Huey Games Rewinds The Cassette For Droid Assault

Huey Games have recenlty announced that the Kickstarter campaign for a limited physical run of Puppygames arcade shooter Droid Assault has been fully funded in the first 48 hours. 

It will come in the form of a Collectors USB Cassette and is the first in a series of specially-selected Neo Retro titles to launch on this unique physical format.

Rob Hewson, CEO & Creative Director, Huey Games Ltd has said “Not only does the Collectors USB Cassette slot seamlessly into their existing collection, it also comes loaded with a bunch of bonus features, something which other limited physical run formats cannot offer.''

 In addition to DRM-free Windows, the Linux and Mac versions of Droid Assault, bonus features on the Collectors USB Cassette include indie game demos, soundtrack albums, artwork collections and a retro magazine archive.

With the campaign now fully funded, Huey Games plan is to expand the capacity of the USB drive to add even more features, starting with a seven-part mini-documentary about Hewson games, the 1980s company ran by Huey Games Chairman Andrew Hewson.

"I'm thrilled - THRILLED I tell you - about the Collectors USB Cassette release." said Caspian Prince of Puppygames, developer of Droid Assault. "It's a great way to give digital games an extra lease of life, and as a child of the 8-bit era, it's really exciting to see a game we developed in homage to the era get a fittingly retro physical release".

Droid Assault is expected to release July 2019
