- Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland, the first Rugrats game in nearly 20 years, has a free PC demo available now, offering a nostalgic throwback for fans.
- The game allows players to control iconic Rugrats characters in old-school platforming, with a choice between 8-bit and HD graphics modes.
- While the exact release date is yet to be determined, the demo provides a preview of the game’s retro style and 90s nostalgia to look forward to in March.
Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland has finally been given a release window set for March, but fans who are eager to get a taste of the first Rugrats game in nearly 20 years can play a free PC demo right now. The new game from developers The MIX and Wallride is a throwback to retro platforming, promising a double dose of nostalgia for those who grew up with the Nickelodeon cartoon.
Nickelodeon is responsible for the birth of nearly countless iconic cartoons, but Rugrats is one of the most beloved to come from the company. Following Tommy Pickles and his group of fellow babies, the show is centered around a group of precocious tots and their unique view of the world around them. The show was one of Nickelodeon’s most popular Nicktoons, running from 1991 until its end in 2004. The franchise spawned several movie spin-offs and a variety of video games, but there hasn’t been a game featuring Tommy and his friends in a starring role for nearly two decades, until now.

Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland Demo Now Available on Steam
As part of this month’s Steam Next Fest, curious fans can now play a free demo of Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland. In the game, players will be able to dive into some old school platforming as the iconic Rugrats characters, Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, and Lil. The Steam Next Fest is a great way to experience a large variety of free demos, and Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland is a fun choice for those who are in search of a little nostalgia.
Not only does the game boast throwback platforming, but there are two modes players can choose between. There’s an 8-Bit graphics mode that calls back to the classic NES games and an HD mode that embraces the art style the TV show is so well known for. Nickelodeon has a giant roster of great shows, and Rugrats is at the top of the list, which makes this free demo even more exciting.
There was once a time when NES platformers were some of the best challenges in gaming, and many fans will likely enjoy returning to this retro style of gameplay. Rugrats: Adventures in Gameland also gives newcomers the chance to experience the world of Rugrats in a way that calls back to the show’s 90s roots. Although the game’s exact release date in March has yet to be determined, players can still get a free preview of what to look forward to next month.
