Before you all think I've suddenly come down with dyslexia, don't be alarmed. This is just my way of announcing something truly unique is coming to the PS3 and PSN.
That is, Retro/Grade is something you might not be familiar with or used to in that it is what is called a "reverse time shooter." 24 karat games cofounder Matt Gilgenbach had this to say: "Retro/Grade the first game played entirely in reverse."
So what exactly is it? It is a side scrolling shooter, with a twist. In it, the hero, Rick rocket, is just save the universe. However, while doing this he has inadvertently caused a temporal anomaly and in doing so has reversed the flow of time. What this means is that you as the hero need to retrace and reverse the exact actions that you take.
Gilgenbach explains: "That means he has to get in the appropriate spaceplane from which he's shot was fired and press the shoot button at the appropriate time. As well, he must avoid blocking the path of the enemy shots as they return to the enemy's guns. If he blocks their path, it creates a paradox since he is stopping the shot before it was ever fired."
Sounds very interesting to me! Watch this space for more information.
