bluffman’s retro Artifact Adventure series returns with a new title. Artifact Adventure Gaiden DX will be available through Steam and Playism at the end of the month.
Artifact Adventure emulated the impressive graphic prowess of the NES, and its sequel builds on that by emulating a later device. However, that device is the Game Boy, and thus offers even less of a palette to work with.
Artifact Adventure raids RPGs from the 8-bit era for inspiration, aesthetics, and artifacts. Some may say it belongs in a museum, while others would argue it belongs in a (Steam) library.
