With limited edition physical releases been all the rage right now, I can guarantee you none come like this! The Neo-Retro series by Huey Games not only brings you amazing games like Droid Assault but it comes packaged on a nostalgically beautiful (dare I say sexy?) cassette tape.
Yep, you heard that right. An actual cassette tape. Don’t worry though you don’t need to dust off that C64 tape player. The Huey games Neo Retro collection is not only gorgeous to see and hold but it is also pretty clever too.
For those of us old enough to remember cassette tapes, there is no fumbling around with a pencil to load the tape. The cassette is actually a clever little way of hiding a USB stick. A USB stick that not only has the game but a while host of goodies and extras on there to boot!
The beautiful cassette tape comes fully loaded with not only Droid Assault but FIVE indie games demo’s, The original soundtrack for Droid Assault and Hyper Sentinel as well as a digital collection of hi-definition retro and Neo-Retro artwork and over 2000 page scans of magazine covers, adverts, charts, interviews, maps, tips, contests, previews and reviews of Hewson games
Huey Games ain’t done yet though! On top of all this content, each cassette comes shrink wrapped and carry the number 001 so you can display your collection proudly.
This Limited Edition physical release is the first of four initially planned releases and is going fast. Huey Games reached their Kickstarter goal in just 48 hours! At the time of writing the campaign currently stands at £6,387 of its £5000 goal.
If you’re a fan of Neo-Retro you need to head over to the Droid Assault Kickstarter campaign right now and back it whilst you still can.
