Anyone who knows me, knows that I am obsessed with old school 8 bit graphics and artwork. My obsession became abundantly clear when I played a little game on the NES (that's the Nintendo Entertainment System for those acronym-ally deficient) back in 1989, called River City Ransom.
It had a style all it's own. And beyond the charm of the characters, game design and catchy music, you got to beat the ever living crap out of people and that's what really establishes a solid foundation for an impressionable youth such as myself.
But no one made an official sequel to this cult classic. Why the hell not? The closest we ever got to one was the Scott Pilgrim game. I don't get it. Why did no one ever make an officially licensed sequel to the original game. I get it. These games take time, it has only been nearly 25 years. Maybe they really wanted to work out the kinks.
Hmmm. Maybe I should make the sequel instead. I got nothing going on right now. I might as well. I was going to eat this burger but... eh... it can wait.
Check out the announcement for the official sequel to River City Ransom with my absurd take on the franchise.
I'll make sure to do my childhood memories justice. Or at least partial justice. Not vigilante justice though. That's taking it way too far.
