Pixel Ripped 1989 is an award-winning, multidimensional homage to retro gaming and is a highly original take on the 8-bit generation only possible through the power of Virtual Reality.
A game within a game, Pixel Ripped 1989 is packed full of surprises as you play 2nd Grade Student Nicola who tries to help Dot and her pixelated friends save the world from Cyblin Lord on her handheld console, all while trying not to get caught by her teachers when sat in class.
Launched in July 2018, and with over 17 award wins and nominations, Pixel Ripped 1989 is a wacky multi-dimensional homage to the early days of gaming. The player embarks on a journey into the screen of a classic video game and beyond. Set in the era of portable 8-bit consoles, this game-within-a-game follows the adventures of Dot, an in-game character who sees her world torn apart by the Cyblin Lord, a villain able to break through the video game screen and invade the real world.
In the game, the player inhabits Nicola, a second-grade student who must help Dot save both realities from this menace by facing challenges in the retro-gaming 2D world, all while distracting the cranky teacher and escaping from the furious headmaster in her own 3D world.
