Overflowing with nostalgic arcade appeal and boasting innovative mechanics that will captivate VR enthusiasts, Pixel Ripped 1978 playfully encapsulates the era of the blossoming video game industry. Through the eyes of the game’s protagonist, Bug, players will travel between dimensions as they play games within games; a multi-layered adventure full of retro classics, unreleased gems, and undiscovered easter eggs. The collaboration with Atari means even more retro gaming goodness, as players will meet friendly faces from some of their favorite 8-bit games.

Barbara “Bug” Rivers is one of Atari’s most skilled and creative programmers — she can teleport inside of her games to fix design bugs! What started out as the coolest job ever suddenly goes awry when the game Bug is working on, Pixel Ripped, becomes corrupted, and her characters turned into absolute menaces. Who’s at fault? The evil Cyblin Lord, who seeks to hack into the game and remove Dot, Bug’s superhero creation, making himself the protagonist. Bug and Dot must join forces in the pixelated realm to vanquish Cyblin Lord in an effort to launch the game on time!

Key Features:

–Game-Within-a-Game Madness: Travel through the gaming world to save it or fix the game and crack the codes from your office desk. Planes and dimensions are your playground in this whacky space-time adventure!

–Good Ol’ Nostalgia Wackiness: New story, new challenges, new folks and foes… same old crazy moments that only Pixel Ripped can bring you!

–Back to the Past, from the Future: Take in the past to understand the future with dozens of multi-layered Atari easter eggs and nods to the way-back era that started it all.

–Where No One Has Gone Before: Today’s stories of Atari’s early days are just that – stories. Explore an authentic recreation of the fabled Sunnyvale Atari studio and leave with your own tales!

–Pure Authenticity: Enjoy an adventure full of friendly faces, characters, and retro games from Atari’s library of classic favorites and rare treasures.
