Retro City Rampage Demake Heading To MS-DOS

Retro-City-Rampage-MS-DOS-Port-AnnouncedOne of the more recent neo-retro releases which has been worth picking up is VBlank’s Retro City Rampage. Having originally started life as a Grand Theft Auto clone for the Nintendo NES, indie developer is digging deeper into his roots and porting the popular title down to MS-DOS.

Although seeming to be nothing more than an elaborate prank on the gaming community, Brian Provinciano really is bringing his pixelated hit to the MS-DOS operating system. Requiring 4MB of RAM and 3.7MB of HDD space to run, those with 486 setups at the ready will no doubt be lusting after this upcoming release.

While the only screenshot revealed of the game so far is a nostalgic looking title screen, we’ll no doubt be in good hands - especially given Provinciano’s Nintendo NES port of the game was nothing short of incredible. Those who happen to own the PC and Mac versions of the game will be able to download this MS-DOS port for free upon release.
