Apple, Google, and the rest of technology tried to kill Grudge. He's coming back better than never.

For those that may not know, the amazing Retro Knight: The Relics of General Importance can no longer be updated with new adventures thanks to Apple and Google's TOS. I spent three years building that beast, and now its living on life support. The furthest you can get in the game is to Level 4, and then sadly it just ends. I hope you still enjoy playing it as it was a labor of love, and I hope it can still live on your devices for years to come.
However, I am happy to say that Grudge isn't going away. In fact, I'm going to work hard to make sure he never leaves.
Coming some time in 2022, Grudge will leave your mobile devices and smash down in your web browsers via a fully emersive HTML5 RPG. Grudge is getting a new boat, some new friends, and is leaving Kingdomland to protect the many islands now under attack by the evil robot empire of Appilamia, the cloud-based kingdom of Gootopia, and the money-hungry titans of the Amazonalburg, all of which think they are far superior to the simple folks of the peaceful islands.
But you crave retro games, right? So do I. You have no idea. Each Island nation is a parody of a classic retro game much like the areas of Kingdomland. I'm going to stretch them out to small nations, and I'm just going to go on and on and on with new areas until my brain pops. Mario, Zelda, Mega Man, Castlevania, Metroid, and Bubble Bobble are only the beginning as I plan on diving deeper into the catelogs to bring you Sonic, Bionic Commando, Clu Clu Land, Pac Man, Dig Dug, Frogger, and even suggestions from you!
In addtion, Retro Knight: The Islands of Forced Obsoletion will be more of a simulation like Animal Crossing and less of an RPG like Zelda. Your goal will not be to directly beat the game but rather to explore the vast oceans, unlock new islands, gather new weapons and armors, and even unlock as swath of new mini games that may or may not be direct parodies of the video games I'm already parodying on the islands themselves? Can Grudge golf? Drive a race car? Shoot ducks? Maybe Grudge will come up with some new things to do apart from smashing up monsters. Oh, and yes, you can still set up your house and make it pretty. Maybe not as crazy as Animal Crossing, but close enough.
So what do I want from you? Nothing but your constant support, and I'm not talking about money. Retro Knight: The Islands of Forced Obsoletion will be 100% free always and forever. Retro Knight has always been a labor of love with no desire to turn it into some money-making scheme. So with that in mind, send me some love back via Twitter or Discord. Tell me you want to play the next Retro Knight, a game which I hope none of those evil companies can screw with.
(Oh, and try playing a few games on my new site www.ArcadeFest.com . These games will all be connected, and you can log in to the website using your current Retro Knight log in. How neat is that?)
