Take all the emotions you can squezze out of the motorcycle, put them in a Trackmania inspired epic track locations, add some fluency and gameplay dynamics of Wipeout, set it all in a  the world of future inspired by cyperpunk and make it a professional sport with violent rules that can only be matched by the ones of Rollerball.

Welcome to the world of the Rascal Rider game and graphic novel.

As a professional rider you will take part in a motorcycle racing series specially designed to entertain millions with its unforgiving and violent rules. Being on track you and all of your opponents will be allowed to use different kind of weaponry to claim your place at the finish line. From melee attacks to shooting rival riders in the back -everything is allowed. The high-tech protective suit and medical bots standing by the track will keep you in one piece during the race, as long as you can stand the pain of getting trashed over and over…

The game will feature both single player and a cross-platform multiplayer modes. In both modes you will have a choice of allowing the use of the weapons with or without restrictions to create your preffered mix of racing and combat. With the handling model balancing between spectacularity and physics Rascal Rider gameplay provides fun and rewarding racing experience.

We have released the first episode of the graphic novel, which is a story teaser for a the game, published both as a poster and a motion comic:

You can find us both here on IndieDB and on Steam Greenlight.

The first in game screens, showing the art style at the current stage are finaly coming next week :)

Good introduction and an interesting (art)style. The above render image looks aweome, but seems very different from the aestetics I was expecting. Perhaps I was thinking it would be a bit more noire or punk than sci-fi. 

Rascal Rider sounds somewhat cute (you little rascal! ^^) Ever thought of making slight alterations, like Rogue Rider or Blade Rider or Switchback Rider? (Though I must say, out of these Rascal Rider sounds among the best :) so keep it

The artstyle for the in-game graphics is coming this week. We want to mix a hi-tec world with cyberpunk. Set it in the world that has made it's technological progress, got fascinated by it, and started overusing technology, medicine and science. The world that is on it's way to cyberpunk but not quite there yet. And we want to mix multi-colored lighting with outlined shaders... So far it's looking good :)

When it comes to the title, there are so many little things... From the original meaning of the word, to the connections with "little rascals". But even that: "a dishonest but rather likeable person", somehow fits to the professional sport where the guys are hurting each other and becoming idols this way. In fact "rouge" was the word that we started with, but after some brainstorming it ended up as Rascal Rider.
