Road Rash Inspired Road Redemption Meets Funding Goals


Road Redemption, a bike combat game inspired by Road Rash, has met its Kickstarter goal. Developer Dark Seas Games were hoping to accumulate $160,000 in funding, and as of this morning, the game is over $164,000, with two days still left to go before the Kickstarter campaign ends.


Road Redemption, as previously detailed, will have multiple modes, including Combat Race, Police Escape, Assassin, Convoy Assault, Escape from Enemy Territory (which involves racing across rooftops) and Ambush. When you begin the game’s single-player campaign, you’re presented with a world map, featuring different missions to play.


Cash you earn from missions can be spent at the bike shop, where you can unlock new bikes, customize your bikes including their colour, and buy equipment like weapons and armour. Meanwhile, Multiplayer modes will include both free-for-all as well as team-based missions.


Road Redemption is in development for PC, Wii U, MAC and Linux. Dark Seas also hope to develop an Xbox Live Arcade port, should they manage to hit their stretch goal of $178,000.
