Remember that article we did last month about Road Rash? Well, now a similar game is raising funds on kickstarter. The new game has been dubbed “Road Redemption” and they are looking for capital so they can make the Road Rash game you’ve always wanted.
The original Road Rash was a motorcycle racing game that had a unique twist to it — you could use a variety of weapons to knock other riders off their bikes to increase your chance of winning. There’s a lot of nostalgia around this game due to its fun factor. The new Road Redemption will include modern gameplay such advanced AI, online multiplayer, a single player mode, and a combat system that follows the laws of physics — no auto-aim here guys. Even though Dan Geisler — one of the original programmers of Road Rash — is not involved in the development Road Redemption, it does have his blessing and support according to his twitter.
“Road Redemption takes the motorcycle combat-racing gameplay, pioneered by the Road Rash series, to the next level.”
Road Redemption brings state-of-the-industry combat controls, insane crashes, destructible environments, AI, ragdoll physics, and online multiplayer to the classic formula.
The Road Redemption team has been hard at work since early 2012, though preliminary design work started as far back as 2009.
“Road Redemption is the experience that we’ve been dying to play for over a decade. We need your help to make it the best experience possible.”
