Mighty Rabbit Studio’s ‘Saturday Morning RPG’: The Ultimate 80’s Homage

We don’t regularly feature computer games here at the Tru:Teknology Files, but when we recently discovered Mighty Rabbit Studios’ latest iOS project, we had to stop and take note. Tentatively titled ‘Saturday Morning RPG’, the game, which is due on iPhone early next year, squeezes every last drop of inspiration from the classic cartoons of the 80’s, with tributes to the likes of GIJoe, Mask, He-man, Thundercats and more scattered throughout it’s lovingly crafted 16bit world.

Thankfully, Saturday Morning RPG’s gameplay draws from slightly more modern material, with the developers citing recent Final Fantasy titles, Pokemon, Paper Mario, and even the recent XBLA smash Costume Quest as major influences. To mimic the nature of Saturday morning T.V, the game will be released in episodic installments across several weeks with each episode lasting around an hour.

Mighty Rabbit have just released this trailer to whet the appetite- check their blog here for new updates and information on what could possibly become one of our favourite iPhone apps to date.
