[First Look] A RAD-view on Double Fine’s New Game
This is what happens when the world has undergone not one, but TWO apocalypses.
RAD is the newest game by developer Double Fine and publisher BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment that released on 20 August 2019.
“RAD is a 3D action rogue-like set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced Armageddon not once, but twice.” – Steam
You start the game by selecting 1 of 8 teenagers who will save society. 5 of them are locked when you first start the game, so at this point in time, I’m not sure how you go about unlocking them.
After you’ve selected your character, you go into this cinematic where the dude in the creepy cloak tells you of the woes of your troubled lands; that the machines that generate your power, purify your air, and nourish your crops are inevitably failing. He then asks who amongst the youth would like to volunteer as tribute to scour the Fallow in search of new power sources, to which your character will jump out ever so heroically.
So the creepy cloak man gives you a bat, for you to fend for yourself against the potential horrors the Fallow has to offer; sounds about right I guess.
Well at least the bat works on NPCs.
