Pixel Ripped 1989 is an 80s Fan’s Dream
“But when it comes to reliving a bygone era, this strange yet surprisingly relatable throwback goes about things a bit differently, offering one of the most impressive and self-aware VR experiences in quite some time.”
VR technology fully immerses the player in the game, think of it as a more realistic version of Ready Player One, the recent Steven Spielberg film that is also an 80s oasis in itself. Pixel Ripped 1989 takes the notion of 80s dedication up a notch.
The game was created by Ana Ribeiro and started out as a final project in her master’s degree program, according to the report.
“Set in the late ’80s, you’re placed in the shoes of rebellious grade-school student Nicola, who loves to spend time on her handheld game system. Her favorite videogame is the action-platformer game Pixel Ripped, starring the blaster-wielding and platform-jumping Dot,” according to GameSpot‘s description of the game.
“When the evil Cyblin Lord’s ambitions go beyond the realm of the videogame, he escapes into the real world, bringing familiar enemies along with him. To stop the main baddie, Nicola must guide Dot through increasingly difficult stages where she’ll shoot monsters and other baddies–all while avoiding the gaze of her overbearing teacher and other distractions around the school.”
