The lights are on
A new video for the spiritual successor to Road Rash shows
off the game's proposed support for the Oculus Rift VR headset, which is one of
the game's Kickstarter stretch goals.
Dark Seas Games' Kickstarter for Road Redemption runs
through May 12. So far, it's going well, with $99,456 of the goal of $160,000
being pledge so far. However, the team has some important stretch goals for the
project if it can raise more than the initial $160,000.
The initial pitch is to make the game, a motorcycle combat
title inspired by the classic Road Rash, for PC and Wii U. However, if the
Kickstarter hits $178,000, Dark Seas will port the game to Xbox 360. At
$198,000, it will make the game compatible with the much-ballyhooed Oculus Rift
3D headset. The video below shows what they have planned for Oculus Rift, and
it looks intriguing (if perhaps too much for those of us with weaker stomachs).
