Twenty-seven years in the making (developer Brian Provinciano's age), top-down adventure Retro City Rampage has released today on PS3 and PS Vita in North America and on PC (buy direct and get a free Steam or GOG code), Steam, and GOG worldwide for $14.99. European PlayStation owners will follow later this month, and Provinciano says the WiiWare and XBLA versions are "99.9% ready to go and to follow ASAP."

I'm rather keen on finding all the crossovers and cameos. Super Meat Boy, BIT.TRIP: Runner, Epic Meal Time, Minecraft, 'Spolsion Man are just a few I've noticed so far. Our editor Gnome has begun to explore the game in full and will provide his impressions later this week.

And how about that game music? We have Virt, Freaky DNA, and Norrin Radd to thank!
