Bandai Namco Entertainment and Double Fine Productions have revealed RAD, a 3D action rogue-like game set in a post-post-apocalyptic world where humanity has faced Armageddon not once, but twice.
You play as a teenage protagonist who must brave the Fallow, an ever-changing radioactive wasteland crammed with unknown and unspeakable creatures.
It is here that you must search for the solution to heal the world, which can transform the now cracked, barren landscape into a renewed source of life.
However, securing humanity’s future comes at great personal cost. The further you journey into unknown lands, the more you will expose yourself to gnarly toxins that will bless or curse you with strange mutations.
That will ultimately ravage your body, twisting and mutating it into something far less than human, but far more powerful.
“We’re excited to finally reveal RAD – and the post-post-apocalypse – to Bandai Namco Entertainment fans worldwide,” explains Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe senior vice president of digital and marketing, Hervé Hoerdt.
“RAD is a fantastic addition to our growing family of games developed outside of Japan, with a unique story, interesting characters and trademark charm created by critically-acclaimed US developers Double Fine.”
RAD project lead Lee Petty adds: “The team at Double Fine and Bandai Namco have worked so hard to get RAD together, and we’re so excited for our communities to jump into this wicked wasteland journey. We hope fans will enjoy the game as much as we’ve enjoyed building it.”
RAD will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2019.
