Retro City Rampage, an action-adventure game developed by Brian Provinciano, will make it to PlayStation 3, PS Vita and PC on Oct. 9. While the game is planned for Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 and WiiWare for Nintendo Wii, those release dates are to be announced and will release some time later.

Retro City Rampage is done in the top-down perspective, similar to the original Grand Theft Auto games. However, it will shift for various missions and mini-games that the player will encounter in the game to throw variety into the mix. The main character, Jester will perform various missions for the local mob.

The game, in title and gameplay footage, seems to ooze an 8-bit retro vibe and style. What are most striking about Retro City Rampage are all the subtle and overt references to many games of the past.

Brian Provinciano is the lone developer of the multi-platform, 8-bit throwback, which naturally means that the man has put years of work into the game. The game started out as a homebrew project back in 2002, where Provinciano developed his own NES development tools that did not have all the limitations of the original NES development software before eventually transitioning to development on the PC.

In 2011, Provinciano showed his work at Game Developers Conference and the public learned plenty of information regarding the game. Later in the game’s development, Provinciano brought a pixel artist on board along with Leonard “FreakyDNA” Paul, Jake “Virt” Kaufman and Matt “Norrin Radd” Creamer to compose the game’s huge chiptune soundtrack.

Retro City Rampage was originally supposed to come out in May, but like many indie games, it was pushed back. Gamers who have been salivating for the game will finally get their opportunity to play Retro City Rampage on Tuesday, provided they own a PS3, PS Vita or PC.

The game will feature plenty of things for potential buyers to enjoy. The game with have over 50 story missions with plenty of variety ranging from driving to rhythm and much more, 30 arcade challenges, 25 weapons & power ups, 40 vehicles to steal, a huge open-world, massive character customization and plenty of other features to sweeten the pot. As a bonus for people who purchase the game from the official site, they will also get a mini-soundtrack from Norrin Rad, digital cartridge box and label, a digital game manual and 20% off the site’s store merchandise.

Retro City Rampage will be $14.99 on PS3, PS Vita and Steam, GoG for PC.
