Retro/Grade is a videogame developed by 24 Caret Games. The game is about ace pilot, Rick Rocket, who must repeat his last space battle in reverse in order to protect the space time continuum. The game play is rhythm-based and timed to original music by Skyler McGlothlin. In January 2009, it was nominated for two Independent Games Festival awards: Excellence in Audio and Excellence in Design.
The gameplay is a hybrid between a rhythm game and a shooter. Players control a spacecraft, like main classical shooters, such as Aegis Wing, but the entire game is timed the music, similar to modern rhythm games.. Players will be able to play the game either with a standard game pad or a guitar controller..
The game has been in development since late 2008. The idea for a backwards shooter came whilst creating a debugging mode for another shooter they were working on to pitch to developers. The debugging mode allows them to reverse time to repeat and test sections of gameplay..
