Game release: “Rad Rodgers: World One” (PC)

Interceptor Entertainment‘s platformer Rad Rodgers: World One is a tribute to the glorious past of videogames, but with a much cruder sense of self-aware humor.

Being trapped inside one’s favorite videogame should be on top of the list of every gamer, and having one’s console as a character by one’s side should be even better. But young boy Rad soon learns that the beautiful world he gets sucked in is full of dangerous pitfalls and enemies, while his side-kick console Dusty is more than just a little bit foul-mouthed. However, it’s not just him who uses curse words, as the inhabitants of the First World aren’t especially nice to the boy, either.

If one doesn’t mind the coarse language and also a bit of bloodshed with enemies exploding, one will find one hell of an action ride in an amazingly detailed world, thanks to the Unreal Engine 4. Voice acting is also very good, and the whole concept of the main character knowing he’s in a videogame isn’t only used for comedy purposes, as Dusty can enter the Pixelverse that lies behind the game world so that glitches can be repaired in the running game world in order for both to progress.

However, the concept of having only one world now with more added later by the developer leaves an uneasy feeling. Planned as a series of standalone “Worlds”, the question remains how much content is left out and how an overall story arc can work if the game doesn’t sell that well, which would be a shame, as it looks gorgeous and sounds like a lot of old-school platforming and shooting fun. Then again the idea also harks back to the shareware times when games were sometimes released in episodes, so who knows where this is going?
