The intense June release schedule continues unabated, with the Atari tinged virtual reality adventure Pixel Ripped 1978 now gold and ready for release on 15th June. For those of you who haven’t been following this, the PSVR2 game sees you assume the role as a young game designer and programmer, with the skill to travel inside the software she’s making.
If you haven’t played any of the previous Pixel Ripped titles, then you’ll likely be impressed by what you find here. The series fuses traditional retro gameplay with unique virtual reality scenarios; for example, in the original, you’re tasked with playing a side scrolling platformer on a Game Boy without attracting your teacher’s attention.
The twist here is that Atari has got officially involved, so there’ll be multiple references to real-world releases from the iconic publisher. We can’t wait!
This is looking great, and I know it will be a day one purchase for me. Just from what I’ve played of the previous games (which are also being ported over by the way).
Are you guys going to review Red Matter 2? It’s one of the best VR2 games around yet it isn’t getting the visibility it deserves. Made by just a two man dev team I believe.
I would not have thought an Atari game would be one of my most anticipated titles of 2023, but it is.
This looks awesome. Already plan to buy it but June is so stacked already. Might put it on wishlist and wait
Speaking of Atari and VR - now that PSVR2 is out, any chance Battlezone might get an upgrade?
I've avoided playing much of the non-VR version, but I get the impression it didn't sell all that great.
@thefourfoldroot1 was wondering why we haven’t seen. Red Matter 2 review yet myself, as it’s a milestone title as far as PSVR2 releases go so far. Push Square have been pretty good at covering the platforms releases too, and shouldn’t miss this one.
Looking forward to Pixel Ripped too.
Will your joystick break like my old 2600 controllers constantly did? I actually upgraded to a joystick that wouldn’t break and came with a rapid fire feature.
Great to see a Brazilian game studio getting some attention. Specially with it being in PSVR2, which has become my default platform. Flat-screen gaming has lost its flair to me.
