‘River City Ransom: Underground’ Is A Game Worth Kickstarting

The legacy of River City Random cannot be overstated. The 80s 8bit classic wasn’t the very first game of its kind (it’s actually the third in the series), but it helped to lay the groundwork for an entire genre, and many others in fact, for many years to come.

Which is why it’s rather perplexing that a proper sequel was never ever produced. There was a remake for the Game Boy Advance, but that’s about it (a sequel was in the plans, for the Wii, but was eventually scrapped). Thankfully, one appears to be finally in the cards, thanks to the modern miracle that is… you guessed it… Kickstarter.

The project is being spearheaded by Conatus Creative, a Western indie developer that managed to secure the rights to the Eastern license, which is quite the coup. It’s also worth noting that the studio is from Ottawa, and only recently did Kickstarter start accepting projects from the Great White North:
