For this week Weekly Kick Pick I decided to go with this unique game that is nearing the end of the line. The game is close to meeting its stretch goal, so I figured why not show it some support. If you like what you see you can find a link at the bottom of the post for the Kickstarter campaign.
About RELENTLESS REX
Hello, my name is RELENTLESS REX, and I’m a game-developing T-Rex looking for humans who want to help create a real video game about my life as an insatiable, rage-fueled devastator…
RAYMAN made sweet, sweet love with RAMPAGE, nine months later their baby was raised by BIT.TRIP RUNNER (the family butler), and that unholy monstrosity grew up to become RELENTLESS REX: THE VIDEO GAME!!
It’s a hand-drawn, action-adventure platformer mashup in which you help an assortment of characters explore and race through dangerous locations, using your environment, special power-ups, weapons, and the help of others to try and escape my bloodthirsty jaws. But just when you think you’re safe and chillin’ at the local tavern, I come storming back again and again, destroying everything in my path and stopping at nothing to catch my next meal (you).
Fun with a dark sense of humor, the game alternates between racing for your life, interacting with the game’s colorful characters, and going on bite-sized adventure quests. Your ever-changing roster of victims will be subjected to all manner of twisted tortures—and even if you successfully navigate each perilous land, you still may not make it out alive! (Hint: A dinosaur’s gotta eat.)
The first few “jungle” stages are near completion, and I want YOUR help to determine what comes next! Subsequent levels are going to be community crowdsourced, and Kickstarter backers are getting a massive say in the design of the game’s future characters, powers, and environments.
Want a radioactive Rexzilla that spits out fiery meteors at the likeness of Justin Bieber while inside a giant monkey’s guts?—Let’s get nuts! Want an Alien Queen Rex (complete with chest-bursting parasite) chasing a transforming robot out through a space ship’s air lock?—Let’s rock! The POINT is that the rest of the game is giving YOU the agency to create whatever comes next and to take this thing in any crazy direction YOU want !!!
