Spreading Like A Rash: Road Redemption

By Adam Smith on September 24th, 2014.

Road Redemption is a newcomer in the world of motorbike gangs. It probably has Road Rash tattooed somewhere on its body but it isn’t directly descended from the bandanna-clad grandaddy of motorcycle combat games. Or, if it is, the mean ol’ bastard won’t acknowledge it, so it has a name of its own. Alec has already taken to the asphalt, putting a youth of BMX stunt riding to good use, and the game is now available, albeit in Early Access form. There’s undoubtedly a launch video on Steam but I’m going to show you what happened when Mr Meer rode his bike through a carstorm instead.

EA may not be making the most, erm, popular calls these days, but in terms of sheer quantity of beloved classics, you certainly can’t take a motorcycle-propelled sledgehammer to its accomplishments. That last bit, however, is the exact premise of Road Rash, a largely console-based illegal bike racing classic that stole the hearts of starry eyed youths and – as unbiased science has proven – transformed them into vicious brigands and/or motorcycles. Failed reboots and false starts, however, have left the series to the ravages of time, which is basically the saddest thing. But now, hope’s arrived on a gleaming two-wheeled steed. Introducing Road Redemption, a spiritual successor from a bunch of former Road Rash devs industry vets who did not actually develop other Road Rashes. Now, rashes of the non-Road variety? I can’t say for sure, and I don’t think I want to know.
