Interceptor Entertainment, an independent game developer known for the 2013 Rise of the Triad remake, has just announced that they are working on a new platform game known as Rad Rodgers.
The company hopes to fund the development of Rad Rodgers through Kickstarter. The campaign’s goal has been set at fifty thousand dollars, a number that may seem high, but it’s probably quite small compared to most high profile games’ budgets.
Rad Rodgers is an action-packed 4th-wall busting 3D side-scroller inspired by the precision platformers of the 90’s, powered by today’s Unreal Engine 4.
The assets shown in the Kickstarter page show a lot of promise, and Interceptor Entertainment‘s latest title features voice acting by industry legend Jon St. John.
The minimum pledge level required to get a copy of the game once it’s fully released comes down to US$ 8, with higher levels unlocking more goodies, as usual. For instance, backers who pledge US$ 17 will be able to access Rad Rodgers‘ beta release on Steam, and there’s even a tier directed at streamers/Youtubers interested in doing community giveaways, with 15 copies of the game being offered for US$ 45.
