About The Game

Welcome to Suburbia, just outside the City, sometime in 198X.

This is the journey of Kid, a teenager stuck between the limitations of innocent youth and the obligations of inevitable adulthood. The story unfolds when Kid discovers the local arcade – finding new worlds, and new meaning, in video games. For every visit to the arcade – every game uncovered, every move mastered, every demon defeated – Kid grows stronger. And the lines between reality and game start to blur...

  • 5 full-blown arcade stages in 5 different genres
  • 9 expert pixel artists delivering larger-than-life old-school sprites
  • 20+ music tracks from the likes of Yuzo Koshiro and Swedish hit-duo Sinephony
  • 90+ minutes of intense gameplay and pixel-art storytelling
