Patch Notes - Update #15 - Retrosity and OST

It's hard to believe that we began working on River City Ransom: Underground five years ago, and the game released a little over a year ago. We wanted to celebrate that milestone by releasing a few "cutting room floor" features that were close to our heart. So let's get things started with what's in this update, "Retrosity", available now and as an OST bundle for 50% off this week!



Retrosity Filters

Nothing complements a retro game nicer than a pair of nostalgia goggles. You'll now find "Retrosity" settings in your game's Graphics settings, which allow you to relive some of your favourite old school palettes and filters. As some astute players noticed, we had most of the palettes in the code already, but couldn't get the filter experience polished in time for launch. We adapted and extended the excellent work of J. Kyle Pittman, and you can read more about the techniques used here. Try them all!



Exploding Barrels

Mysterious barrels are popping up all over River City. The rumour is, these nefarious slush buckets are being delivered late at night from trucks from Merv Enterprises' private landfill. Use them to your advantage for crowd control!



Alexis the Hero

By popular demand, Alexis is now an unlockable hero. This means you can take her through the story campaign as well as in the arena. To accommodate her story challenge, we've added a few moves to balance out her ground game.



Shoulder Ram

Use this sweeping knockdown attack to put distance between you and your foe, and open up juggling opportunities.



Spin Kick / Grapple Kick

Alexis now has a suitable secondary attack to keep enemies at bay sneaking up behind, and which she also employs when grappling.

OST Bundle



We're happy to announce that the OST in both MP3 and FLAC formats is available for sale starting now, either standalone or as a bundle. Dino Lionetti regales your ears with a classically inspired River City soundtrack. If you missed out on the OST backer rewards, this is a great time to pick this up at a discount.
