In the near future, a company called Genoq has developed a range of bioweapons that have escaped into the company’s headquarters. Your character is a jetpack courier that has to deliver an important package to Genoq’s leading researcher, Derrida, and is oblivious to the danger until the doors lock behind him. He has to fight his way through ten floors of grenade turrets, electrified panels, laser fences and all the mutant bioweapons to deliver his package and find out how to escape. On the way to the top, he will meet survivors of the attack and will need to communicate with them to find clues and rescue them for extra lives.
Of course, that is exactly what a courier’s job is like in 2021!
D/Generation is one of many retro titles from the last 30 years that will be coming to the Atari VCS in 2021, along with a number of re-interpreted retro-classics, and retro-inspired indie games. If you are a retro fan, you are in for a treat.
