'Rad Rodgers' (ALL) Gets PS4 And Xbox One Date, PC Content Update Coming - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 12, 2018 @ 8:19 a.m. PST

Rad Rodgers is an action-packed 3D side-scroller inspired by the precision platformers of the '90s.

Bringing back the 90's-era platformer inspired by classics like Commander Keen, Conker, Ruff'n'Tumble & Jazz Jackrabbit, Rad Rodgers is an action-packed scrolling platformer with two characters: twelve year-old Rad Rodgers and his console-come-to-life ball busting buddy, Dusty.

Dusty is an overused last generation video game console who's likely just one restart away from a red-ring-of-death. He rides along in Rad's backpack, providing (sometimes questionable) verbal support, and lays waste with his punching power gloves.

Rad is a rambunctious but spirited young boy who maybe plays too many video games. After dozing off at the tail end of a long night of gaming, Rad awakens to find his dusty old console has turned itself back on. Suddenly a vortex emerges and he's sucked into his TV, where he finds himself the star in his very own video game adventure.

Dusty is Rad's good-hearted but foul-mouthed, now-sentient game console. His clock speed isn't what it used to be, but what he lacks for in megahertz he makes up for with experience and attitude!

Rad & Dusty's adventure begins in the First World, taking them through seven dangerous stages of action-packed, humor-filled, hardcore platforming fun. This decaying jungle world has been infected by a fierce corruption, and it's up to the unlikely buddy-duo Rad and Dusty to save the jungle's inhabitants and restore the Elder Tree as guardian of the land.


Slipgate Studios and Publisher THQ Nordic will release Rad Rodgers on PS4 and Xbox One on February 21, 2018 for 19,99 €. All owners of the PC-Version will get a free update (which is already part of the console-version) including:

  • Leaderboards: Gain Scores at the end of each level, and battle with friends to reach the top of the leaderboards.
  • Hats: Unlock more than 20 different hats throughout the game, and customize Rad Rodgers.
  • New Pogo Vertigo Bonus Levels: Grab a Pogo Stick, and see how far you can get in the new Pogo Vertigo vertical levels.
  • New Unlockables: Unlock behind the scenes artwork throughout the game.
  • New Pixelverse Puzzles: Pixelverses have been redesigned, and now include brand new types of Puzzles.
  • 5 New Levels! Fight through 3 new Pogostick Levels, and 2 massive new levels. The Rainforest Rampage, and Raging Ruins.
  • Minibosses! Introducing 2 minibosses throughout the game.
  • 4 New Enemies! The new Spiky Jellyfish, Powerful Laserheads, and 2 new Minibosses brings new and exciting challenges to the Rad Rodgers enemy roster.
  • Brand new weapon! The legendary "Excalibat" from Rise of the Triad, makes a return to Rad Rodgers. Become invincible and smack your way through hordes of enemies with the mighty Excalibat.

Key Features

  • Weapons: Dusty arms Rad with a variety of radical bad-ass weaponry. The Bolt Blaster has unlimited ammo, is easy to use, and more than enough firepower to get the job done. The Phoenix Cannon shoots out a fiery bird whose wingspan lights enemies ablaze as it flies by. There are 5+ weapons in this first chapter, with more to come.
  • Sounds & Music: Our composer Andrew Hulshult combined his years of musical experience (both performing and writing) with his passion for retro-style gaming to create an amazing and authentic soundtrack for the game complete with MIDI-inspired music... And synthesizers!
  • The Pixelverse: While Rad and Dusty are a great team, only Dusty can enter the electrified Pixelverse -- a dangerous spacetime-breaking region that exists behind the game world. Dusty enters the Pixelverse when necessary to repair glitches in the running game world, allowing both Rad & Dusty to continue their journey.
  • Classic Easter Eggs: The game features hard-to-find collectibles in sometimes even harder-to-find classic secret rooms. Use your precision platforming skills to collect 'em all.
