The PC edition of Retro City Rampage
will be released on Tuesday, October 9th, and this page
is where you can still preorder the retro arcade-style action game and get in on its preorder bonuses. Word is: "Your single-user license will include a DRM-FREE Version of the game and a Steam or a GOG version as well! You can play whichever you prefer." Thanks nin via Rock, Paper, Shotgun
. Here's a reminder of what the game is all about:
THE PLAYER is out for a friendly frolic of CRIME CAPERS when suddenly ambushed by EVIL GOOD GUYS. They will stop at nothing to end his RAMPAGE OF DOOM threatening the citizens of Theftropolis City. Are YOU bad enough to defeat the EVIL GOOD GUYS?
RETRO CITY RAMPAGE lets you play as THE PLAYER. Take the wheel with five-finger discounts on over 30 vehicles and wield over 20 weapons that will make you say "WHOA"! Run down innocent pedestrians to hear the magnificent monophonic modulated sounds. Order a pint of "SOUR MILK" from the barkeep to make yourself sick and avoid taking responsibility for your actions. At some point, defeat the EVIL GOOD GUYS then relax and go do it, when you want an ICED TEA.

sent along Kevin's Famous Chili
