PIXEL RIPPED 1995 is finally out on Oculus and Steam VR

In these times of stay-at-home confinement, we may not go out as much as we'd like, but at least we can invite you to a multi-dimensional VR trip back in time to 1995, an era that planted the roots of gaming for a whole generation. PIXEL RIPPED 1995 is out this Thursday on Steam, Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest. The game is expected to release on PSVR in few months.

With PIXEL RIPPED 1995 we at ARVORE want to transport players back to a moment in their lives that they may have almost forgotten — but that they certainly cherish — when they were playing with their 16 and 32 bit systems, challenging their friends at the arcade, or checking out the latest release at the local rental shop. Through VR, we can relive these nostalgic experiences, and remind ourselves where we come from as video game lovers. The game also resonates with the younger generations of gamers, who can discover how life as a gamer in the 90s was in some ways different, and in other ways exactly the same as today, because who didn’t want at least one more try when their parents asked them to shut down the console and go to bed?

Our game is a nostalgic trip back to 1995 in a Virtual Reality love letter to classic gaming. Video game hero Dot recruits the help of the best gamer of the year, an unassuming 9-year-old boy named David, to face challenges together through the world of 2D games and the very first 3D games. They will venture through homages to the best games and genres from the 1990s, like action RPGs, brawlers, platformers, space shooters, and racing games – all while dodging the indignation of miffed parents through multiple environments. With 6 fully original levels that each feel like entirely different games, PIXEL RIPPED 1995 is an incredible journey for both VR and retro gamers.
