Road Redemption, a spiritual successor to the timeless Road Rash bike combat series from indie developer DarkSeas Games which we reported on last month, has secured its Kickstarter funding, raising $182,791 with over 4,400 backers after beating its target of a modest $160,000 just two days before the deadline. As a result, Road Redemption's road map has a planned August 2014 release date marked on its sat nav for PC, Mac and Linux,with a Wii U port planned a few months later.
A number of on-going stretch goals have since been added to the project, including an XBLA release later down the line and, intriguingly, Oculus Rift support if the team can raise $198,000, which can be previewed in the video below:
Interested in gaining early access to Road Redemption and want to pretend you're playing Road Rash in glorious motion sickness-inducing VR courtesy of Oculus Rift? You can still pledge donations on Road Redemption's kickstarter website to get involved in the project, but places for some of the packages are rapidly running out.
