Road Rash when it was initially launched in 1990, which by the way is now almost 30 years ago, took the world by storm. The pixelated motorcycles racing down the screen, with chaos and good-old 90s violence in abundance. Well those 90 kids are 30 now and they want their favourite arcade game back, which is why they crowdfunded Pixel Dash to sort of reboot the iconic game. The result, well, it’s all the 1080p 60fps action you can see above.
Although there is a story line, since it had to be programmed to appeal to the younger generation of gamers who, would not touch an arcade style game like the original with a barge pole. The new game will feature a bit of a story line, although it’s really easy to skip through the cut-scenes to play regular arcade style road rash.
Of course, one of the major changes from the 90s is the fact that you no longer have to look at pixelated motorcycles with barely legible riders and weapons. Road redemption will be available in 1080p 60fps format which accident, explosion and other riders hitting the floor can now be enjoyed in full hd. There is also a VR version which is set to launch later.
"I would definitely describe it as a spiritual successor to Road Rash," according to Pixel Dash Studios’ co-founder Jason Tate. "When we started the game as a Kickstarter project where we built it as 'we want to bring back Road Rash'. It's a kind of game that hasn't been around in a long time... so it's a motorcycle combat game where you drive around and beat people up. It's a whole lot of fun." Which mean it will be everything we had imagined it to be.
The game itself is launching on the fourth of October 2017, which means that it is a few days away. The studio is also planning to target the game for additional platforms such as PS4, Xbox One and will be adding additional content after the full release on the steam gaming engine.
