Inspired by the lo-fi video games of the 80s and 90s, the CXR Agency team emulated the classics through carefully constructed graphics, sounds, and game structure. With custom-designed, pixelated graphics, an array of sound effects, and a simple game experience, the end product was an ode to the games of yesteryear – accessible with the ease of the modern day.
Designed with simplicity and retro gaming in mind, the team wanted to be sure that the game didn’t sacrifice user immersion for authenticity. The CXR Agency team made sure to include enough gameplay elements – such as enemies, rewards and smooth transitions – to create an engaging experience for the user.
With just one month to create the entire experience, the design and development teams worked in tandem to reduce inefficiencies and iterate as quickly as possible. From developing perspective to perfecting sprites and loops, every challenge was quickly overcome.
