River City Ransom: Underground Now Has a Launch Date
In September 2013, following months of preparation and planning, we – a small group of passionate developers – posted a Kickstarter project to make a video game:
A love letter to Technōs Japan, whose fighting games filled our childhood afternoons. A new chapter in the quirky, fun, and endearing world of River City Ransom.
Launched on the first day Canadian Kickstarter projects were possible, we had no idea if ours would resonate. It did. Over 5,000 of you pledged your support, and together our journey began.
It wasn't easy. We wanted to do it right, to give you everything that we wanted to see in a fighting game: online multiplayer, co-op, arena death match, jaw-dropping fighting moves, hours of gameplay, Easter eggs, laughs, seemingly endless variety, and fun with friends.
To get there we have had to work far longer than any of us expected. We had to rebuild our engine. We often failed in our communication with you. But no matter how hard it got, our desire to see this game exist, and your excitement to play it, kept us going. Many of you told us to take our time, and get it right. We hope we have done exactly that.
And now, it is our absolute pleasure to present to you, our launch trailer:
Thank you to our beta backers, who have been helping us by their feedback. We are rapidly closing in on the final product, balancing the game (current setting: Nintendo Hard Was Easy), smoothing the edges, and making it more fun to play with fellow humans.
River City Ransom: Underground now has a release date, and it's February 27th, 2017.
