Retro City Rampage developer Vblank Entertainment updated the game to version 1.11 today, adding an enhanced graphics option and official support for mods.
The new visual mode, called Retro+, brings in real-time soft shadows and twice as many colors; you can check out examples in the gallery above. Purists can still elect to play with the original 8-bit-style graphics. Modders will be able to craft new objects like vehicles, as well as characters, fonts and color palettes. Today's update adds a mod loading option directly to the game's main menu.
Vblank also put the Windows PC version of Retro City Rampage on sale today for $3.74, 75 percent off its usual price. The discount is available through Steam as well as the game's website; it will run until 1 p.m. ET June 26.
