Blendo Games, the mix masters behind Thirty Flights of Loving, are cracking into the retro indie era with Quadrilateral Cowboy, a game about 20th century cyberpunk hacking due out this year. Quadrilateral Cowboy involves sneaky sabotage, tiny cameras with legs and a train of some kind, as demonstrated in the above video. Blendo provides a few more details in its description:

"Hacking. Dial tone. Cyberpunk. Cassette decks. Robotics. Espionage. Sabotage. Suitcase decks. Simulators. Brainbox injectors. When you have a top-of-the-line hacking deck armed with a 56.6k modem and a staggering 256k RAM, it means just one thing: You answer only to the highest bidder."

In the 90s, the highest bidder could easily be Wal-Mart. So that's how they get those prices so low.Gallery: Quadrilateral Cowboy
