'RAD' (ALL) Reveals Starting Town And Second Biome - Screens

by Rainier on April 23, 2019 @ 9:22 a.m. PDT

RAD is a 3D action rogue-like game set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced Armageddon not once, but twice.

In RAD, players take on the role of a teenage protagonist who must venture into the Fallow, an ever-changing radioactive wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures. It’s here that they’ll find the solution to heal the world, and transform the cracked, barren landscape into a lush source of new life. But humanity’s future comes at great personal cost, as the deeper they journey into unknown lands, the more they expose themselves to gnarly toxins which bless, or curse, them with strange new mutations.

The fate of the world depends on the player, a sweet bat, and whatever new abilities they gain as the world around them ravages their body, twisting and mutating them into something far less than human, but far more powerful.

The new assets focus on the town hub where players start their journey and return to between runs out to the Wastelands. In town, players will encounter unique characters with quirky personalities including The Elder, the oldest and mysterious dude living on the edge of town; Bob, who operates his custom-built town gate; and Billy, the town farmer if he only had something to plant.

Also highlighted in today’s assets are screenshots of the second biome. The further players venture into the Wastelands, the more dangerous and corrupted the environments and enemies become.

RAD will be available in Summer 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, with a limited Closed Beta via Steam from Monday 8th April (sign up here).
