Road Rash creator "ready to do another one" using Kickstarter if there's interest.

That's what he said on Reddit, answering a topic about why Road Rash never resurfaced.


"It hasn't resurfaced because I was burned out after Road Rash 3," Geisler answered. "But I'm ready to do another one now. I just needed 20 years off.


"I'm ready to make a better one now. I miss playing it too. If there is enough interest, I'll do a Kickstart on it. BTW thanks for the post. Dan Geisler, programmer/co-designer Road Rash 1, 2 and 3."


Geisler posted a picture of himself holding a piece of paper with the date on and a "Hi Reddit!!" message. It matched the picture on Dan Geisler's LinkedIn profile.


"I am who I say," he wrote. "Road Rash was my baby. I will need to talk with EA to get the rights. But I don't think they have a lock on motorcycle combat any more."


EA is the sticking point, and it's unlikely Giesler could coax the IP from EA even with millions of dollars he presumably doesn't have. EA hasn't sat idly on the licence either. There was a Road Rash 2006 project in development at EA Warrington that never saw the light of day, but some art and concept video spilled out.


Geisler, however, needn't use the actual Road Rash name; he could opt instead to do a spiritual successor.


Dan Geisler is the president and CEO of a computer games company called 5X Enterprises. I can't find out much else about the company, which makes me think it could be a one-man band.


Who would build the Road Rash game should he seek to fund it through Kickstarter? He's had a long career in games and software contracting, so perhaps he has a good, small studio in mind.

Do it! :)

I would love to think this would happen!!

Unfortunately if it does happen it will most likely be a XBLA game and not full retail which makes me kind of disappointed.

@ Mac .... Just excited as you about this fella :) 

The consoles will be a stretch goal.

I might donate 'cos I want the game to be made but I feel Kickstarter's heaven for scammers though.
