Road Redemption meets Kickstarter goal

Road Redemption meets Kickstarter goal
Christian Mills

Road Redemption, a street racing game, hit it’s Kickstarter goal with a little over two days left.  The game appears to be a spiritual successor to the infinitely entertaining Road Rash games.  From the screen shots we see a similar point-of-view of a guy on a motorcycle hitting another racer with a baseball bat.  Classic Road Rash.  The game will be initially released on PC, MAC and Linux in August of 2014, with a Wii U release “following a few months after”.

As a huge fan of the original Road Rash games, I am very excited to try this game out.  It is an interesting decision to release the game on Wii U initially, while having the XBLA being a stretch goal.  This is a opposite of what we usually see with indie game releases.  Maybe this is a sign of better things to come for the Wii U’s indie game support (especially with talk of Nintendo no longer requiring an office space to acquire dev kits)?  Well, here’s to hoping.

Here is a link to the Kickstarter.

    Good to see the Wii U is held in high regard by indie developers. I hope this game captures the spirit of Road Rash, even if it isn’t from EA. I haven’t played a great Road Rash game since the 3DO.

    Speaking of Kickstarter projects, have you seen this one … ?

    Since I love racing games, I will definitely have to try out this game. I have not played much Road Rash so maybe this well compel me to go retro and pick up some Road Rash too!
