Sal Romano wrote:Steel Rats is a visceral and groundbreaking evolution of the 2.5D action arcade genre, fusing destructive, octane-fueled motorbike combat and death-defying stunt gameplay, set in a visually stylized retro-future world.

Become one with your bike as you master the realistic physics-based controls of these powerful and deadly vehicles. Choose how you want to tear through the stylized and highly detailed environments of Steel Rats, traversing up, down, left and right as your bike speeds fluidly in and out of the game world, over rooftops and through enemy-infested tunnels.

Join the Steel Rats, a larger-than-life punk biker gang who once ruled the streets of Coastal City and now find themselves as the last line of defense against an invading horde of destructive and constantly evolving army of junkbots. Choose your character, and unlock new special abilities and customizable bikes to fight with style through vast areas of the city in a deadly mix of speed, agility and firepower.

Steel Rats features music from the Japanese rock trio The 5.6.7.8’s, who shot to fame after being featured in Kill Bill: Volume 1 with their hit song “Woo Hoo.” A remastered version of their track “Hoovering” will be featured in Steel Rats and was recorded exclusively for the game in the famous Parisian Midilive Studios, where music for films such as Taken and Hellboy II: The Golden Army was also recorded.

“Steel Rats is set in an atmospheric, stylized, retro-future version of 40s and 50s Americana,” says Jacek Gburczyk, Tate Multimedia art director. “We’ve taken everything we love from America in that time period and mixed it up with our favorite parts of dieselpunk and steampunk influences to create something that has a wholly original feel and character.”

Wojtek Biliński, head of studio at Tate Multimedia, says, “In terms of gameplay, we want to have something for speed runners, racers, brawlers, stunt drivers and all those who want to pull off insane and stylish fight moves from the back of a turbo-powered motorbike. We hope that everyone will enjoy playing Steel Rats in one of these ways and discover the many styles of gameplay we aim to deliver.”

It's by the same studio that made Urban Trial Freestyle, so they have experience in motorcycle-themed games: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2434 ... Freestyle/

The devs were nice enough to send me a key for this, so I will be streaming the first hour or so later tonight on Patreon with extensive commentary. It looks like the motorcycle segments of Hard Corps: Uprising have been turned into an entire game. It's a very cool idea, so I am interested to see how the execution holds up. Look for the link to the stream on Patreon, or come to Discord and I will post it there when I go live.

That's a pretty cool illustration, btw.
