The Indiegogo campaign is up and running
Cross-platform multiplayer on the way...
Description
Take all the emotions you can squezze out of the motorcycle, put them in a Trackmania inspired epic track locations, add some fluency and gameplay dynamics of Wipeout, set it all in a the world of future inspired by cyperpunk and make it a professional sport with violent rules that can only be matched by the ones of Rollerball.

Welcome to the world of the Rascal Rider game and graphic novel.

As a professional rider you will take part in a motorcycle racing series specially designed to entertain millions with its unforgiving and violent rules. Being on track you and all of your opponents will be allowed to use different kind of weaponry to claim your place at the finish line. From melee attacks to shooting rival riders in the back -everything is allowed. The high-tech protective suit and medical bots standing by the track will keep you in one piece during the race, as long as you can stand the pain of getting trashed over and over…

The game will feature both single player and a cross-platform multiplayer modes. In both modes you will have a choice of allowing the use of the weapons with or without restrictions to create your preffered mix of racing and combat. With the handling model balancing between spectacularity and physics Rascal Rider gameplay provides fun and rewarding racing experience.

The game will be released on PC, Mac and Linux as well as on mobile platforms like iOS, Windows Phone 8 and Android, including Android based gaming systems like OUYA and NVIDIA SHIELD. The main focus in gameplay design is to provide equal fun and playabilty for all the platforms to the extent that will allow a cross-platform multiplayer online racing. Any player will be able to race on a platform of his choice with his characters and statistics accessible from every one of them.

Oculus Rift support and console versions are considered, however cannot be confirmed at the time.

The game will be set in the world of the Rascal Rider graphic novel, which will be released in episodes, revealing piece by piece, a story of a lone man struggling to fit in the disturbing world of the future. The first episode, released as a poster and a motion comics trailer, reveals the events leading to the point where the main character “restarts” his racing carrer thus creating the game setting.

At least give us the option to remove the "cartoon shader" effect.

What I can say at the moment is that most of the predictions in here are quite a good ones ;) And that we have just started a crowdfunding campaign with some more details on the project, and we have a new video, and you can expect even more intresting stuff in the next few days... :)

Love it. If it came out that game would be the only thing I would play. Two of my favorite things are in it: Katanas and Motorcycles :)
