Reminder: 2012’s First Indie Retro Powerhouse Comes Out Wednesday for Absolutely Free

on January 8, 2012 2:00 PM

A couple months ago I posted an announcement trailer for Abobo’s Big Adventure, a love letter to all the NES games that influenced our 80’s childhoods. The game looked to have potential not because it was a tribute, but because the amount of care and actual thought to all facets of the game was genuine; the total package looked legit, and not like the equivalent of fan fiction.

Good news for those fellow retro/indieheads salivating for a release date; it seems like Team Bobo has already announced that it’ll be available on January 11, this Wednesday, for the astoundingly efficient price of zero dollars. I will most definitely be sure to play it as soon as it comes out and have a review for you folks, but hell, it’s free; why not just download it in three days and show the Team Bobo guys some love?
