See how Road Redemption is shaping up in new video • News • PC • Eurogamer.net

Last May Road Rash spiritual successor Road Redemption cruised past its $160K Kickstarter goal with $173,803. Now developer DarkSeas Games has released an alpha build of its motorcycle combat game.

It's also released a video showing how the game looks in its current iteration. It's got plenty of gruesome sledgehammer swingin', katana slicin' racing action. Check it out.

The alpha costs $40 (about £24) and comes with a digital art book, digital soundtrack, a pre-order exclusive barbed-wire baseball bat, and access to all future versions of the game.

The final version of Road Redemption will feature diverse, procedurally generated environments, splitscreen and online co-op, and you'll be able to earn money to customise your character with all manner of equipment.

Road Redemption is aiming for an August release and will appear on PC, Mac, Linux and Wii U.

No way is that worth £24, i reckon £10-15 is a fair price

Online coop and multiplayer could be a good laugh i reckon

Why is it not worth £24 ?
It cost £15 to see a 3D movie at the cinema that last 2 hours if you're lucky
:confused:

EDIT - actually, only just seen the footage. Maybe it does fall into the 'budget' category. :D
Be awesome on XBLA :)

Bought this today. Pretty good fun but it does need some work. The current alpha only has 10 levels as well so you hammer through it in half an hour. Some pretty good ideas though. The weapons, particularly the pipe bombs are a blast to use (pardon the pun). Some of the levels are pretty manic. The car Storm one for example sees a constant downpour of vehicles smashing onto the road for you to navigate through.

Hit detection is dodgy as well. Sometimes I'd plough into some cars and wouldn't come off my bike but at slower speeds I'd fly around 50ft.
The physics though are pretty cool. Its hilarious hitting bikers off and seeing other carnage. The combat just reminds me of what it was like all those years ago on Road Rash. Looking forward to seeing how this progresses but I wouldn't recommend anyone buy in just yet as its very bare bones at present.

Jesus, did people really fund a kickstarter for this? There's a reason it's a "lost genre"....

I've got it. Its quite good fun for what it is but needs a lot of work. Some ideas work well and others not so much, collision detection is awful at times and its also far too easy but playing through the 10 stages of the alpha had some funny moments.
