Hudson showed off a little more of its retro upgrade action video game platformer at New York Comic Con this weekend. I had the privilege of playing with Peter, the lead developer of the game, in co-op. His brain was a wee bit fried from demoing the game all day long (he had Bomberman, too. It was a crazy day), but he did share some nifty things about the game. For starters,...
