RAD, a post-apocalyptic roguelike from Double Fine Productions has been given a release date. The game will arrive on August 20, 2019, for PS4 Players.
In RAD the fate of the world is in a teenager’s hands. Along the way, they will gain new weapons to take on the hideous creatures roaming the Fallow, the name of the wasteland Double Fine has created. On top of that, a selection of mutations adds a dose of variety and unpredictability to the game, forcing you to adapt to new situations and make the most of what you have.
As you become more powerful, absorb more mutations, and become less and less human you must find out how to heal the world and turn the cracked, desolate landscapes into a breeding ground for new life. However, if you die, your teenager is dead forever and you will be forced to start the journey over gaining new mutations and weapons along the way.
