Quick progress update

Hey guys. We're nearing our official exit from Steam Early access, and this progress update focuses on two things: online multiplayer and story

Online multiplayer

Online multiplayer has been a big challenge for us. Because of latency, doing melee combat online is never easy. Doing it in a game where a player can easily move 3 meters between data sends (30 data sends/second), presents even more of a challenge.

Fortunately, thanks to some really clever latency compensation algorithms, we're now at the point where two teams of 8 people and hundreds of cars can all occupy the server at the same time and have a really fun gameplay experience.

Our final goal is to support 32 person servers. The main roadblock right now is bandwidth limitations - how much data the server is forced to send. As you add more players, this goes up exponentially. We're confident that with some more data optimization, we can achieve this, though 32 player support might come in a post-release patch.

We'll be releasing an alpha version of the online game to you guys very shortly.


We've finished writing the Road Redemption script and are in the process of hiring voice actors. All told, we're looking at 5 main characters (you, your mentor, the leader of all of the game's 4 gangs, and the ultimate antagonist who everyone is chasing).

Our goal with the story has always been to provide context and meaning to the game's campaign mode without getting in the way too much. We think what this accomplishes that goal.

More updates soon.

About This Game

Lead your motorcycle gang on an epic journey across the country in this brutal driving combat adventure.

Earn money by completing races, assassinations, robberies, and other challenges in your path. As you collect loot, you'll upgrade your character, your bike, and your weapons.

One Life To Live

Driving a motorcycle at 100 mph while trying to hit someone with a pipe is dangerous, and death can come quickly. There are no extra lives nor continues. Fortunately, every time you die, all the experience you've collected can be used to upgrade your character, your bike, and your weapons.

In the multiplayer mode, you can work with your friends or fight against them. It's up to you.

A Truly Epic Quest

Road Redemption takes place in a post-apocalyptic America, ruled by a brutal dictator. Without telling anyone, your gang leader has decided to head to the capital on a desperate assassination attempt. When the government catches him, the consequences for your gang, and everyone you know and love, will be devastating.

It's up to you and your fellow gang members to race across hundreds of miles of dangerous highways in order to track down your derelict leader before the government does. What you do next is up to you. Do you try to stop him in order to protect your family and friends from punishment, or do you join him in a risky attempt at ending the oppression once and for all?

Other Features

  • Single player campaign fully playable in multiplayer mode.
  • 4-player splitscreen co-op.
  • Online mode coming very soon.
  • Massive, expandable skill tree. Rack in the loot to upgrade your character, your bike, and your weapons.

This game is the most fun I've had on any driving game. That thud that other drivers make when they hit the road after you whack their stupid faces with a baseballbat never ceases being satisfying.

Case Study:

Was in a race for my life, under attack by the 666 biker gang. Attached C4 to a bike and kicked it into a crowd of bikers. Action movie explosion ensued and the game stated "You killed PewDiePie". This is the happiest I have ever been. This game is worth playing hourly just to kill PewDiePie again and again.

Buy this game if ya grew up playing Road Rash, ya will not be disappointed.

The main reason for this review is not, in fact, to rave about this great game, but to rave about the amazing customer support from the developers. I've been dealing with a lot of "big" companies' customer support, and getting terrible customer support (including having my requests shut down with no communication - thanks, Sony). So when I emailed the developers of Road Redemption regarding issues around a 32 bit win7 4GB machine, not only was I highly surprised to see a responce within 4 hours (give or take 20 minues) but having an actually answer (in this case, I was informed that the issue had been noticed and the game would be patched in a few hours). In one contact, the developers not only smashed my expections, I now use them as an example of a company doing it right. So, developers, please please please, keep up the great work.

"Road Rash" is back and better than ever thanks to Road Redemption!

Well I have to say that this game has been so much fun, I just completed the early access version of the game, and I must say that I am thoroughly impressed.
I like to keep things simple, so I will give you a list of things I liked and disliked from this title!

Things I enjoyed from Road Redemption:
  • Great controls! (Game handles pretty well, keeping that balance between realism and fun.)
  • Action Packed (Game keeps players on their toes, with funny wipeouts in the mix of things.)
  • Lots of Weapons (Tons of things to fight with, including guns, which Road Rash never had.)
  • Upgrades and Perks (They work wonderfully and really help the player through the race.)
  • Different Environments (They change as your progress.)
  • A Secret Map (Are you guys kidding me... Freaking Rainbow Road from Mario Kart?!?!YES!)

Things I feel need some work:
  • Optimization (The maps can become very very laggy with frames dropping to around 5 FPS, I have a pretty beefy rig with a Radeon 7970 and it shouldn't have problems with a game like this.)
  • Voice Overs ( I really wish there was some kind of voices for the police and riders, not really dialoge, more like "Oofs" or laughter and maybe a "Pull over!" from some cops now and then.)
  • Character Customization (There really isn't any, but this is early access and I have a feeling this could change easily.)

Overall this game is really fun and takes me back to the good 'ol PSX days sitting around my house, playing Co-op smacking my father with a chain in Road Rash Jailbreak.

23 Hours, 100%

My experience with Road Redemption:

My game crashed plenty of times.
My game crashed on the final turn of the final level.
I repeatedly got my ♥♥♥ kicked.
I got kicked off of bridges and into oncoming traffic.
I didn't get to swing a chain
I fell between buildings and off of rooftops multiple times.
I got stuck on car bumpers.
I emptied entire clips into the sky trying to aim.
I got the Rainbow Road song stuck in my head at work.
I couldn't adjust the difficulty settings.
I was launched into the air by highway grenades over and over.
I was challenged.
I maxed out my character.
I kicked just as much ♥♥♥ as was previously kicked upon me. And then some.

... and I loved all 1380 minutes of it.

Every crash report I sent, I received a response from the developer Ian with his phone number attached within the hour. Even at 5am.

Anyone who says these guys don't care about their game, don't update the game or have abandoned the game couldn't be further from the truth.

This game and this Dev team is a testament to how Early Access should be done.

Ekhm... ok, so it's closest thing to Road Rash for now - but IT'S NOT ROAD RASH - keep that in mind.

It's worth it, but i would wait for final release, you might be a little dissapointed right now.

- It's closest thing to Road Rash avaible.
- Lots od nice weapons. SMASHING!
- Daily updates.
- Nice Skill Tree.
- Idea itself?

- It doesn't feels like i'm driving motorcycle for some reason.
- Sounds feels like i'm playing game from 90's.
- Grindy.
- Weird physics?
- Lack of customization.
- No multiplayer yet.
- Only 5 motorcycles for now.

So yeah... better just wait few months till it will be a little more polished and with multiplayer(i REALLY hope).

One caveat before I start. This game is still unfinished. There are really only three tracks, and half of a campaign to play through as of my last playthrough.

With that out of the way, this is pretty much the absolutely insane Road Rash successor that I didn't know I wanted.

The main campaign mode (the only thing implmented in the version I've played) is semi randomly generated (meaning that you'll get random victory conditions on the tracks), and has rogue like elements like permadeath and an ability to buy stats with the money you collected during a run. The campaign, so far as I can tell, still follows a basic track structure. It goes desert tracks for a few races, rooftop tracks (which is where most of the glitches seem to currently reside), winter track (which is basically a greyier version of the desert track), and quite literally Rainbow Road from Mario Kart. What really makes these tracks dynamic is the random effects you can get. Like all oncoming traffic, weather effects, or even raining and explosive cars. Some of these effects are amazing, and really push the races from fun but basic to absolutely crazy.

The actual bike handling is pretty forgiving, if a little stiff. It's pretty easy to stay on the track, barring some occasional blind turns. I do kinda wish there was more tactile feel to the handling, since it really doesn't feel like you are even on a bike. But in the context of the game it isn't so bad. Because it works well with the game's combat system.

Which is the meat and potatoes of this game. It is amazingly satisfying to club someone over the head with a pipe. Most of my time in the campaign mode was chasing down and braining rival racers. The more racers you take out, the more money and better weapons you are granted, thus continuing the cycle of violence. The gun play seemed okay, but I honestly didnt try it much, since I really just wanted to beat more racers (and police, and random traffic) with melee objects.

Of the games three basic tracks, the desert/winter ones are the best realized. The rooftop tracks I had issues falling out of the level geometry and getting stuck. And the Rainbow Road alike track makes for an interesting easter egg, but wasn't much fun to race on, with constant tight turns and narrow track width, and no traffic to interact with. But these are things I'd assume would be smoothed out over time.

Overall, thus far there's not a wealth of features in the game, but what is there is quite fun. The combat is fun enough that I found myself slowing down just to hit more racers with blunt objects. And doing so while cars are dropping from the sky and exploding is quite amazing. I'd recommend it once it becomes a more complete product. Even now it's pretty fun, but the glitches and lack of content mar it currently. If a totally crazy and still very playable bike combat game sounds up your alley though, I'd go ahead and recommend it now.

Brings me back 1995, thanks

THe game works great for early access. Just waiting for online coop etc...

If this game had a mp3 player to load your own music it would be prefect.

8/10 so far!

This game is basically Road Rash , the game , not a rash while you got on a road.. nvm. I would rather say what this game has and what it needs since it is still in early access rather than Pros and Cons.
Game Has -
Complete nostalgia , made me feel like a 10yr version of me , when i used to play this game in summer vacations wearing nothing but shorts and eating chips.
Good Driving and simple controls.
A decent campign and good amount of quick race
You can fire ak-47 while riding a bike and also c4
Really Fun From The minute you will launch it
The Ability to bring a big Smile On Your Face.

Game Needs -
Better Soundtracks while racing rather than just an electric guitar being played , (Miss The Rusty Cage song and Mirror in your Eyes song)
Better Sound effects , When ever you Kill a biker , the sound effect is like you collected a mushroom in Mario.
Bring back The Voice dialogues or qoutes everytime someone kills.
Bike Customization, some vinlys or colors perhaps ?
A bigger size of campaign.( Thought havent completed mine , because once You Die you have to start all over again )
Bigger races , races are really short ( Like the one Napa valley 29.9 miles ? )
Definetly Multiplayer ( Game would be dead in 12hrs if it doesnt have multiplayer)

Won't Be Fair To give this game a rating out of 10 since it is not completed still . But Devs You are on the right path , So goodluck :) ( Eagerly waiting for this game to get completed )

the Road Rash remake we all wanted.
In its current state the game runs great, decent visuals, the combat is good, that sweet sound of landing a hit and dropping the other biker brings great joy everytime.
Shooting guns in the game is my only complaint, feels ackward, maybe cause I use the controller to play, haven't tried playing using M/B yet, that might help. overall fun game, when multiplayer rolls out its sure to make it much better.

I haven't played this game for long (40 minutes at the time of writing lol), but I already love it! Not everything in the game has the "perfect" feel to it. It definitely has its own little glitches so far, but none have been game breaking for me. I got stuck inside of a boulder and just backed out of it. That was the worst one, but it's an easily correctible one with a patch here or there. It in no way took away from my enjoyment of the game. It definitely has that Road Rash feeling. It's obvious they're trying to take it to the next level, and I like that. I can't wait to get some friends over to try this game out. (They don't "PC"..... yet lol)
