Road Rash co-designer wants to do a new game with Kickstarter
EA owns the IP.
Eoad Rash was an amazing motorcycle game which was released ages ago on the PC and other platforms. There was an addictive nature about it and it was a 2D game. You could use chains, baseball bats to knock other riders off their motorcycles and of course zoom through the roads at high speeds.
Well, it’s been 20 years since we saw a new Road Rash game. The last one was Road Rash 3 and we could see a new one if Road Rash co-designer Dan Giesler has his way. He wants to use Kickstarter to make a new game he revealed on Reddit.
“It hasn’t resurfaced because I was burned out after Road Rash 3. But I’m ready to do another one now. I just needed 20 years off,” Geisler said. “I’m ready to make a better one now. I miss playing it too. If there is enough interest, I’ll do a Kickstarter on it.”
He also revealed that he will stay true to the original game.
“I would keep the mechanics 2.5D. when you go full 3D physics I think you lose something. Although a new version would be in 3D, I’d restrict the physics as needed, cause reality tends to suck,” he said.
“I wanted the handling to be like the old mechanical arcade games. It was all about reaction time and picking a lane. Randy Breen the co-designer and producer of the game gave me a motorcycle physics book early in the project. I put it up on my shelf and never looked at it.”
He has verified himself by posting a picture on Reddit, and considering the IP is owned by EA, we could see a spiritual successor to Road Rash.
