Now isn’t this great…!
It’s my brother’s birthday and this Claw-thing crashes into our house and takes away Sammy! I guess someone has to play hero now…

Pitiri 1977 is an adventure-platformer with much exploration in both world and story, and is paying tribute to its classic pioneers – not only by its gameplay, but also by its background story. A narrative, that is set in 1977 (the glorious year of Star Wars IV, the Atari 2600, the Voyager One spacecraft & Led Zeppelin's “Presence”), in an imposing world, created by using hand-painted graphics, characters, solid physics and a 1970s soundtrack, gradually opened up by the player’s acquired abilities.

You play as a kid with supernatural powers, whose brother has been kidnapped by an unknown evil. On your quest to get your brother back, you venture through a twisted 70s science fiction utopia that lies beyond the known…

Winner of the 'Content Award 2010' for Games and the Impulse XC Sponsorship 2010, Pitiri 1977 is shaping up to be a rather striking-looking game. - indiegames.com

Pitiri 1977 is easy to pickup, feels like a familiar platformer with the added excellence of special abilities to progress through each level, and is visually appealing is almost every way – especially the fantastic cutscene. - indiegamemag.com

An excellent platformer game that is extremely well polished and has some very creative game play mechanics. - www.clickteam.com

A jawdropping cinematic intro and an introductory level in a beautifully handpainted suburban landscape signal that these guys mean serious business. - Adam Dobay (Klikdisc)

Not bad! The game itself is short and a bit inconsistent. Art, Sound, and Mood are great though! Definitely something for 70s kids & 70s fans!

A short but interesting story, with An alternative ending. Hand-made Graphics and a fairly simple game system. It poses No great challenges but has a good narrative. Music and sounds are quite accomplished.

This game has a wonderful charme with a lot of hints and easter eggs from the '80s. You feel the love and passion from the gorgeous design to the really nice soundtrack. Also I enjoyed the story and the overall experience of the game with its puzzles, gimmicks and set design very much. So if you ask me I definitly recommend this game!

Pitiri 1977 is a short but nice little game, obliviously made by 70s pop culture enthusiasts. It basically works by solving little puzzles with the abilities you gain, while jumping and running through the levels. The story itself isn't too sophisticated but packed with little anecdotes of the time it plays in. The level design and soundtrack are very well made and charming as well as the characters. Although it's a rather short game it manages to create a nice atmosphere. I enjoyed playing it.

Stylish that seems to be one (if not THAT) Main Focus in many Of Today's games. Doing nothing against it, if, even if there is a Game behind it, that is interesting. Here I lost interest in it after just under half an Hour. It may well be that more will be offered later, it will never be experienced. So far I have hardly seen enough Jump 'n Run And we prefer to stay silent about the Puzzles. To top it all off is in a Game that has a Retro as a role Model no Gamepad Control with it ...

Disappointing. A Game I can't recommend to any Platformer fan. + Looks quite nice at first Glance-Graphics are ultrabillig and seem like being snippeted together by a First-grader-Control Is inaccurate and a Tick too spongy-jumps become partly gambling-animations of the Double Jump (Jump roll) Sometimes incomprehensible play-off-Next Goal is always unclear-Sense of the Collectable triangles completely unclear-First Special ability (rolling through the Area like a lifeless Chunk Of stone) = ridiculous-Bugs during Conversations with the biotope robot (Speaking Window with Missing Text, Text without a Speaking Window around, Conversation just stops in the middle of it)-Running text Can only be skipped completely, but not completed/accelerated with a Touch of a button (as usual with the Games in this Genre)-(Nor) Trophies-(nor) Trophies-( Still) No Trading Cards Paws gone. Here Hops and Malt are already lost after the alleged "Gold" release.
