New Retro-Inspired 'Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland' Video Game Announced

A brand-new, retro-styled Rugrats video game has been announced!

Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland

Titled Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland, the game is "a baby-fresh take on retro-inspired gameplay-featuring a unique cooperative design, where kids and parents need to stick together to win! A baby's gotta do what a baby's gotta do," according to the game's official description. "Everyone's favorite babies are back in action! When Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, and Lil see a commercial for the new Reptar video game, they pretend that they're in a video game of their own! Through the power of imagination, the babies transform Tommy's house into a video game world full of action, excitement, and adventure!"

According to the game’s description, it will feature “puzzle platforming combining beloved gameplay from the NES era with modem game design”.

It will also feature both single-player and 2-player co-op modes, and will include “cameos of beloved characters from the TV show”.

While the version on PC and modern consoles will be able to run the NES-style version of the game, it will also include an HD graphics option, which obviously doesn’t feature on the NES version. This replaces the NES sprites with hand-drawn characters and backgrounds, in the style of the actual animated series.

Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is being developed by Wallride Games and The MIX Games, and is the first title from a multi-game partnership between The MIX Games and Paramount. The MIX Games will publish fresh neo-retro games with classic mechanics built for today’s gamers both independently and in collaboration with awesome creative teams. The team also has games in different genres and original titles in development, and will support these multiplatform experiences throughout development, including financial, manufacturing, distribution, and marketing efforts. To help deliver a unique experience, launches from The MIX Games will feature limited edition hardware systems and collectibles through its longtime partnership with Limited Run Games, including funding contributions from Limited Run for initial releases.

Wallride Games previously released beat ’em up Jay & Silent Bob: Mall Brawl (also on both NES and modern systems).

Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is planned for a 2024 launch, and will be available on PC and consoles. The game will be sold both physically and digitally.

The title will be playable for the first time at this year's PAX East.

Here’s an overview of the game:

  • Join Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil on a wild journey full of imagination and wonder. Invite a baby buddy or go solo on a level-based, co-op adventure inspired by classic retro titles of the NES era, juice up with modern game design..
