Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland Preview


When you hear the phrase Limited Run Games what do you think of? Typically, many will think that there is a limited number of collector’s editions available of a certain game.

Others may think that the place selling the game is the only place where you can buy it. These two assumptions are rather typical if you are not a part of the gaming community.

For those unaware, Limited Run Games is a retailer that sells special editions of games with a limited quantity available. At PAX East, Limited Run Games invited us to check out two of the upcoming games that they will be selling special edition of Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland.

If you have not heard of either of these games, that is fair. Both of the games are fairly obscure based on namesake, but one has a renowned franchise behind it.


At PAX West during the Indie Mix, we got to check out Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland. During the mix, guests could try out the different demos.

The Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland demo was styled like old NES/Sega Genesis games with blocky graphics and 2D side-scrolling gameplay. At PAX East, we got to try the Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland demo but this time with a twist.

In the PAX East demo, guests could try playing Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland as one of the four iconic babies (Phil, Lil, Chuckie, or Tommy). Each baby had their own abilities.


Each baby has their own jumping strength and block-moving ability. What really stood out about the demo was that you could switch between modern graphics and a retro style by changing it in the game’s settings.

The fact that Wall Ride made not one but two versions of the game is very significant; it is one thing when the game is being remastered to the modern era and the developer keeps both the old graphics while providing new graphics, but Wall Ride has created a game with both styles of graphics for fans to enjoy.

The core gameplay took a bit to get used to since it is a platformer with old-style of gameplay. What made the demo a bit harder to play was the person showing off the game wanted to switch back and forth between the two graphic styles.

Yes, it was cool to check out both styles, but it would have been better to play through the demo in one style the first time and then play through it again in the other style.

It will be interesting to see how Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland turns out when it is fully released. If you want to check out the game, there is a demo on Steam.

Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is launching sometime in 2024 for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, PS4, and PS5.
