Quick Road Redemption Progress Update

17 likes

Hey guys.  We're nearing our official exit from Steam Early access, and this progress update focuses on two things: online multiplayer and story

Online multiplayer

Online multiplayer has been a big challenge for us.  Because of latency, doing melee combat online is never easy.  Doing it in a game where a player can easily move 3 meters between data sends (30 data sends/second), presents even more of a challenge.  

Fortunately, thanks to some really clever latency compensation algorithms, we're now at the point where two teams of 8 people and hundreds of cars can all occupy the server at the same time and have a really fun gameplay experience. 

Our final goal is to support 32 person servers.  The main roadblock right now is bandwidth limitations - how much data the server is forced to send.  As you add more players, this goes up exponentially.  We're confident that with some more data optimization, we can achieve this, though 32 player support might come in a post-release patch.  

We'll be releasing an alpha version of the online game to you guys very shortly.  

Story 

We've finished writing the Road Redemption script and are in the process of hiring voice actors.  All told, we're looking at 5 main characters (you, your mentor, the leader of all of the game's 4 gangs,  and the ultimate antagonist who everyone is chasing).  

Our goal with the story has always been to provide context and meaning to the game's campaign mode without getting in the way too much.  We think what this accomplishes that goal.

More updates soon.

Road Redemption and the Historic Louisiana Flooding - Game Delay

Below is an email we've been sending out to gaming news sites to help spread awareness about the once-in-500 years Louisiana flood and how it's impacted the region, and unfortunately, the development of Road Redemption:

The developers of the videogame Road Redemption (www.roadredemption.com), the Road Rash spiritual successor, are sad to report that the game's development has been stalled by to the record flooding in Louisiana. 

 Road Redemption’s developers are based in Baton Rouge and New Orleans Louisiana. The flood devastated the region, damaging over 40,000 homes, including the home of Jason Tate, studio co-founder and senior programmer

“We hope to have the whole team back to work on Road Redemption as quickly as possible but right now our priority is making sure that everyone on the team, and their families, have a safe place to stay,” said studio co-founder Ian Fisch. “We hope that all of our kickstarter backers and fans will be understanding in these tragic circumstances, and if they’d like to help they can visit www.braf.org to make a donation.” 

 Road Redemption has sold over 100,000 standalone copies since launching on Steam Early Access in late 2014. Road Redemption was originally scheduled to release on PC on October 15, 2016, with PS4 and Xbox One versions slated for Q1 2017. 

Due to the flood, Road Redemption’s transition from Early Access to full release on PC platforms will be delayed until at least November 2016, with console versions suffering similar delays.
