THQ Acquires Rad Rodgers IP - New version coming for all the backers!

Posted by Interceptor Entertainment (Creator)

 We can finally reveal the big news-

The last few months, we've been hard at work on what the future for Rad Rodgers should be, and today we can happily announce that we're partnering up with THQ Nordic, who has acquired the Rad Rodgers IP, and given us enough resources to create the version of Rad Rodgers we always dreamt of.

This means that the next version of Rad Rodgers will have a TON of new content. Everything from tweaks and fixes based on Feedback from you guys, new levels, new weapons, new and improved pixelverse mechanics, and most importantly - Physical releases on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The new "Ultimate Edition" of Rad Rodgers will have a new name, and all existing owners of the game will get the new version as an update for free. 

All backers who pledged for the PS4 version will also receive the brand new version of Rad Rodgers!

We can't wait to share more details about all the great additions to the game.
We'll make sure to keep you guys updated here!

Thank you for your patience!

      It's great seeing the Rad Rogers team continue to rise. I look forward to finally getting the Game on PS4.

      Depends on the deal. Marvel owns the fantastic four but fox has full ability to screw up the movies. They could have sold the IP with the provision that they have the game rights to the IP.

      I mean you have marvel and both Sony and Spider-Man as well as fox and the Fantastic Four, things like the Wheel of Time and The movie rights, etc.

      You can't sell an IP and keep full creative control... it doesn't work like that. I know a few people who work in games publishing, so yeah.... i'm fine with getting publishing support... but not selling IPs. There a hundreds of indie publishers, hell i can recommend one... You didn't need to sell your game to get funds.

      @Eric, the Digital and Physical PS4 version will be the new "Ultimate" Rad Rodgers version, which you will receive for free.

      @Tracey, Hal
      We went to kickstarter with a dream. We wanted to make Rad Rodgers.
      Part of the kickstarter campaign listed a range of stretch goals of all the things we wanted to do if we managed to raise enough money.

      After we released the game, we started scouting for possible partners, as we REALLY believes in Rad Rodgers, and want to treat you guys with MORE than you were promised (We released the game already). We wanted to find a partner who could help us take Rad Rodgers to new heights, previously impossible for a small studio like us.

      After months of negotations, we finally came to an agreement with THQ Nordic. And agreement that primarily benefits you guys (That was the goal).

      This means that not only do we get to develop extended content for the game, as we always wanted to - The game has muscle behind it (THQ).

      We're still completely independent (THQ does not own the Studio), we still have 100% creative control, we still have 100% say of what we want to do with the game, and no other studio will work on this game)

      This is a win-win for both you and the rest of the fans.

      "Partnering up" ... from what I´ve read it sounds more like "THQ bought our IP and now, we´re developing the game for them" I wish you guys simply the best - but sorry ... I have to ask:

      Has the game sold that badly on steam, that you had to sell the IP ? What exactly are THQs plans for the Game as a whole ? Will you guys be the developers no matter what, or is there a possibility that THQ will withdraw you as developers from the project ?

      As I said, I wish you the very best, but I´ve backed enough projects that an update like this is making my alarm-bells ring.

      I've been in this situation before... So you may feel VERY differently in a few months..

      Tracey Craig If it wasn't the kickstarter, we wouldn't have what's released so far and it would have been much harder and painful for them to convince a big publisher to give them money, so at least I'm grateful for what we have...

    10. Kay Bensberg on

      Again “blabla“ an NO release date or keys for the PS4 Bakers! Can't believe in this anymore...

      1. What was the point of crowdfunding?

      2. Was it part of your original plan to sell to a publisher?

      3. Does Nordic own your studio?

      Here's my theories.

      1. You have no creative control.
      2. You get no say in the game.
      3. Another studio works on Rad.
      4. We get no further updates.

      Congrats on the partnership guys! Looking forward to seeing this on Xbox One.

      Thx for the ultimate edition.

      Fred and the Interceptor team, this is really some amazing news. I am extremely happy for all of you. Keep up the killer work! If this is April fools, I will be deeply saddened.

      Also - is it possible to change our survey options to Xbox One? I don't think that was originally going to be one of the platforms before this update.

      @Daniel, It's not :) It was announced yesterday
