Indie developer DarkSeas Games are currently working on a game inspired by the classic Road Rash series called Road Redemption. The company says that if their Kickstarter campaign reaches its goal, it will come to the Wii U in addition to the PC, Mac, and Linux. As of this writing, they have raised just under $60,000 of their $160,000 goal with 18 days to go.
Here's a brief description of the indie title:
Road Redemption takes the motorcycle combat-racing gameplay, pioneered by the Road Rash series, to the next level.
Road Redemption brings state-of-the-industry combat controls, insane crashes, destructible environments, AI, ragdoll physics, and online multiplayer to the classic formula.
There are four mission types planned, along with a multitude of various weapons. DarkSeas is made up of people from a number of well-known developers who previously worked on some very high-profile games, including the God of War series, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Epic Mickey and many others.
