Unfortunately, Saturday Morning RPG has not sold nearly well enough for us to solely focus on it (it only makes ~$20 a day!). Most developers would call us stupid to continue working on a game that is selling that poorly, and frankly, we are a bit stupid – but we love the game and we love our fans so we’ve continued work on it, slowly, for the last two years. In that time we’ve had to focus on other projects (Breach & Clear, Breach & Clear Deadline, and Fat Chicken) to pay the bills – but we’re still slowly creating new content for our first baby, Saturday Morning RPG.

Without further ado, say hello to Saturday Morning RPG Episode 5: Spaced Out!

In the newest episode of Saturday Morning RPG, Private Johnson receives a distress signal from a distant space station and sends Marty to investigate. Marty ultimately discovers that sinister things are going on in the space station and it’s up to him to stop them.

New Locations:

“Spaced Out” adds several new locations to Shadow Valley – notably, players can now enter Charles Cheezer. Inside of Charles Cheezer, Marty can play skee ball or “whack da mole” to earn tickets which can be exchanged for battle objects at the prize counter.

Marty can also explore Shadow Valley’s Jefferson Airport (soon to be renamed Jefferson Starport) – from there they can visit the episode’s main quest location (the space station).

New Battle Objects:

“Spaced Out” adds 13 new battle objects that will alter the way players can approach combat in both this episode or past episodes. Marty will also finally receive a reward if he chose to help May O’Reilly in Episode 2.

New objects (from top – left to right): Game Cartridges (all four have different attacks), Star Figure, Bear Claw, Puma Claw, Water Gun, Ooze, Moon Shoes, Hot Potato, Bottle Rocket, and Push Pin.

New Quests:

Episode 5 has more quests than any prior episode – in addition to allowing Marty to explore new areas, Marty can return to Shadow Valley High School (from Episode 2) and the Jean Claude Van Dam (from Episode 3) to undertake lengthy side quests.

Marty can also help out new friends like Robot De Niro, Braverawr, and Spade McFly or take quests from old standbys like Bobby Jett and Ben.

In “Spaced Out”, Marty can fight nine new enemies – many which bring interesting twists into Saturday Morning RPG’s active turn-based combat system. Marty finally gets to battle the Frakkles (mortal enemies of the Snoozers) and he also gets to come face to face with the fabled “Financier” (and his minions, the Draco Troopers).

“Spaced Out” will be the biggest episode of Saturday Morning RPG yet! We’re not ready to pin down a release date yet (with how slowly development is happening, it would be hard to!) – but keep your eyes peeled for an update on our official Twitter account (@TheMightyRabbit) or on the Saturday Morning RPG Facebook page.

Saturday Morning RPG Episode 5 will be a free update to owners of the game on PC, Mac, Linux, Android, the deluxe iOS version, and OUYA. It will be a $1.99 download in the free version on iOS.

Saturday Morning RPG will be coming to Wii U sometime shortly after the launch of Episode 5.

Apple App Store:

Breach & Clear was featured by Apple upon release in their “New & Noteworthy” category and the following week in the “What’s Hot” category.

Breach & Clear was the #1 Strategy game in 36 countries, and the #1 Action game in 14 countries.

Breach & Clear was ranked in the top 100 overall paid apps in 42 countries. It was also ranked within the top 20 games in 12 countries.

Press Coverage:


“…the moment-to-moment action is entertaining.”


“B&C manages to provoke a sense of tension that XCOM strategists will be both familiar with and thirsty for.” [Issue 268, October 2013]


“Elements from several of the most popular (and beloved) modern tactical franchises come together to create something no strategy fan should be without.”


“…with so much flexibility and room to play, I get the feeling that Breach & Clear could grow into something much bigger than four guys kicking down a door and looking in the right direction.”


“Part real-time, part turn-based, the gameplay in Breach & Clear mates precise planning with intense action. This mixture of meticulous planning and intense action make Breach & Clear truly unique.”


“Breach & Clear is one of the best tactical experiences we’ve seen in a game period — not just on mobile devices.”


“Breach and Clear distills the tactical shooter down to its essence.”


“Breach and Clear is a masterful game.”


“…when a smartly conceived plan comes together Breach & Clear is every bit as satisfying as Frozen Synapse or XCOM: Enemy Unknown…”


“…the game handles quite well in the game-play department.”


“Breach & Clear has kicked its way into a permanent spot on my iPad.”


“It’s up to you to decide how to use [your team] in the best manner possible, and it’s a lot of fun finding classes that work well together and that fit your style.”

Reviews of Saturday Morning RPG! http://www.mightyrabbitstudios.com/?p=440 http://www.mightyrabbitstudios.com/?p=440#comments Fri, 11 Oct 2013 04:01:14 +0000 kurt http://www.mightyrabbitstudios.com/?p=440 keep reading]]> Saturday Morning RPG has been getting a lot of coverage! Check out what people are saying about the game!

ZTGD Review


”For $6, Saturday Morning RPG is a steal for anyone who grew up with 80′s cartoons. The references will keep you smiling and the interesting combat will keep you playing. I can’t suggest it enough.”

Hardcore Gamer
“If you merely existed in the eighties, or have experienced things from that time, you’ll likely appreciate most every single bit of this love-letter to the era.”

iFanzine Review

“JRPGs have traditionally divorced the player from gameplay once commands are issued in a menu, but SMRPG keeps the player involved at all times through tap-activated defense, criticals, and special attack minigames. It says a lot that SMRPG is more enjoyable with just one character than most JRPGs are with three to six!”
“The sprites-on-3D style gives SMRPG a distinct visual flair, and it’s impossible to come away from this one without an appreciation for Vince DiCola’s and Kenny Meriedeth’s talent for scoring videogames.”

Touch Arcade Review

Touch Arcade Forums Game of the Week
“Saturday Morning RPG is as close to a physical manifestation of my childhood as I am going to find, without a truckload of Pixiesticks.”

App Spy Review

“Like any great RPG, aside from its story, the gameplay is what really keeps you coming back for more and this is no exception as Marty relies on his magic notebook to dish out damage.”

Start Select Review
“Overall, SMRPG offers a rich, deep RPG experience. What’s even more impressive is that it does so on a mobile platform. Saturday Morning RPG is one of the most ambitious games I’ve played in a long time, handheld or otherwise, and it’s unbelievably well done.”

Gamezebo Review

“Finding all of the references is certain to be a favorite talking point for gamers too. Mighty Rabbit did an excellent job working in tributes to all kinds of intellectual properties from the 80s. It’s a satirical take, for sure, but one that has players laughing along with their childhood memories, not at them.”

Pocket Gamer Review

“A heart-felt love letter to Japanese role-playing games and ’80s popular culture, Saturday Morning RPG is likely to prove irresistible to anyone over the age of 30.”
“This incredible degree of fan-service for ’80s kids is likely to cause many to fall in love with the game instantly, but once the novelty has worn off the engaging RPG gameplay thankfully picks up the slack.”
“Thanks to its zany humour, gripping battle system, and seemingly endless collection of ’80s tributes, Saturday Morning RPG is one of the most unusual experiences you’ll see on iOS in 2012.”

App Safari Review

“The tongue-in-cheek and nostalgic humor will keep you pining for your ever-fading youth, while the intricate battle system will leave you impressed with the developers, a fantastic team effort by Mighty Rabbit and Joystick Labs”

Screw Attack – Check out Saturday Morning RPG!
“This is seriously the coolest RPG that you need to pay attention to!”
“It will completely change your mind about mobile gaming as a platform.”

USA Today – Portable Picks: ‘Saturday Morning RPG’
“The combat feels real good. Attacks are easy to execute, and the game provides plenty of power-ups and magic spells to mix up the action.”

Kotaku – Saturday Morning RPG Is Chock Full Of Cartoon Goodness And 80s References
“Pop culture references are the hook in Saturday Morning RPG, but what might be most impressive is its soundtrack, a lovely set of tunes composed by Transformers fan cult hero Vince DiCola and collaborator Kenny Meriedeth. This is not a game you’ll want to play on mute. But it’s a game you’ll want to play.”
