Something to think about. So many games today are obsessed with the retro look. 8BitBoy, the first game on today’s list is a decent example – but it’s just one in a long line of tribute projects. With blocky sprites and limited colour palettes, these games are often described as “love letters” to times-gone-by.
My question today: In 20 years’ time, will we see games that look like Civilization – Beyond Earth, EA Sports UFC, Metro Redux or Batman: Arkham Knight labelled as “retro”? What will the games of 2034 look like? Where’s my cup of tea?
