Red Rust, by indie developer ArtSource Digital, is coming the Atari VCS.

It’s the year 1984 and Soviet KGB agent Red has been sent to the West on a secret mission. Attractive, tough, even brutal, Red sets forth on a journey that exposes her to boss battles, plot twists, and just maybe some emotional discovery.

Red Rust is a joyous mash-up of styles. A side-scrolling kick and punch battler than mixes in shooting. Flying and driving levels that not only change the pace of the game, but the orientation. A visual approach inspired by 16-bit hits of the 90s, but updated with lush graphics, cut scenes, and the smooth game mechanics made possible by the Unity game engine.
