A re-created video game has been making the rounds of social media this week, and the creator is calling it a great way to “recall the good times”.
“It’s about the nostalgia of gaming, not the gameplay, so I’ve been playing a lot of old games to get to that,” said the user who goes by the name of ‘The Game of Life’.
“The idea is to recreate a game from a past time,” he said.
“For example, you can recreate a time when you played a board game and you didn’t realise you had to get your character to a certain position to win.
Or, you know, you played with your friends and one of them was a robot.”
You’re playing through a game where you don’t know what the consequences of what you do are, so it’s a little bit of an adventure.
“The user, who is also a game developer and game developer friends of mine, has also shared his video game creations on YouTube.”
I’m currently working on a sequel to the first game, but it’s really cool to play this game again,” he wrote.”
The game has a lot more variety, so you can go from being an ordinary person to the smartest robot, or the most cunning, or just the most amazing robot.
“The video game re-made video game also has a retro theme to it, with a retro-styled character and a vintage-inspired soundtrack.”
So far, the characters are the same but the sound is really different,” he explained.”
It looks like a video game, in my opinion.
It has retro sounds.
“But despite the retro-style sound and retro-theme, the game’s creator also said it is not a retelling of a classic game.”
A lot of the game has very little to do with the original,” he added.”
What we’re trying to do is make the game accessible, which is a lot harder to do than a rehash.
“The game can be played in its original state or a remake of a game that was made for the original.
The user said he was also interested in finding the origin of the original game.
