DarkSeas Games Developing Spiritual Successor To Road Rash

Soulskill posted 1 year,10 days | from the don't-do-an-image-search-on-that-name-fyi dept.

Classic Games (Games) 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."

Motorcycle games like this glorify motorcycles and cause children to want to ride them, leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths each year.

Exactly. That and the 16 bit music were the best parts about the game.

I spent hours playing Road Rash II on the Mega Drive with my brother and my friends and it was pure arcade action. If I wanted to play GTA or a shooter I'd play GTA or any number of shooters. Road Rash was something special.

Also, damn you you Public Enemy! Made me Nitro right into a hidden cop car again!

Re:Hrmmm (1)

hairyfeet (841228) | 1 year,9 days | (#43447237)

I can't remember which one I had, may have been Sega CD, but the soundtrack caused me to wreck more than the enemies! It had Kid Rock before he became famous and a bunch of other killer tracks (The Kid Rock track was "Somebody's gotta feel this" which kicks ass at 110MPH).

But what made it great was like I said, nothing to make you lose concentration on the road, you could switch music tracks, you could swing your weapon, hit the booster...that was pretty much it. This let you just lock onto the road and zone out and enjoy the shit out of the game. if they add all the targeting crap like GTA drive by missions I know I won't buy it because that ain't Road Rash, that is GTA which is lame. I want killer tunes, fast speed, simple controls, THAT is Road Rash!

Re:Hrmmm (1)

jo_ham (604554) | 1 year,9 days | (#43448465)

That must have been the Mega CD version or the Playstation version. The original 16 bit version on the Mega Drive had purely midi music. It was one of the classic 16 bit soundtracks.

It may have been Sega CD, I was one of the dumbasses that were first adopters. I thought it would be used to make huge Phantasy Stars, fit all these huge games that would cost a mint to make in a cart, what did we get Marky Mark...yuck.

But the soundtrack caused me more wrecks than the bad guys, it was the kind of music that just makes you want to drive full speed so my bike was full blast, just jamming to the tunes while peeling my butt off a truck...GREAT GAME. Man I hope they don't screw it up by making it GTA on bikes.

Kickstarter advertisements on Slashdot (4, Insightful)

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.

Have fun donating your money to EA and other "established" piece of crap studios then. The whole point of kickstarter is to give people a chance who otherwise wouldn't have one. That they have a prototype this far along is already a good sign. How hard it is to donate a whole dollar? People like you need to stop bitching every time they see something someone else has made, and start helping instead.

Re:Kickstarter advertisements on Slashdot (1)

Chryana (708485) | 1 year,9 days | (#43446467)

A cursory glance at the project webpage would have shown you that their team has worked on at least a dozen game, and has a combined experience of 35 years in video game development. They also have made a demo which, in my opinion, looks pretty cool. I'm not sure that flinging names like college kids is deserved in this case. I am also curious as to what extra guarantees you would expect to give your backing to a similar project. After all, if the project succeeds, there will be no further kickstarter fundraiser for the next ones (hopefully).

Re:Kickstarter advertisements on Slashdot (2)

guises (2423402) | 1 year,9 days | (#43446617)

They have ten people with a combined experience of thirty five years, that's nothing to brag about. They list a bunch of games that team members have "worked on," but give no indication in what capacity. These aren't established vets, like Brian Fargo or Tim Schafer (who have kickstarted projects to which I was happy to donate), these are... I don't know what to call them that doesn't sound insulting. These are people from whom I would be happy to buy a product, but not people to whom I wish to give a donation.

I'm also wondering how they're supposed to be funding more than a year's worth of development from ten people with only $160,000.

I didn't see any mention of a demo. Could you provide a link? Or do you mean the video? The video sells the concept, and that's good, and it's a good concept. But concepts are a dime a dozen.

I'm tempted to donate but they don't have any kind of timeframe or estimated release date on the kickstarter page. I know, it is very hard to estimate, but any project of this size by a professional team will have some idea of when it is likely to be finished.

No promises, just a vague "hopefully this year" and some kind of estimate of the work that needs to be done would inspire a lot of confidence. Clearly they already have a fairly advanced game engine, if the video is to be believed... Although to be honest when I saw it I thought that while it may have been real-time it was a bit too perfect to be someone actually playing it. There were a lot of set pieces demonstrating features in a very short space of time with no cuts.

Go on, convince me.

"open source" the source code after release.. (2)

musikit (716987) | 1 year,10 days | (#43444299)

I like this. i think it is the funniest part of the project. as since they are using unity to build their game, the source code is already open source. as unity only does AOT compile on the iOS platform. so weather you want to give it away or not. you did! look at any unity android game and open the apk yourself and you can use a c# decompiler to get back to original source (minus comments). I actually asked for AOT compile for all platforms on unity and was ignored.

but thanks for "open sourcing" it. i guess.

Re:"open source" the source code after release.. (1)

Paul Fisch (2896223) | 1 year,10 days | (#43444729)

I've just never tried to decompile it because I don't make it a habit to steal other people's code. I have seen decompiled XNA code before though and it was a mess. Method and Variable names were not preserved. In either case though when it is open source you actually have permission to take it and use it in your own game. With a game as complicated as this you will also want to be able to use the associated assets as well. Also comments will probably be pretty useful to have.

Re:"open source" the source code after release.. (1)

there is more then "stealing other's code" to decompile a unity program. like i don't know test how good it is at protecting my intellectual property. but i guess everyone who uses a decompiler is a thief. ohh wait you used a decompiler. you must be a thief.

My response was maybe a bit much, but you suggested I haven't really used unity because I have never tried to decompile someone else's code, which is ridiculous. I mean I could understand doing it to try to see how someone else implemented some particular feature, but it is still not great to be decompiling and studying other people's code without permission.

There's nothing substantial about what he said. It amounts to little more than "Target, J.C. Penny, and Walmart make cheap products that don't live up to my expectations, so why should I believe Macy's is going to be any better?"

He could do some actual research into who these people are, and form an actual opinion on whether he thinks they deserve his charity or not, not some broad nonsense that doesn't really contribute anything into the discussion.

All he has done is outline the general problem with Kickstarter: often times it doesn't pan out. Everyone already knows that, or should know that, if they use the site and fund projects.

Look, I grew up on Road Rash. I love the game.

Genesis, Amiga, Playstation, fuck ya, I played the game. I mean, I played the game.

If i want to relive the game, I got so many choices. That's why I'm not worried that the new game, Road Redemption, has added more on to it. So we got samurai swords and guns now. Sure, compared to the original game, it's different, but dudes, you can still play the original game. In fact, if this was just updated graphics of the original game, I'm sure people will be bitching that it's not any different.

Look, shit we enjoyed in the past, we can't get the same sort of joy out of it now, so we get something new. Relax, enjoy.

I'm going to point out that I really don't use the chain, bat or kicks much in Road Rash, they slow you down. Just a little dodge and zoom on past the dudes. After all, you are more racing the clock then the other opponents.

And to be fair, I first bitched about Road Rash 3D not being the same exactly as the Road Rash I've come to love from the Genesis (and Amiga) version. But guess what? It was decent enough in itself. Granted I think it's the N64 version that sucks dogshit...

I definitely think the whole catch up and attack in gameplay is a bit more interesting because the guns put perhaps too much advantage into people behind you with no real way to defend yourself aside from driving spastically. If you add too much stuff like this, driving the race becomes less and less practical and becomes more about simply killing everyone until there is no one left.

Also a bit concerned about decapitations. Does that end your run? No matter what happened to you in the original games, you could get back on your bike. Game over in one swing seems a bit much.

To confirm, this is not my project. (5, Interesting)

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.

About three years ago I worked on an 'official' new version of Road Rash for EA, unfortunately it was cancelled after about 6 months of development. We were never told why it was cancelled, it was coming along rather nicely. Posted as AC obviously....
