Whoever said indie development was all chiptune dance parties and NOS-sponsored galas clearly never worked with the dudes at Retro/Grade dev 24 Caret Games. The studio condensed 48 hours of development time on its latest game into a terrifying one-minute clip, as seen below the break.
Retro/Grade is a videogame developed by 24 Caret Games. The game is about ace pilot, Rick Rocket, who must repeat his last space battle in reverse in order to protect the space time continuum. The game play is rhythm-based and timed to original music by Skyler McGlothlin. In January 2009, it was nominated for two Independent Games Festival awards: Excellence in Audio and Excellence in Design.
