Description
Release date: Q2 2016
River City Ransom: Underground is a free roaming multi-player fighting action RPG set in a hand-drawn pixel universe.

Lead the Flock through the streets of River City, hunting down evil bosses, shopping for the latest gear, and training hard in the dojo. It's an old-fashioned, jet-fuelled frame-up! You'll join Alex, Ryan, and a whole cast of new characters in your struggle to bring Slick to justice and clear your name. But be careful: nothing is as it seems.

River City Ransom: Underground Features:
  • Over 100 hand-drawn levels
  • 8+ Heroes, each with dozens of unique fighting moves
  • An open world where you fight, shop, and upgrade your characters' abilities
  • 10 tenacious and varied enemy gangs to conquer
  • Local or online multiplayer co-op campaign story
  • Local or online multiplayer arena fighting mode
  • Super-responsive peer-to-peer (P2P) networking technology

This highly anticipated sequel to the original retro classic made a splash on Kickstarter, and is now making its way to your PC, with your help and support.

Early Press

"Oh man oh man oh man this is going to be awesome." - Ian Birnbaum, PC Gamer

"The art direction stays true to the original, but the animation is phenomenally smooth... add in a soundtrack by Rich "Disasterpeace" Vreeland, it's hard to imagine that this won't be a winner." - Jonathan Holmes, Destructoid

"Those seriously have to be some of the silkiest smooth moving pixels in recent memory. Though the updated combat system sounds equally enticing." - Matt Hawkins, MTV Multiplayer

"More than any other Kickstarter project I’ve seen, the team's intense reverence for the original really comes through here." - Ewan Miller, VG247

I was pretty keen on getting this, then saw in the trailer Abobo from double dragon and Dad from the same guys that made battleblock theater. Hope there are more sweet cameos!

Looking forward to playing this. The original River City Ransom is my favorite game on the NES.
