The Angry Video Game Nerd has been sucked into Game Land! It's up to you to guide him through three terrible and treacherous retro game worlds! Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures: Remassturd and Angry Video Game Nerd II: Reassimilated come together for the ultimate nerd experience! This is the definitive way to play the series... and more!

This deluxe collection brings you every stage from both of famously tough action platform games, remixed & re-balanced plus an all-new, never-before-seen final chapter to bring the experience together for the ultimate experience in nerd rage


Enhanced Visuals!

Experience the 8-bit ugliness in a whole new way!

Updated Game Engine!

And by updated, we mean "Rebuilt the first game from the ground up in the superior second game's engine." Trust us, it feels better.

Improved level design and difficulty options!

Both games are infamously hard-as-nails, but Normal and Easy difficulties come with infinite lives, so take as many attempts as you need to beat the challenge. Level designs have been improved upon to really nail the balance between tough and fair.

Or perhaps you loved the limited lives and ludicrous overuse of instant-death blocks in the original release? We've got you covered. Just select "Old School" or higher from the difficulty menu and you'll be cursing the developers' name in no time.

Quality of Life Improvements!

Faster respawning (When you die, which will be often, you'll just pop right back out of the Toaster and get on with your day, just like nature intended!), multiple save slots, accessibility options and more mean that anybody can take on the challenge.


Perhaps you've never played either of these games, perhaps you're new to the sequel, or maybe you have spent years achieving the world speedrun record for both, but whatever your experience with the series, there are plenty of surprises in store for you!

New Chapter, Completing The Story!

"Wait, the game had a story" You ask? To which we say: ...Kinda! But there's more of it now! Beat both games to unlock the epic finale!

And more!

This remixed and rebalanced collection contains every stage from both famously tough action platformers, Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (2013) and Angry Video Game Nerd II: Assimilation (2016), making it the definitive experience in NERD rage. Pre-Orders for the region-free physical edition are available for a limited time with expected fulfillment during Q2 2022.

The Angry Video Game Nerd has been sucked into Game Land! It’s up to you to guide him through three terrible and treacherous retro game worlds! Angry Video Game Nerd: I & II Deluxe features two previously released Nerd titles, polished and ready for your frustration!

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (2013) is influenced by retro classics such as Mega Man and Castlevania and is a fun, fast-paced 2D action-adventure based on the characters and memorable moments from the online series The Angry Video Game Nerd. With multiple playable characters, power-ups, and tons of secrets, Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures is the perfect challenge for fans of old-school difficulty, fart jokes, and/or the Nerd universe.

In Angry Video Game Nerd: ASSimilation (2016), a mysterious beam from space changes the world into a video game, so it is up to the angriest gamer you’ve ever heard to put the “A**” in ASSimilation! Experience the classic, NES-hard challenge you’ve come to love, mixed with new mechanics, abilities, and collectible armor pieces the Nerd must use to defeat his most challenging foe yet!
