From Dinosaurs to Alligators: The Evolution from Retro Gaming to eSports

Looking at the popularity of eSports today, some would wrongly assume that audiences’ obsession with “faster” and “newer” would mean that retro games are heading towards extinction. However, that’s a misconception. Rather, it is as if dinosaurs are now living side by side with their modern-day alligator descendants. eSports have arguable been in existence for decades, […]

Ghost for MSX Computer

MSX Receives Ghost, a 2D Side Scrolling Action Adventure, Beta

The MSX gaming computer never made a significant impact in North America but over in Japan, it had quite a following. Enough support that Microsoft released a follow up computer called the MSX2, and a few other variations. Interesting that the MSX ran an extended version of Microsoft BASIC and yet still, developers were able […]

Switchblade Atari Jaguar

Switchblade Comes to Atari Jaguar

Raise your hand if you remember Switchblade. For me, I remember an Atari Lynx game using this name maybe with a “II” after it other than that, this is a new game to me. I understand that this was originally a Commodore Amiga game which is a shame because the only Commodore computer I gamed […]

Rainbow Brite Journey to Rainbow Land

Rainbow Brite Journey to Rainbow Land Game Inbound

Rainbow Brite, owned by Hallmark Cards, is one of the rare 1980’s properties to not at least receive a “homage” game is about to receive her own full-blown title. Coleco have licensed the Rainbow Brite characters from Hallmark Cards with intent to create a new table top game. Back in the day, Coleco were known […]

Space Cactus Canyon Atari 2600

Space Cactus Canyon Enters Beta on Atari 2600

Life as a cactus is not exactly a life of action. You pretty much stand there in all the heat all day and soak up what little water you can. That is a normal cactus. The last cactus on Earth, who just happens to be the star of Space Cactus Canyon on the Atari 2600, […]

The Humans Bundle

The Humans, a puzzle series that was like Lemmings, is finally available on GoG.com. All three games in the series in one package for one price. Piko Interactive went out, got the rights and released these games as a collection.

Sword of Iffrit

Sword of Iffrit New Atari 2600 Game in Beta

New Atari 2600 games seem to be falling out of the sky. Most of them are mock-ups only featuring no gameplay and certainly not running on actual hardware (old school limitations suck). One rather interesting new game that is currently in beta that caught my attention is Sword of Iffrit. This appears to be an […]

Noah's Ark NES

New Kickstarter for Noah’s Ark on Nintendo NES and Sega Genesis

We don’t cover a lot of Kickstarter news here on RGM for a reason. I don’t speak for everyone writing for RGM but me personally, I am a fan of Wisdom Tree. They announce new games then finish and release them. Amazing concept but so many in the retro gaming world need to learn that […]

Unholy Night SNES Fighting Game

Unholy Night, New Super Nintendo Fighter, Available Now on Amazon

Previously we discussed Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter, and now we can bring you news that it is available on Amazon. The first thing I can tell you about this news is that Unholy Night is unlike most retro releases we see. The publisher is not using artificial scarcity to drive sales for instance. Also, […]

Total Recall NES

Five Gaming Licenses that Missed the Mark

Licensing is a staple of gaming. It has been since the Atari 2600 days. Licensing is going nowhere as companies realize they can halfheartedly work on a game, slap a license on it, and expect to at least make back their investment if not a tidy profit to boot. I have collected five licensed games […]
