Dear gods, the Death Inc. news was good but this is bloody brilliant:
It’s a spiritual successor to Road Rash.
I played that game on a friend’s Sega Master System back in the day:
Not much to look at, certainly, but it was a lot of fun. Sadly it has been a long, long time since the last Road Rash game – the last proper one came out in 1999.
So Road Redenption gets me a bit excited. It’s using Unity 4 and as such will support Linux just like most other Kickstarter games.
It’s interesting to see how common that feature is becoming. What’s more unusual is that this game is apparently going to be open sourced when it’s done.
This is a fairly unusual occurrence at this stage in a game’s lifespan. Whether it’ll pay off remains to be seen but I certainly approve.
By the looks of thing there’s to be a story to the game as well. This I like, particularly as it’ll be dealing with outlaw MCs. Hopefully they’ll not screw that up, it’s not that easy to do right.
Oh and the lowest tier that gets the game is $15. Not bad!
