Rex Rocket, a slick slice of platforming righteousness made by the good people at Castle Pixel, gleefully taps the vein of classic video games. Wrought in the style of Mega Man and Metroid, but embracing the bright, black-lined coloring of 16-bit era games, it pits its space faring hero against deadly spikes, automatons, and other threats to scientists in the future. Joystiq Streams cannot resist such challenges.
We're streaming a solid hour of Rex Rocket starting at 4PM EST on Joystiq.com/Twitch. Creators Tyler Bud and Rob Maher will be on hand to talk about the game and hang out in the chat. Anthony John Agnello will be trying to survive the robot onslaught while Alexander Sliwinski asks your questions on air.
Joystiq Streams broadcasts live on Tuesdays and Thursday at 4PM EST on Joystiq.com/Twitch, but other streams go live all the time, so make sure to follow us on Twitch.
