Retro/Grade is a rhythm game with a unique twist - time is flowing backwards!  While it looks like a shoot 'em up in reverse, you must un-fire attacks to the beat of the music while avoiding enemy fire in order to save the space/time continuum. Otherwise, a temporal anomaly will rip the universe a new time-hole! It is available now for PS3 and will be released on Steam on March 20th!

The game features:
  • 10 dazzling worlds with unique enemies, epic boss fights, and amazing effects
  • A campaign with 6 difficulties and 130 different challenge levels
  • 11 unlockable ships including characters from other indie games like Super Meat Boy and Octodad
  • Over 50 minutes of chiptune inspired electronic music by Skyler McGlothlin aka Nautilis
  • Navigate your ship with a guitar controller! (The PC version supports Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii Guitars. The PS3 version only supports PS3 compatible guitars)
  • An unlockable DJ mode that allows you to mix the tracks in the game
