We're excited to release Dino Lionetti's new soundtrack for River City Ransom: Underground! Dino, one of the talents behind Cheap Dinosaurs, co-composed the original soundtrack for the game. Now he's back with an all new rendition, blending hints of classic Technōs groove with subtle, catchy, and cohesive tunes we think you'll love.
Now available in Simplified Chinese
Those waiting for progress on modding will be happy to know that the engine is being re-tooled behind the scenes on a volunteer basis to support modding. Our current roadmap will focus on producing an open source version of the underlying engine, Pixel3D, capable of running RCRU content files. This will allow us to distribute modding tools separately from the game itself, providing maximum usability and ensuring mods can run long after RCRU is available.
Thank You, Ethan Lee
One big reason modding is even possible is due to the excellent FNA project, a crisp and accurate open-source reproduction of Microsoft's XNA game engine, created by Ethan Lee. RCRU's rock solid Mac and Linux versions run on FNA. The new moddable engine will run on FNA exclusively, fixing intractable XNA bugs in Windows 10, and allowing us to run from a single codebase. Ethan is a tireless force in the indie game community, whose work has helped preserve and extend countless games.
Now that the OST is released, we will continue our modding efforts as well as work to fulfill the remaining backer commitments, namely, shipping out OST and Game CDs before the end of the year.
Backer digital rewards are ready - we're just working out a glitch and should have them ready in the next few days, and will send an update when they drop.
Have a happy holiday!
