Happy Birthday, Abobo’s Big Adventure!

Happy Birthday, Abobo's Big Adventure! Abobo smash birthday cake!

One year ago today, we released Abobo's Big Adventure - the game of my dreams. It's been an absolutely incredible experience so far, and it really puts a smile on my face to still see so many people talking about it, playing it, and laughing at it so much. 2012 is a year I'll never forget. Thanks to everybody for the tremendous support!

If you'd like to learn about the tremendous amount of work that went into the making of Abobo's Big Adventure, you can read all about it here.

Happy birthday, Abobo! I still think it's the greatest NES game never made.

Hi RoG, I have played your Abobo game on-line and I have to admit that when he eats a villian to get a "power-up" I laugh every single time. Thanks for all the entertainment on your website, be it an article on dollar store finds, a 1980's movie review, Max Burbank crying, Santa Fu, or anything else listed.

Abobo says "Kick any other 8-bit game's ass!"

Why on earth didn't my calendar have Abobo Day listed? I'm going to call them right now to bitch.

I think ABA is the best damn game of 2012, be it console or online.

The Contra level is my favorite. Spread the love, motherfucker!

Congrats! Abobo's Big Adventure is a great game. On the sea world level when I saw what you have to do to beat it, I laughed like a drain. Nice references to Contra, Kung Fu, and Double Dragon...All I played as a kid was Nintendo and your 8-bit parody brought back good memories (although what you've done here looks waaaay better than the games you're parodying.

Congrats! What an amazing game and year it's been! I remember being so psyched as it was being developed, and then the excitement upon it's release! I've been meaning to mention this to you, but Jeff Ryan's FABULOUS book
"Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America" directly mentions Abobo in the final chapter or two of his book, so even before Abobo was a year old he's made such progress! Congrats again!

Congrats! I first heard of it through a YouTuber called DeceasedCrab. I've given this game to as many friends as possible to spread the word! So fun!

We were laughing at the Annie mating part. Nyuk nyuk.

Congratulations on such a truly awesome game! I could hardly wait for its release last year. I think retro indie/homebrews like this are some of the best games out these days. Thank you for it!

Without doubt one of the best indie game ever released. And of course the best nostalgia tribute. I-Mockery never disappointed me in the gaming section. Well done to all people who worked at this marvelous game.
