David Pittman makes note to #MinorKey’s Super Win the Game, #sequel to their 2012 freeware title You Have to Win the Game. If you cannot recall it, or you have never heard of it, YHTWTG is a #platformer with a curvy, visual filter reminiscent of the chunky monitors of yore. Sequel Super Win the Game retreats even further from HD, by sporting an (optional) CRT TV effect. It’s a warm, nostalgic-looking game, with a trusting, open-ended structure that reminds me of the NES Legend of Zelda titles. It looks ridiculously amazing.
The CRT effect’s default settings seem a little aggressive, you can tweak every element of the visual filter with an extensive selection of settings, or turn it off entirely if you’d prefer the raw pixels. Compared to similar filters, however, Super Win the Game’s TV effects are top notch, and evocative of my days gaming on a 8-bit system through an RF cable back in the day.
