Eight-bit gaming is steadily becoming a trend that has staying power. Playing on nostalgia and simpler games, it’s also a trend that doesn’t appear to be going anywhere any time soon.
Insanity’s Blade takes you into the world of a man on a mission into the depths of Hell to save the souls of his wife and child. The game, still in beta, is a great step back in time to the halcyon days of 8-bit gaming and so far, looks awesome. They have definitely done the genre justice and the creative in-jokes for the geek crowd are fantastic.
Right now, you can test the demo out for Windows, but according to Causal Bit’s Kickstarter page for the project, the plan was to reach their original goal and then move forward to develop console versions. They actually surpassed the goal. This is definitely one to watch whether you’re a gamer that remembers the old days or not: the potential here is great and thus far. Have a look for yourself.
