Saturday Morning RPG is now available on Steam!
We should be launching on Steam this month!
Description
Release date: September 2013
Saturday Morning RPG is an episodic role-playing game set in world heavily inspired
by 1980s Saturday morning cartoons. Players take the role of Martin "Marty" Michael
Hall, an average high-school student who has just been granted an incredible power.
This power leads him to attract the ire of the world's most notorious villain, Commander
Hood.

Tech Specs:
  • Episodic Gameplay: The story and gameplay of Saturday Morning RPG takes
    place across several episodes, each of which tells a complete self-contained story.
    Players can play any episode in any order, at any time! All of your stats and items
    carry between episodes. It’s a unique spin on the tried and true New Game Plus
    mode. On top of that, small decisions made in some episodes will carry forth into
    others – adding a layer of replay to each episode.

  • Active Turn-Based Combat: Saturday Morning RPG draws quite a bit of
    inspiration of games like Nintendo’s Paper Mario series. Battles in the game are
    turn-based, but the player is always participating by actively defending against
    attacks and completing reflex tests to power up their own assaults.

  • Defeat Enemies With Regular Stuff: Marty fights all his battles in the game
    by channeling magic through everyday objects. Use a pack of striped gum to
    summon rainbow zebras that trample your foes – or call upon a transforming
    action figure to morph you into a semi-truck!

  • Nostalgia Fueled Everything: Everything in Saturday Morning RPG centers on
    nostalgia. Marty receives his magical abilities thanks to a certain kind of garish
    plastic notebook, he can equip scratch ‘n sniff stickers to get statistical boosts, and
    he’ll traverse worlds inspired by the entire gamut of Saturday morning cartoons.

  • Endless Battle Mode: Take on wave after wave of enemies in an endless survival
    mode where resource management becomes everything!

  • Quests: Each episode of the game features several optional side-quests that the
    player can complete to earn extra items and experience.

  • Radical Soundtrack: Saturday Morning RPG features a full soundtrack from
    legendary composers Vince DiCola (Rocky IV, Transformers: The Movie) and
    Kenny Meriedeth (contributor for Duck Tales, Power Rangers, X-Men, and
    more).

  • Built For PC: The version of Saturday Morning RPG that hits Steam will
    embrace the platform completely! Players can pick between three control
    methods: keyboard, mouse, or controller (or a combination of any of those).
    We’ve built the controls to be intuitive for each choice – everything from the
    touch screen version of the game will be completely controllable through any
    of those methods. This is not a lazy iOS port – we’re gamers ourselves and we
    pride ourselves on releasing quality games!

  • Steamworks Integration: Unlock over 60 different Steam achievements!


QUOTES:

ZTGD[www.ztgd.com] 9/10 Editor's Choice Award
"For $6, Saturday Morning RPG is a steal for anyone who grew up with 80′s cartoons. The references will keep you smiling and the interesting combat will keep you playing. I can’t suggest it enough."

Hardcore Gamer[www.hardcoregamer.com] 8/10
"Nailing those references and that innocently-entertaining atmosphere is precisely what makes Saturday Morning RPG so special. If you merely existed in the eighties, or have experienced things from that time, you’ll likely appreciate most every single bit of this love-letter to the era."

Touch Arcade Review 4/5 Touch Arcade Forums Game of the Week
“Saturday Morning RPG is as close to a physical manifestation of my childhood as I am
going to find, without a truckload of Pixiesticks.”

Gamezebo 4.5/5
“Finding all of the references is certain to be a favorite talking point for gamers
too. Mighty Rabbit did an excellent job working in tributes to all kinds of intellectual
properties from the 80s. It’s a satirical take, for sure, but one that has players laughing
along with their childhood memories, not at them.”

Pocket Gamer Review 9/10 Gold Award
“A heart-felt love letter to Japanese role-playing games and ’80s popular culture,
Saturday Morning RPG is likely to prove irresistible to anyone over the age of 30.”

Screw Attack
“This is seriously the coolest RPG that you need to pay attention to!”
“It will completely change your mind about mobile gaming as a platform.”

EDGE Magazine 7/10
“If you’re the right age to appreciate the irony of an over-powered Care Bear attack,
Saturday Morning RPG is going to take you right back to your distant past.”

USA Today – Portable Picks: ‘Saturday Morning RPG’
“The combat feels real good. Attacks are easy to execute, and the game provides plenty
of power-ups and magic spells to mix up the action.”

Eurogamer
“The real joy, though, is that undiluted hit of nostalgia. Even without official cartoon
licences, Saturday Morning RPG captures the spirit of school-free mornings spent in
Turtles pyjamas nursing a bowl of Coco Pops and basking in the glow of the TV.”

The Guardian
“Drawing inspiration from pretty much the full gamut of 80s, children's entertainment,
Saturday Morning RPG is a pixellated nostalgia trip for players of a certain age.”

Will this be releasing later today, or on friday? Just curious, mildly tense with anticipation and all that.

What does it say on the Groupees page....
Zipster Jan 22 @ 2:50pm 
If this was purchased off the Groupees Retro bundle will we also receive a steam key based off this? Thanks!
Revolverhawk Jan 22 @ 1:51pm 
Thanks, I appreciate the info. Good Luck. :)

@Revolverhawk It's a single purchase for all the episodes. $5.99 was not an option for pricing when we went to set it, so the Steam version is currently priced at $6.99 which was the closest choice without going to cheaper. We will launch with a discount, so it should actually launch somewhere around $4.99.

The extra dollar will be well worth it for the extra Steam features (achievements, trading cards, leaderboards, stats, etc.).

Nice job capturing the saturday morning cartoon vibe! I always looked forward to them as a kid; this takes me back.

Congrats on getting greenlit, I have been waiting a long time for this game. What will the cost for this game be? Is it 6 dollars per episode, or just 6 dollars flat? I need to know to budget the cost.
