

I then chipped in saying it CGA, Monochrome & Gameboy would be nice too and then the dev said there will be CGA & Gameboy modes too!

Trailer of the regular mode for those not in the know:

And just for the sake of it the April Fools joke:

EDIT: Screen of GB mode just released. Also over on Twitter they say it has C64 mode which they really like, Windows 3.1 which "looks like ass".

Heh, that's pretty funny.

I haven't really been following the game but I've been seeing your news posts on it and I have a feeling I'll get it for the Vita when it comes out. Hopefully it'll come out next month (like Wikipedia says).

Devs say its definitely out on Steam, XBLA & WiiWare next month. I can't say that I would want to play this on such a tiny screen like PS Vita though. :yaypsp:

this actually looks like fun. 3DS, please get it on eShop pronto.

Yeah, I'm surprised it didn't honestly. Like it's practically on everything else and it's not like the 3DS can't handle it. I doubt it'd use 3D at all but who gives a fuck about that.

Also I'm surprised there's no iPhone/Android port. Just saying with GTA: CW (being a top-down GTA game) being on the system.

They're considering those versions but they said something about they won't yet otherwise the game will be delayed further and they feel several years (longer if you count the time when this was the GTA3 demake, Grand Theftendo) is enough of a wait. When I say "they" its essentially one guy doing most of the work.

i'm seeing the resolution, and they definitely have to resize things to fit this on a handheld (VIta could probably handle it well, but the 3DS will need some adjusting).

but man, this game seriously looks awesome. they could totally fool us with that look if they included tons of game mechanics and maybe even advanced physics, something that could belie the simple presentation.

Yeah its retro mainly in look and references. This could not be done on anything higher than PlayStation+ and there are a lot of modern gameplay elements in there as well

First 15 minutes:

This is one of those games where the replay value would be extremely high, shit I'd just replay it in CGA mode.

arrrrrrrr, please, no more. i can't take all these awesomeness when i know it will only be on a platform I DON'T HAVE. :(

You don't have a Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, or Vita?

EDIT: Or a PC? I would think it won't be too intensive for a PC.
PC, i have that. but no Steam. (i don't even think Steam is available on my country). i *could* pirate this, theoretically, but awesome stuff deserve support. also, i'm not much of a console guy, handhelds already eat a considerable amount of my free time. woe unto me if i bought a console...

There is a regular PC version as well as Steam. Also when you pre-order (£6 was a fricking bargain for me!) you get a none DRM version as well as a version for Steam.
