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."

    On the one hand I fully sympathize with people who are enthusiastically supporting projects like this. I wanted the Dreamfall kickstarter to make gobs of money and considered a Slashdot submission but held off, feeling that it was inappropriate. There are so many of these projects now that I'd hate to see Slashdot flooded with this sort of thing.

    As far as this particular project is concerned: I make a point of only donating to teams that already have considerable experience and who I know can do the job well and in reasonable time. These people are not that. It's otherwise a good idea, but I don't think bankrolling the dreams of some college kids is really the best use of Kickstarter funding.

    That is what I thought when I saw gun targeting...NO, FUCK NO, you are missing the whole point, what made that FUN was that it was simple, you could grab a chain or a bat and whack the other guy or kick him into traffic, but because they kept it simple you could still just race and win.
