Road Redemption Gets New Gameplay Footage

A little over a year ago we saw Road Redemption enter the Kickstarter scene and successfully reach its target in order to bring us a Road Rash-style thrash on the highway that’s been missing from our lives for all too long.

Backers can now gain access to the game’s Alpha version and the devs have released a new gameplay video that brings all sorts of memories back from our Mega Drive days. You can buy into the Alpha now and secure a Steam copy later on for an admittedly pricey-looking $33.99. Head on over to the game’s website for more information.

Console support was one of the game’s stretch goals, but there’s currently no mention of when or what other platform we can expect this on when I checked the website. A quick look at their forums confirmed that Oculus Rift support is something that is being considered though. For now, check out the new footage of the biker combat-racing game and let us know what you think. Continue reading Road Redemption Gets New Gameplay Footage

Road Redemption Kickstarter Ignites Road Rash Memories

Seeing as EA seem like they’re never going to do anything with the Road Rash license, an indie team, DarkSeas Games, have launched a kickstarter to help fund their own Road Rash-inspired title, Road Redemption. Road Rash was a motorbike street racing game that had its heyday during the 90s on the Mega Drive where gamers could use chains, bats, kicks and punches to get to the finish line first. Frankly, we’ve missed it a lot.

Development is already well under way, but don’t expect to see the game until July 2014. The game will be released on PC, Mac and Linux. Console versions are likely to follow as stretch goals. The team say 360 development would be easy for them, as they have experienced staff in that field. They also hope to bring the game to the PS4.

The video shows a decent amount of gameplay with lots of weapon-based motorcycle combat to enjoy. The use of firearms seems like a strange choice as the Road Rash titles never bothered, but we suppose the times have changed. There will be a GTA-esque story involving joining a biker gang and taking out rival gangs. Mission types will involve violent races, escaping the cops, assaulting convoys and more.

More details along with the various amounts you can pledge for various rewards can be found at their kickstarter page. Continue reading Road Redemption Kickstarter Ignites Road Rash Memories
