If I was on the road and a person on a motorbike screamed past me wielding a machete, "rascal" isn't the term I'd use for them. Rascal Riders however is a new project from Polish developers Cameleon Labs that brings the kind of motorbike combat of Road Rash into a futuristic deathsport. Considering the last Twisted Metal game seemed to have tolled the death bell for vehicular combat games, I'm excited to see a title that's looking to deliver some arcade carnage.
Whilst this footage is from a pre-alpha build of the game, Rascal Riders looks like a really fast game. What's interesting is that along with single-player, Cameleon is looking to build a free-to-play multiplayer mode as well.
Even more ambitious is the attempt to make the game totally cross-platform, meaning PC players will be able to fight against gamers playing Rascal Riders on their Android phone. It's a big task and Cameleon Labs has a long way to go on its Indiegogo crowdfunding attempt but this is an interesting project, not like one I've seen on crowdfunding for a while.
