In the distant future of 2016, evil game corporations bent on total world domination completely forgot what the people known as gamers enjoyed.

These AAA-Class producers of interactive media no longer cared to provide quality entertainment, but instead automated their game production lines to easily fill the market with their syndicated and repetitive clones of earth-filtered military FPS simulations.

A small resistance, known only as RETROWAVE, was determined to bring gaming back to its roots. With creativity and a love for the 1980s, they fought to eradicate the hold of the AAA corporations over the visual arts. They dreamed of a world not mired in a hundred shades of brown, but instead of a rich, colorful universe of neon and lasers.

This thread is a testament to their work and the dream they had of a future paradise that never came to be.

Don't AAA devs ever stop to think "Huh, I wonder how cool it'd be if we actually made this game unique or gave it a more unique visual flair at the least instead of shipping out this bland, boring rehash of a project."?

I want to make a game like this but I'm not smart enough to get the aesthetics right, or indeed to use anything beyond Game Maker D&D.

Devs probably do, but their execs and publishers don't. The only thing they think about is marketing and their paycheck at the end of the month.

Too bad Drift Stage blows. The presentation is neat, but the game itself controls like a sack of anvils with a complete disregard for Earth physics

Personal Recommendations:

Alien Isolation
Hotline Miami (obviously)
Vice City (obviously)
Hacknet
Receiver
Bernbrand
Collateral
SOMA

and also Underrail if you like corny retro cyberpunk schlock. It's cheesy as fuck, but it's a great game.

You probably mean Slipstream, though it hasn't come out, there's a demo of it.

The drifiing is pretty simple but I guess fun? I definitely like it more with some outrun tunes playing
