And I'm a GameDev T-Rex working on a real video game about my life as an insatiable, rage-fueled devastator. But enough about me, let's talk about my game, which also happens to be about me...

Inspired by Classic 2D Metroidvanias, Relentless Rex is an Indie Tribute to Retro Action-Platforming

Here's the sales pitch— If METROID made sweet, sweet love with CONTRA, and nine months later their baby was raised by BIT.TRIP RUNNER (the family butler), that creation would be named RELENTLESS REX: THE VIDEO GAME! It's a claw-drawn, action-adventure platformer in which you help an assortment of characters explore and race through dangerous locations, using your environment, special power-ups/weapons, and the help of others to try (in vain) and escape my bloodthirsty jaws. But just when you think you're safe...
Now I've got you hooked, right?

Great, I love a human with confidence and decisiveness! Relentless Rex: The Game is coming to STEAM (PC and Mac) in 2021, and your support is "strongly encouraged" (remember I'm a T-Rex, and I know who you are). Sign up for my REX-mail list at info@RelentlessRex.com, and I'll let you know when the game launches. In the meantime, make sure to warn all your friends there's a T-Rex roaming their neighborhood, looking to pick off sleep-deprived, slow-reacting gamers that don't check me out on STEAM. Oh, and since I've been stalking YOU, you may as well stalk me back on Twitter!

Relentless Rex and the Synthwave Submarine: Best Metroidvania Game Ever Designed by a T-Rex?

Well of course it is! Inspired by 2D retro games like Castlevania, Metroid, and Contra, Chapter 1 of my game, "Relentless Rex and the Synthwave Submarine," is an indie love letter to action-platforming. Shoot and explore your way through the Synthwave Submarine: a dark, mysterious labyrinth, filled with beautiful pixel art creatures and slapping 80's synth. Discover rad weapons and escape the secret, underwater prison before the BDOC (Big Dino On Campus) finds you. Looking for the best metroidvania game ever designed by a T-Rex?
