BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., in partnership with Double Fine Productions, has revealed that RAD™ will launch for Nintendo Switch™, Steam®, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One on August 20, 2019.
Today will also kick off the RAD fan art contest, where the community can submit their rad graffiti designs that best represent the game.
Entries will be evaluated by the development team, with the winning design being featured in the game itself, and the grand prize winner receiving additional limited swag items, including a skateboard, glow-in-the-dark action figure, lunch box and floppy disk.
Two runner up winners will also be chosen to receive the limited swag items. Those interested in entering and finding official rules and regulations can visit: www.RADArtContest.com.
“We’re almost at the home stretch and I couldn’t be more excited for everyone to jump into what we’ve built with RAD,” said Lee Petty, Project Lead at Double Fine Productions.
“One of the best parts of developing RAD has been getting early feedback from the community with the Closed Beta. I want our fans and future players to know that they’re being heard and we’re going to bring an experience they’ll want to keep going back to.”
RAD is a 3D action rogue-like set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced Armageddon not once, but twice. Players will take on the role of a teenage protagonist who must venture into the Fallow — an ever-changing, radioactive wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures.
