The 8-bit and 16-bit video game ages are popular among indie developers who look to recreate games from a bygone era. Less common are games that mimic platforms like the Atari 2600. Grizzland opts for the latter.
The game only features five colors and a resolution of 128×96 pixels, so it’s truly an old-school experience. Here’s more on the game from the developer:
Grizzland features a true open-world setting focused on exploration, old-school questing without pointers and numerous secret areas to discover. Players will need to build up their skills, use items and unlock new abilities to overcome the enemy dinos that stand in their way. With so much player freedom, Grizzland not only offers a wealth of content but also myriad ways to experience it, all presented in nostalgic retro style.
By the way, it’s coming to PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. Eastasiasoft is publishing the game in North America.
