Pixel Ripped 1995 only arrived last month for the PlayStation VR, offering a mix of retro gaming goodness in a virtual reality (VR) package. If you’ve not played the original then Perp Games has a special physical version coming called the ‘Pink Cassette Edition’ with lots of extras for collectors.
The ‘Pink Cassette Edition’ of Pixel Ripped 1989 will be limited to 1500 copies, containing the original videogame for PlayStation VR, a Pixel Ripped brand pink cassette USB containing the soundtrack, wallpapers and artwork. Plus a set of 3 post signed by series creator Ana Ribeiro. All of this will be housed in a 1980’s style videogame box for that extra retro feel.
To get hold of one, the special edition will be sold exclusively via Perp Games’ store for £29.99 GBP. The launch will take place on 25th August but pre-orders go live on the store today. UK gamers can order directly through the shop but for those outside the UK, you’ll need to send an email to email@example.com with your full address to receive a quote, including postage. Or if you just want a normal physical edition of Pixel Ripped 1989 then that’s available for £19.89 and won’t be limited.
Pixel Ripped 1989 launched back in 2018, offering a modern take on the boom in retro gaming. It’s a homage to the late ’80s era in which it is set, with a storyline involving Dot, a digital character trying to save her world from an evil goblin called the Cyblin Lord who wants to cause chaos. You play as Nicola, a videogame-obsessive who needs to use her ‘Gear Kid’ handheld console to try and beat him by controlling Dot.
In its review of Pixel Ripped 1989, VRFocus said: “Pixel Ripped 1989 is very much one of those quirky VR experiences some will love while others won’t see the point of it. VRFocus is very much in the former camp when it comes to this. Pixel Ripped 1989 offers a unique gameplay experience that’s hard to put down, combining the addictive elements of classic platformers with the immersive stylings of VR.”
With Pixel Ripped 1995 now out developer ARVORE plans on continuing the series covering more retro eras. As details of these are released, VRFocus will let you know.
