Recently debuted in our Holiday VR Showcase, we’ve got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at development on Pixel Ripped 1995, the sequel to the dripping-in-nostalgia VR title Pixel Ripped 1989 from last year.
Pixel Ripped 1995 was first announced back in May and will follow a similar trend to the first game, where you play fictional games on virtual recreations of classic consoles. This 1995 era of Pixel Ripped will focus on the dawn of 3D gaming, with consoles similar to the Nintendo 64, the GameBoy and the Sega Genesis.
The new behind-the-scenes video goes through some of the new environments, levels and features of the sequel to the nostalgia-fuel Pixel Ripped 1989.
David was quite a fan of the original Pixel Ripped 1989 game in his review, writing:
“From the opening moments that see you hurtling down a retro-futuristic stylized tunnel of sound and color to the small references to gaming’s past, present, and future, I was constantly surprised. Just when you start to think you’ve seen all the tricks it has in store for you, it throws another curve ball.”
We still don’t have any confirmed platforms for Pixel Ripped 1995, only “all major VR platforms.” While PC VR is pretty much a given, it would be great to see a Quest version and a PSVR port as well. The game is currently due for a Spring 2020 release.
