DarkSeas Games Developing Spiritual Successor To Road Rash 77

Feast Huggston writes "Indie Dev Darkseas Games has released an early gameplay trailer (video) of Road Redemption, a modern reimagining of the Sega Genesis (and later 3DO/N64/PSX/PC) motorcycle combat-racing classic Road Rash. The project has been in development since early 2012 and utilizes the Unity 4 engine. It is currently slated for release on PC, Mac, and Linux in 2014, with a stretch goal of eventually reaching the major game consoles. So far, it has raised over $24,000 of its $160,000 pledge goal on Kickstarter. While Road Rash creator Dan Geisler recently stated that he was interested in making another Road Rash, he is apparently not directly involved in this project, although he has given it his blessing. I grew up playing the heck out of this on Genesis and PC and it already appears that for many, a rebirth of this franchise was long overdue."

    Could have done without the head being cut off @ the end. I loved Road rash growing up, this looks like a rehashed GTA.

    Not that Road Rash was all that great but it kept things simple and it was fun.

    Hello Slashdot. This is Dan Geisler, and I want to confirm, that I am not in anyway connected with this project. However, I do support their effort. That being said this is not the vision for a remake that I have in mind. I wish them the best, but the spirit of the game remains in the souls of the original team, and due to popular demand, many of us old souls have come together again. Stay tuned.
