What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game is incomplete, but has become the sorta dream western game. What started as a simple 2D runner with an old west style is gradually becoming the ultimate old west sandbox platformer. What you currently see on the surface is a retro style side scroller, but the highly moddable game beneath is capable of near infinite possibilities including a realistic thirdperson action adventure game set in a biome-based shapable continent known as American frontier. The game will include both the original retro style with its gameplay as well as a realistic style amongst others based on the singleplayer story and multiplayer/mod requirements. Not all of the systems are complete or ready for public use, but gradually more and more features will be trickled out, starting with the level editor as well as both local and online multiplayer. The singleplayer is currently episodic in that we only made 2 chapters initially with a third mostly ready but in the works, so the plan is to regularly release new chapters, modes, and other content as it becomes ready. There will also be various beta branches available to try upcoming changes.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current outlook is at least one year, depending on how things develop.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“By the time Early Access is complete, the game will have a complete singleplayer experience, scalable multiplayer from couch gaming to massively online, modding capabilities including a level editor and extensive use of Workshop, and playable across as many platforms as possible.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It is about equal to a demo of the first two chapters, growing with new content over time. Chapter 3 and the prologue are in the game, but not activated, same with the level editor and a few other modes. These will be the first updates, quickly expanding the game beyond the two chapter demo.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“As the game becomes more complete, the price will rise a bit where its worth feels comfortably valued.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Content creation will be great, and as multiplayer is added things will get pretty wild, especially with custom levels and modifications to the base games.”

About This Game

Rescue Love Revenge is an exciting new action-adventure game with an epic story that will unfold as we release future and frequent updates.

RLR features an energetic style with addictive gameplay and challenging levels!


Unrequited Rescue

In Act 1 Chapter 1, we find our hero crossing treacherous terrain to Rescue girls in the high Alpine mountains, guarded by a band of bandana'd bandits. A second character known as The Grizzle makes his entrance in Chapter 2's desert environment. Chapter 3 will mark the beginning of episodic releases in a semi-regular fashion.

RLR's first chapters are a wild ride with unexpected storytelling, fun twitch gameplay, cutegore retro graphics, and addictive music. It's a funny style mixed with a twisted story surrounding timed jumps in a hardcore twitch runner full of secrets in each level. With chaotic combat reduced to simple gameplay, this mode that feels like racing can be challenging and at times a bit unforgiving.


Fortune's Fool

At its core, Rescue Love Revenge is a sandbox game set in The Old West with the first levels focused on having a retro style with auto-attacking and auto-running singleplayer gameplay where only jumping is key. That is only one realization of the game's components for creating experiences. The game will gradually expand and transition beyond the retro style to realistic and other styles, to full platformer and shooter controls, to couch multiplayer and scalable online play, to level editing and game modifications with extensive Steamworks integration.

During Early Access the default retro mode will receive updates adding new chapters beyond one and two with new custscenes and levels, upgrades to the level selection world map, the RLR runtime level editor, multiplayer and other new modes, and the slow build of the nextgen realistic open world sandbox sequel of sorts, almost like two games in one plus mods and episodes for tons of hours of overall gameplay.
