Homebrew Atari Jaguar pioneers Reboot are back again with another release for the fabled 64-bit console. Degz is their upcoming title which pays homage to Konami's granddaddy of the horizontal scrolling shooter genre, Scramble. To mix up their faithful re-imagining of the 1981 arcade game, the developers have included a humourous pop culture Easter Egg.
Believe it or not, the YouTube meme Nyan Cat is set to make a prominent appearance in Degz as a playable character. Seeing the pop-tart bodied cat in pixelated form is one thing, but hearing a chiptune rendition of the Nyan Cat theme tune as you blast your way though the game is not something you get to enjoy every day.
On a more serious note this new release from Reboot which follows their last effort, Downfall, also comes accompanied with a belting chiptune soundtrack. Degz is due to make its first appearance at the upcoming Swedish Atari demoscene party Sommarhack 2012, before being made available to the public.
