Retrobooster is still under development, just like this webpage. Keep checking the blog for updates. To help it get published, vote for it on Steam Greenlight.
When evil aliens invade the galaxy, it is up to you and your fleet of decommissioned starfighters to drive them back. Pilot your nimble thrust ship through tense battles and tight spaces. Hone your piloting skills, rescue survivors, solve puzzles, blow up gobs of baddies, witness the horrors that lurk in the darkest corners of the galaxy, and make it out alive.
Retrobooster is a survival shooter of old school proportions. Do you like games that don't challenge you until level four? Well, forget about it. Retrobooster will not be soft for the first few levels just to make you feel good. And the aliens will not scratch their heads, waiting for you to blast them. Why? Because when you're all grown up, toiling on some dirty asteroid a parsec past nowhere, and the real alien apocalypse happens, you need to be ready.

Is it safe for my kids?
There is violence in Retrobooster, but nothing approaching the realism of contemporary war games. In Retrobooster you can:
Splatter vicious galactic monsters with many legs (and juicy guts)
Crush tiny people (with blood)
Set tiny people on fire
When Retrobooster is further along, I will attempt to better describe its (im)maturity level with images.
Is anything missing?
This webpage will grow and change as Retrobooster approaches completion. Please contact me if you think of other information you would like to see here.
This is a recent in-development video of Retrobooster, which shows some bullet hell action.
