Pixel Ripped 1995: VR Retrogaming Homage to the 90s launches April 23

Brazilian developer and publisher ARVORE is proud to announce that Pixel Ripped 1995 (trailer) will launch on April 23rd on Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, and Steam. Review code and interview requests from press and content creators are open. If interested, please reply to this email. Additionally, ARVORE wants to thank all fans in the PSVR community for their patience, as the Pixel Ripped 1995 version for that platform is going to take a bit longer to release. It has already been submitted to the Sony QA and certification process, and is expected to launch in May.

In the newest chapter of the acclaimed Pixel Ripped series, gamers will take an unforgettable nostalgic trip back to 1995 in this Virtual Reality love letter to classic gaming. Set in a classic era when 16-bit was evolving to 32-bit and first-generation console players were evolving from teens to adults, players will take a trip inside (and outside) of their video game screens to save the universe. In Pixel Ripped 1995, video game hero Dot will recruit the help of the best gamer of the year, an unassuming 9-year-old boy named David, to face challenges together through the world of 2D games and the very first 3D games.

Players will remember that classic feeling of adrenaline when trying to play video games post-bedtime without getting caught or the thrill of finally finding that brand new game at the store. They will venture through homages to the best games and genres from the 1990s, like action RPGs, brawlers, platformers, space shooters, and racing games. And they will do it all while dodging the indignation of miffed parents through multiple environments — the living room, bedroom, the local video rental store, the arcade at the pier, and more. With 6 fully original levels that each feel like entirely different games, Pixel Ripped 1995 is an incredible journey for both VR and retro gamers.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
