Shakedown: Hawaii is the first new game from developer Brian Provinciano in seven years. Its predecessor, Retro City Rampage, was first released in 2012, before coming to almost every conceivable video game platform, including the PSP, and, in a stripped down form, MS-DOS. The game was a wonderful love letter to pop culture, the Grand Theft Auto series, and 8-bit gaming.

Vblank began development on Shakedown: Hawaii in 2015. The follow-up builds upon the first game with improved visuals that evoke the 16-bit era, a vast open world to explore, and gameplay that combines fast-paced action with an empire building simulation.

The extended gameplay trailer gives a taste of what’s in store.
