If that’s not weird, Shovel Knight is now a #playable #character in Road Redemption, the spiritual successor to Road Rash. It is also, kind of awesome to see the blue-suited hero smacking people with a #shovel at unlawful speeds. Cruising around town in his full suit of armor thwacking people with a shovel, which is admittedly pretty terrifying to think about.
Road Redemption is a procedurally generated combat driving game in which players jet around the country completing assassinations, robberies, races and then some.
Road Redemption is currently available via Steam Early Access.
Shovel Knight, star of the 2014 award-winning platformer, is stepping into 3d to take on outlaw biker gangs in Road Redemption this holiday season.
Yacht Club Games and Dark Seas Games have teamed up to bring Shovel Knight to Road Redemption, a spiritual successor to Road Rash. All owners of Road Redemption will be able to play as Shovel Knight as of December 22, 2014.
“This incarnation of our stalwart, blue hero could not have us more excited and I can’t wait until he crosses the generational gap from pixels to glorious polygons in Road Redemption.” – Nick Wozniak of Yachtclub Games
“Shovel Knight is basically Road Redemption’s version of The Terminator. He’s this plate-armored unstoppable juggernaut, and it’s great to have the opportunity to include him in our game.” -Ian Fisch of Darkseas Games
