Radical Heroes is a new take on the tried and true beat’em up formula. First we took everything we loved as kid’s growing up in the 80’s; the video games, action figures, cartoons and arcades. We sat down and thought, how can we merge all of this awesomeness in to one project? Better yet, how can we achieve this being there is only two of us? Well, that’s where Radical Heroes was born!
Radical Heroes is a 3D 8-Bit beat’em up at its core, but that is where the similarities to other beat’em ups end! We have worked very hard to stay true to what made these iconic games so fun and addictive in there raw game play and brilliant simplicity, but have also tried to bring some new ideas to the table.
One big aspect of Radical Heroes is that It is a digital toy line. You have action figures and playsets, and the universe they exist in. You play with the play sets to unlock more figures. This leads to the other big aspect, which is collecting! Each character in Radical Heroes is represented as an action figure and each stage is represented as a play set. Each playset represents one major event in the Crimson City Crisis story line.
Apogee has a legacy of finding indie developers and working with that talent to bring their creations into the market place. When we first met the two brothers of Mad Unicorn and they were working on such an ambitious project we had to learn more about them and their game.
We could hear the gaming passion in Noah and Moses' voices when they presented Radical Heroes: Crimson City Crisis to us. They spoke just like true gamers who wanted more out of the gaming industry than simply playing games other people made. They wanted to play games they liked when growing up and what better way to do it than to design and develop your own games. We knew instantly that we had to work with this team to get their game released. Apogee Software is proud to put its name next to Mad Unicorn's release of Radical Heroes: Crimson City Crisis.
The entire story, all six playsets and figures is considered a wave. A wave is one story in the Radical Heroes universe. In this case Diesel's story. The story is told over the course of the six included play sets ending in a final boss battle. As you play through the playsets and eventually complete them, you will unlock the play sets as well as the figures and any secrets you found along the way for your own personal collection to play with whenever you want to. Each and every playset and figure unlocked is also playable in co-op multiplayer mode!
Radical Heroes runs on a custom in house C++ engine. As of now the engine natively outputs stereoscopic 3D or SBS 3D on the fly in real time with custom IPD adjustment and custom IPD restriction solutions. The engine only requires the HMD’s positional data, at this point Radical Heroes still needs work in the positional data area, but that's why we are here. Our custom integrated VR ensures a cohesive experience and compatibility across all HMD’s even with the current lack of positional tracking.
Radical Heroes will benefit from VR by offering something for all players. For those helping to pioneer VR, the 3D effect in Radical Heroes is amazing and the use of colorful pixel art and a fully 3D world really adds that extra pop in perception. Giving early adopters of VR a unique game to get excited about. Radical Heroes will give players the “Holographic effect” so sought after in the mid 80’s & 90’s but could never quite achieve authenticity. In an endearing way this is a love letter to our earliest VR hopes and dreams.
If you are a fan of retro arcade action, beat'em ups, or fun this is the game you have been waiting to back. Radical Heroes is 80 / 90% finished. Mad Unicorn Games is only my brother and I. We develop Radical Heroes in our spare time with zero budget. All expenses at this time have been out of pocket.
My brother and I both work full time jobs, throw family in the mix and were looking at just a few precious hours a week. Radical Heroes is a labor of love and we want to make Radical Heroes into something epic for retro enthusiasts and casual players alike to enjoy. For that, we desperately need your help!
The $25,000 we are asking for would allow us to complete Radical Heroes in a reasonable amount of time, With the core resource needs met to release an amazing game out in to the wild! Thank you for your time.
