From the Boston FIG 2013 main article:

I next met with Ben Shostak, the owner of the awesomely named Barnyard Intelligence Games to take a look at the upcoming High Strangeness.  I’ve always been a sucker for an 8 or 16-bit RPG with quirky humor, so this was right up my alley.  Any game that features a talking cat, chiptune music, and pixel art is OK in my book.  I’m interested in the switching mechanic which lets you go between the 8 and 16 bit version of the world.  I’m still a bit uncertain as to how it works or what makes you want to switch between worlds, but I’m more than willing to upvote it on Steam Greenlight so I can find out.  For more information, check out the website.
