A quick teaser for: Run Die Run Again

Tony Barnes said this about the quick teaser video, "Solo independent development can be tough, but one fun thing about being solo & indie is I can do what I want, when I want. So, I decided to make some music and cut a short teaser for RDRA, just because it's Wednesday."

RetroNinja announced their upcoming game: Run Die Run Again

Tony Barnes in speaking about RDRA said, "I wanted to make something I could do largely on my own, and while trying to figure out what that was, I was playing a lot of Destiny, Trials, Super Meat Boy and Titanfall 2.  I thought; First-person Super Meat Boy, now there's a game I think would be fun, a game I could make by myself."

Run Die Run Again (RDRA) is a fast-paced first-person precision platformer, where every inch of the environment is out to kill you! A speed-running, trial and error endurance contest, where fast reactions and acrobatic dodging skills are rewarded.

Tony Barnes launches RetroNinja, Inc., an independent game developer, focused on arcade-oriented action/adventure games on all leading platforms, in sunny Orange County, California. 

"It really is about time," says Barnes about RetroNinja.  "There are a lot of people who like certain types of games, many are the types of games I've made, but other companies aren't focusing on those types of games.  RetroNinja does!  RetroNinja is all about those types of fun, visceral, action-oriented experiences. If you look at my past catalog, it can give you an idea of what kinds of games RetroNinja will bring, as well as some surprises."

Inspired by the likes of Treasure, Platinum and Housemarque; RetroNinja's mission is to feed the gamers that want action/arcade games, exactly what they want, combining old school flavor with new school cooking.
