Project Blue, the retro cyberpunk adventure from 8-BIT LEGIT, ToggleSwitch and FrankenGraphics on October 6.

Featuring 256 screens, a 22-track musical score, three modes of play and “plenty of secrets” and it looks like a retro experience perfect for Fall.

“For originally being for the NES, with all its humble graphics capabilities, I set my mark on chiseling out an unusual amount of detail to the sprawling levels.” said FrankenGraphics. “One thing I think I can be proud of is that despite its simple to pick up controls, the skill roof of this game goes way beyond. At the start it’s good enough to find health containers to help push through an unlucky streak, but after a while you start to figure out how to navigate the map more safely, efficiently… then elegantly… and it feels quite rewarding.”

About Project Blue:

Hidden in the outskirts of the Dezone, a secret bio-weapons lab is conducting unspeakable experiments on the homeless youth of that concrete wasteland. The most promising test subject, codenamed PROJECT BLUE, manages to break free following an overly successful bio-energy augmentation. Now it’s up to YOU to help Blue escape from Theta Lab and bring down the shadowy multinational conglomerate running Neo Hong Kong!

Put your skill, wits and reflexes to the test as you jump, swim, and blast your way through four massive areas in this exciting new action platformer.
