It's a little late (for which we apologize), but a playable alpha version is available for all of our alpha level backers and above!  (Download instructions below.)

Again, we'd like to thank you all for making Road Redemption possible.  We appreciate all the feedback you can give us on this first public build.  

Upgrading your tier:

It's not too late to upgrade to a higher tier, including an alpha level tier.  Just send us an email at pr@darkseasinteractive.com 

Tell us what tier you'd like to upgrade to, and we'll respond immediately with a custom link.  

Buying the alpha:

For anyone you know who didn't back the project, the alpha version is currently available to purchase at www.roadredemption.com  Please tell your friends.  

The more presales we earn, the more we can invest into making Road Redemption the biggest and best experience possible for you.  

What's in the alpha:  

The alpha version of Road Redemption is only a small sliver of what will be included in the final version, but we think it's a lot of fun already. 

 It represents something like 5% of the content that will be featured in the final experience.

Here is a short video of the current alpha version:

Road Redemption Blog - multiplayer co-op (input wanted)

This new post discusses various ways that we could implement Road Redemption's multiplayer co-op.  We'd really like you guys to weigh in and help us decide.

Read it here: Road Redemption Co-op Blog Post 

We'd also like to draw your attention to our friend Adam Grantham's diabetes-management videogame.  

Every year, hundreds of children die from incorrect insulin administration.  Even more end up with brain damage. If you know any type 1 diabetics, you know how challenging and complicated it can be to correctly balance your glucose levels.  

Adam's game aims to train these children on how to balance their glucose, but it does it via an action RPG that they would actually want to play.  I'd like to play it, and I don't even have diabetes.  

Adam's also a very skilled game designer and artist, so we trust the game will be awesome when/if it gets funded.  

Here's the link to his kickstarter: Magi and the Sleeping Star kickstarter

Road Redemption Blog - motorcycle physics

Comment

We'll be giving you guys a status update on the Road Redemption alpha tomorrow.

In the meantime, we've posted a new blog entry on motorcycle physics.  It answers an interesting question: 

Why does leaning to the left steer your bike to the left, even when both tires are facing forward?
