"I think Pixel Ripped 1989 is a work by genius...thank you for making such an ingenious use of VR tech to create an amazing, never experienced, imaginative experience." Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios at Sony Interactive Entertainment.

“I love how different it is and the nostalgia aspects and it looks wonderful, I am in love with the presentation. It is a really cool game. This is one of the most original VR games I have played in a while.” Ian Higton, Eurogamer

“Sound design and soundtrack really set apart Pixel Ripped 1989, it really is transportive in a way that just has this whole vibe around it. It has just a different and interesting game mechanic to be within a VR experience and playing completely different classic games, between universes and contexts, etc.” Kent Bye, VoicesOfVR
